'Flash mob' on the New Haven Green was young people

NEW HAVEN — About 100 students from five New Haven and four suburban high schools staged a flash mob Thursday on the Green, a school spokesman said.

The students attend the Cooperative International Studies Program, “an afterschool enrichment program open to urban and suburban high schools” and “decided to stage the flash mob – a seemingly spontaneous group dance in a public place – because they are studying international music and dance this semester,“ the spokesman said.

“The students wanted to tie their studies to a group activity and decided to do a flash mob,” High School in the Community teacher John Stacey said, also in the statement. “This event is not only fun, but also shows urban and suburban kids studying and working together. The international relations program is a wonderful opportunity not only for kids to learn about the wider world, but also to bridge the gap between city and suburbs.”

Participating were students from High School in the Community, Wilbur Cross High School, Cooperative Arts and Humanities High School, Metropolitan Business Academy and Hill Regional Career High School, all in New Haven.

Also taking part were students from East Haven High School, Ansonia High School, Amity High School and Seymour High School, the statement said.
