NEWPORT BEACH — It was "Dancing with the Stars," but instead of football players and reality-TV personalities, teachers took to the stage.
Newport Harbor High School's theater was packed Tuesday night for the first-ever "Dancing with the Teachers" to benefit the school's dance program. It was the first of two performances.
"I'm so proud of these guys for getting on this stage and doing what they are doing," said Principal Michael Vossen, who also served as a judge.
Teachers showed their stuff in eight choreographed routines and performed with members of the dance team to try and win the audience's vote for best dancer.
The prize? A mirrored-ball trophy.
Three judges —Vossen, ASB Secretary Emmy Mitchell and former student and varsity dancer Alicia Favela — were also on stage to share their input and score the routines.
