Thriller Dance Hen Party

  • Thriller Hen Party Dance Class in York - Oct 2015

    Hi there,
    My bridesmaids organised the Thriller dance class for my hen do at the weekend just passed in York and I just wanted to say how much fun we all had. Suzi Scarlett was our instructor, she was so much fun and so bubbly that she really made the class enjoyable for everyone even those who were less comfortable with dancing.
    Thanks for such a fun experience, not something I’ll forget any time soon and my friends and I are hoping to pull out a few moves we learned at the wedding in a couple of weeks’ time.
    Thanks again,
    Roz xxx

    Thank you,

  • Thriller Hen Party Dance Class in Bristol - Jun 2015

    Dear Elena & Cece,
    Just a little note to say a massive thank you for all your help with Rhian's Hen Do this weekend. We all had the best time, Polly was fantastic, she made us laugh but most of all taught us a set of fabulous MJ moves that we continued to try out as we walked back to the hotel!!
    I'd definitely recommend you and we have all said we'd love to do another class!
    Thanks so much

  • Thriller Hen Party Dance Class in Bristol - Jun 2015

    Just a quick message to say thank you so much for organising our amazing thriller dance class last Saturday (6th June) in Bristol. We all had an amazing time, and Helen (the bride) absolutely loved it. I'm sure Michael Jackson was spinning in his grave watching our efforts but we all had a great laugh so it was well worth it. None of us had done anything like this for a hen party before and I think it worked really well because as most of us didn't know one another it was good to have an activity to do because it acted as a bit of an ice-breaker and allowed us to all make fools of ourselves together!
    I also wanted to say that Polly, was fantastic. She was great at explaining what to do to a bunch of novices in what was a relatively short period of time. She was encouraging and made it do-able for those of us on the larger side! so all my anxiety about looking like a fairy elephant was gone with seconds of starting! I will definitely be recommending you to anyone I know who is having a party and I would be happy to write a testimonial for the website if you should need one! Thanks again for all your efforts and for doing such a great job for us.
    Best wishes, Vicky

Thriller Choreographer: Sherene

Michael Jackson is the undisputed king of dance and this hen party experience is all about getting that MJ style - Oww! I LOVE Michael Jackson. I grew up on his music & have 4 big sisters who spent hours making me do the moves to 'Beat it' & then 'Thriller' when I was little and I loved it. I think it had a big influence on me becoming a dancer. I always wanted to be able to have fun dancing in music videos.

The Thriller hen party is all about the fun of pretending to be Michael & dancing like him. We do all his famous moves including the popping & locking, and of course the iconic moonwalk. We run it as a sort of Michael Jackson boot camp (all done for laughs) where we put the hens through their paces as they learn how do dance like Michael. It's a good excuse to play lots of his tracks. We even do a Michael Jackson dance off where the bride & her hens get the chance to do a little section of the 'Beat it' routine from the music video - the moves are easy so it always looks really good & reminds me of my childhood.

Then the moment we've all been waiting for - the Thriller routine! We start off with a Zombie workshop where everyone gets into the spirit then we go over the moves step by step. I use special names for all the moves which I shout out to help then hens remember what to do. The idea is to make it something they could perform as a flash mob either later that night when they're out and about, or even at the wedding reception!

One of the things I love about our Thriller hens is that they never take themselves seriously. Everyone has seen the Thriller video so it's familier to the whole group & everyone can join in. Within minutes they're always running around and having fun. I've also seen some amazing costumes from our Thriller groups which really make it so much fun to teach because when they all perform the routine they look fantastic. I definietly recommend dressing up as Zombies.

If you have any Michael Jackson fans, or if you just want to do something light-hearted & silly where everyone can join in, then a Thriller party is a winner. And, don't forget to send us your Thriller photos - we love them!

Thriller Hen Party Costume Ideas

If you're doing the Michael Jackson Thriller hen party then we recommend really going for it on the costume front. We love groups who come in full fancy dress to their Michael Jackson Thriller hen parties. You can get a red Michael Jackson jumpsuit online for the bride to wear which will look amazing in the photos.

thrillertoiletpaperThen for the rest of the hens, the scarier the better. Get some old clothes & shred them so that you look as though you've just risen from the dead. For a really low budget hen party costume idea, you could even go for the mummy look with some loo roll!

Or, you could play it down with the outfits by having a colour code (like all black) then use theatrical hair & make up to create your look. Think halloween style zombie make up & crazy back combed hair.thrillerzombiemakeup

It is easy to organise as you can ask then hens to arrive 30 mins early then pop into the changing rooms & give everyone a quick Thriller make over. It all adds to the fun & makes a nice change from the usual pink sashes & high heels that you see on hen groups.

Footwear: barefoot is fine as that's probably what the zombies would do.


Hope our Cheerleading Company Thriller hen party costume tips help you find your Michael Jackson dance hen party outfits & we can't wait to see your costume photos : )
