True/False Film Fest 2015
Inspired by the original go-go dancers of the 1960s, Hella Go-Go was founded in 2010 and began performing with local rockers The Wildcat Daddies at events throughout Missouri. Since our inception we have performed with a number of live bands including:
- Southern Culture on the Skids
- Los Lobos
- The Bel Airs
- Labretta Suede & The Motel 6
- Hillbilly Casino
- The Flood Brothers
- The Record Collector
- The Hot Knights.
Our repertoire includes a variety of choreographed routines which showcase our unique and expressive style. We have extensive knowledge of retro dance styles but we are certainly not limited to any one era! From rockabilly proms to jazz piano bars to modern night clubs, we've demonstrated our versatility and unfailing stamina at every opportunity.
Our influences include the likes of The Pontani Sisters, Candy Johnson, The Gazzarri Dancers, and Sandy Sarjeant. They all represent the incredible energy, spontaneity and classic style of 60s go-go dancing that we love best!

Cherry Bopper and Sparkarella of the @ction Party
"Inspired by the foliage-pixie theme, Maxwell and Boesch held the dance floor’s gaze as they jived and thrust to bumping beats by MNDR, DJ Rat and Underdog. The two are part of Hella Go-Go dancers that perform around Columbia, and it was their second year at the @ction party."
