C.C. Winn High School in Eagle Pass, Texas knows how to throw an amazing party/pep rally! Last week, students put together a celebration that took over the gym with music, dancing and performances that went beyond a standard pep rally. Their goal was to celebrate the school as well as Latino culture.

MySA.com reports that onlookers could enjoy the papel picado decorations, bake sales, and performances from “the Silverline Dance Team, Mav Cheer squad, Thundering Maverick Band and a group of male students who voluntarily made up the ‘The Silverline Cowboys.'”

The dance performances have gained some attention online as well. The Silverline Dance Team and Silverline Cowboy’s routine inspired by Selena, and the Silverline Cowboy’s solo routine to Grupo Control’s “El Tao Tao” are crowd favorites. The idea stemmed from the dance team’s sponsor Denisse Villarreal’s goal to increase male involvement in dance. Apparently, her plan was a big hit with the high school boys who now want to form their own dance troupe.

C.C. Winn High School officials are proud of their students for putting so much thought and time into celebrating their student body’s cultural heritage around Diez y Seis de Septiembre (Mexican Independence Day) in such a positive way.
