FBCA Cheer completed a UCA Cheer Camp for the first time, where they learned material to be used at future competitions. Among the skills they worked on were cheers, chants, dances, and stunting.
"I feel very honored, and it is great to know that all my hard work from freshman year to this year has paid off," Kiley said.
"It was unexpected," states Lexi. "But I'm truly so honored and grateful to be recognized for my abilities with this title."
As All American cheerleaders, Kiley and Lexi are invited to perform during the Varsity New Year's Day Parade in London, England.
Emerald Brigade recently attended UDA (Universal Dance Association) Camp. The squad received all superior ribbons for their hip hop and performance routines and qualified to go to Nationals in January.
Each dancer was evaluated on two routines that they learned at camp. To receive a bid to Nationals, each dancer had to earn a Superior ribbon for their performance.
After auditioning by performing the required routines, and adding their own choreography, Erin and Lauren received the great distinction of being named UDA All American dancers. Erin and Lauren are invited to participate in the New Year's Day parade in London, England.
"Through God and the support of my family, I have achieved more than I could imagine. I am honored for this opportunity to represent my dance team, FBCA, and my community. Above all else, I thank God for this amazing opportunity. I am looking forward to doing my best as an All-American dancer," Lauren said.
"I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity to represent the FBCA dance team as an All-American dancer,” shared Erin. “I would not be able to achieve this accomplishment without the support of my family and friends. I look forward to glorifying God throughout the year alongside my teammates and continuing to progress in my skills."
This has been a great start to the inaugural year of Emerald Brigade! FBCA is excited to support Emerald Brigade at UDA Nationals in Orlando, FL, on January 29-31, 2021.
