SANTA CLARITA - A group of 35 teachers — all dressed as zombies — burst from among Sierra Vista Junior High School students and launched into a much-rehearsed flash mob dance Thursday in the middle of the school quad.

Students at the Canyon Country school reacted with surprise and delight at their teachers’ Halloween zombie gyrations to megahits like “Backstreet’s Back” by the Backstreet Boys and “Thriller” by Michael Jackson.

English teacher Robert Isquierdo organized the event and was ecstatic that the students were surprised and the dance went well.

“This is what I live for, right here,” Isquierdo said. “The kids are happy. The teachers are happy.”

Isquierdo’s hope was that the mob dance would bring a “sense of community” and raise school pride among students, faculty and parents.

“It’s a huge success,” seventh-grade teacher Lacy Bregger said. “It’s a neat thing for the kids to see the teachers have fun and dress up.”

Seventh-grader Monique Chamberlain agreed. “It looked like so much fun,” she said.

The event is becoming something of an October tradition at Sierra Vista. Last school year around this time Isquierdo organized a flash mob dance to raise awareness for breast cancer. He hopes to continue it and organize another one in the future.

“When they see teachers making fun of themselves,” he said of the students, “all of a sudden they feel so much more comfortable.”
