The MLS season is under way and we want to thank FC Dallas Girls Director and good friend of this site Tamara Jenkins for sharing some photos of her 2012 squad.

FC Dallas Dancers: Who will be selected?

fc-dallas-2010-auditions_finalists

Tonight is a big night for a group of Dallas area dancers. It’s finals night for the FC Dallas Dancers. I hear from the team’s director Tamara Jenkins that there was an excellent turnout for open calls, despite the ridiculous weather.

In the past two weeks, these ladies have experienced a lot and they are fully invested. They’ve been through prelims, interviews, and training camp. They’ve had a chance to work with super talented guest choreographer Roger Lee. They’ve also received pointers on their hair and makeup from representatives from Toni & Guy. They’re as ready as they can get. (And I bet they’re pretty sore too.) Tonight the final 19 will be pared down to 12-16. Good luck, ladies!

The team will be announced tomorrow. In the mean time, check out what they’ve been up to so far. We’ve got some behind the scenes photos and the first two videos in their audition series. (James posted part 1 a few days ago, so you may have already seen it.)

The Best Convention in Professional Cheerleading

All-Pro3 Inc, the company that produces the P-R-O Convention is excited to announce the All-Star line up of guest instructors for their 2009 Convention. Professional Cheerleaders and Dancers from all over the world travel to Atlanta to learn choreography from these instructors every year.

“We always like to add some fresh, new instructors each year to teach alongside our fabulous veteran choreographers” says Tracy Rutledge of All-Pro3. “Raquel Torres-Garcia will be joining us from the San Antonio Spurs, and Ken Martin from USA Pro Cheerleaders will also teach for us for the first time.”


The Tampa Bay Lightning Girls

Rutledge boasts “We pride ourselves in showcasing actual Directors, Managers, and Choreographers who actively run pro teams. Their choreography is always usable and fan friendly, exactly what professional cheerleaders and dancers are looking to learn.”

P-R-O Instructors for 2009:

Tami Krause-NFL Minnesota Vikings & NLL Minnesota Swarm
Sandy Charboneau-NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Raquel Torres-Garcia-NBA San Antonio Spurs
Alto Gary-NFL Houston Texans
Tamara Jenkins-MLS FC Dallas
Stacie Kinder-NFL Tennessee Titans
Ken Martin-USA Pro Cheerleaders
Brandii McCoy-NBA Charlotte Bobcats & ECHL Charlotte Checkers
Stephanie Jojokian-NFL Washington Redskins
Marla Viturello-AFL Philadelphia Soul & Philadelphia Pro Dancers
Shannon Kingsley-NFL Seattle Seahawks

Rutledge adds that “Our Convention continues to grow each year. Our sponsors such as the Line Up, Peavey hosiery, Satin Stitches, and Tech.Nitions, help make our event even more extraordinary each summer!”

The popular “Sideline Distraction Magazine” is a huge hit at the Convention. It features ‘Sideline Hotties’ from various teams and leagues in Professional Cheerleading. Last year, the coveted cover spot went to Crystal, from the NHL Tampa Bay Lightning Girls…who will it be this year? You’ll have to attend the P-R-O Convention to find out!
