Irving Park
707 NE Fremont St, Portland

The funk of forty thousand years is in the air, and we zombies rise… to dance! Thrill the World Portland takes the stage for its twelfth annual Thriller dance, the local outpost of a simultaneous, worldwide Thriller.

Join us! We dance at three pm, Irving Park’s covered basketball court, close to 7th & NE Fremont. We ask that dancers arrive by 2:40 pm – we need to get you registered before you can take the court. Also – we’ll have a Bollywood Thriller performance before we dance Thriller, hosted and choreographed by our co-MC, DJ Prashant! Contessa de la Luna will be on hand to co-MC, as well.

We ask a five-dollar donation from all dancers. This helps keep our team motivated to come back year after year to bring you Thriller. Our proceeds this year go to KBOO Community Radio.

You can practice at home. Instructional videos are on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/INESSENS

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.
