The cute, loveable, and wildly hip gorilla is once again showing off his dance moves.

Now at the Dallas Zoo, Zola was originally from the Calgary Zoo. A video of him breakdancing when he was younger went viral and now the pop-and-lock gorilla is garnering some more attention for his love of dance and play.

Zola was caught by officials at the Dallas Zoo in May this year splashing around and dancing.

Gorillas at the Calgary and Dallas Zoo’s are involved in the Enrichment Program which provides them with mental and physical stimulation to increase natural behaviors.

“Enrichment can take many forms, but for this spunky great ape, it means playing and spinning in his favorite blue pool while off habitat!” read the caption from the Dallas Zoo’s YouTube video of Zola.

Time to follow Zola’s lead and get jiggy with it.
