Emerald Belles

The Emerald Belles Dance Team is Super-Sized drill team from Texas with a long-standing tradition of excellence.  Over the past 22 years this super-sized team has won many State, National and International titles as well performances as the featured entertainment for Carnival and Royal Caribbean Cruise lines.  In 2017, Belles were featured on CMT’s Making of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleadersas the “WOW” top performance from College and High School teams.  In 2018, their program was featured on the opening segment of NBC Sunday Night Football as a long Texas Tradition. What makes this team unique is that they perform the first half of the school year as a traditional high kick drill team performing on Friday night football games and the second half of the year the team completely transitions into an award-winning competitive dance team.

As one of the largest drill teams in the country, our team ranges yearly anywhere from 80-100 girls. It takes more than talent to make this team of champions.  The girls must be committed to training every morning at 6:45 am before school begins, sometimes after school, weekends and holidays all while maintaining a high academic standard.  One special fact that makes this team stand out is that they foster an environment of Positivity.  The team believes in empowering her girls to become leaders and teaches them to embrace the differences among the team.  This Power of Positivity message over the past 20 years has not only proven to be successful on the field but has built an alumni network of over 10,000 women.

There are many dance forms of dance featured on television today however, high kick is rarely represented. We want to show the world our creativity through this traditional dance form.
