Local zombies wanted for worldwide ‘Thriller’ dance

October 7, 2017 • By

Coming up in Santa Rosa the next three Sundays is a chance to learn to dance like someone not entirely dead and, perhaps, to set a world record.

Free workshops at the Dance Center are intended for anyone interested in taking part in a worldwide pre-Halloween performance of Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” video.

The idea is that on Oct. 28, enough people will dance the dance at the same time to make the record books.

This is not the first “Thrill the World” event, but it’s the first in Sonoma County. Last year, according to thrilltheworld.com, an estimated 4,535 temporary zombies did their thing at 96 registered events around the world. read more
