Knowing how little time they had before the first game, they should have just kept the team vets only so that everyone would know all the old dances and then they could have added a handful of new dances at rehearsal. Having the rookies learn a bunch of new dances in only three weeks and expecting them to keep them all straight in their heads is a lot to ask (especially since so many of the dances use the same repetitive movements which means it's easy to get mixed up - is this the dance where I do hip pumps twice and then toss my hair or is this the dance where I toss my hair and then do four hip pumps?).

It is easy for us to say things but we should know that they are in a new enviorment. Give them some time and I am sure most of them, maybe all, will be much better with 1 or 2 games

Agree to an extent. I am sure K&j had them practice so their “marking” of movements is inexcusable and there really is plenty of room.  Should they be up there no way no way, they could do what other teams are doing.

Ok theory time... I think the group leaders are Maddie and Ashlee, Lexie and Amber, Gina and Caroline, Tess and Rachel W. 

Lexie and Ashlee are confirmed to be leaders from instagram comments, and I think someone posted here earlier with all the lake stuff that Tess and Caroline are also confirmed.

The way the decks are set up makes me think that GL1 is in the middle end of their group and GL2 is on the outside edge. Videos have shown that Lexie and Maddie are next to each other in the middle of the line and Amber and Ashlee are on their respective ends. The other deck is more interesting because Caroline and Tess had to sit out. So Gina is in the middle but Caroline is gone leaving Victoria on the end and they moved Rachel W. to the middle to replace Tess for this game, and I don't know who was on that end for this game.

I'm interested to see if my theory is confirmed at the next game.

You are correct!

The rookies seem uneven like they forgot to rearrange them after cuts.

You don’t cut veterans so that you can have shaky rookies. Based on those videos it’s evident Judy and Kelli made rash decisions that they now have to live with. Not that they care, I’m sure.

Kelly could never give up on the girl that's a hot mess but has some story/look/girl next door vibe...

Loni, Jordan Chanley, Emily,  Morgan, Breelan, Paige, Kat...

Y’all should of seen my butt with my layers of masks I wish I would of taken a selfie lol 

I just read this really literally, thinking about how people bring those folding cushions to make bleachers more bearable*, and it took me several seconds and even more really bizarre mental images trying to figure out the logistics of this! Like, damn, my face is really small and my butt's pretty big, but I can't think of anyone for whom this would work 😉

*Yes, I also realized after that they don't have bleachers. The only football games I've ever been to were in high school/first year of college before I blissfully transferred to a school with no football, and only 'cause I'd sing the national anthem, and I'd cut outta there the minute I was done.

Training camp was what 3 weeks for these girls? Instead of 8-12?

(re: rookies only; quote didn't wanna quote...) 150% agree and I've been saying this all along.  It only makes sense.  Especially during a pandemic year.

(Quotes got conjoined, but I guess they're related).

While I think the entire training camp process was an unnecessary safety hazard, and I don't think there's a reason to have cheerleaders (or fans) at games right now, the primary reason to me (well, acceptable reason; pretend it wasn't to make a tv show) was to create continuity among seasons (and to finally make the squad somewhat more diverse).

There's no way to know whether the experience this year will affect retirement decisions, and, if so, in which direction: more women could decide to stick around an extra year to end with a [hopefully] more normal experience, or it may lead to more vets retiring than usual, and they're left with fewer upper vets and, with no rookies, have no rising second years. I hate to even say it, but there's no guarantee life will be much closer to normal next year. While I think the org could benefit from a complete overhaul of its culture, it's much harder to see that when you're inside it, and I'm sure they want a typically sized group of returnees for all of those reasons.

I do hope that continue to do an initial open call online or differently targeted first round again, as I think it opened it up to those who weren't specifically invited or couldn't afford to take the chance that they'd be the rare non-recruited talent to get noticed.

As for the practice time, I think the bigger challenge is that, to an extent, they're all point. How many times have we heard about how the point has the hardest job because she has no one to watch (in the most practiced and consistent dance they do)?

Now, they're (if I understand correctly) playing follow the leader, as the did in groups, but they're all, essentially, in the front.

Sure, they had less time--the vets less than the rookies, really-- to adjust to a total format change, but, the typical training camp length was absurd. Entire Broadway shows go from table reads to previews, with full sets, sound, lighting, and costumes, in far less time.

Any of the more complicated dances we've seen taught on the show by noteworthy choreographers may be incorporated by a small group in Show Group (I don't know; I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt), but they don't seem to perform anything nearly so complex or impressive as part of their game repertoire.

I will gladly be corrected by someone more in the know (or has...been to a game), but they seem to have a few core dances for different rhythms and then a variety of eight counts that get rearranged into various permutations to make up their "fifty" dances.

I think a first game will always have kinks, and this was, in many ways, new for everyone and probably had a lot of unknowns until the last minute, but I think it's more likely the vets' experience with OFTEN having to improvise around those unknowns (per "special performances"/last minute music or location changes shown on CMT unless those are created for drama, which is hella dumb because they always make the Cowboys organization look like a surprising clusterfuck of a company) that made most of them look more polished than many rookies.

I don't think vets, particularly the ones who had proven themselves over the years, should have been cut to make way for rookies, mind you, but I'm glad the process change (and/or their finally grasping the shitass optics) opened the door for a bit more diversity on the squad, and loath as I am to say anything positive about TPTB, I think bringing in new women was the right choice, lest we be left with only Barbiezon and Lisa (and probably Maddie) as senior vets in a year or two, with 30+ rookies.

They shud have just kept the 29 vets, held a mini-camp to rehearse and block the touchdown decks and gone with the smaller squad. Good for keeping everyone safe, not good if ur main concern is a reality TV series.

If those groups are right, Group 3 is overloaded with Rookies.  Conspiracy  theory:  that makes the people dancing next to VK look better by comparison . Certainly true in these videos.

Oh wow look guys, Victoria got 4 rookies in her group. Wonder why/how that is? (Yes, that's sarcasm)

And not to repeat too much of what other posters have said, but why oh why does it have to be up to a bunch of anonymous users on an internet forum to post this type of stuff? I really wish they would just let the rookies post something. Doesn't have to be a photo of them in the uniform. But like ya know ... SOMETHING to make it official. It's really crappy to make them wait.

And just to add some actual group analysis from me (😂), Group 4 has Rachel W. Elli, Dani AND Erin? That is one freaking attractive group IMO.

ETA: Oh and I forgot to say congratulations to Ashlee!! Great choice for second group leader!

Possible Theory: The Groups on Deck 2 (Tess & Gina's Groups) had rookies moved there from the other deck.

If all 4 girls sitting out of the game were in Tess & Gina's groups, that would leave 4 open spots on that deck. Could TPTB have moved 2 rookies into those spots (over vets) making Maddie & Lexie's deck the clean and highlighted area for Social Media. 

 

Side note: I think they put Group 1 & 3 together and Group 2 & 4 together.

Conversely, I always think it's so interesting when the lifelong studio dancers get to camp and just can not get it together fast enough.  Maddie, Erin, etc.  Erin got a freaking Barbie she was so good in her solo, but was a hot mess in camp.  She then totally focused on that style of dance, nailed it, and is a great DCC.  The power pom vs. classical training is fascinating to me.  Maybe I watch too much SYTYCD, but power pom is closest to hip hop when it comes to dancing, and you have SO MANY amazing self trained hip hop dancers.  (I know some like Joshua had some training in other backgrounds too, but it's amazing what sheer raw talent can do on their own, and how high they fly once they have better instruction too.)

Was it Jacie that said she had to unlearn the power pom style when she was getting back into the groove and trying out for the Rockettes?  

Pom isn’t like hip hop. I danced Pom competitively. There’s a lot of precision (it does kill your arms the strength you need to have) you’ve got to really punch your arms with all the force you have like someone’s face in there but got to stop it at the correct place again like there’s a barrier there otherwise it looks messy as hell you can’t quite be fluid my coach would always say “treat every move as though it’s a pose for a picture” all whilst being pretty performers and it’s always obvious when something’s out of place you’ve got to throw your all into every move and be fierce with every move. A lot of trained dancers struggle with getting rid of the fluid lyrical style, even hip hop has looseness to the move

When I told my sister about the group breakdown, she started questioning why Gina's group has 3 vets and 4 rookies while Tess's group has 5 vets and 4 rookies. She theorized that out of the 4 Lake Girls all but Tess are from Gina's group, because Tess's group (accounting for my previously posted deck theory) has added a rookie in place of Tess to alternate vet and rookie down their line. Where as Gina's group has 2 rookies between each of the 3 vets.

Completely agree you can't compare hip hop to pom there are so many different styles and techniques that can be in a hip hop routine. I do Pom competitively as well and you really need the strength and precision in your motions for it to look good. If you aren't it just looks like a mess and doesn't create the visual that's intended. I must add that competitive pom absolutely has a certain technique but to be honest the DCC pom isn't really it's own technique it's more jazz/modern dance with poms. Competitive pom and DCC pom use similar power but look completely different.

1)  This is a great year to change up choreo to thunderstruck...and change the song too for that matter.  ACDC sux!!  Change to baby I'm a star by Prince. Or something about a Ciwboy.  IMHO.

2) Still loathe Rachel W.  Would prefer savvy as a 2GL because she's not timid or fake or over the top humble.  A leader should be accepting of everyone. IMHO.

Are you guys not allowed back to training? The uk is a sh!t show with how they’ve dealt with Covid but our teams are allowed back. I retired last year but I’m also somehow brought out of retirement I can’t stay away 😂😂 I have major trouble with my spins though since having my boy I get motion sick and spotting makes it worse so I’m trying motion sickness bands.

I don’t agree, everyone on here has argued and other social media this is the year not to change things for a sense of familiarity so it’s not the time to be changing thunderstruck unless absolutely necessary like they have for the decks.

For context i'm from Victoria in Australia so in and out of lockdown heaps.  I'm with a university club so we don't start training until March. We got to be in the studio for tryouts and the week we were supposed to start was the week they shut down all activities. There was a maybe 3 week period where dance/cheer clubs could go back but unfortunately not us because of uni regulations. So we've only trained online all year and my club has made the call of not doing comps because we won't be prepared and safety of course. I did get to perform at our orientation week though so I had that at least!

Don't know where this would go, so sorry if this is too off-topic, but I'm genuinely curious, do you think girls/women legit need to have been lifelong dancers with years of training and experience on other NFL/cheerleading/dance teams in order to meet the demands of being a DCC? 

I know nothing about dance, but aside from good flexibility and some general dance technique, their moves seem pretty basic. I guess that background would especially come in handy when it comes to learning routines fast, but other things? Does someone need to have danced for 15 years to be a good DCC?

Excuse my ignorance; I've always wondered this. Would love any insight

I have very limited dance experience, so I’ve asked a similar question before in another thread, except I asked how come some girls who’ve dance on other professional teams struggle with DCC style/picking up choreo. The answers I got said apparently DCC learn a LOT of routines, I think it was 30+ in training camp, so that’s obviously challenging memory wise. Also while the moves may look basic apparently in many routines there’s moves on every count (which differs from a lot of other NFL/NBA teams) so the choreography can be hard to pick up and nail. So it sounds like a fair degree of experience or a lot of natural talent is usually necessary to make the team

Btw, I am not gonna hold someone questionable tweets from years ago hold against them. Let alone make nasty accusations about them. People make mistakes, people learn and grow. No point of hating on the. DCC is a job, not a competition who is the most perfect person in the world

Thank you, I really appreciate it! If you're interested in checking out some awesome dance and cheer then I'd have a look at Australian All Star Cheer Federation comps which you can go to or participate in if you find a club that participates.

Eclipse our highest level team from last year at nationals. This team also went to worlds in 2018 and many of these girls were meant to go to worlds this year with a non-uni club.

This is my team Nova. We're the next level down but both teams won our division last year.

As much crap as they have to do during the audition process, I’m totally unimpressed. These look like the same old basic sideline routines performed by any other NFL Cheer team. Maybe they really should’ve kept an all vet squad this year. This just looks like a huge distraction. I’d be pissed if I had those seats. 

Maybe they are not facing the fans - so they can look at the other groups and all do the same dance?  Don't get me wrong, I'd be pissed too if I spent good money to watch the game and couldn't see.

This shows the awkwardness.  No one is looking at the girls and then the girls are blocking views

And they are all doing a different dance move. And considering that looks to be Maddie and Lexi, not good!

At 1st I thought they were cheering for something that was happening during the game & not dancing (hence why they look off), but then it doesn't look like the fans are reacting to anything.  So yikes, they really do look bad.

Agreed. Or they could block off that whole section of seats then the girls could dance like now but not be right in the fans faces

Yeah, having someone's butt in my direct line of sight makes me uncomfortable.

Why in the ... hello?... are they doing the majority of those dances facing AWAY from the fans? This looks really dumb in my opinion... who are you "entertaining" ?  The end zone? 

Ummm I hope TPTB are reading this board bc wow, some improvements desperately need to be made! I understand it was the first time up on the TD decks, however, did they not start practicing up there prior? Crooked lines, everyone starting randomly, wrong moves & honestly what is the point who are they entertaining? They seem to be more of a hindrance up there blocking views of probably very expensive seats. They are doing more harm than good even performing, wow this is NOT the world class team they used to be...

Thank you! Even though some are not, I'm fully supportive of our measure's and am very grateful to be where I am even if it's difficult to deal with at times.

I feel like Alora-Rose and VK were competing to see who had better hair-ography dancing to one another.  It was very distracting and over the top!

To me VK's dancing just looks over the top and spastic.  It was so distracting and not in a good way.  I kept waiting for her to fall on her turns like she usually does.

In Savannah’s insta take over it showed them practicing on the decks before the game 🙊

 

 

@BulaKitty well done! Fab routines
