The annual Thrill The World Thriller dance recreation by local zombies is taking play October 23rd. The Vancouver event (that is timed to coincide with other dances around the world) will take place at 4:00pm that day. Vancouverites can practice their Thriller moves this Saturday, October 2nd at the Roundhouse.
Other rehearsal dates are October 9th at Sunset Community Centre, October 14th at Cambrian Hall, and at 1:30pm on the day of Thrill the World, October 23rd. Last year there were over 240 participants at the Roundhouse so it would be helpful to know your moves and secure your spot.
Thrill the World is not only a world record-setting event; it’s a tribute to Michael Jackson and a fundraiser so donations will be accepted on the 23rd. Last year they raised $4,500 for the Greater Vancouver FoodBank through the dance.
