Manayunk has big plans for their annual Halloween celebration! This years theme “Come for The Thrill of It” won’t disappoint. In addition to their usual Trick-or-Treating along Main Street and Fall Festival at Pretzel Park, they are also hosting the Philadelphia Flea Market AND… Are you ready for this?… Theirr first ever Zombie Thriller Dance-Off!
Zombies will be taking over Cotton Street in Manayunk, lurching out with eerie dance moves from Michael Jackson’s classic hit, Thriller. Dancers of all ages are welcome to compete in the ghoulish zombie frolic right off of Main Street in Manayunk.
Don’t know all the moves to Michael Jackson’s Thriller? No worries! They will have Merge Dance Studio Owner and Choreographer, Christa Campbell, leading a step-by-step instruction session before the competition begins.
The competition will be broken into three waves. The first, for kids ages 12 and under, the second, for teens, ages 12-18, and the final for adults, ages 18 and over! The dancers will pull off their best Michael Jackson moves and be tapped on the shoulder to exit the floor one-by-one until the winner is left standing.
$1,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the winners: “Best Dancer” and “Best Zombie Costume.”
Be sure to know the moves! Watch the video here! Come dressed in your Zombie Best!
