Worldwide dance project sure to be a ‘Thriller’

Worldwide dance project sure to be a Thriller

“Thrill the World” is a project that was organized five years ago by Ines Markelle in Canada as a tribute to Michael Jackson, and as an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Largest Simultaneous Dance Routine, according to thrilltheworld.com. The objective is to gather a group of people dressed in zombie attire to dance to “Thriller” at the same time many other groups are doing the same thing worldwide.

Darla Robinson, the marketing and promotions manager of Hangman’s House of Horrors, jumped on the “Thrill the World” bandwagon last year by teaching and performing with a group of 16 dancers. Jackson’s untimely death earlier this year has made the group grow to an estimated 500 people.

When asked, “What’s the most amazing thing about teaching the dance?” Robinson answered, “The fact that I’ve got a 5-year-old dancing next to a 60-year-old!”
