Since 2010, World Dance for Humanity has organized the big Thriller event at the Courthouse Sunken Gardens as part of “Thrill the World,” celebrated all over the world on the Saturday before Halloween. In 2020 we held the event on Zoom due to COVID, but we’re back at the Sunken Gardens this year! Join us for this spooktacular community celebration on October 30th with flashmobs all over town leading up to Halloween!
Learn Thriller and our other Halloween dances in-person and on Zoom!
Everyone is welcome – all ages and abilities, kids, grandparents, and everyone in between!
Note: To keep this event as safe as possible, we ask that all participants ages 12 and older are vaccinated for COVID-19. We also encourage you to practice social distancing and incorporate a MASK into your Thriller costume – it will add to the spookiness and fun!
