Hundreds of zombie-faced dancers will gather for a flash mob of the hit MTV video dance Thriller. This event is being held as part of the simultaneous global dance Thrill the World. Dancer registration and makeup begins at noon, with part one of the worldwide dance taking place at 3 p.m. on the back side of the Pier and the final dance at 7:30 p.m. In between there will be trivia, prizes and entertainment.
Zombie DancerThrill Day, the day the Thrill St. Pete zombie dancers do their thing, will be fun day and night of events for everyone. To participate as a dancer on Thrill Day make sure to sign-up and attend zombie dance workshops. We are still looking for volunteers to help immediately and on Thrill Day. Everyone is invited to come out and enjoy the day at The Pier where we'll have numerous events and happenings in addition to the wonderful offerings of the Pier itself.
Experiencing the event itself is "thrilling" for both dancers and on-lookers. It is, after all, an attempt to top a world record, dancing with a crowd of people, knowing that thousands of other people all over the world are dancing at the same time. With each refrain, and when Vincent Price starts his rap, the energy in the crowd is palpable. Of course, the audience hooting it up also helps the excitement and the fun. Best of all, it's a family friendly event that brings together all sorts of people. Differences fade away and we all just celebrate the love of music, dance and having fun!
Thrill St. Pete is the local incarnation of the global Thrill The World event. Thrill The World is an annual worldwide simultaneous dance of "Thriller" for world records, charity, and tribute to Michael Jackson.
