Oh my gosh, Nicole, Noell and I rented the Thriller video back in the 80s and played that thing a thousand times until we memorized that dance. The first time I saw that Jennifer Garner movie, "13 Going on 30" and that scene where she busts out and does the Thriller dance at that party, I about died, I was blushing and laughing so hard, I didn't know anyone else had done that!?

Hunting for useful sources that can help you to learn dance online is really time-consuming. However, if you are getting tired of searching for such resources over the internet, visit the website and go through dance directories.
