Thriller Dance Practice

Thursdays starting August 14 at the Downtown Athletic club

7-8pm New Thriller dancers (slow, step by step instruction)

8-9pm Faster paced review of the entire dance

7-8 pm new Thriller Dancers will be taught all the basics of the 6 minute version of Michael Jackson's Thriller. The dance will be broken down into sections. We teach Thriller using methods developed by the creator of "Thrill The World" Basically you will learn an action word for every sequence in the dance that helps you remember the steps. Sections are repeated so learning a few basic sections and putting them in order is the goal. Anyone is welcome that wants detailed review. New Thriller dancers are also welcome to join the 8-9 pm class when you feel ready and want to  review  the entire dance at a much faster pace.

8-9pm class is for people who danced it in 2012 and 2013 and the pace will be faster with the entire dance reviewed . This year we will try to put more creativity into the presentation of the whole routine.

The teachers are Margo Jennings, Sandy Caughron, Dan Stephens, Gwen Gibbons and John Gibbons.

No dance experience required. DAC membership not required. If you are not a DAC member, please come EARLY the first day as they will have you fill out a form or two for a temporary ID. Further registration for Thrill The World and Waiver forms will be explained in class.

The environment heats up quickly; this dance is a great workout. Wear comfortable  clothes and bring a water bottle if you like :)

      You can see on the Global Thrill the World web page IF they have registered. I don't recall hearing about a Corvallis group but may have missed

    is it possible to get the guest pass onWed? I'll be rushing over from work on Thursday.

    • Geneieve D.

      Yes Jennifer it is. All you need to do is stop by the DAC and tell them that you are apart of Thriller. If I recall it is two papers to sign, they take your picture and give you a card to show when you go in. Easy

      August 12, 2014

    • Sandy

      Yes, thanks for the reply Geneieve. You can now print it up yourself. On our Meetup page, look across the toolbar to 'MORE' and click on that, then click on 'FILES' and you will see the registration form to print at home.

    Will we also be having Sunday practices??

      Watch Meetup updates in your email! Remember you can also do some on line review. Sorry Thursday is a problem, you are not alone. Between our work schedules and DAC space availability, Thursday was the only choice.
