A Flash Mob in New Milford Wakes the Dead With ‘Thriller’
It's become a Halloween tradition in New Milford, and this year was no exception. The Thriller Flash Mob was back in full effect.
It's part of the "Trunk or Treat" event -- another New Milford tradition that promotes safe Halloween trick or treating for area children. The concept was started by Christine Teixeira, a former Radio City Rockette, who owns Jazzercise in New Milford. Each year since it's debut on the New Milford Green new dance moves, and surprises are added to Michael Jackson's monsterous hit, Thriller. Christine's adaptation of the famous Thriller choreography is always a spectacle, but according to the Flash Mob's official Facebook page, you don't need to be a trained dancer to learn, just attend a few rehearsals.
Those 60 or so people involved in the performance go through a few fun, but extensive rehearsals at the Connecticut Sports Arena for a couple of weeks prior to the actual "live" performance at "Trunk or Treat". Here's the video from last night:
