The students of Dance Fusion Northwest and the Doddridge family of Salmon Creek are teaming up for some delightfully scary — and socially distant — dance performances on Halloween night.
Dance Fusion’s students usually dress up like ghouls and zombies and dance their way out of the Abrams Park woods in Ridgefield to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as part of the Ridgefield Art Association’s Halloween Hall festivities. But this year, the Art Association’s outing has been canceled due to the coronavirus.
So Dave and Deanna Doddridge, who host a Halloween haunted house annually, invited the dancers to get thrilling outside their home at 15000 N.E. Fifth Ave. (on the corner of Northeast 150th Street and Fifth Avenue, just off 149th Street, north of the Salmon Creek Fred Meyer store).
Socially distanced trick-or-treating begins at the Doddridge home at 6 p.m. Oct. 31, and performances of “Thriller” will take place every 30 minutes, beginning at 7 p.m. and continuing until 9:30 p.m.
There will be ample room for distancing, according to Dance Fusion director Carla Kendall-Bray, and masks are required on all visitors.
