SOME teenagers organise a sleepover for their 14th birthday.

Others might go to the cinema.

But when you're arguably Australia's most famous teenaged girl, you can book a world-renowned group of dancers and invite everyone to your party.

That's exactly what Bindi Irwin plans to do later this month when American dance troupe Jabbawockeez takes to the stage of Australia Zoo's Crocoseum.

The hip-hop dance crew, which won the first season of America's Best Dance Crew, has been wowing audiences at Jupiters Casino on the Gold Coast.

Cast members take to the stage wearing their signature expressionless white masks and gloves.

If Bindi is excited by the idea of playing host to the dancers, Jabbawockeez member Phi Nguyen said the feeling was mutual.

"When we heard we were visiting the home of the legendary Steve Irwin we were really excited, so to be performing for Bindi and her fans as well is a real thrill for us," he said.

"We have danced on different stages around the world, but the Crocoseum will be something completely different and we can't wait to check it out."

Jabbawockeez will be the feature act on the day with thousands set to pack the grandstands of the iconic Crocoseum for an exclusive sneak peek of what MÜS.I.C has to offer.

Australia Zoo will roll out the pink carpet for Bindi's boot camp-themed birthday extravaganza on July 24, with children receiving free entry.
