Saturday, October 24, 2009; 11:45 AM

A group of dancers at Baltimore's Inner Harbor will join others across the planet dancing to Michael Jackson's "Thriller" to attempt setting a world record.

At 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Thrill the World with Dance Baltimore will perform at the Harborplace Amphitheatre.

Organizations around the world will be dancing in hopes of setting a Guinness World Record by having the most people perform the same dance at the same time.

The current record is the "hokey pokey."
