Thrill the World Portland says
After a lot of legwork this week by many people, we're finally able to announce that we will be dancing in the streets! We will have SW 2nd Avenue between Burnside and Ash closed off for several hours on Saturday afternoon, to take us through the dance. We'll have informal practice starting around 1 pm; it won't be a full-on practice, so join us tomorrow night for practice [see below] and keep Thrilling at home!

Please be on hand by 2:45 to sign in. As always, we request five dollars per dancer, with all proceeds to go to SMYRC, Portland's Sexual Minority Youth Resource Center. We need you to sign in, to be able to dance. We're going to have plenty of room to spread out, and we'll have Saturday Market on one side of us, and Ankeny Alley on the other.

Our final formal practice is tomorrow night - join us at 6 pm at Fremont UMC, 2620 NE Fremont St. Let me know if you have questions about any of this information!

Costumes optional, as always.
Afterwards, please send us links to video of the dance posted online.

We're indebted to amazing partners in making this dance happen: Dan & Louis' Oyster Bar, for doing heaps of work securing the location; our amazing instructors: Schlyce, Chalaina, and Sara; Kate Blackmore, for making TTW Portland a reality to begin with; NECN, King NA, and the City; Fremont UMC for donating practice space; Percy, for arranging sound equipment for us; all of the volunteers who help out on the day of the dance, and most of all, you the dancers, who make the dance what it is.

See you on Saturday! (and tomorrow night, if you're coming to practice)
Alan
