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 performance will be Saturday, October 25th, 2014, 3:00 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 24, 2014.  It is free to learn the dance, however, we will accept donations to our charity at all rehearsals.  Rehearsals will be held at Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, 843 Hiawatha Pl S, Seattle, 98144.

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.

WHAT IS THRILL THE WORLD?
Thrill The World is friends, families and other local residents who each year join together with thousands of other people around the globe to break the World Record for the Largest Simultaneous Dance to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”! More importantly, TTW is more than just dancing to a 6 minute song– The broader goal is unity among all the peoples of the world, humanitarianism and environmental stewardship.

WELCOME TO THRILL THE WORLD 2014!
The event was founded in 2006 in Toronto, and has now spread to six continents! Every October thousands of people/zombies around the world come together to honor the genius of Michael Jackson and raise funds for charity–oh! and to have fun, too!

How It Works
People in cities around the world dance to “Thriller” at exactly the same time. Preparation and counting down worldwide is part of the fun but the feeling of being connected to others and dancing together as one is a Trill like no other! Celebrating the truly inspirational genius of Michael Jackson in a living and moving way — is what keeps people coming back year after year.

Participants
This dance is for EVERYBODY – all nationalities, faiths, creeds and abilities. Whether you are young or old, a professional dancer, or a complete beginner. You can adjust the routine to your own level — work up a major sweat or just take it easy. Dancing is a great way to achieve all round fitness and wellbeing, physically and mentally. Taking part is all about achieving your best – as Michael continues to inspire the world to do.
