Thrill The World is the annual worldwide simultaneous dance of Michael Jackson's Thriller for world record and charity. December, 2015 marked the 32nd 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 29, 2016, 3:00 pm at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square.
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 September 11, 2016 at the location of our sponsor, Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, 843 Hiawatha Place S in Seattle, 98144. All rehearsals for 2016 have been posted on our calendar.
It is free to learn the dance and there is no charge to the public on the day of the worldwide event, however, donations for charity will be accepted at all rehearsals and directly following the Thrill The World performance. This year the Seattle Thrillers will be raising money for Sleepless in Seattle. Founder Eddie Wang, a recent UW graduate, began a volunteer-led group based out of Seattle committed to caring, meeting, serving, and befriending those experiencing homelessness in King County with sleeping bags and a smile: http://sleeplessinseattle.org/, & on Facebook Sleepless in Seattle - Seattle Gives back, https://www.facebook.com/sleeplessinseattlegiving/info?tab=page_info.
