Emerald Belles Captain

ABOUT JESSICA: As upcoming Emerald Belles Captain, Jessica Bowman is used to performing in high-pressure situations. She first put on her dancing shoes at age three, and it’s been her passion ever since. She moved to Southlake from Austin and joined the Belles her sophomore year.

When not dancing, Bowman is involved with NHS, the Key Club, and Grapevine Church of Christ. She’s also a model for the Campbell Agency. Bowman enjoys volunteering with aspiring Belles at youth camps and birthday parties.

During her time with the Belles, Bowman has performed at AT&T Stadium, on a cruise ship
in the Bahamas, and at various regional and national competitions where she’s placed highly. In addition, Bowman is on a competitive studio team at Artistry in Motion Performing Arts Center. Bowman has won a dance scholarship to NYU.

FAVORITE CLASS: “Emerald Belles,” Bowman says. “I can’t imagine starting my day any other way than with 90 of my best friends and directors Melissa Page and Kathryn Dobrow, who encourage us to work hard. I’m thankful and honored to lead the team.”

WHAT OTHERS SAY: “Jessica is an outstanding role model in Belles and at Carroll Senior High,” Drill Team Director Melissa Page says. “She’s such a joy to teach because of her work ethic, leadership skills, talent, and overall positive demeanor.”
