Elizabeth Avenue School Showcases Its Diversity With Inaugural ‘Talent And Taste’ Event

Dancing was one of the talents on display at the EAS Talent and Taste event.

The melting pot of cultures that is Elizabeth Avenue School was on display June 20 in the school’s first “Talent and Taste” event.

Students from throughout the school’s grade levels showed off their various talents, from dancing to singing to martial arts.

The talent show was followed by a multicultural dinner featuring food brought in by students.

“We have all types of food from all over the world, from the Dominican Republic, to Brazil, to Poland, Spain,” said Gregory Romero, the school’s vice principal. “You name it, we have it.”

“It was all donated,” he said. “That’s what our community is about. Our school comes together at times like this to celebrate everything that we have. We’re very lucky, it’s very special to have this, and that’s what makes Elizabeth Avenue a great school to be at.”

Romero said the talent show was meant to showcase “the diverse talents we have in our school.”

“We have a beautiful, multicultural diverse community, and it’s something to be proud of, something to showcase and something to really represent where you’re from and your culture and the language that you speak,” he said. “That’s what Elizabeth Avenue is about, showcasing that.”

Here are some scenes from the evening:
