Dance group names
Choosing a name for your dance group will help establish your identity. It should embody what you are about and help people understand you before watching you dance. As most dance groups compete in competitions, you’ll want to project a sense of superiority to establish that you’re the best.
Stage names for dancers

Most individual dancers tend to use their own names but there is nothing wrong with adding a bit of artistic flair, especially if your a break or street dancer. It could be a good idea to look at examples from recording artists that dance. This would be really useful if you’re a performer who sings and dances.
Dance studio names
Choosing the name for a dance studio is just as challenging as choosing one for a group. It could be better to get your group name down first and then have your studio name as a spin-off. Alternatively, you could create your studio name first and then create multiple dance group names inspired by your studio.
Choosing a name
Take your time and get lots of ideas down. Look at other groups and studio for inspiration but don’t be too derivative. You could try using a name generator but don’t expect to get the best results. You should choose a name that is personal to you but helps you stand out amongst all the other groups and studios. Remember that you’re competing and you want to be the best.

Their unusual name is a take on the word Jabberwocky. This is the title of a famous nonsense poem from Lewis Carrol, the writer of Alice in Wonderland. It essentially describes a crazy monster, which is appropriate for the group’s surreal visual look.
Another dance group that didn’t go all the way was DM Nation. Their name stands for District Mao, the dance studio that they practice in. Combining this with nation shows their united front and togetherness as a large dance crew. Although they didn’t have the same kind of success as JabbawockeeZ, they’re still competing in global competitions.
