2009 Thrill The World event is set for October 25th, 2009 @ 12:30am GMT/UTC (which is October 24 is some parts of the world). This year’s Thrill The World aims to be an unprecedented global celebration of the life and music of Michael Jackson.
An estimated 400+ events in 42 countries are expected to dance with between 10,000-50,000 participants worldwide.
Now in its 3rd year, Thrill The World’s participant numbers have increased exponentially from the initial 62 dancers in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 2006, which resulted in a Guinness World Record, to 4,179 dancers in 10 countries in 2008. This incredible tribute to Michael Jackson was founded by Ines Markelle, a dance choreographer and instructor in Toronto, Canada. It is Markelle’s unprecedented Thriller dance instructional teaching videos that make it possible for non-dancers and dancers, young and young-at-heart, to learn the dance in a very short time. New Thriller dancers have then gone on to teach other event participants.
Sudbury, Ontario – On Saturday, October 24th Thrill The World Sudbury will be held @ 8:30pm at the Frood Hotel Parking Lot
