Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, Apostolia's degree in Physical Education stimulated her to further explore dance movement. After graduating from the Greek National School of Dance, she has studied new dance techniques in New York between 1993-95, with scholarships from the Onassis Foundation, the Goulandris Foundation and the Merce Cunningham Studio.
Between 1996-2001 she was the Artistic Director of Sinequanon Dance Co. and a pioneer for the development of contemporary dance in Greece. At that period she created several full-evening pieces for the company and presented them in Greece, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Cyprus, Finland, France: Transmutations, Jarden, Buster Keaton, Eros and Psyche, Temps Tendre, Tour de Force (honorary distinction at the Int'l Choreographic Competition of Seine - Saint- Denis '96).
In September 2002 she founded QUASI STELLAR aiming to research and develop more her artistic vision: to expand the horizons of the performance / dance genre and infusing alternative art forms.
The interaction with artists from other disciplines has brought forth further experimentation and development.
Since then Quasi Stellar has collaborated with acclaimed Greek and foreign artists of all disciplines and presented works in major festivals in Greece and around the world.
Apostolia, simultaneously developing her own work, has been also commissioned to create choreographic works for other dance groups at the Zodiak - Center for New Dance - Helsinki (Finland), National Theatre of Nothern Greece, M.T.D. Opera - Ankara (Turkey) and Brooklyn Academy of Music (USA) etc.
Her co-productions with other artists has been staged in various countries.
She collaborated as a performer and co- producer with director - visual artist Jan Fabre for the creations "Je Suis Sang - A Medieval Fairy Tale" (2001) staged at Saitama Arts Foundation (Tokyo, Japan) and Peak Performances at Montclair (New York, USA), "Histoires Des Larmes" (2005) commissioned by the Avignon Festival-Cour d'Honneur, touring Europe and Asia, as well as "Requiem for a Metamorphosis"(2007) at the Salzburger Festspiele (Salzburg, Austria).
