The funk of forty thousand years is washed off, and we zombies rise… to dance! Thrill the World Portland takes the stage for its tenth 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 2:45 pm – we need to get you registered before you can take the court.
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 the Sankofa Collective (formerly the Black chapter of Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays), and SMYRC, Portland’s Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center.
Practices are happening all month long! For more info, message us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to learn Thriller at home, look for instructional videos on youtube under username INESSENS.
Costumes optional, Thrillers. All ages and all abilities are welcome. The Irving Park location is ideal for photography and videography, as spectators can stand a couple of feet higher than the dancers.
Plus! Special guest performances! more information to come…
