The Manly Seabirds are the longest and the most recognized cheerleading squad in Australia’s NRL and, if you ask me, have that traditional glamorous and sexy NFL cheerleader look.  Well done, Manly Seabirds.

Former Melbourne Storm cheerleader Jinelle Esther landed the job of a lifetime when she was chosen for the iconic Dallas Cowboy cheer squad in March last year.

The 27-year-old from East Hawthorn, Victoria, had to audition with 500 others from around the world before being selected for the final 18, who progressed to training camp, where just 12 were selected for the team.

Since being chosen for the team, it has been a whirlwind adventure for the bubbly cheerleader, who said that she feels blessed to have the opportunity to do what she loves.

‘Becoming a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader has been an absolute dream come true,’ Jinelle told Daily Mail Australia.

‘I am so honoured to be one of 36 women chosen to represent such an iconic organization. It has been a lifelong goal, and it feels incredible to have this opportunity to do what I love most.’

Jinelle has been cheering since she was ten years old, starting out as a performer for her local Melbourne soccer club before cheering professionally in Australia for seven years.

‘For two of those years I danced for the National Basketball League, Melbourne Tigers, and then joined the National Rugby Leagues’ Melbourne Storm squad,’ said Jinelle.

‘This team quickly became my family for the next 5 years, where I gained life skills and experiences that have helped shape me to become a more well rounded, confident person.’

Being one of two Australians on the Dallas Cowboy cheer squad, along with Angela Rena, Jinelle said that Dallas can sometimes feel a long way from home.

‘I miss my family and friends everyday. The toughest part about being so far away is the time difference and not being able to communicate as easily with the people I love,’ Jinelle said.

‘I have also come to truly appreciate how beautiful Australia’s beaches are. I miss being able to enjoy some of the most incredible coast lines in the world!’

Despite her homesickness, Jinelle said that she has come to love living in the United States, and spending so much time with her ‘cheer family’ has meant she has experienced a side of American life she didn’t expect.

‘Driving on the other side of the road was definitely an interesting learning experience. A few unforced errors helped me quickly adapt to Texas traffic!’ Jinelle said.

‘I also really enjoy being immersed in a new and welcoming, southern culture. I appreciate the hospitality the locals have shown me, and have loved getting to experience new festivals and holidays such as Halloween, 4th of July, and Thanksgiving!’

It’s not all fun and games for the cheer squad though, who balance full-time jobs outside of their commitment to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

In order to be prepared for the games, shows, and appearances, the squad trains five nights a week for anywhere between three and eight hours a night to perfect routines, the kick line and the iconic jump splits.

Jinelle said that she finds exercise to be essential in her day.

‘Whether it’s going for a peaceful walk, or running a marathon, exercising helps you to feel balanced and healthy,’ Jinelle said.

‘In addition to being physically active, it is important to treat food as fuel and resist cravings for products filled with chemicals and preservatives that are toxic to your body,’ she said.

‘My favourite way to exercise is to take Zumba classes! It’s the perfect combination of cardio and toning, and the music is motivating and engages you in the routines.’

From The Leader

Sans Souci dancer Bianca Argyros, 22, made the recent semi-finals of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleader auditions.

Argyros traveled to Dallas, Texas, last month to try out for her dream job against 400 other hopefuls. She was chosen among the top 100 dancers but missed the final 40.

“Making it to the semi-finals for the world’s best team is a huge achievement for me and I’m so proud of myself for pursuing that dream,” she said.

“I will continue to audition for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and I hope to make the dream team one day.”

She cheers for St George Illawarra Dragons in the NRL rugby league competition and is a former cheerleader for Canterbury Bulldogs.

Argyros, who had studied at the Broadway Dance Centre in New York in 2011, wants to dance professionally in the US.

Queensland cheer hasn’t run out of puff just yet.

The passionate cheerleaders for the Broncos rugby league football club are gearing up for another season of pompoms and high kicks with auditions set for next week in the face of cuts by teams in other states.

Cheer managing director Hollie Bloch said cheer in Queensland was still strong.

“We’re still out there, definitely,” she said. “It’s a part of the club and they have been around for a really long time … it contributes to the game and the atmosphere and it’s great performance opportunity for the girls.”

She said the commitment and ability as professional dancers helped the Brisbane squad members, who perform at every home game, rise above other states.

“From what I’ve seen in Queensland, cheer is definitely alive, really popular and upcoming.”

Next Sunday’s auditions are in the face of cuts in other state teams with Canterbury demoting their cheerleaders while the Canberra Raiders are reviewing the entertainment all together.

“What we’re looking for is a joy while they perform.”

Cheerleader Marina Shah said she started cheerleading last year after a background in dance and loved performing to the crowd.

“It has been really fun, everyone is so supportive,” she said.

“I think we have a really strong team and this year will be one of the best.”

Cheerleader Angela De Righetti was in last season’s squad and said she loved the bond between the squad members.

Auditions for the new Bronco’s squad will be held on Sunday morning at the Mad Dance Studios on Adelaide St.
