'Thrill the World' coming to Redmond Town Center on Oct. 26
For the past four years, every October, zombies of all ages have gathered at Redmond Town Center, laid down in the streets "playing dead," then slowly gotten up (to the beat of Michael Jackson's "Thriller"), and began a worldwide flash mob dance simulcast with other "Thrill the World" locations such as London, Sydney, Tokyo, Helsinki, New York and Brazil.
The event this year will be at 2 p.m. on Oct. 26.
Classes to learn the "Thriller" dance begin Saturday at the Redmond Senior Center at 8703 160th Ave. N.E. There is a fee to learn this dance — with a portion of the proceeds going toward SecondStory Repertory, a nonprofit theater in the town center. Two-hour dance workshops (for ages 8 to 80) are $5. It takes at least two classes to learn how to dance like a zombie. To reserve a spot in the workshops, call (425) 556-2314.
Zombie dance instructor Teresa Osborn and the rest of the world will be dancing for world records and charity.
