Performed in over 150 cities throughout 30 countries, Thrill The World (TTW) is an annual worldwide simultaneous dance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” for world records and charity. Seattle and Redmond Thrillers join Thriller groups in other nations to perform at the same exact time each year.
All official Thrill the World events are included in the numbers for setting and breaking World Records. Each dance group also donates money to a charity of their choice.
What is Thrill The World?
TTW is more than just dancing to a 6-minute song. This global community project hopes to inspire people to break down barriers, connect with others of all religions, races, political, and economic persuasions, contribute to helping humanity, promote environmental stewardship, and encourage people to step up as leaders, visionaries, and creators.
Watch the dance, or get in on the action. Be part of the largest, most successful, most fun, and most undead THRILL THE WORLD event on the planet right here in Washington, hosted by the local groups who perform for TTW.
