Join Wilton Library for its third annual Thrill the World simultaneous dance event in which we participate with countries around the world dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller. This fun, infectious dance/exercise/feel good event is for ages 10 to 110. The dance begins at 2 p.m. sharp on Saturday, October 27; final rehearsal begins at 1:30 p.m. Dancers are encouraged to come in full zombie/ghoulish makeup and costumes. Weather permitting, we will be dancing outside as the Wilton Chamber Halloween parade walks by, otherwise the event will take place in the Brubeck Room. There will be a reception with healthy snacks to follow the dance.
Each participant must attend at least one of four rehearsals before the world simultaneous dance event to get all the dance moves down. Dance scripts will be handed out and the dance will be broken down and taught in segments so that the 6-minute dance is learned by the end of each rehearsal.
Rehearsal dates are:
Join with friends. Registration is required. Please register for the October 27 date. $5 per participant registration fee offsets costs and will be collected at the first rehearsal attended. Please note that the time for this event is dictated by worldwide event organizers and the library’s East Coast time zone. Thrill the World is co-sponsored by Wilton Library and the Wilton Family Y.
Saturday, Oct. 27 Thrill the World—Simultaneous World Dance Event, 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. Dance is exactly at 2 p.m.
