It Takes Groove To Be A Pro Cheerleader

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Being a professional cheerleader takes more than just peppy spirit fingers, it takes some killer dance moves too.

That’s the word from Kelli Finglass, director of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, who says in order make the cut on their NFL cheer squad, you need pep in your step, rhythm, and groove.

Finglass explains, “We look for girls who can look good in our uniforms, learn the cheers, and stick our choreography. Girls with dance experience usually stand a better chance at making it than girls who only have high school cheer experience on their resumes.”

And while bustin’ a move is clearly a must, Finglass says physical and mental stamina are also crucial to being a pro cheerleader.

She adds, “These girls have to be ready to dance in the scorching Texas heat for four hours during football games while maintaining a good attitude and a smile. Strong minds and interpersonal skills are just as important as learning the cheers.”

Finglass conducts tryouts for some new Dallas cheerleaders when season two of CMT’s Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team premieres September 14.
