‘Thriller’ dance workshops in session

Teresa Osborne’s Thriller workshops begin in preparation for Thrill of the World

Every year, in more than 150 cities throughout 30 countries, people dress as zombies and dance to Michael Jackson’s, “Thriller” to raise money for charity.

The Redmond Zombies have started their “Thriller” dance workshops in preparation for the big event, Thrill of the World happening Oct. 27.

The dance workshops are lead by zombie dance instructors Teresa Osborn and Brenda Frost. The five-part series workshops will take place from 1-2:30 p.m. every Saturday leading up to the event. People of all ages are welcome to participate.

Frost has helped with the event for the last nine years. She participated with her daughter one year and has been engaged in it ever since.

“The Redmond Zombies is the largest group in the world that dances together and we also raise the most money for charity,” Frost said.

The Redmond group is the only group in the world that hosts a whole day event. They have also been the largest event for the last seven years.

“My favorite part is that we see people coming back year after year,” Osborne said. “I love the lead up to it. It’s amazing to see all the different costume ideas that zombies come up with. The day is just phenomenal. Everyone has a fun time. It’s a great time to raise money for charity, Team Survivor Northwest. It’s a lovely community event.”

The workshops will be held at the Redmond Senior Center. To register, call 425-556-2314. Individuals who are interested in the workshops can also pay $7 at the door.
