Apolla’s mission is to make sure all dancers are protected and supported by having a pair of Shocks in their bag for class, performance, cross-training, travel, or recovery. Dancers are Artists AND Athletes. As artists, it is in our DNA to ask “Why?” yet tradition dictates what we wear on our feet and we hesitate to evolve. The choice to dance barefoot pushes back against what every other sport already knows: athletes have to protect their greatest assets. Instead, dancers have had to settle for bulky, ill-fitting shoes and infinite rolls of KT tape, ice, and braces with no thought on how to properly train and recover or the consequences and limits to the life of the career...all so they can continue to do what they love.
It’s time to ask WHY...it’s time for change…it’s finally time to start protecting our bodies…it is time to Dance Longer. Dance Stronger. Wear Apolla.
Enjoy a special treat featuring each of your favorite dancers from our dance film, “Dance Longer. Dance Stronger.”
