Saturday, October 24th:

We’re working on scheduling an early-afternoon practice at the place we’re dancing: SW Second Avenue downtown, from Burnside to the other side (south side) of the Ankeny Alley/entrance to Saturday Market. I’ll let you know how that shapes up. We’d love to have all of our dancers, checked in, and ready to dance by 2:45 pm – please plan for that! We hope to have zombie make-up folks on hand, too; will let you know. We dance at 3 pm…. in the streets!  More info to come as we tie up our T’s and I’s.

Thrill the World Portland is a fundraiser for SMYRC, Portland’s Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center. We request five dollars per dancer, collected at check-in on the 24th. More information on SMYRC at smyrc.org.

**More opportunities to dance Thriller in public will come – I’ll let you all know what they are, towards the end of the month…
Let me know if you have questions. Let’s make this the Thrilliest year ever.


Thrill the World Portland – Saturday, October 24, 2015, 3 pm, 2nd Avenue downtown Portland by the Ankeny Alley, just south of Burnside.
