On October 29th, 2011 at 7:00 pm PST, thousands of people around the world will dance Michael Jackson's Thriller together for Thrill The World (TTW). Many of these people will have never danced before, but with TTW's easy choreography, they'll be talented zombie dancers after only a few hours' practice.
Thrill Toronto was conceived in 2006 and Thrill The World was born in 2007. Vancouver's first TTW was organized by Ceroc SFU in 2008, and saw 69 zombies dancing at Kits Beach. One year later, Vancouver's 2009 event had a whopping 242 dancers and in 2010, the event saw 286 dancers take part!
OK, but why?
Because it's SO. MUCH. FUN! Well, that and other reasons. Thrill The World was born out of an idea to unite the world in dance. TTW's choreography is easy enough to learn that people who have never danced before have the opportunity to feel the joy of dancing. Furthermore, each event is encouraged to contribute to a local charity as an expression of goodwill towards those in need.
(Note: Thrill The World 2011 will have two 'Thrill Times' to accommodate dancers on different sides of the world. In Vancouver, the dance will happen at 7:00 pm on October 29th.)
