Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders are the National Football League cheerleading squad representing the Dallas Cowboys team.
In the fall of 1977, the Cowboys, together with the help of designer and photographer Bob Shaw, produced the first NFL cheerleader poster for the Dallas Cowboys. This achievement brought the team even more recognition on a national scale.
In October of 1977, Shaw wrote an article for Esquire magazine, which led to the squad being featured on two network television specials: NBC Rock-n-Roll Sports Classic and The Osmond Brothers Special on ABC.
Additionally, during that year, the DCC produced their very own one-hour special titled “The 36 Most Beautiful Girls in Texas,” which was broadcast on ABC before the start of the new season of Monday Night Football (which coincidentally was a game that the Cowboys hosted).
On January 14, 1979, the film that was developed specifically for television and titled The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders was broadcast. The show, which starred Bert Convy and Jane Seymour, garnered a proportion of the national television viewership that was equal to 48 percent.
How long can someone be a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader?
Cowboys supporters frequently believe that there are stringent requirements to audition for the DCC. In point of fact, there are not a lot of prerequisites to meet in order to participate. At the beginning of Day 1 of the auditions, you need to be at least 18 years old, although there is no upper age limit.
In addition, there is no regulation concerning either gender. There have been male competitors in the past, including one in the 2018 auditions.
In any given year, Round 1 could feature someone as young as an 18-year-old high school senior or as old as a grandmother.
