    San Jose students were called out by police on Thursday to a dance battle.

    The event was part of Morrill Middle School's annual career day. After students heard from a host of professionals on career paths available to them, the campus and visitors gathered to hear from San Jose Police Department Sgt. Brian Spears, who served as a keynote speaker.

    Spears, along with officers Andy Yciano, Edward Carboni, Aaron Alvarez and Jennica Nguyen spoke to students about working hard to achieve success.

    Spears in his speech emphasized the importance of supporting and improving our own communities. And then he challenged students to a dance battle.

    Officers Carboni and Yciano were selected by students to represent police.

    "This experience allows our students to see our local police officers in a different light and helps build positive relationship and partnerships within the community," Principal Thomas Carroll said.

    As to who won the dance off, we'll leave that up to you to decide after watching the video above.
