We would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2015 Thrill Mill Creek event, and especially the good folks at Central Market in Mill Creek, who graciously allowed our 21 zombies to take over the bakery department!

We are also pleased to announce that the event raised $200 for Smile Train, an international charity that provides free cleft lip and palate surgeries to children around the world.

Thrill Mill Creek is sponsored by Applause Studio in Mill Creek, and is affiliated with Thrill the World - where thousands of people around the world dance the Thriller dance at exactly the same time! This was Applause Studio's ninth year of participation in this very cool event. If this sounds like a lot of fun to you - that's because it is! So here's what you need to know to be part of next year's event:

Participants in Thrill Mill Creek must be at least 10 years old (younger experienced dancers allowed only with special permission), and must attend at least two learning sessions. (If you participated with us this year, you only need to attend one learning session.) Participants under the age of 18 must have parent's permission and a signed underage waiver, which you will be able to pick up at your learning session. There is a $10 registration fee for participants, and learning sessions will cost $5 per person, per session. Learning sessions are held at Applause Studio in Mill Creek. Bookmark this page, and check back with us in early October, 2016, when we will be announcing the dates and times for the learning sessions.

In the meantime, You can get started learning the dance HERE.
