Beware the Jabberwock, my son

The Jabbawockeez is a hot and electrifying modern dance and hip-hop troupe, inspired by Lewis Carroll's "Jabberwocky."

Launched in 2003 in San Diego, California, the Jabbawockeez is one of the world's hottest and most electrifying modern dance and hip-hop troupes best known for their white masks, white gloves and baseball hats. It was the winner of the first season of "America's Best Dance Crew" in 2008.

The Jabbawockeez is heading to Shanghai tomorrow to start its China tour, "PRISM," with 10 performances featuring hip-hop, popping, breaking, locking, LA style and jazz.

State-of-the-art sound, light and stage design combine to create a visual extravaganza. Traditional Chinese elements such as martial arts and Taoism are also incorporated in the China shows.

Jabbawockeez is the brainchild of Phil "Swagger Boy" Tayag, Kevin "KB" Brewer and Joe "Punkee" Larot who wanted to showcase freestyle dance. The name was inspired by the fantastical monster from Lewis Carroll's nonsense poem "Jabberwocky."
