The Achterhoek Dances is a medley of five traditional folk dances that are performed by bandoneon player Jan Rap (not to be confused with Artichoke Dances). It is used mainly in the Krusty Krab or Mrs. Puff's Boating School. It is also used mainly for the characters Mr. Krabs, Patchy the Pirate, and Mrs. Puff.
