Please note: The dance lesson on 10/26 is an advanced lesson that serves as a refresher course for prior dancers.  We will just be running the dance as many times as we can within that hour.

Participants can also learn the dance at home via the step-by-step Thrill the World Tutorials on YouTube! (  There are in-depth breakdowns of each section of choreography available so that anyone can learn the dance at any time, ANYWHERE - even at home.  We will have a few opportunities to rehearse the dance before the official record-breaking attempt.  Remember - Thrill the World is open to dancers of all skill levels.  The most important thing is to HAVE FUN!

Day of the Event:

The event will be held OUTSIDE of the Scranton Cultural Center, located at 420 N. Washington Avenue in Scranton, PA.  We will convene beginning at 5:00 PM.  On the day of the event, participants are encouraged to come in their best zombie or Halloween inspired look, but it's not required.  You'll check in with the SCC team (for reporting purposes) and we'll have a few opportunities to practice the dance before the official world record attempt.  The dance will be live-streamed on the Scranton Cultural Center Facebook page, so please encourage family and friends to cheer you on from home.

Have a question?  Email us at and we will be happy to answer it for you!
