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 26, 2013, 2:00 pm at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square. The local group also performs at other fun events in the Seattle area for various organizations.

On Oct 26th, we will begin registration at 11:00 am under the Pergola at 1st & Yesler Way in Pioneer Square Park. A few volunteers have offered to assist in registering the dancers. Registration consists of signing a form that goes toward our worldwide count and also serves as a waiver.

At 1:30 we will begin our zombie walk to Occidental Park 1 block away. Following announcements we will join all Thriller groups in the world for the 10 second count down and worldwide simultaneous Thriller dance!  For your peace of mind, the park concierge who will be with us again on Thrill day will be contacting the park rangers to have extra security on board.

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 2013!
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.
