Group Emerald Belles stuns 2017 contest with high kick line

June 26th, 2020

There is something deeply satisfying in watching a dance group delivering an awesome show.

Whether it’s the over the top choreography or the way they sync together perfectly, your eyes are simply glued to the dance. In most cases, we mostly assume that a dance group has five to ten members at most. As it turns out, that’s not the case for this group!

Emerald Belles is one of the largest drill teams in the United States, ranging from 70 to 100 girls in a team yearly.

But enough talk—we’re eager to know what it all looks like.

The Emerald Belles Drill Team is from Southlake, Texas and they have been competing for over 23 years under the direction of Melissa Page.

The team has won many state, national and international titles. The performance we’re seeing here is their 2017 show from the Crowd Pleasers Dance Area Competition.

It’s the annual competition in Houston, Texas which wouldn’t have been the same if these talented girls weren’t part of it.

The goal is to entertain the audience and make them feel the rhythm—and the Emerald Belles definitely did that here.

The concept of the dance was “Sweet Dreams,” and there were 80 girls dancing on the floor.

Their eye-catching, skin-colored costumes make you feel as if you were really in a dream and many dancing silhouettes are floating in front of your eyes.

With the sound of “Sweet Dreams” in the background, all dancers came to the stage and took their initial positions.

The beginning of the routine is graceful, attractive and a little slow—but things explode from that moment on. The rhythm gets faster, and you get the idea of why the performance is nicknamed “High kick.” The entire time, it seems like their legs are reaching for the ceiling!

These girls practiced this to perfection.

We’re not even sure if we can pinpoint the best part of the video, but here is an unforgettable moment: the way they form a circle, and then move hands, one by one, with perfect timing. It’s around the first minute of the video, and we were awestruck.

Their moves were so perfect that it’s hard to sum up with words!

The thing we liked a lot is that their costumes all had black lines on them, which makes it even easier to follow every move. It makes every girl distinctive, and each one has her own little spotlight. The result is true teamwork on display.

This group went from competing on Season 14 of America’s Got Talent to dancing in the Dallas Mavericks’ halftime show.

The girls made it through three rounds on America’s Got Talent and were featured live on NBC in the quarterfinals from the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.

They were also entertainment or special guests on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Good Morning Texas, Kidd Kraddick Morning Show and many more.

The Emerald Belles seem to be everywhere, and after watching the way they dance, we understand why.

With two decades of experience and such a devotion to the craft, this team is destined for success.

The team’s motto is “Be Kind, Be a Belle,” and it’s clearly working.

The girls have been winning one competition after another. The audience loves them, and their every move is followed by a loud “wow” from the crowd.
