Thriller’ Dance Raises Money for Rwanda

Annual Community Event Unites Zombies, Humanitarian Aid


This Saturday, October 26, World Dance Santa Barbara unites the zombified masses for Thrill the World, the annual dance event to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” On top of the dress-up-and-dance, World Dance S.B. is also using the event as a way to help raises funds for beneficiaries near and far. Folks interested in taking part in the dance can pop into one of the group’s many open classes this week. A $35 donation gets you the steps, and all the proceeds benefit the Santa Barbara and Santa Maria Boys & Girls Clubs and World Dance for Humanity’s Education Program in Rwanda. Thrill the World shakes down locally at 2 p.m. in the Santa Barbara Courthouse Sunken Gardens (1100 Anacapa St.). For more info, visit facebook.com/WorldDanceForHumanity.
