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 performance will take place Saturday, October 29, 2022, 3:00 pm at the Magnolia Community Center parking lot.

The local group also performs for various organizations in and around Seattle throughout the year for donations to their selected charity. This year the group is accepting contributions for World Central Kitchen, https://wck.org/ (#ChefsForUkraine).

If you live in the greater Seattle area and would like to learn the dance in a class setting, in-person rehearsals will resume September 10, 2022 at Magnolia Community Center in Seattle. It is free to learn the dance and there is no charge to the public on the day of the event. Thrill The World is not a flash mob as the media is contacted prior to the performance.

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

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

We are good to go with having rehearsals and event at Magnolia Community Center,[masked]th Ave W, Seattle. Rehearsals will take place in their gym beginning Saturday, Sept 10th, 1:30-3:30 and will go through October 22nd. It's a HUGE room! All will be on Saturdays, same time. More rehearsals will be posted soon.

The dance routine will be taught from the beginning at each rehearsal due to new members continuing to join. No previous dance experience is necessary. Wear comfortable clothes and bring water.

It is free to learn the dance and we will accept donations to our charity at all rehearsals. This year our charity is World Central Kitchen, wck.org (Chefs For Ukraine). Fresh hot meals are sent to Ukraine daily.

There is a parking lot at the entrance of the building, and there is also free street parking. When you walk in, let the assistant at the desk know you are there for the Thriller rehearsal & they can show you where the gym is. That parking lot is where we will perform on the 29th.

Seattle Thrillers T-shirts are available for $15 per shirt. I will bring them to all rehearsals.
