The theme of the show is ‘Around the World’. Student dance associations Arabesque, Break-Even, Chassé, 4 Happy Feet and the relatively new association Primo Ballerino will each show a few dances to the audience.

‘One of the main goals of Apollo is to increase the bond between cultural associations and to build a community within the cultural sector,’ says Emma Donkers, who dances at 4 Happy Feet and is part of the organising committee. ‘It’s not the first time this event takes place, so we know it’s a great chance for dancers to meet one another, especially because they all come from different styles. It’s nice to see each other’s choreographies. And in the end, there’s even a combined dance with everyone.’
