THRILL THE WORLD SURRey
Thrill the World brings together 'zombies' of all ages and dance levels together to re-enact the Michael Jackson THRILLER dance in simultaneous real time together around the world. The event originally launched in 2006 with 62 zombies at "Thrill Toronto" and fueled epic worldwide excitement which grows in quantum leaps every year. Last year over 6400 zombies in 22 countries around the world took part, breaking yet another world record. And now, Thrill the World Surrey is here, beginning Oct. 29th, 2016.
Thrill The World is a world wide event that takes place every October. It is a simultaneous Thriller dance that, aims to break the world record for the amount of people to dance to Thriller at the same time. However, Thrill The World is not just about a 6 minute dance to Thriller. It is also about bringing people in communities together, as well as humanitarianism.
And it is a whole lot of family friendly fun.
