What The world’s largest simultaneous Thriller tribute dance. Once again donations are being accepted for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. A minimum donation of $10 is suggested.
No dance experience is necessary but you can pick up the Thriller moves at one of the rehearsal sessions happening October 24th or 25th at the Roundhouse, or October 27th at Cambrian Hall. You can also get your ghoulish makeup done on-site at Thrill The World courtesy of Vancouver Film School’s Makeup Design for Film & Television students. A 2-item donation for the Food Bank is suggested for makeup service.
I have been a costume contest judge for the last two years and am happy to return again. I don’t know what the categories will be this year but in the past I’ve judged “Hungriest Looking” and “Most Enthusiastic Dancer” alongside CBC Radio 3’s Lana Gay. Spectators are very welcome to come out and enjoy the show as Vancouver zombies support a worthy local cause.
