‘Thriller’ Brings Out Animal In Dancers

BUFFALO, N.Y. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The ’80s hit “Thriller” really brings out the animal in dancers.

So says Tony Bellissimo, a hip-hop dancer who was eliminated from So You Think You Can Dance last Thursday (Jun. 11).

Along with dancing, Bellissimo grew up playing sports like football, and his pigskin buddies often gave him hell for being a twinkle toes.

However, he managed to show his best friend the “thrill” of groovin’ by taking him to a few dance classes between practices.

At the last class they performed to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and his buddy got so into it, Bellissimo says he “tore his shirt right off like an animal” midway through the song.

After that, his pal realized why dancing was cool and Bellissimo stated his case to the rest of his football friends.

He says, “I told them, ‘You guys tackle guys all day, and I’m out here [at the dance studio] picking up girls!’ They got it.”
