The Emerald Belles dance team were performing at the Crowd Pleasers Dance Contest when they suddenly fell to the floor. To the untrained eye, it looked like that might have been the end of their performance. But after the dancers returned to their feet, the ensuing magical moves left the crowd captivated.
For Melissa Page, it appears that dancing came just as naturally as walking. And the Texas native has been busting moves since she was just three years old, in fact. She became a head cheerleader in school, furthermore, and then was part of dance teams throughout her time in college. It’s therefore little wonder that Page has carved out an award-winning career for herself in the industry.
Indeed, since 1997 Page has helmed the Emerald Belles, a top dance team based at Carroll Senior High School. The school in Southlake, Texas, is known for its impressive athletics record. That’s right: students have triumphed in 20 state competitions across a series of sports in the space of just over 40 years. And the achievements of Carroll’s dance teams are just as notable.
