Sponsor Spotlight: Dallaswear

Editor’s note: The NBA audition season is here and if you are a dancer who is planning on trying out this year, you may want to consider an audition outfit by one of our longtime sponsors, Dallaswear.



THERE IS ONLY ONE DALLASWEAR

For over 20 years Dallaswear Uniforms has designed some of the most iconic uniforms in the industry.  From the Laker Girls to the Atlanta Falcons, our uniforms can be seen on beautiful Pro Cheerleaders in the NFL, NBA, NHL and many college and semi-pro leagues. Our clients come back time and time again because we deliver the hottest, best fitting uniforms in the business… always on time! Take a look at our Gallery to see our hundreds of gorgeous clients!

Excellent Fit

Our outfits are specifically made to flatter all of your best assets. Our  signature ‘Dallas Shorts’ are cut to give you the best low-rise look with the perfect cheek coverage. Our waistbands don’t dig into your skin so there’s no ‘muffin-top’ or bulges. Mostly all of our tops are designed to cover your own personal halter bra, so you can feel secure and comfortable at your audition or on the field. Fashion changes fast, and so do we. Keeping our styles sexy and modern is what makes you stand out in the crowd.

Best Quality Fabrics

We only use the best Spandex Tricot and Poly Blends in our uniforms. Our fabrics are perfectly stretchy and washable. You’ll love the selection of colors that will surely match your team’s colors or  your dream outfit. The fabric we use for the NBA and NFL is the same fabric we use for your dancewear and audition outfits. We believe that when you look good, you feel good (and you dance good!), so all of our Lycra, sequin and prints are top quality. In addition to our wide selection of solid color fabrics, we also have several Limited Edition prints. One of the things that can really make your audition or team outfit stand out is to use fabric with a cool pattern. We add new prints often to keep the style and looks fresh! 

If you are a team director, send us an email from our Contact Us page and we’ll help you design something special.   So have fun mixing and matching all of our styles and prints and create the outfit of your dreams.

Cheers and Love!

Work: Being a Pro Cheerleader in the Workplace

Escape the mid-week slump and tune in to Mhkeeba and Brittany, two former Seattle Sea Gals, as they discuss how they balanced their lives as pro cheerleaders with their careers – from the white lies they told to escape work to participate in promo appearances to not being taken seriously in their 9 to 5 roles. Whether balancing a few part-time jobs or tackling the corporate world, all pro cheerleaders and dancers need to have solid income to support their dreams of dancing. This episode explores how pro cheerleaders tackle difficult workplace issues such as sexual harassment and issues with difficult managers.

Cheer Chat is a very unfortunate announcement of yet another team removing their female dance team to be replaced with a coed hip hop crew – the Orlando Magic. The day before this episode launched the Philadelphia Sixers also announced the elimination of the all female Sixers Dancers to be replaced by a coed hip hop team, which brings the grand total to six NBA teams including the San Antonio Spurs! During Locker Talk the ladies reminisce on some of the craziest things they have had to do at work in order to arrive at dance practice, a game or an appearance all glammed up!
