So since the prep was online thus anyone in ant shape could have signed up, did anyone do this?  Would have been interested in who was teaching, Q & A portion etc.

Nope, I don't need to spend $30 to find out I can't dance 😛

I was going to sign up, got distracted and never went back.  Realized around 7 my time (PST) that the class was last night and just shrugged my shoulders.  Didn't have room in my small house anyways.  Besides, wasn't interested in being "featured" as one of those who didn't stand a chance because of weight.

I just posted over in the Auditions Speculation thread, but I signed up for the online prep class.  Due to technical difficulties, it was basically a live Q&A with Shelly B, Kelly, and Judy.  I had so much fun, though!  A few DCC were logged in and Ashlee encouraged people to try out, regardless of whether or not they felt their dance experience was lacking.

Hi everyone! I'm very new to the DCC world and just recently started watching the show. My question is, if a rookie makes show group, does that mean they automatically make the team? I've always wondered how that worked! Thanks everyone!

The explanation given on the show is that a rookie candidate who makes show group is considered an alternate on the show group who still needs to earn her spot on the team.

Welcome to DCC land and if you haven't already, be sure to check out Pluto TV to watch seasons 1-12 for free. You can watch on your computer, your phone, and/or your smart tv.  They just stream the show all day every day. https://pluto.tv/live-tv/dallas-cowboys-cheerleaders

Sunni Cranfill made show group in Season 3, but was then cut in training camp.

No.  If a rookie makes SG they still have to make the team and are considered an alternate on SG if they do.

Why did they change salons so many times?

Erm I think Rainer Schneck was their salon sponsor for about 12 years but he somehow stopped being their styling salon and they then used the current one since then ... I think. I maybe wrong ...

 

As for the boot company I thought they been using Lucchese since they started. thought it was always their cowboys boot that they used. Maybe not. I cant remember.

I thought they do keep the outfits they get from finals and the ones given out from training camp?

 

Maybe @ShellyB could help with the correct info on that

They keep the outfit given out at finals but not from TC. They have to return everything.

They talked about that on a podcast - practice outfits and old pairs of boots are used again.  They said that KaShara got an outfit worn by Kinzie and I think it was Daphne who got KaShara's old boots.

This the same old boots that Shelly or Kelly talked about years ago that they use only for TCC for field day and then they only get brand new ones when they actually make the squad? Really the reuse the practise outfits from TCC? They always seem to have new outfits in TCC every year.

Yes, Tangerine salon, and Marshall have been the DCC salon for a few years, and Rainer Schneck, and Atelliere (spelling) were the hair and makeover sponsors before that.   But Rainer has opened another salon, and moved on.     From what I've read, the salons really supply a lot of free services for the sponsorship, which I'm sure mean a lot of customers, and great publicity.    

Was Capezio once their boot sponsor?    Before Lucchese?

Several boot companies over the last 30 years...Dingo, Evening Star, Justin, Capezio, then Lucchese. There was also a company in between Dingo and Evening Star, but I can’t remember the name. 
 

When we first met Rainer, he worked at José Eber, our sponsor for 2 or 3 seasons. That salon was bought out by Premier Atelier, which Rainer remained with for several years. DCC was sponsored by Jean Philippe, also a former stylist with José Eber, for a season or two before moving to Premier Atelier. Rainer eventually left PA and opened his own, Pin Salon, but was never the sponsor. After 3-4 seasons with PA, DCC began a sponsorship with Tangerine. and before all of the salons, we were sponsored by Paul Neinast Salon. 
 

The only things the TCC keep are the outfits from finals and their Nikes. Everything else is returned.

I'm binge watching previous seasons and I noticed several times Kelly told the TCCs they are required to be camera-ready at all times, including when coming to practice.  Yet I see plenty of them coming in wearing shorts, sweats and very casual attire suitable for working out.  Does "camera-ready" only apply to hair and makeup for practices?

Oh, I didn't know that Jean Philippe was a former sponsor!  I used to work next to his salon on Lovers, his wife and kids were so sweet.  I used to get my nails done in his salon (my hairdresser was somewhere else), he ran a great salon.

Well they're going to change into their pink and blue practice outfits for TC, so I think of course they're just going to come in wearing their regular clothes. I don't think they have a problem with that, but they do have to have their hair and makeup done.

Here is an excerpt from the Audition FAQs.  I thought this was especially interesting since there was discussion of whether or not there was an "S" on "Cowboy(s)".

"Please work through the US consulate/embassy in your home country to obtain the proper visa for audition travel, and be mindful of extended timeline should you be selected as a Dallas Cowboy’s Cheerleader

YOU SHOULD BE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE PROOF OF LAWFUL ELIGIBILITY TO WORK IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA."

 

Was it Charlotte that asked that question of a candidate?

Where I live all fitness center and gym locker rooms are closed at the moment.  If Texas is following the same rules I don't see how a TCC could change into practice outfits at The Star.

Yep she asked Jordan Baum (or I think it was Jordan Baum but it was one of the 3 Jordan on the squad that year, if I remember correctly) that question and she replied with no theres no "s" on it.

 

Maybe the TCC's could just turn up in the practise wears? I mean on the show we see them just putting a top and trousers on top of the practise uniforms.

 

But I don;t know the Texas rules on easing lockdown rules I just think some of it was .... "bleugh" but each state to its own rules

It's crazy because there were judges and other people on the show that called them Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders over the years, even Jay. Lol who cares if I get it wrong, your judges have been saying it wrong too! That wouldn't fly, but I'm just saying. 

Yeah like Holly said, I guess they wear their practice outfits under their regular clothes. If they didn't, and they can't change in the locker room anymore, they can do that now. And to be fair the original poster was talking about past seasons before social distancing and things being closed.

I know and this is something I've said in other posts. The thing with Kelli, Judy and Charlotte is that they are NOT consistent with what they say and what they want and what they do. They let it slide with one person and then pick a problem with someone else over the same thing eg with the "s" in Dallas cowboys etc. This happens with every employer but Kelli, Judy and Charlotte are practically promoting double standards/favoritism on national tv, which they need to be careful with, but looks like they aren't really that careful to be honest and if we are judging by what we have seen from what was shown on tv and if they were to be reading this they better take that into consideration. Charlotte is consistantly telling everyone that it is a privilege to work for the Dallas Cowboys and yet the consistency of what they put out on national tv does not make it a privilege it makes them look stupid with the double standards (yes double standards happen with every company but how many have their double standards shown on national tv?)

To some extent I get it though. If they have an amazing dancer, or a stunner and she messes up on something small of course they are going to let it slide. She has all but one thing. If a girl is an okay dancer, kind of pretty but messes up the exact same thing she's just not worth putting the effort into. I'm pretty sure this happens at every audition everywhere, as well as every interview everywhere. Hell, if they have three tall, lean, blue eyed blonds with the same dance level, they're going to only take one, maybe two, and little things like how to say the company name is going to make the difference. 

I don't like it when it happens to someone I liked, but I get there is a hell of a lot more going on in the decision process than what we're shown. Personally, the decision making is fascinating to me so I'd rather see more of that and less of a lot of the other stuff, like dancer bios, workout sessions (which were more prominent in the earlier seasons). The only "fluff" I don't want to lose is the makeovers. I always love the makeovers.

Totally agree. During this pandemic I just think some of the "Kelli rules" needs to be relaxed a little, eg with illnesses. The girls shouldn't go into the studios if they are ill (despite Kelli's rule of going in even if you are ill) during this time. But instead, as I say, maybe have them connected during eg a conference/video call eg skype or something and that way they are safe at home and not spreading the illness but they could be doing that day's training there via video call. Yes it would be a little harder to costantly switch to the screen of video call to watch etc. But that would be a better solution during this pandemic. Better than nothing right? The sports world is extremely hard which ever sport you are in because there are always someone better than you but during this time leniency needs to be given. 

 

As for make overs, I'd hope and bet they will do this near the end of the tcc which I assume would prob be nearer Sept time if it is still a 2 month training camp thing for this year. But knowing Kelli she would prob still do them but at whatever time she did them in previous years.

Question:  On the application for DCC do they list stuff like where they go/went to college or anything like that? Watching Season 9 and it seems like because they featured Melissa Wallace that Kelli was impressed with her for studying Mechanical Engineering with a Pre Medical specialty and a minor in dance.

Side note:  The only other person I know that has gotten a Mechanical Engineering degree is my MALE cousin.

This may be a dumb question for someone (like me!) who has no dance background, but when the leaders of each group "call" the dance when the music comes on, does that mean they start counting when they hear the music or does it mean that they actually choose what dance the group will do?

When the music comes on the leader automatically starts up a dance and the ladies must follow she has abt 5 seconds
