Terry Chasteen teaching Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' on July 19, 2007 to Fox 5 News reporter Sarah Simmons using the CD version of 'Thriller' and including many of the moves that Michael danced around Ola Ray down the graveyard path. Unlike the DVD version of 'Thriller' , this is the music that all of the clubs will play night after night after night during the week of Halloween. Also included is some sign language for the benefit of the kids who Terry teaches this routine to often plus a lesson in the "Moonwalk". Parts of this taping wound up on Fox 5 News during 3 or 4 segments on July 19th and 20th. Sarah did a GREAT job in so little time, considering that it took Terry and dancer friend Alex 2 to 3 months to perfect the complete choreography from the DVD. By the way, this is only about 1/3 of the full routine.

Purchase your own copy at Sony online and watch the complete performance of this incredible
and very much ahead-of-it's time #1 album,
