WOULD you rather watch the Michael Jackson-inspired Thriller Live musical in Kuala Lumpur, or get off the wall and participate in an ultra exclusive dance workshop with its performers?
Well, here’s your chance to do both.
The Thriller Live Flashmob Dance Competition on Feb 8 will offer winners the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from the cast of the hit West End musical. And all you have to do is dance to some Michael Jackson tunes as part of a flashmob – you can’t even call that work!
On top of that, winners will also get cash prizes and, of course, tickets to Thriller Live, which will be staged from March 19 to 25 at Putra Indoor Stadium.
Here’s how the competition works. First you gotta get a group of (preferably) talented dancers and sign up together. The secret flashmob location will then be revealed to you, and you have to keep it a secret. On the day of the competition, you show up at the location, and dance to the songs of the King of Pop.
It’s that simple.
Each group will be judged in two categories. The first is based on the judges’ scores, and the best teams will walk away with cash prizes (RM2,000 for the grand prize winner).
The second category, however, is the big one – a video of each team’s performance will be recorded and uploaded onto organiser Milestone Entertainment’s Facebook page.
The three groups with the most “Likes” will then win even more cash prizes, tickets to Thriller Live and invitations to the exclusive dance workshop. You definitely do not want to miss this opportunity.
Now here’s exactly how you can register for the competition:
> Form your flashmob group. Each group can have between eight to 20 people.
> Download the participation form here.
> Fill up the form. Consent from a parent or legal guardian is required for participants below 18.
> Email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thriller Live in Malaysia will feature some of Jackson’s best music, including ABC, Blame It On The Boogie, Rock With You, Thriller and Bad.
The two-hour production is the 20th longest-running show in West End history, with over 5,000 shows in 28 countries worldwide so far. So expect a thriller of a performance by the 50 performers, which includes an 11-piece live band.
