What is so great about being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, besides everything? Let’s see, you get to go to every game free, even the sold out ones. You not only perform at football games, as a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader you will get to perform at baseball and basketball games, as well as hockey games. As a cheerleader, you will get to go on world tours with the USO and entertain our soldiers. You will also go to some pretty exotic places when they shoot pictures for the calendars. The Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders will shoot the pictures for the 2019 calendar in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico, and Riviera Nayarit, Mexico is a beautiful place! You will work with senior citizens and the kids at the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader camp. This is a camp for junior cheerleaders. Being a cheerleader is not all glamour though, it is hard work; as you never stop training in vocals and dance.
The preliminary 2018 auditions are on Saturday, May 10th, and the semi-final auditions are the following day, on May 11th. There will be panel interviews for all finalists on Friday, May 23rd. The interviews are followed by the dance finals on May 24th.
There are some requirements other than being able to dance and cheer perfectly though. You must be 18 years old to be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader. You must also live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and be able to attend every practice and rehearsal. You must also have a high school diploma or G.E.D. you must also be willing to commit to one year. You must have a full time or part time job, or be in college. I hear that being a full-time homemaker and mommy counts as a full-time job.
In order to participate in the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader tryouts, you must complete the application which can be done online. Follow this link to the online application. You must complete a release form and waiver as well. You can submit your DCC application via the number which is provided on the website. Because there is a $25 registration fee that must be paid with the submitted application, along with a current photo, I would suggest emailing the application to the address provided. The cheerleader tryout auditions are held in the Texas Stadium. Go to the Stadium Club which is located at Gate 1. Park in the Gate 1 parking lot, but make sure you do not park in a reserved spot. Go in through the Ticket Office doors which are located on the right side. Have your passport or driver’s license with you for identification. Click here for stadium map.
There will be over 600 people attending the cheerleader tryouts, and some of those will be the Dallas Cheerleaders from the last season. Remember, the panel that makes the decisions is looking for perfection. Bring your best game… or stay home.
