2017 Tryouts and Training Camp: Candidates Included

Recommended Posts

I guess we can definitively say that Amy T, Bess, Danielle, Megan, and Melissa are retiring since they are not pictured below at last week's squad practice with the guest choreographer/dancer.  

Everyone else is "still in the picture" as they say.  (Though we do know that Jennifer K and Jessica are also retiring.)

I thought they were still required to go to practice even if they were retiring. Should we ask Shelly?

Eden and Sage?! It would be so cool if Mia's sisters auditioned and made the squad! 4 out of 5 sisters tried out, and maybe 3 sisters will have been DCCs. I rewatched season 11 and I didn't remember Sheridan at all. I hope she has a better run this year.

Yeah! They came to the prep class Mia taught. They could have just been there for support or maybe they are really interested. You never know!

Is that Tasha with the butt sweater?

Yes, that IS Tasha looking like a hard 40 year old. She is only 25 or 26. This was brought up yesterday in another thread...

???? Tasha doesn't look 40. She doesn't look 25, but as someone who is 36 and has extremely fit and hot friends who are 40, Tasha still looks younger than they do. Y'all crack me up!

If eden and sage made it, I believe they'd be second to the dreaded now banned (from dcc alumni events) scholz sisters to have three sisters on the squad. 

Do tell about the Scholz sisters!

LOL! Yeah, I would guess that Tasha was in her low 30s or so. She definitely doesn't look like she's a few years removed from college, but she doesn't look 40 either.

I don't see Megan there either ... the whole Jenna situation is just weird.  To retire and then not. 

Thank you for catching that @tobeyoungagain.  I have edited my post to include Megan among the women who we know will not be returning, and who did not attend the practice last week.

Is there a rule about having sisters on the team? There where sisters who auditioned in the past ; Minchews, Hoffman triplets,annoying twins from Las Vegas.

I think Kelli said each sister is judged on her own merit. In otherwords, each sister may or may not make it into TC or on the team. Season 4 Mia made it to TC and was selected for the squad, but her sister who tried out with her did not make it past Prelims.

This is like Kelli and Rainer Schneck are arguing about what color to do Danielle's hair again. Is it light brown with highlights? No, it's dark blonde with lowlights.

I don't know if she looks like a hard 30 or a great 40 but to me, she looks too aged to compete with the youth of the DCCs, and she doesn't have the charm of Julie Jacobs who had a more mature look, but still held her own.

Exactly, thank you. We are all saying the same thing, Tasha looks years older than she really is. 

And I will own that I have the unpopular opinion that she looks 40 to me. In another thread I meant that in THAT picture from above her face looks "hard" as in frozen or like a granite statue. Honestly, if you put Kelli Finglass next to Tasha in THAT picture...well, ummm...not to upset anyone but if you did not know Tasha I believe most people would guess her closer to Kelli's age than Heather Hamilton.

I think Tasha has that plastic thing going which makes her look older. It's such a fake look. Too tan, too much makeup, too blonde, too overdone. She's also very thin which also ages you. She lacks that fresh look.

Tasha looks older than 28, because she has such an artificial, over made up look. Same thing with Kathryn Dunn. That said, and admitting that Tasha irritates the crap out of me, I actually do like that they have a variety of ages on the team. I don't think Tasha looks rough, just older than she is.

I think Mia's sister made it to semis in season 3. I wonder what happened in season 4. 

Season 4 (2009) was when Mia made the squad and her sister auditioned with her as well but didn't make it to finals. I don't remember seeing either in season 3 (2008).

And Kelli with her "She's all shot up with botox" comment about Colby. Kitty ripped on Colby for her age too. So why not Tasha?! 

I think Colby overall looked her age, if not older. Colby definitely was older and looked like that. Tasha does stuff that ages her, but I think it's far different from the obvious old that Colby was.

Thank you, Thank you. Thank you. She looks fucking OLDER. And the pepto lips don't help. In fact, maybe the pepto lips are the culprit! "Look at my HIP, FRESH makeup trends that I follow!"  OK Vicki Gunvalson. Bottom line is MOST people commenting DON'T know Tasha. We see the impression. In fact, most people NOT commenting don't know her! Must we know her, to have an opinion?! And Kelli with her "She's all shot up with botox" comment about Colby. Kitty ripped on Colby for her age too. So why not Tasha?! To me, Tasha is as fresh as a Foghat concert (Kingpin quote).

Add Kelli Q to the list as well, neither she nor Tasha are exactly daisy fresh looking.

Hey, I like Foghat!  I think I'm going to go listen to Stone Blue now :)

In season 4 Mia said it was her first time to try out and her sisters third time. In season 3 during semi finals you can see Mia's sister sitting pretty close to the front, her hair style was a bit different.

1) If I met Tasha and she told me she was 35, I would believe her.

2) Mia’s sister is not a pretty girl. I don’t know what her dancing was like but Mia got the looks.  Mean of me, I know.

I like Kelli Q and don't care if she looks older.

Another Foghat fan here :)

Is Cristi Fisher's friend and Ice Angel teammate Carly is going to audition for the DCC as well?

I will say this, she is one hell of a dancer.  There was a clip where, when people were saying they couldn't take their eyes off Holly, Kelli was the one I couldn't stop watching, she really is good.

You're absolutely right about Mia getting the looks. IMO she's about 100 times more gorgeous than her sisters are. None of them are bad looking, but not on Mia's level. I will say that Eden appears to be a beautiful dancer from her instagram. Maybe a stronger technical dancer than Mia was her rookie year, but whether she has Mia's power is to be determined.

Mia's sister Sage is very pretty. There's a strong family resemblance with Mia. Eden is cute too, but she looks very young to me. I think Sage is 20 and Eden is 18. Or vice versa.

I have a friend auditioning that I'm attempting to help prepare. She went to Kelli's "prep class" the other night and we can confirm that 8 vets are leaving.

Some of these girls need to work on look/weight...It's alarming. I might be biased but my favorites are mainly the returning blondes ?? And Miranda Tims and marina on my secondary list.

Maybe it's the photo angle, but some of those girls' legs look awfully short.   And not DCC fit.

And theyre not "pretty plain Jane's" or slightly fluffy who are also amazing "technicians" and "powerhouses" as Kelli would say. Theyre not at the calibre looks or dance wise. A few of these early check in girls I see as prelim cuts.

Did a little snooping. Victoria Olsen mentioned in a comment she was just taking the class for fun and isn't trying out "again." (I guess she tried out last year). So I took her off my list!

I think I remember her being in the "spacey" group in last year's first episode. Maybe she's studio based and doesn't have experience in cheer or drill.

From the first list are a few AAIAs such as Cristi and Jenny. I could see raven reauditioning as well but i think she should take a quick juice  cleanse and lose a few pounds of water weight. I know Halee (Caila's roommate) is auditioning for broncos so we won't see her this year either.

Did you hear which eight are for sure retiring or just that there are eight? I'm not asking you to spill who if they want to keep it under wraps, just curious.

I'm letting people reveal in their own time. I have a feeling one or two might have their minds.

Wonder if Megan "I literally feel like a loved one just died because I didn't get to semis" is re-auditioning.

Megan Erickson is currently a skater/dancer on DSIG.
