East LA High School Celebrates Homecoming with Flashmob Dance

By EGP News

Students at Esteban E. Torres High School in East Los Angeles today “got a feeling” that their homecoming game and dance would be memorable.

Nearly 500 students packed the quad for a lunchtime flashmob dance to Black-Eyed Peas’ hit song, “I’ve Got A Feeling.”

The event marked the culmination of the schools’ first spirit week; the school opened three years ago and the football team has been in existence for two years.

Five pep rallies–one for each school on the campus–took place earlier this morning.

The dance was led by the East LA Performing Arts Academy, one of the five schools on the Torres campus, is supported by a grant from the Flourish Foundation, a charitable organization established by Phil Rosenthal, producer of “Everybody Loves Raymond,” according to an LAUSD press release.

The Toros will play Bernstein High School, located in Hollywood, for the homecoming game. The game will take place at the campus located at 4211 Dozier Street in East Los Angeles.
