I don't know Maddie, and have no insider information on this, but I really don't think there's any way she's sticking around for a 6th year.

If there isn’t a Pro Bowl this year, she may hang around for another year. I personally hope she retires.

I wondering if they are taking individual photos of the girls in their squad position and then going to photoshop it all together since they can't do a normal squad photo.

Some of these poses are what you see with the squad photo.

I think you are exactly right! There are some REALLY talented tech people out there who can seamlessly Photoshop all the girls in together for a nice group photo and noone could tell.

I really think Victoria did well! Honestly, out of the 5 we could see, my eye was drawn to her. If I have the order right,  Madeline Molloy was totally on her own program at several points! Eek!

First time I have something nice to say about VK. The other girls were late in picking up each dance and very fidgety in between dances. VK was the first on her end to begin the dances and stood very still and in position between dances. Other than that, still prefer her in a mask.

As much as I hate to say it, I have to give credit where it's due. If the squad photo comes out and we can hardly tell the difference, I'll be very impressed. However, one good idea doesn't make up for a bunch of bad ones.

Doesn’t judy usually do a lot of the photo choosing for calendars and especially for group photo?

When they have gone behind the calendar shoot, it was K&J, the photographers - that's what they showed in season 7.  Judy usually did the blocking for the group shot, but I can't see Kelli not having a hand in picking the final pics.

You know what can be done with the right person using just the right apps and programs.

Besides, if K&J were too picky, certain vets would still be on the squad

All I am saying is that it could very easily go wrong. It would explain why Kat is on her knees tho

Photographer here! Composites really aren’t that hard if you know how to do them. As long as they got good, clean poses of each of the girls (I’m sure they have MULTIPLE), it’s really just a matter of inserting the “person” and moving them around to symmetrical placement. Each individual cheerleader would be a separate layer, so it’s easy to move any of them as needed just as if they are standing there taking the actual photo. 

The Kardashians do it for their Christmas card every year!

My prediction is that Kat has jumped from the back row to (most likely) the second row - judging from her pose and looking at last years squad photo. We might see Ashlee in almost the same spot as last year.

Hahahahaha, OF COURSE the girl who didn't have enough core strength to do one controlled high kick was Victoria!

Why am I not surprised that Victoria STILL cannot kick? One would think that, after at least a year on a squad where kick technique is SO important to Kelli, that Victoria STILL cannot kick.  I guess she hasn't been shown the correct technique or has built up up ANY sort of proper dance technique in the time she was on the squad.

On 9/22/2020 at 6:39 AM, TB12 said:

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...

Not only are the touchdown decks not exactly the safest place for the girls (but we've already heard that Kelli doesn't care one whit about the girls' safety), but they're blocking the view of the fans, which are the main reason and funding source for the team.  While it would suck for the girls to not be able to dance, there are better (and safer) places for them to dance.  I would be pissed if I was one of the fans in those seats and I couldn't see the really game because of the cheerleaders being in the way the entire time.

On 9/22/2020 at 7:05 AM, rl27rl said:

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.

Victoria did look better dancing, but she also looked like she was throwing herself off BECAUSE she was so over-the-top and exaggerating the moves more then she had to.  If she had learned control and precision, I would have been impressed, but she hasn't and I'm not.  I'd almost say that she looks so good because the rookies next to her were so bad.

On 9/22/2020 at 8:12 AM, go4luca said:

Vic dances heavy.  She always has.  She really needs to work on and develop, her core strength.

Yeah, that obviously hasn't changed despite being in Training Camp three times and on the team going on two years.  One would think she would have learned something besides the dances by now, but obviously not.

On 9/22/2020 at 8:37 AM, Jazzhands said:

I agree with this.  Improving her core strength would significantly improve her dancing overall, especially in her preferred lyrical style. 

That said, I thought she looked good yesterday.  There was one kick I noticed that wasn’t great, but I’ve also heard that those decks are really slippery and they’re not used to dancing on them, so she gets a pass from me on that.  I didn’t realize immediately who it was, but I knew it was a veteran.  I thought she looked strong, sharp, confident, and fun to watch — far better than the two rookies next to her and the brunette vet who was the next down the line.  

I thought she was a mess her first season trying out and improved enough to make the team last year but in the bottom half of the group, but I was impressed by the clips from the game that were posted here.  She’s a tall, leggy East Texas blonde with big boobs and a big smile, and her dancing has noticeably improved.  I can’t see her joining the Rockettes or walking the runways in Milan, but selling tons of sideline calendars and posters in her DCC uniform?  Absolutely. She’s basically the DCC Barbie come to life. 

Yes, with the right makeup and hair (which would HAVE to be done by someone else because she doesn't know how to do itself) and actually told/shown how to pose and smile, she would do rather well, but, left to her own devices without the help, she would be her usual over-the-top self.  Granted, she's taken some very pretty pictures as seen on her Instagram so I would hope she would go that route instead of the cheap plastic doll look she often sports.

On 9/22/2020 at 9:05 AM, Lexusprincess said:

I feel for Rachel A.  She should have got a second group leader position. The pod cast in the bubble I thought Rachel A was very well spoken. her dancing has really improved over the years, and she was captain of her squad in college.  She's in her 4th year.  Carolyn and Amber are off traveling during Labor Day weekend.  One gets benched, the other dances, but Rachel A who stays home is not a second leader.  go figure that one.

I also have no problem they did not go with an all vet squad.  Everyone going thru this awful year had hopes things would get better.  Meredith and Lily and Brennan( I like them all I just always saw them as a risk getting cut)  to an extent should not have gotten a pass because they were vets.  If you barely make the team, every year you are going to be at risk.  I like some turnover especially since I believe there is more to life than being a DCC.  I'm still unhappy over Hannah but know that attitude affects lots of peoples jobs and it goes back to she could have opted out of a year.

As to VK, she looks good in her uniform, danced strong, and looks like a vet.  Alora looked like a hot mess but the first game is always rough. These girls had less time in camp and are dancing on what people say is a slick surface.  

I think Rachel A should have gotten a spot over Rachel W., but have we seen or heard anything about either Rachel's leadership potential or is Kelli just wanting to put Rachel W in a position where her looks and credentials could benefit the team the most?  As for Brennan, I don't think she BARELY made the squad every year.  She was solid all three years she auditioned and was a solid blender while she was on the squad.  Christina and several other girls were weaker performers and, if rumors are true several other girls should not have made the squad in the first place, so Brennan's cut (and Hannah's), to me, was simply a matter of Kelli's need for drama and a television show.  Meredith was the one that barely made it and only because she was Kelli's girl-crush.  Victoria does look stronger dancing, but she's still dancing too big and throwing herself off some of the moves which makes her look sloppy.  Being next to two rookies who struggled helps her look better though.

On 9/22/2020 at 4:55 PM, Carnival Girl said:

In my opinion the only reason they held tryouts was to make a TV show. There was no other reason to hold TC in a global pandemic. Kelli & Charlottes greed for money and fame took over. They should have gone with the vets and called it a year. 

Now, it seems Kelli wants her face in front of the camera and her name everywhere she can instead of putting together the best team possible.  She was (and still is) willing to put the girls' safety at risk to put a show together this year.  It seems that the amount of time they actually show the girls doing whatever has decreased and Kelli's on-screen time has increased over the years.  It's almost as if she's said that "I'm the important one here, not them (except for Victoria).  Show more of ME instead of them."

Taylor seems lovely and really cares about her kids. She seems to be a good role model in DCC and while not a light your world on fire dancer is a decent blender, which you need some of on the team, and good spokesperson.

I agree, she seems genuine and funny, and seems really passionate about teaching. Would be tough being both a teacher and DCC. I remember in her panel interview she and others were crying about loved ones who had died and she wiped her eyes and said jokingly “Neil, got any jokes for us?”. I really admired her ability to be witty even when upset and bounce back despite going through extremely challenging times.

Victoria's mistake with that kick was not due to the decks being slippery. It's completely due to her lack of core strength combined with the bad technique she uses to make up for lack of said core strength. When you do a high kick, your entire torso should stay upright from the top of your head to bottom of your hips. If you look at someone doing a proper high kick from the side, the ONLY thing that moves is the leg. For once, all the Barbie references are apropos because if you held a Barbie doll and just raised her leg, that is exactly what a human dancer should look like when doing a high kick.

But what Victoria did was hunch her upper body over instead of engaging her core to stay upright. That is what caused her supporting leg to be off balance. If she had used proper technique, then her foot would have been in a straight line directly underneath her hips, shoulders, and head. But because she wasn't using core strength and correct technique, she pulled herself off balance. Her shoulders were forward, as was her supporting foot (which should have been right underneath her hips) and that's what caused her to be off balance. It had nothing to do with the deck. It's classic bad kick technique.

As a non-dancer, I really appreciated this detailed explanation. Thanks!!

I just saw the dcc stories and they proved my point regarding masks. There’s no reason to have them dance for hours in these masks (do they even get to change them out on game day??) when they are standing right next to each other for cameo day without wearing masks and in a studio, which most probably isn’t an open space.

Yup. For my daughter's Volleyball team, they took a group shot with masks on and then took individual shots without masks. The final product is a seamless shot. Definitely can be done.

Ummm why are they rewarding Kat with such a prominent place in the squad photo, if that's the intent with her on her knees... If she is fraternizing with a player and a mediocre dancer at best but oh okay she's pretty so sure put her up front regardless that she's making a mockery of your "world class" organization...

She used a country themed filter and used the word y’all when she got her TX license. I can only speak for myself, but I found it silly, not offensive. Many Texans will happily play on the country girl stereotype when it suits.  (I say as I drive a big truck and wear boots that have only seen farms and ranches for short visits.)

At worst I found it worth an eye roll, and there are much bigger fish to fry. I tend to like most people, but Kat is someone I would happily catch up with over lunch once every month or two and call it a day.

FOR REAL. My paternal side of the family is from rural western NC, and it’s not any better or worse than anything I’ve seen in Texas. Or any other state for that matter. 
 

I don’t know why I found this post more dumb than offensive...as someone who has experienced racism based on stereotypes, you’d think Kat would be more self aware about applying stereotypes on others.  Especially with much bigger things happening in the US right now.
