LSI's 25th Anniversary Party

On June 22, 2012, students, teachers, and staff all gathered at Oiwake Japanese Restaurant in Little Tokyo to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of LSI.

LSI parties are usually fun, but we were so surprised by all the special activities throughout the night. First, Managers and PCs treated everyone to an awesome Karaoke performance of "Celebrate" by Kool and the Gang. They are great singers for sure!

The BIG event of the night was LSI Idol! Many students from each campus auditioned for the chance to win the $500 prize, but only the best from LA, OC, Torrance, and Alhambra could show off their skills at the party. The first performers were dancers from OC who treated us to a steamy couples routine. Next up was a drummer from Torrance who blew the crowd away with a face-melting solo. The third performance was a break dancer from LA who wowed us all with his precise movements. The final act was Revolutionary, a rock band from Alhambra doing an excellent cover of the classic Beatles tune. Everyone was awesome, but our guest judges could only choose one winner...... Junya! The Drummer from Torrance was declared the LSI Idol of 2012!

After LSI Idol, we were treated to a special guest performance from an OC dancer. She was awesome- Lots of energy and totally cute! One of the biggest surprises of the night were the Samba Dancers from Brazil! Their costumes were colorful and bright and their dance moves were spell binding!

Throughout the night, some lucky students won iPod Nanos and one REALLY lucky student took home an iPod Touch. Once all the performances were over, it was party time! The DJ played awesome music and many people stayed and danced the night away. 

We all had such a great time celebrating LSI's 25th anniversary!
