Dismissed: Tenants lose, landlords win in Baltimore's rent court

Dancers are gearing up for Saturday's mass "Thriller" performance

Several months ago, dozens of dancers began training to zombie walk and booty swim their way through a mass synchronized performance of Michael Jackson's thriller.

The celebration, called "Thrill the World" will take place in the Inner Harbor at 8 p.m. Saturday.

As of today, about 275 have registered to perform the dance.

At the exact same time, thousands (if not hundreds of thousands) will join them around the world, in an effort to set a record for the largest synchronized dance routine at various venues ...

"It's been a lot of fun putting this together," said Cheryl Goodman, who organized the event. "The diversity of the people who are doing this is amazing."

Goodman has worked with 4-year-olds, senior citizens, men, women and folks from all different races, shapes and sizes, she said.

"I'm just amazed," she said. "Everybody has a great time."

If it rains, the performance will be moved to the Hippodrome, Goodman said.
