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 Thrill The World performance will be Saturday, October 25, 2015, 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 August 24, 2015. 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 we will be donating equally to 1) 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, http://www.sisterislandproject.org/ and 2) Chelsee Martin and her family who have endured a series of tragedies and need assistance with medical bills, http://www.gofundme.com/chelsee-isafighter.
