About the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders
The world-renowned Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have dazzled crowds around the globe since 1972. Introduced to Texas Stadium to add entertainment and excitement to the NFL game-day experience, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders quickly became an American icon, creating an international phenomenon that was quickly replicated throughout the NFL. The troupe's blend of glamour, beauty, showmanship, explosive dances featuring poms and their signature kickline has solidified the elite performance group's position as one of the most well-known symbols of pop culture. The ladies' signature star-spangled uniforms set the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders image and style apart and has brought international notoriety, that while often imitated, has yet to be duplicated in popularity and prominence. Nicknamed "America's Sweethearts," the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are ambassadors of good cheer across the country and serve as the Dallas Cowboys primary military outreach liaisons. With 75 international USO tours to their name, the Cheerleaders are recipients of three prestigious service awards for their work with the military – the Spirit of Bob Hope Award, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Award and the American Legion Award. Frequent guest performances on national television shows like Oprah, Saturday Night Live, American Idol and The View only accompany the troupe's own highly rated CMT reality show titled "Making The Team" – now in its ninth season.
