Welcome to the 8th annual Thrill the World Portland. We’re excited to be bringing Thriller back, with you…. shamon!

We’re getting this autumn’s practices underway on Friday, Sept 26th. We’ll spend the first couple of practices breaking down the dance so that folks become familiar with it, then in future weeks we’ll spend time making sure that everyone is comfortable performing the full dance.

We’ll have practices every Friday 6-8 and Sunday from 2-4 until the date of the dance – all practices are free to the public. We have three different instructors this year, so you’re able to experience a few different styles of learning the dance.

Folks are free to come to as many or as few practices as you wish; you can even learn it at home in full, with instructional videos online. Feel free to set up your own classes, if you like. Let us know if you have questions.

Practices are at 2620 NE Fremont, 97212, in Portland.

We dance on October 25th, at 3 pm, @ Irving Park, 7th & Fremont, NE Portland. We’re Portland largest, awesome-ist Thriller dance (and we hold the record for Portland’s largest synchronized dance event!). As always, we are honored to serve as a fundraiser for Portland’s SMYRC (smyrc.org).

Invite your friends (and even your frenemies) – there’s no limit on the number of people who can participate. Folks of all ages and all abilities are welcome to dance with us. There will also be other opportunities to dance Thriller at some public events; we’ll let you know what they are as the events approach.

Email us if you have questions – [email protected]gmail.com – or to sign up for enews about practices and the event – or find us on facebook, at facebook/thrilltheworld.portland

Thrill The World FAQ

How do we do it?
Every October, Zombies across the world synchronize to dance to “Thriller” at exactly the same time. Preparation for the dance is part of the fun but the feeling of being connected to people thinking and doing the same thing at the same time, celebrating a true inspirational genius of Michael Jackson, is what keeps people coming back year after year. Also, knowing what bad dancers Zombies are, it helps people indulge, renew or even discover the joy of dance, without having any fear (what do I look like? Am I any good? ) Zombies don’t do fear!!!

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.
