Last Sunday, thousands of fans piled into StubHub Center in Carson to watch the Los Angeles Chargers take on the Denver Broncos.
When the game hit halftime, the crowd’s cheers echoed off the stadium walls as bright pink shirts and pom-poms, including the Laguna Beach High School dance company, spread across the field for the halftime show.
Nearly two dozen Laguna Beach High School girls performed in support of breast cancer awareness month. “We danced for all the survivors, especially our dance teacher, Ms. Carrizosa, who recently beat breast cancer,” said LBHS senior Katie Moore. Laguna Beach High School, the only high school present, danced alongside college cheerleaders from UCLA, UCI, and CSU Fullerton, and the Charger Girls.
“The entire experience was very uplifting,” said Carrizosa, “I am so proud of the professionalism our girls demonstrated. We seized the opportunity to positively represent our school and our community of Laguna Beach.”
