Dance Classes

No matter what your age or experience level, Jabberwocky’s dance classes will strengthen your body and mind, connect you to other people and make your day! Jabberwocky prides itself on being Columbia’s home for hip hop, but we offer a wide variety of classes to appeal to every taste.

  • We are excited to welcome a contemporary spin to African dance at Jabberwocky studios with the help of Mizzou’s very own Made In Africa dance team! In this year’s dance program, they’ll be teaching popular African dance moves that have taken over and introduce you to some new and fun music that’ll get you going! Not only will you be learning more about different African cultures through dance, you’ll also be having so much fun while breaking a sweat. Transportation may be available. Inquire at 573-239-9899
