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 through dance.
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 28, 2023.
The local group also performs for various organizations in and around Seattle throughout the year 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 September, 2023. 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 event.
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.
