Dig out your red leather and your sequined gloves…er, glove, people! For the first time ever, the Step It Up & Dance crew will be performing live, and it’s a Thriller!
On April 24th, the entire cast of Step It Up & Dance will perform together at the Tribeca Film Festival Drive-In to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. In addition to the dance, filmmaker and Thriller video director John Landis will screen the Thriller video, as well as The Making of Thriller documentary.
Jackson’s longtime choreographer, Vincent Paterson will be on hand to teach the audience a few of Michael’s renowned Thriller moves (Um…some of us are old enough to have memorized the video back in 1984, but…). The audience will also take part in “The Zombie Disco,” a Michael Jackson dance-off, and Thriller face painting.
The Step It Up & Dance live Thriller event will take place at the Tribeca Film Festival Drive-In at the World Financial Center Plaza on Thursday, April 24, 2008. The event is free to the public. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
