On Saturday, Oct. 28th at 3:00pm, hundreds of World Dance Zombies will rise from the lawn of Santa Barbara’s stunning Courthouse Sunken Gardens to perform a simplified version of Michael Jackson’s iconic dance. We’ll be dancing simultaneously with groups all over the world as part of a global event,
Thrill the World. This will be the 7th year World Dance for Humanity is hosting the experience, which will include flashmobs all over town leading up to Halloween.
On Sunday, Oct. 29th, we’ll take Thriller to Santa Ynez Valley, with flashmobs in the town squares and wineries, culminating in a Michael Jackson tribute at the gates of Neverland and a funk soul dance party at Cold Spring Tavern. For the first time, we’ll also be teaching and performing Thriller and doing flashmobs in Carpinteria in partnership with the Carpinteria Art Center.
No dance experience needed – all ages and abilities are welcome!
Individuals, schools, dance studios, and community groups are all invited to join us.
