Thrill the World Christchurch
Thrill the World Christchurch 2019
Sunday 27 October 9:30am - 11:30am
Thrill the World Christchurch is back! It's time to get your zombie freak on and start practising those Thriller moves so you can join this epic global synchronised dance event for zombies of all ages...
This year we'll be in The Commons as part of FoUND: Festival of the (Un)Dead's 'Halloween Family Fun Day' with heaps of activities for kids and grown up kids (like us), combined with a spooky-picnic-in-the-park vibe (right through to 3pm).
As usual, we'll kick off the day with registrations from 9:30am along with a workshop/rehearsal led by local dance legend - Carrie Martin of Latin Addiction and her team. Then we'll go straight into the official count for the World Record Attempt from 10:30am... and at 11am SHARP we'll join with thousands of other zombies around the world to have some of the most fun you can have in 6 and a half minutes, as we dance in unison to Michael Jackson's classic Thriller.
Why do we love Thrill the World so much? Anyone can do it! You don't need to be a flash dancer - they've made it super easy to learn by breaking it down into you-tube clips so you can learn it at home on your own, with your family or your mates...or even in your school or workplace!
We'll also be running a couple of FREE workshops in the lead up to the day as we have done in the past, so be sure to keep up-to-date on the Thrill the World Christchurch and FoUNDChch pages for more info about those as it all unfolds.
A gold coin donation (or more if you really love what we do!) at registration will go towards 'Dancing Like the Stars' a nine week dance programme in low-decile primary schools throughout Christchurch.
So what are you waiting for? Share this event with your mates so they can join you (and us) in this crazy bit of Halloween fun this Labour Weekend!
