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 :)

    Very fun practice! Hey, I think it was easier for me to learn the moves WITHOUT the music. Over and over without the music may help me learn it faster. (I have the music in my head...) Thanks again for practicing together.

    Yes, changing it up is tons of fun and helps pull the moves together for me. Love doing this. Thank you!

    I love the challenge dances - other music, silent treatment. Thanks to all involved.
