Thrill the World is a worldwide flash mob that honors Michael Jackson and raises charitable funds. In this tribute, participants dressed as zombies perform the Thriller dance synchronized with other Thrill the World events. The Cal Lutheran dance party begins at noon and includes on-site instruction, zombie makeup, refreshments with a small donation, and fun for the kids! Those who officially register themselves as dancers will be counted in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest flash mob ever. Global performance of the dance is at 3 p.m.
Thrill the World Thousand Oaks 2017 is supported and hosted by the Theatre Arts Department. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted for World Dance for Humanity. This Santa Barbara-based organization supports community and small business development in Rwanda and sends disaster relief funds wherever the need arises.
