Sugar Land, TX – Fort Bend Christian Academy selected members for the Emerald Brigade dance team, the newest addition to the FBCA Spirit Program. The purpose of this dance team is to promote school spirit, good sportsmanship, school loyalty, and artistic expression in a Christ-centered way. A year-long sport, Emerald Brigade enhances the already prominent athletic program to include those students that excel at dance.

Angie Civalero, FBCA Theology teacher, will serve as the Dance Director while Mackenzie Shimek, FBCA parent, will serve as the Assistant Dance Director. The Emerald Brigade inaugural members are Isabella Bartz (‘23), Isabella Deshon (‘23), Payton Dailey (‘22), Erin Kram (‘22), Lauren Ramirez (‘22), Elizabeth Walker (‘21), and Mickey Wood (‘23).

“I couldn’t be happier to announce the inaugural members of Emerald Brigade! These girls are dedicated to, and enthusiastic for, this team and I can’t wait until they can perform for the school,” said Coach Civalero. “Having been on my own high school’s dance team, I know how very powerful an outlet this can be for our students, and I am so pleased I get to play a part in bringing this program to FBCA.”

“I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the inaugural Fort Bend Christian Academy dance team. I cannot wait to get started helping these young ladies make amazing memories and learn lifelong lessons,” said Coach Shimek.

Fort Bend Christian Academy is a private, Christian college-preparatory school located in the heart of Sugar Land, Texas.
