About the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders:
Since their first Championship days in the 1970’s, the Dallas Cowboys have been called “America’s Team” and their famed cheerleaders are “America’s Sweethearts.” The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have been often imitated throughout the league, but never equaled in terms of beauty, style, athleticism and worldwide popularity. The blue and white star-spangled uniforms have unquestionably become an iconic symbol of America. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders perform for more than 80,000 fans at all home games at AT&T Stadium, travel to exotic locations on the annual Swimsuit Calendar Shoot, perform around the world on USO Tours for American military personnel and families and make countless appearances in film and television. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders made history as the first cheerleading squad to have a self-titled made for television movie, and are the only entity to have the honor of receiving the first-ever “Spirit of Hope” Award. They were also inducted into the VFW Hall of Fame, and awarded the American Legion’s Distinguished Service Medal in recognition of the many years of dedicated service to the men, women and families of American Armed Forces. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders continue to make cable television history on CMT with 12 seasons of “DCC: Making The Team” as its highest rated non-music show.
About Next Step Dance:
Michelle Stafford, Rita Allen and Russell Spearman opened Next Step Dance in Frisco, TX in August of 2008. There was no business plan, prospective, or financial proposal, just a desire to create a home for all dancers. Their goal was to provide professional training to both the experienced, talented dancer as well as the new, beginner dancer. With this in mind, they have created a state-of-the-art studio…a place to call home.
