Dispels a lot of myths
1 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

A documentary disguised as a reality show, this program follows select candidates as they wind their way through the audition, selection, and weeding-out process leading up to the first football game for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, the most famous pro cheerleading team in America (the Raiderettes a close second, followed by the Laker Girls).

The first thing that will strike you about the show is how open the girls are about their fears and concerns, and how critical the coaches and selection committee are in determining which candidates survive each round of cuts. When a dancer is called into the office for her evaluation, you will be right there with her, sweating it out as Lisa and Judy critique her performance and tell her what to focus on for next time, if there is a next time for her. There's a reason why the DCC are the best in the business, and this show tells you why.

Granted, its not like watching football try-outs or practices, but then it's not supposed to be. Its closer to watching auditions for a chorus line in a major Broadway production. DCC has a "look", just like the Rockettes, and every girl on the squad has to match that "look". Too tall, too big, too thin, too small and she's out. Only 5 years of dance training? She's out. A girl has minutes to learn a complete routine. If she forgets a step, she's out. Criteria are high and the chance for failure is abundant.

It's what being a pro-level dancer is all about.
