When I saw that Gina was one of the very few DCC bridesmaids of Miranda I knew she had to be a good person. Miranda always came off to me as the most genuine and kindhearted of the DCC.  

Miranda has 4 DCC bridesmaids- Caroline, Lexie and Molly as well (although molly and Lexie were “bridal party” members or something). And I agree Miranda seems lovely, and I like her raising awareness of important issues on instagram, in a similar vein to Hannah.

Whew--I worked so hard to get caught up on 8 million forum pages, and then I come back a week later and I had so much more catching up to do! Feeling accomplished for getting through it all.

Regarding that census video and multiple posters' surprise at Briana's appearance and how different she looked. I really don't want to go back to find the video in the original post here, but I have a theory: That doesn't look like Briana because...it's not Briana. I think it's Sydney, who does look kind of like Malena. As others point out, the woman in the video looks darker, taller, has more almond shaped eyes, and a differently shaped face. Again, I think all that's because it's not Bri.

Oh it’s going to happen. As long as she can stay in halfway decent shape she’ll be there at least The first half.

hinestly I think she’s improved a ton and looks great this year. If they’d just stopped trying to make fetch happen and let us organically like her there would be no problem

It’s Bri with a dif hairline and some botox to the forehead and eyes.

Well, whew again! I had to go back and watch and expand the video window to the whole screen to believe it was Bri. Her Botox eyebrows are kind of devastating in how much they change her gorgeous face. She is so freaking beautiful that I can't understand wanting to make herself look like someone else. But, I rarely understand that choice in young or beautiful people, even as I also know that I don't have to understand--folks can do what they want with their bodies, of course, but Bridget didn't need fillers and neither does Bri, and neither looked prettier to me with the injections.

I think they're for breast cancer awareness month.  The pink is very subtle because they look silvery white.  I assume in November they go back to the regular poms.

 

Thanks for the info. For a good cause, I'll tolerate them. :-)

Didn't she work as a Disney Princess?  I know Jasmine did (dancing on a disney cruise) but I was thinking she did as well.  Maybe not dancing on a cruise but some kind of princess.

By different hairline, do you mean she now has a bang? Because Brianna doesn’t have a wig like Kat and Ashlee-not that any choice is wrong. She has extensions. Theres no way for her to change her hairline. That’s her real hair on top...

Speaking of Kelli and the toxicity of her management style, Ifound this video really interesting. One of my all-time favorite dancers is Kathryn Morgan, a former soloist with both NYC & Miami. She took 8 years off because of her thyroid, got back into a professional company last year, and announced officially today that she has quit Miami. The primary reason was toxic management and choosing her own health over false promises. I was watching it and wanting every DCC/TCC/ dancer to see it. I hope you enjoy it, especially around minute 19.:

I covet her hair! 

I often wonder, I know it's a big deal to be point and all that, but I wonder how many of them really want to be. It's more work, more pressure, and for what? Being a DCC isn't really a long term career for most. It's murder on the body, maintaining the weight you had when you were 18, 19, 20 isn't healthy and it doesn't pay that well. I suppose "team leader" might look good on their resume. 

I don't know what kind of jobs those ladies have, but if you work a typical office job it might be hard to dedicate the time needed to be a group leader.  I know that they've said on the show before that group leaders lead practices with their groups and if needed, meet up with any rookies in their group that are struggling.

She and Misty Copeland are my two favorite ballerinas.  This story made me cry...especially at the end when she breaks down.  As someone who has struggled with thyroid issues, I understand what she's gone thru.  I am so happy she made the decision she did to leave and I wish her nothing but the best in her future endeavors!! (Kathryn Morgan and Friends ...I hope it takes off!!)

Ashlee wears a lace front wig. It looks really natural on her. Bri normally flat irons her hair and wears a few extensions in the back. If she switched over to a wig, I wouldn't blame her. All that heat is horrible for natural hair.

This is the hair stylists post about Briana, she says it is a traditional install which means a weave instead of a wig but that doesn't necessarily mean that it is her natural hair straightened, but more like a wig/extensions that are sewn ont. I am not black and not an expert so if I'm wrong someone please correct me. 

I think Briana just usually wears a lot less makeup than they put on her during cameos so thats why she looks different in that video 🤷‍♀️

Hey! a traditional sew in is usually the perimeter of her hair + a section up top (usually called leave-out) is left out to cover the tracks. Her hair is braided and the extensions are sewn onto the braids which can be covered with a net to prevent excess tension that will pull her hair out. Traditional installs are pretty good, as long as there isn't much heat being put on the leave out which can cause it to get ate up and broken off. 😇

also yea, Bri usually wears little to no makeup usually, but during cameos I've noticed she wears a lot more makeup. I can relate because on picture day for my team, I usually have a full beat, but regular game days and what not I really don't wear foundation and just opt for a natural kind of look.

so former TN-Brianna is (coming} back? I figured she would be ready to retire given she came in with a few professional seasons already. And last year's auditions, she seem to lose a little of her stamina.

If you mean Briana Baisden, she came back and made the team (3rd year vet now) I think she is around 30yo now so I wouldn't be surprised if she decides to retire after this season

yes. I'm doing fair keeping up with first names.. last names slip my mind - if I ever knew it in the first place...

usually is a personal fact or two that helps me remember who is who. In Briana's case, I had several trips during the time she was auditioning (the season she didn't make it and the next one) where I would pass very closely by the TN Titans Nissan stadium in Nashville.

Is there ONE link within the entire DCC forum, we can go to find out who retired , made it and who didn't come back from the 2019 squad ? Baically like a cheat-sheet 😀

This is week 5 of the NFL. While yes - the show isn't airing until next month ( prayerfully) , it would be nice to have quicker way to find out basic information to keep from re-hashing info, when someone has a question, about a particular dancer, who might have been discussed 50 pages ago .

There has got to be more to this old back story.  No one prior to Kelli or before Kelli took over as director had 5+ years or could dance equal to or better than ? 

I'm not putting down her dance skills, but surely there has got to be others in the world...

Or maybe she was the 1st one who didn't have to go through 1st & 2nd round (the way it is today).. 

I would think fellow squad mates during the time would be a little pissed... under the "2 sets of rules" clause.. I mean for someone to just show up the 1st day of training camp, after spending all spring eating lettuce and dancing until blisters...

It hasn't happened since Kelli and, from what I remember hearing, she's going to MAKE sure it never happens again, even for Victoria.  After all, Kelli wants to be the ONLY one with the honor of being able to actually walk onto the squad without having to go through auditions and not have to worry about being cut in Training Camp that year.

I'm sure that there's more to the back story of why she just got to walk onto the squad.  The only thing I can remember (and I'm not even sure it's correct) was that a lot of girls left that year and Kelli was promised she wouldn't have to audition or worry about being cut if she stayed one last year.  How true that is, I don't know. I'm sure Kelli would tell the story as that she was SO good that the director said she wouldn't have to re-audition because of it.  I wouldn't be surprised if other girls were upset that Kelli didn't have to audition because, depending on the facts of the story, she was given something that was never offered to others before or since (and is something that Kelli will likely NEVER offer anyone as long as she's the director).  As for dance skills/abilities, I doubt Kelli was the best one on the squad at that time or even close to it.  She was likely one of the better girls and is definitely a performer, but the best one out there that year, especially among the girls that were leaving or the girls coming in?  I don't think so.
