The Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers are close to beginning the process of auditioning talented young women to join the only hip-hop dance team in the National Football League. Dancers will perform at all Dallas Cowboys home games, make personal appearances across the country and are positive role models and charitable ambassadors throughout the community.
The auditions get underway with the preliminaries at the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Studio in Valley Ranch on April 13th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The candidates will submit applications, register, and learn a short hip-hop dance routine. Afterwards, candidates will then introduce themselves and perform for the judging panel in groups of five. At the end of the performances, the judges’ selection for callbacks will be posted for those who will be returning for the semi-finals at Valley Ranch on April 20th. Following the judges selections, finalists will have a brief meeting with Director Jenny Durbin Smith to discuss the final audition process.
The finals auditions take place April 25th and are open to the public. The auditions will be the featured entertainment for the Dallas Cowboys Draft Day Party at Cowboys Stadium.
For those who are serious about becoming a part of the fifth edition of the popular dance team, prep classes are currently underway on Mondays at 8:30 p.m. and Fridays at 7 p.m. until Final Auditions. The classes take place at the Centre for Dance in Dallas.
