DCC Alumni Spotlight – Robin Sindorf Kaspar
Robin Sindorf Kaspar, local to Kingsland, TX, defied the odds in chasing her dream of becoming a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. At age 18, she took a leap of faith when moving from a small Texas town to the big city of Dallas in pursuit of cheering for America’s Team.
Robin never took formal dance, but she was a cheerleader in high school. Obviously, she had a great performance quality, as she made the team and cheered for one year 1978-1979. While on the team, she also attended Bauder College for a degree in interior design. Fun fact, the wife of a Dallas Cowboys player, was one of Robin’s teacher.
Although Robin only cheered one year under the famous Suzanne Mitchell and Texie Waterman, she had countless opportunities while on the team including: a trip to Japan, which is a favorite memory that included parades and a football game with military, The Mirage Bowl, the DCC filmed a movie – The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders – Made for TV Movie on ABC, filmed a TV show – ABC’s 36 Most Beautiful Girls that kicked off Monday Night Football, made a TV commercial – Faberge Organic Shampoo, and performed at Super Bowl XIII.
Robin says the most valuable lesson she learned was to not give up. She fought for her spot on the team and received experiences she will remember for the rest of her life. The advice she gave me was: “If you try hard and give it your all you can do it...times will be stressful and your mental health is so important, so stay positive and keep striving.”
Robin’s achievements did not stop with the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. She went on to be the first female rodeo clown and later started her own personal training business. She also worked in church administration in Marble Falls, TX. Robin now works at a small church helping lead the children and youth ministry of about 40 students.
