What we're about

The FUNK of FORTY THOUSAND YEARS! Thrill The World is the annual worldwide simultaneous dance to Michael Jackson's "Thriller." December, 2021 marked the 38th anniversary of his Thriller video.

This event is a global community project that inspires others to break down barriers by connecting people of all religions, races, political persuasions, and economic backgrounds.

Each year in October the Seattle Thrillers join Thriller groups in other nations to perform at the same time. The next Thrill The World event will take place Saturday, October 29, 2022.

The local group also performs for various organizations in and around Seattle for donations to their selected charity. If you live in the greater Seattle area and would like to learn the dance in a class setting, in-person rehearsals will resume the weekend after Labor Day, 2022. It is free to learn the dance. Thrill The World is not a flash mob as the media is contacted prior to the performance.

Sponsors: Friends of Normandy Park Foundation, Zombie Fest Northwest, Normandy Park City Hall, 4Culture, My World Dance & Fitness, Healthitude Fitness & Nutritional Coaching, Napolitano Skin & Body Studio.

T-Shirts: Seattle Thrillers T-shirts will be available at rehearsals and at the event for $15 per shirt.

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