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.

    Twelve makeup artists from Vancouver Film School will be joining the event and doing all makeup free of charge. Please bring a donation for the food bank!

    Hi. My daughter and I want to participate in the Thrill the World dance this year; do we have to sign up ahead of time? We watched it at the Roundhouse last year and really enjoyed it! Hopefully we’ll figure out the moves by next weekend. Please let me know about the sign up.

    Thank you

    Yes, I already had that information in the post (along with the suggested donation of 2 items). I also already linked VFS 🙂


    You can attend any of the rehearsal events that I have listed or you can show up on the day. It’s recommended you try to make a rehearsal if you can but they usually run through the moves several times before the event officially begins. I’ll see you there!
