Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Photos from Week 7

The match up between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles was as important as they come.  The game featured the top two teams in the division and two teams with deep play off expectations, so it was a little bit of a surprise that only one team came to play.   And that team was the Dallas Cowboys, whose offense ran roughshod all over the Eagles defense to the tune of 189 yards and three touchdowns. 

Final score: Cowboys – 37, Eagles – 10

With the win, the Cowboys improve to 4 – 3 and take over the top spot in the division.  Now let us turn our attention to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  Click here to view this week’s images.


Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Photos from Week 5

The Dallas Cowboys hosted the Green Bay Packers in the glamor game of the week.  I know it was the most anticipated game of the week for me, matching up two of the best teams in the NFL and two teams with the most history in the game.  Unfortunately, only one team showed up to play and they were the Packers whose offense ran the ball effectively and whose defense forced Dak Prescott into throwing three critical interceptions.  Still it was an exciting game.

Final score: Packers – 34, Dallas – 24.

Every Dallas home game is special because we get another view of the premier dance team in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  Click here to view the Cowboys game day gallery from Week 5.


Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Photos from Week 3

America’s team is off to a rousing start to the season and in Week 3, things kept on rolling for the Cowboys as they beat up on the lowly Miami Dolphins, 31 – 6.  With the Ezekiel Elliott hold out situation resolved in time for the start of the season and Dak Prescott throwing the ball around like a top five quarterback, the Dallas Cowboys are looking like a Super Bowl contender.  Things are definitely looking up for America’s team.

And speaking of America’s team, let’s take a look at America’s Sweethearts, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.  Click here to view the Cowboys gallery of images from last Sunday.

  • Enthusiasm
  • Poise
  • Showmanship
  • Personal Appearance
  • Figure
  • Personality

What are Prep Classes?

Audition Prep Classes are non-mandatory dance classes offered to provide excellent preparation for the upcoming audition. They are taught by DCC Choreographers and Group Leaders during the months leading up to Auditions. You may attend one or all the classes. (Prep Class Information)

What is Show Group?

The DCC Show Group showcases the advanced dance techniques and vocal skills of an elite group of 12 Cheerleaders in a fully choreographed musical variety extravaganza. The entire show features elaborately costumed and carefully staged production numbers filled with singing and dancing for every taste – from Classical to Country to good ol’ Rock-n-Roll.

A separate audition process during the summer allows interested DCC the opportunity to demonstrate their dance and/or singing qualifications for selection to Show Group.

If I can’t do the splits should I try out?

Yes, if you are a great performer and truly want to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader you should try out. Flexibility and splits are REQUIRED by the start of the football season but continual stretching and flexibility work can eventually get results.

We recommend that you stretch “warm muscles”. Spend a few minutes with activity that does not require full range of motion.

Then, stretch your body with particular focus on the hamstrings and hip flexors.

When working toward your splits, using support, such as folded blankets on either side of your legs, can help you maintain your position as you work toward 180 degrees.

Be consistent with your stretching routine and never rush the process. Injuries will lead to disappointment and set you back from your goal.

How should I wear my make-up?

Wear shades that complement your natural beauty. Choose mostly mattes for eye shadows. A little shimmer is okay but avoid a very glittery look. Also avoid false eyelashes that are very solid or very long, as they can make eyes appear heavy and too dark. Cheek and lip colors should be vibrant neutral tones, avoid shades that are loud/bright. Also avoid too much contast with contouring and highlighting. Finally, a spray tan can look great, but it should be warm without orange tones and with face and body color being similar. Facial features are “lost” when a spray tan is too dark.

How should I wear my hair?

Hair should be worn down and in a current hairstyle that compliments your features. Make sure your hair does not hide your face. You may call Tangerine Salon, our official hair care partner, at 972-393-9200 to schedule an appointment to get the look and style that best suits you for your audition.

Are there certain dance moves that I must be able to do at auditions?

There are no specific movements that must be executed at preliminaries. Freestyle dance should be a blend of hip-hop/jazz that incorporates movements that you feel comfortable with technically. At semi-finals, the choreography in the dance combination is different each year. However, expect a pirouette to be included. Throughout auditions, the most important performance quality is confidence. So, with any of the dance elements, use great posture, strong, controlled movements and always, with a smile!

May I try out if I have a tattoo?

Yes, you may try out if you have a tattoo. Our policy is that even the smallest of tattoos may not be visible in the uniform or in rehearsal attire. There are many effective products available at stores or online. Additionally, concealer, followed by setting powder, then bronzer to match color, can also be effective.

Can my family watch auditions?

No, the auditions are closed to the public.
