Almost a hundred 6th, 7th and 8th grade zombies lurched their way toward onlookers to the beat of Michael Jackson's Thriller. The Sunny Brea Middle School students performed the 13 minute routine Tuesday on the Arcata Plaza.


The students devoted five hours over the course of two weeks working on the routine. Social Studies and Zumba teacher Ann Youman choreographed the dance.


Youman said she enjoys it just as much as the students, "It's a blast, mutual funness."
