Come Dance With Us! Thrill The World Portland – Saturday October 27th


Do you love Michael Jackson? What about Zombies? Is dressing up and being silly as fun for you as it is for me? You gotta join us dancing to Thriller!

Thrill The World is an annual worldwide attempt to break the Largest Simultaneous Dance with Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Thousands of people in cities around the world learn a version of MJ’s “Thriller” dance, and perform it together.

This year it happens on Saturday October 27th.


This is a day time, kid friendly (as long as your kid isn’t afraid of scary costumes and zombie makeup) community event, that raises money for local charities.

I plan on attending the first rehearsal on Friday September 28th. One of my ladies has suggested a zombie bridesmaid theme this year, so head to the Red Light, or raid your costume closet (I’m not the only one who has one of these, right), get your Zombie game face on, and join us!

Here are some photos of us at the 2017 event. For more of these (Zombie Lucy was my favorite) of these head to the THWP facebook page.

A note from Alan, the local organizer:

It’s time to launch Thriller season – our twelfth!

We will begin holding dance practices next week.

Here are the first few practices we’re holding:

All ages, all abilities are welcome to join. You can attend as many or as few practices as you like; or even none at all, if you’re learning the dance another way. We teach the dance in full at every practice; our instructors each bring different styles to teaching.

You can also practice at home. Instructional videos are on youtube:
