Alumni Spotlights

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader alumni, Brittany Evans, is one of the most upbeat, bubbly people I have had the chance to talk to. It was such an honor getting to interview her and hear about her four-year experience as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. From being Rookie of the Year her first year to being Veteran of the Year her final year, Brittany remains so thankful and humble about all of the incredible opportunities she got to be a part of. Brittany currently lives in Texas and is a

Courtney Sparks has had quite the success in the professional dance and theater world, even before she began her journey as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Being a DCC was something that she had been dreaming about since she was a little girl. Her interest first sparked in the organization at a young age in her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri. She watched the Jerry Lewis Telethon, which was filmed in Missouri, and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders would perform throughout the telethon. She remembers watching the show broadcasted

Kristin Depew may be originally from Delaware, but she considers herself a born and raised Dallas Cowboys fan! Having followed America’s Team since she moved to Texas at the young age of 5, Kristin always looked up to the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. After her father’s military service with the U.S. Air Force, she and her family traveled throughout the world for his new line of work. On the way back from one of their trips abroad to Australia, Kristin was star-struck when she realized that the Dallas

Tami Barber exemplifies how bright the Cowboys Star really shines. I had the honor of speaking with Tami about her time as a cheerleader from 1977 to 1980 and her adventures after retiring her boots.  Tami grew up as an only child from Nebraska and was involved in ballet and dance from the age of four. Two years after traveling to Arlington, Texas to attend an all- girl University, she decided to make her dream a reality and audition for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. She admitted that auditioning

I had the pleasure of interviewing Kim Bateman Bue, a Texas native who spent 3 incredible years as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. She bravely auditioned for the team as a senior in high school with no dance background or training. However, Kim was confident in her ability to perform, work hard, and be trained in the DCC style. Her confidence granted her a spot on the team after competing against 3000 hopeful applicants!  Kim spoke about some of her fondest and funniest memories as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. Her favorite memory was

There is a very short list of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader alumni who fans and teammates alike, know on a first name basis, and I am willing to bet all would agree that Jackie Bob may be at the top of that list. Known for making every single person in a room feel like the only person in the room, Jackie has this innate ability to make everyone around her want to be better, on and off the field. While her professional cheerleading journey did not start in

Elizabeth Porter was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 2004-2005. She was a very trained dancer from ages 3-18 where she danced in a studio in St. Louis, Missouri. She went to college and received a BFA in Dance from Oklahoma City University. Before becoming a DCC she was living in LA dancing professionally for a year.   She explained that she has so many good memories the year she was on the team. One of her favorites was when Misty Duncan and she would always try and give each other the hardest movie lines to guess which movie they were

Carista Ragan was one of the youngest on the squad at only nineteen years old when she cheered from 1988-1989. She even got to cheer with current director, Kelli and had Judy as her Assistant Choreographer! Carista grew up wanting to become a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. She was involved in beauty pageants and was a well-rounded dancer. She used to be painfully shy but pushed herself by participating in pageants and became the leader she is today. Now an attorney, Carista is the chief legal officer for

I had the pleasure of speaking with Shannon Hall Salter, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 1987-1990, and learning a little about her time on the team. She was a member of Show Group for her second and third season, as well as a 2nd group leader. She cheered with Kelli Finglass, the organization’s current director. I asked Shannon what it was like cheering with Kelli and she responded that she was a wonderful leader and an excellent veteran to follow. She has a photo of Kelli napping on

We all know how exciting and highly anticipated the Cowboy’s annual Thanksgiving halftime performance is each year, and if it weren’t for the 2000 performance by Jessica Simpson, Heather Pliler Gorton may have not ended up becoming one of America’s Sweethearts. Back in the early 2000s Heather was dancing backup for Jessica Simpson when she had the opportunity to teach the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders prior to their halftime performance. It was this fated experience that led Heather to move back to Dallas from Los Angeles and try
