The undead dancers performed a 15-minute dance routine to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Rihanna’s “Disturbia.” The dancers, who consisted of mostly 10-20-year-old girls and women, fused hip hop, cheerleading and jazz styles for the performance but maintained their zombiefied demures by purposely staggering  and displaying monotone expressions throughout the routine.
