Have you ever wanted to Learn Thriller? Dance in a Flashmob? Make a difference? Join us! The event will be from 1pm-5pm.
Michael Jackson's Thriller is a iconic. It is loved the world over. It is the greatest selling record of all time.
Dancing is healthy and a fun way to keep fit. No treadmills, no weights... Just music and movement. If you have never danced before, think of this as an exciting personal challenge. If you have always wanted to learn the Thriller routine, think of this as a dream come true.
As a world record philanthropist and ceaseless humanitarian, Michael gave over $300,000,000 to charity. Continue these honorable actions.
