Denver International Airport ‘Thrills’ Halloween Passengers with Zombie Dance Performances

Home

DENVER, CO — Oct. 31, 2013 — Halloween travelers at Denver International Airport (DIA) were surprised today when a hoard of zombies took over the main terminal’s Great Hall with flash mob dance performances of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”

Dozens of dancers in zombie-themed costumes and makeup took part in the flash mob, which was organized by DIA’s Art and Culture Program in conjunction with the Littleton-based Overstreet Dance Gallery. Passengers arriving in the main terminal, airport employees and other visitors were treated to two performances of the classic “Thriller” dance, based on the 1983 hit music video that is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
