Thrill The World is the annual worldwide simultaneous dance of Michael Jackson's Thriller for world record and charity.  December, 2014 marked the 31st anniversary of his Thriller video.

Each year in October the Seattle Thrillers join Thriller groups in other nations to perform at the same exact time.  The next Thrill The World performance will be Saturday, October 24, 2015, 3:00 pm precisely at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square.  This will be the 9th annual worldwide performance.

The local group also performs at other events in the Seattle area for various organizations.  If you live in the greater Seattle area and would like to learn the dance in a class setting, rehearsals will resume Sunday, August 23, 2015.  Check the calendar on this site for dates of all rehearsals, the Thrill The World event, and other fun performances.  It is free to learn the dance and there is no charge to the public on the day of the worldwide event.  We will accept donations to our charity at all rehearsals and we will ask for donations directly following our Thrill The World performance.  Rehearsals will be held at Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, 843 Hiawatha Pl S, Seattle, 98144.

This year the Seattle Thrillers will be donating to Sister Island Project for building the community of Cruz Verde of the Dominican Republic and supporting the Community Health Fund serving community members in the Yabacao region, 

Thrill The World was created by Ines Markeljevic and presented by proving to you that you CAN dance!

Sponsors: My World Dance & Fitness Studio - 849 Hiawatha Pl South, Seattle, WA, 206-861-2500, and Artspace Hiawatha Lofts - 843 Hiawatha Pl South, Seattle.
