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

Before becoming a DCC, Sasha danced for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings for four years, while attending the University of California, Davis. During her rookie year as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, she was told that she made the team right before taking the squad photo.

While Becky may have only spent one season as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, there is no doubting that she had a season packed full of amazing experiences and lasting memories.
