Thriller Dance Instr 2

Flash Mob For Thriller

Be warned! At any time or any place, you will hear this famous song by Michael Jackson.  When you do be ready!!!  You only have a few minutes to get into place.
         (remember we are old so we won’t be doing the whole song)

                               (after in place start music over)

  1. Walk on place with heavy feet to the count of 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

2.   Walk in place like in step 1, except this time nod head to right           shoulder on the counts of 1,5,7

3.   Turn body to left. Left arm out straight and right arm down slightly back, head is facing front. Step forward and rolling hips like (in a saddle) and nodding head with each count: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

I choreographed this dance by using these two You Tube Videos, this will give you a visual of what it should look like: Just copy and paste only your internet home page:

*This will take some practice. Do it with friends and your chapter. It is easier than it looks and fairly quick to learn.
