Thrill The World is the annual global attempt to break the world record for the Largest Simultaneous Thriller Dance while raising money for charity. November, 2012 marked the 30th anniversary of Michael Jackson's 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 26, 2013, 2:00 pm at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. 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 25, 2013 at the location of our sponsor, Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, http://www.artspace.org/our-places/artspace.... Our rehearsals and participation in the event are free, however, we will be raising money for charity. Donations will be accepted at all rehearsals.
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.
