Michael Jackson in ThrillerMichael Jackson dancing 'Thriller'Michael Jackson dancing 'Thriller'
It was exactly one year ago today, June 26th, 2010 when I picked up a voice message from reporter Lindsey Mastis of
WUSA TV 9. She had been on this MichaelJacksonsThriller.com web site and wanted to know if I could get some of
my 'Michael Jackson's Thriller' aficionados together to perform the iconic dance routine for a special news
report on Michael's death. A cold chill went through my entire body as I couldn't believe what I was
hearing...but to my horror and to the horror of so many of us it was true. The much too premature
loss of this icon of music and dance would soon send waves of shock around the world.

MJ's Thriller rehearsal with Terry Chasteen Take #2
(Oct 24, 2012)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oopeLga9PKI

FOR AN OCTOBER 27 IN-COSTUME ZOMBIE PERFORMANCE!!
(DETAILS BELOW)

PLEASE NOTE: SOME ZOMBIE STATIONS WILL BE OUTSIDE, SO HAVE ENOUGH LAYERS IN YOUR ZOMBIE COSTUME TO STAY WARM. BRING INSULATED LONG UNDERWEAR JUST IN CASE. THERE WILL BE VALET PARKING ON SITE AND THERE WILL BE A GREEN ROOM TO CHANGE INTO COSTUMES. ALSO 'PLENTY' OF FREE PARKING IN FRONT THE SURROUNDING EMBASSIES DURING REHEARSALS AT 'DANCESPORT DUPONT CIRCLE'..

To be considered for this event EVERYONE MUST ATTEND REHEARSAL AT LEAST ONCE THIS WEEK OF OCT 21, and TWICE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE (Sun@6pm, Wed@6pm, 6:45pm and 9pm, Thurs@8:15pm and Fri ONLY IF ENOUGH RSVP 24 HRS IN ADVANCE at 8pm).

Performers will be selected for pay during shifts from 5-9pm or 9pm-1am, but if you cannot attend this event, NO PROBLEMO! Your time and efforts are not wasted. Now that we have a core group of dancers, more MJ FlashMobs will be forthcoming, including excerps from 'Beat It', 'Bad', 'Billie Jean' and eventually 'Smooth Criminal'.

Dancing in one of the 2 performances at 8pm and 10pm is mandatory for payment. Even if you already know Michael Jackson's choreography, we'll be doing an earlier line dance, not on the DVD, of Michael's moves around Ola Ray down the pathway to the graveyard. This is danced to the prelude of the cd before the long routine. The long routine will be danced to the Vincent Price rap.

If not already dancing the complete 'Thriller' routine at full speed and in it's entirety from beginning to end, you CANNOT learn this in one or two sessions, especially since in one segment alternating lines go in opposite directions; a challenge for even seasoned performers.

Training: $5/person or free with any earlier or later class taken on that day. Those performing on Oct 27 will be paid (you need not perform on Oct 27 to attend and learn this routine. We definitely WILL be planning other MJ FlashMobs for you to participate in so come now and get the training behind you):

Sun - 6:00pm

Wed - 6pm, 6:45pm & 9pm

Thurs - 8:15pm

Fri (only if enough RSVP 24 hrs in advance to cover most of the studio cost) - 8pm-9:15 (though I can be available before and after as needed from 7:00 on).

Required time on set at the venue:
at least 1/2 hour before scheduled time for orientation (4:30 first shift and 8:30 second shift).

We 'WILL' have a green room for changing into costumes so no need to wear them to the venue.

Also those with costumes of 'Elvira' Photo of Elvira, queen of the Dark, Margaret Hamilton Margaret Hamilton as the Wicked Witch of the West in 'OZ' or Glinda the Good Witch Glinda the Good Witch (Wizard Of Oz), Herman Herman Munster_ThumbHerman Munster,
Lilly Lilly Munster holding up gown or Gomez Adams Gomez Adams of The Adams Family of The Adams Family or Count Dracula Clip Art Count Dracula.
.Count DraculaCount Dracula of Sesame Street


To prepare for Halloween, we will be teaching the complete and authentic 'Michael Jackson's
Thriller' dance routine on Sun's, Wed's and Thurs's thru Oct 25 for an Oct 27th in-costume performance. Learn the dance now for fun and try out for the event...

... (but ONLY for those who DARE ...)
Isn't it time to STOP WATCHING all the fun....
... and START HAVING IT?!!

WANTED! (PREFERABLY ALIVE): 'THRILLER' DANCING ZOMBIES FOR AN OCT 27TH IN-COSTUME PERFORMANCE

'DanceSport at Dupont Circle'

Sundays: 3pm-11pm ... Salsa on both 1 & 2, Bachata, Kizomba, Ballroom, Swing of all styles, International Latin, Brazilian Samba, C/W, 'Dance-at-Your-Wedding Workshops' and Argentine Tango and Milonga classes plus the 'Domingo en Dupont MILONGA'

includes beg & int classes PLUS social dancing, refreshments & desserts from the oven (with Ice cream!).

WANTED! (PREFERABLY ALIVE): 'THRILLER' DANCING ZOMBIES FOR AN OCT 27 PERFORMANCE!!)


30 dancing characters needed for Oct 27 to dance the authentic 'Michael Jackson's Thriller'. If you don't already know it, you would need to come to 'Thriller' classes at DanceSport DuPont Circle between now and then to learn the routine for a 'Michael Jackson's Thriller' FlashMob (not the 'Thrill The World' version but the original ...there only is and always will be only one).


Everyone must be available for and perform two FlashMobs at 8pm and 10pm (or for some who want to stay, to 1:00am) and lurch around the Haunted House scaring the Haiti out of innocent little children and their parents (FUN, NO?) for the two hours in between. The required time ends at 10 pm so here's still plenty of time for you to go elsewhere afterwards for Halloween.

Those who can come earlier and/or stay longer, however on Oct 27 (I need 10 before from 5pm and about 10 from 10pm to about midnight) and/or provide a much more elaborate costume like an Elvira or Lily & Herman Munster, Margaret Hamilton or members of the Adams Family or even some horrible creature; they would be given special consideration.

The Caveat is that everyone needs to be in the 'Michael Jackson's Thriller' FlashMobs at 8pm and 10pm so would have to come to 'THRILLER' class to learn the choreography. But then who has not wanted to do just that; paid gig or no paid gig, learn this iconic dance routine since the first time they ever saw it? And HERE is actually a chance to do it for 'PAY'!


Let me know ASAP if interested and any questions, I need a number by Sunday. Invite any other dancing friends to either perform or to just take the class for fun. 

Thanks, and if I don't see you, have a Happy Halloween!

Learn the authentic 'Michael Jackson's Thriller'
by request 'year round!' at our weekly Wed and Sun
Dance-&-Learn social parties that take place during
'DanceSport at Dupont Circle',
2201 P St. NW,
Washington DC 20037

Click here for Dance-&-Learn Party details

And it's FREE for the asking! We just want to get more people dancing the original [and authentic] routine by the next Halloween. This is not some variation just to fit the club cd which is the early segment of the video as Michael and Ola Ray dance down the pathway to the graveyard and would never work for the main performance without destroying the character of the dance. The full routine is actually danced during the Vincent Price rap and takes weeks to learn in it's entirety (which is why one needs to come several weeks in a row to actually perfect the hard core material).

All are welcome, including singles, couples, same-gender couples and the seeing and hearing impaired.

to so many of you who took the time to commemorate Michael's passing by coming in to learn the authentic

learn how to dance like him, though none of us will ever even come close. This is not the end,
however .... we'll be doing this most Wednesdays and on
Sundays during the Hip Hop class at DanceSport Dupont as part of a MJ/Equality FlashMob class

Terry Chasteen teaching and dancing "Michael Jackson's Thriller" and the Moonwalks (photos below) to Fox 5 News reporter Sarah Simmons on July 19, 2007 using the CD version of 'Thriller' and turning many of the moves that Michael danced around Ola Ray down the graveyard path into a line dance. Unlike the DVD version of 'Thriller', this is the CD version of the music that all of the clubs will play night after night during the month of Halloween. Also included is some sign language for the benefit of the kids who Terry teaches this routine to, plus a lesson for Sarah Simmons 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 accomplished 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 and only includes the original choreography of the first & second choruses. The main routine is MUCH longer and more complicated as can be seen in the other YouTube videos. When playing the cd version of the music, the rest of the routine can be danced during the Vincent Price rap after slinking around and hanging out for four phrases of music from where this segment ends.

Sarah Simmons's Dance Lessons
While searching for the King of Pop in DC Thursday, Fox 5's Sarah Simmons took some lessons to
learn the Thriller dance and the Moonwalk. Watch the extended highlights right here on www.myfoxdc.com.

*****************************

When Michael Jackon's "Thriller" album came out in December of 1982, some people thought it to be at the very least entertaining while others loved it from the first time they heard it. There were those who immediately developed a passion for this incredible first-of-it's-kind and years-ahead-of-it's-time dance and musical phenomenon.....and then there were those of us who were then and always will be nothing less than "OBSESSED!" ......
It was December, 1982 when I walked into a video dance club in Columbus, Ohio and was instantly overwhelmed by a penetrating laughter that pierced every corner of the darkness. The evil sound seemed to permeate from all directions at once and I was initially horror-struck as to what this blood-curdling outburst might be. It took another two days before I finally realized from where the frightening sound had come as I once again heard it as a tag at the end of a larger-than-life video performance on the floor-to-ceiling screen of the same disco. This time, however, the eery and frightening laughter took second place to what I had just experienced on the huge screen. That experience was the incredibly entertaining and mesmerizing choreography of Michael Jackson's soon-to-be #1 hit, "Thriller". The LP, from which the single came, became legendary and spawned a record 7 Top 10 hits, including the #1 hits "Billie Jean," "Beat It," and "Thriller", itself. The awards for the "Thriller" LP continued with 8 American Music Awards, including a Special Award of Merit. It also became and still remains the highest selling LP' of all times in the world of pop music.
From that day in 1982 on, I've been fascinated by the dance routine that Michael and his ghoulish, Zombie characters performed on the video of this top selling album. A performance that we always seem to see and hear without fail every Halloween when all of the scary ghosts and goblins on earth make their annual appearances out of their crypts and graves and into the streets of the Halloween weekend.
Since then many things have changed as the original VHS video has actually come out as part of the "Michael Jackson Video Greatest Hits - History" DVD. It was the very first DVD that I bought after purchasing my first DVD player, plunging me head first into the process of analyzing and memorizing the choreography that I have craved to learn from that very first day that I saw it over 20 years earlier at that time... My intent was not to create a "For-White-Guys-Who-Can't-Really-Dance" watered down version (and I'm white, so I can talk about non-dancing white guys), but instead to capture every detail and complicated syncopation in the routine, of which there are many. A monumental task, to be sure.
Though quick and incredibly unique, and just as funny and entertaining in staying with the ghoulish, zombie theme of the song, the "Thriller" choreography isn't really unattainable by most people willing to work at it and willing to make half an effort to practice. Especially by learning smaller segments at a time. Admittedly it does take a little concentration and some PMA (positive mental attitude) to accomplish something of this level, but I'm convinced that anyone willing to put his or her mind to it can ultimately come close to perfecting most of this unparalleled dance routine. And in the process introduce themselves to some groundbreaking choreography that was literally decades ahead of it's time when it was first performed in the fall of 1982. (Of course that entails getting the "I can't" mind-set out of the system. A mind-set that I regretably witness far too often in far too many able-bodied individuals. Let's compare to one of my favorite people of all times, Christopher Reeve. Who as a quadriplegic, accomplished much more than many of us will ever come close to and while having a fraction of our natural abilities and never telling himself or everyone else what he "can't" do. We can all learn from such a mind-set. OK, I'll get down off of my soap box...).
Now that I've analyzed and perfected the makings of this unique work of art, I've recently decided to teach different parts of the "Thriller" by request in some of my classes as a warm-up, as well as in some of the social dance events that I host and co-host. My first attempt was during the Friday evening Ballroom, Latin & Swing "Promenade Dancing Class" for middle-schoolers in Virginia. I started eighty 6th, 7th & 8th graders on the routine two days before Halloween in 2003 (an appropriate time of the year for sure) as well as during the October 31st Halloween Sunday Salsa Social Party at the Chevy Chase Ballroom. Though each of tose attempts included only a small portion of the final product in the first two runs, everyone seemed to get along really well and enjoyed the choreography as much as I (and the middle-schoolers couldn't get enough of it! Very few of them since missed a class of their respective 8-week series in spite of the fact that numerous parents expressed to me afterwards how difficult it had been for them to get particularly the boys to commit to this Ballroom, Latin and Swing dance series!!).
Also since I've perfected learning to dance this phenomenal routine to the nines, I have become tired of being the only person every Halloween who can dance it from beginning to end at any of the Halloween-season dance events that I attend where they routinely play this classic song each year (which is ALL! of them, regardless of the dance style of the club). I am devoted to changing that. If you too have had a fantasy of learning this incrdible choreography, just click on the graphics above to determine the dates and times of some of the upcoming events were we'll be teaching it. I am always eager to take the time to do so for at least a segment of the routine at any of my "Dance-&-Learn" or "Sunday Salsa & Rueda, Brazilian Samba, Ballroom & Swing and Argentine Tango" social parties.
By Halloween I hope to have an ARMY of "Thriller" enthusiasts (including my middle-schoolers) able to dance the complete routine from beginning to end as a possible fund-raiser "Dance-&-Learn" event open to the public to benefit the hundreds of thousands of orphans and starving children of South Africa who have been ignored in their plight for far too long already, as well as supporting numerous other charitable events to benefit the millions of others who are so much less fortunate than those of us in this country.
So join us. You could be one of the dancing Zombies and ghouls performing to this top, top musical hit by tis year's Halloween bash. And if we all get really good at it, who knows where it might ultimately take us? (There's NO busines like SHOW business, there's NO business I Know...Thank you and God Bless you, Ethyl Merman...).
Either way the journey and fun of gradually working our way to completion of this high-energy and fun-filled end product, which is still fascinating the masses after 25 years will be more than worth the time and effort spent in the process. You needn't be experienced as every pattern will be broken down and repeated slowly and in fine detail until everyone gets it. You may purchase the "Michael Jackson Video Greatest Hits - History" DVD at www.sonymusic.com/dvd to see the complete routine (And as you watch it, keep in mind that for those who dare, we won't be leaving out ANY part of it).
The "Michael Jackson Video Greatest Hits - History" is a kaleidoscope of Michael Jackson History and includes the short films of BILLIE JEAN, THE WAY YOU MAKE ME FEEL (LONG VERSION), BLACK OR WHITE, ROCK WITH YOU, BAD (LONG VERSION), THRILLER, BEAT IT, REMEMBER THE TIME, DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU GET ENOUGH, and HEAL THE WORLD. The collection of 10 ground-breaking videos from the King of Pop is worth every cent of the $11.98 that I paid for mine (though I have to admit that I haven't even seen most of the other selections yet since I 'm so consumed with this one...some [including Mother...] might say "a little obsessive/compulsive, maybe?"...).

Before Halloween, I also hope to have a number of individuals, including the kids from the DancingKids' Network able to perform this complete routine from beginning to end. In addition, I hope to personally sign the complete song in ASL (I'm over 75% there, already...), so that wherever we perform it, the hearing impaired will be able to enjoy watching it along with the rest of us. The plan is to then perform it in different locations, as well as during a major "Dance-&-Learn" fund-raising event, all of the proceeds from which will benefit the thousands of orphaned and deprived children of Africa and the Katrina victims. It will include a format similar to the Chevy Chase Ballroom "Dance-&-Learn Parties", to additionally include this and other entertainment. Anyone who may have ideas about the means or possible very large venues for such an event, please contact Terry at TerryChasteen@hotmail.com or 202-462-0870 or visit www.DancingKidsNetwork.com.

Thriller
( Michael Jackson )

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer
Thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear the creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer
Thriller tonight

Night creatures call
And the dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time
They're open wide
This is the end of your life

They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All thru the night I'll save you from the terrors on the screen
I'll make you see

That it's a thriller, thriller night
'Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, chiller
Thriller here tonight

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller,Ooo Ooo thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer
Thriller tonight


****************************************************

( Vincent Price )

Darkness falls across the land,
The midnight hour is close at hand,
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'aws neighborhood

And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for “getting down”
Must stand and face the hounds of HELL
And rot inside a corpsed shell

The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of 40,000 years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom

And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver...
For no mere mortal can resist
The Evil of
The "Thriller"…

Aahh Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha
