THRILL THE WORLD! Michael Jackson dance parties, dance workshops, and World Record breaking attempts

We've got all sorts of Michael Jackson news to share with you today! As we're moving closer and closer to this Saturday's attempt to break the Guinness World Record for having the most people dance the Thriller at the same time, we're gearing up with more dance workshops, parties, and special fun all around.

First of all, there's the almost sold out Michael Jackson Sing-Along at the Ritz this Thursday night. This is currently scheduled to be the last MJ Sing-Along until next year, so if you want in on that, grab your tickets two minutes ago!

Even if you can't get into that show, though, you're still welcome to swing by the official after party, happening just down the street at the swank lounge over that corner that used to be Emo's Lounge but is set to be a new Mexican restaurant or something. We'll have a one hour Thriller dance lesson teaser session at that party, then turn the show over to Car Stereo (Wars), who'll be debuting a brand new Thriller Remix that'll have you doing freestyle dance until you pass out. That party gets started at around 11pm, and the dance lesson will go down at midnightish. One note - the after party is 21 and up only...

Then on Friday night, we've got our last serious dance workshops before the big day on Saturday. Starting at 6pm at the Off Center (2211 Hidalgo St), we'll have the previously scheduled Thrill the World dance lesson.

But because the lesson at the Off Center on Tuesday night got a bit cramped, we're throwing a second dance lesson on Friday night at the parking lot of our very own Alamo South Lamar. We're gonna have a Rolling Roadshow rig set up out there so we use Ines' brilliant dance lessons on DVD, with live help from some of us from Thrill the World Austin. Assemble at 7:30 PM at South Lamar, Dance Lessons begin at 8:00 PM.
