The FUNK of FORTY THOUSAND YEARS!

Thrill The World is the annual worldwide simultaneous dance of Michael Jackson's Thriller for world record and charity.  November, 2013 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 performance will be Saturday, October 25th, 2014, 3:00 pm at our new performance location - Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Ave N, Seattle, 98109 (South Lake Union, Westlake).  The local group also performs at other fun 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 August 24, 2014.  It is free to learn the dance, however, we will accept donations to our charity at all rehearsals.  Rehearsals will be held at Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, 843 Hiawatha Pl S, Seattle, 98144.

This year all contributions will go to the Alzheimer's Association, www.alzwa.org.  Their vision:  A world without Alzheimer's disease.  Their mission:  To eliminate Alzheimer's disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.
