Boy Scout Tailgate Day!
Thrilling the Crowd at the Duck Game!
Welcome to Thrill The World Eugene!
THRILL THE WORLD is an annual global attempt to break the world record for the Largest Simultaneous Thriller Dance while raising money for charity. In 2006, “Thrill The World” was created by dancer Ines Markeljevic. In 2012, Eugene joined “Thrill The World” for the first time. We did several flash mobs and gathered for Thriller performances at special occasions. Dance and performance skills were learned, new friendships developed, and many “bucket lists” were checked off.
Our debut in 2012 had 113 dancers. We doubled that in 2013 with 213 dancers and were #3 in the world with local attendance. In 2014, 203 dancers joined in on the fun. In 2015, we had 189 dancers and were #2 in the world with local attendance. We celebrated our 5th anniversary in 2016 with 282 dancers! In 2017 we had 224 dancers. In 2018 we had 258 dancers. In 2019 we had 166 dancers. In 2020, the COVID pandemic impacted our annual dance; a total of 76 dancers divided into 6 small groups to perform simultaneously throughout Eugene/Springfield area.
We welcome all ages and abilities. No dance experience is required — only a willingness to practice and have fun. In addition to our International dance event, you can look forward to optional flash mobs, developing friendships, and being part of the Thriller Community.
