Alumni Spotlights

I had the honor of interviewing Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Alumni, Shelly Bennett, who was a cheerleader from 1986 to 1988. Shelly talked about her time on the team like it was yesterday, and speaks so highly of her experiences and directors. While she had so many once in a lifetime opportunities on the team, she was most thankful for the lifelong friendships she made with her DCC sisters.  Shelly did not always know she wanted to audition to become one of America’s Sweethearts. In fact, she heard about

Jayne Phillip’s journey to becoming a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader was different from most individuals who have fulfilled the same dream. She had a very successful modeling career growing up, after signing with an agency in New Orleans at the age of 14. She also appeared in Aerosmith’s music video for “Rag Doll” filmed on Bourbon Street in 1988. She always aspired to be a dancer, but never had any formal dance training. She explained to me that she was unable to take dance classes growing up, so

Malia was born on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, on an US Air Force Base. Her parents, who served in the Air Force, relocated a few times before settling in Bedford, Texas. Malia attended school in the Bedford area before making the move to the west coast to attend Stanford University. While at Stanford, she danced as a member of the Dollies, traveling and performing at all types of sporting events. Malia was also a member of various performance arts groups while in school, training in hip

I had the most wonderful pleasure and honor of interviewing DCC alumni, Traci Tipping who loved her experience with the Cowboys. It was obvious that her heart and soul was put into her time as a member of the squad, and will forever be one of her most cherished memories. She embodies every quality about a DCC: strength, confidence, inner and outer beauty, and a heart of gold leaving everyone she encounters feeling inspired and loved.    Traci was raised in Killeen, TX. She was introduced to dance at

A Texas girl through-and-through, D’Laine Gutmann grew up in Beaumont, a small city in southeastern Texas. Beaumont is known as the ‘Spindletop Boomtown’ for the oil found at the Spindletop Hill which sparked an oil boom in Texas that continues today. Although it was less than a 5-hour drive to the old Texas Stadium in Irving, D’Laine had never attended a professional football game before. Little did she know that her first football game ever would be the opening home game of the Dallas Cowboys in 1991,

  Cassie Trammell Loftin was born to wear 15 stars and white Lucchese boots. A 5 year cheerleader, 2 year group leader, and 4 year Show Group member, Cassie left her mark on the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders organization and continues to share her talents today. Raised in Garland, Texas, Cassie is the daughter of Judy Trammell, who cheered 4 years for the Dallas Cowboys and has been  the Head Choreographer since 1991. It is no surprise that Cassie was introduced to dance and cheer at a young age. From

Rena grew up Grand Prairie Texas, where every year McDonald's would put out a poster of the Dallas Cowboys. She always made sure to stop by and get one! If you were really lucky, you were able to get one of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders. As a little girl, Rena idolized the DCC. Rena didn't start her dance training until her junior year of high school when she made the drill team. While dancing on the drill team, she knew she had found her passion! Rena went

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Alumni, Kenia Brown Hawkins, cheered for the Cowboys for two seasons from 1999-2001. Originally from a small town in Arkansas; she remembers going to a Dallas Cowboys game for the first time and seeing a video of the Cheerleaders popping up. She said that moment planted the seed for her future as a DCC. After finishing her undergrad, she went on to dance for the Arkansas Glacier Girls. While on the team, a girl from her town auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders that

Alice Williams Ellenburg was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader from 1990-1993 and 1999-2000. Yep, that's right, she made the team 2 different times. Alice is one of the few women that made the team, left to start her family, then returned to finish out her dream. Alice is one of the most genuine and uplifting people I have ever met. I am beyond grateful that I was able to spend time with her, and I believe we could have continued our conversation for a few hours if we

If you look throughout Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader history, there are very few women who audition and make the team at the age of 18, and there is good reason for that. Taking on the responsibility of being America’s Sweethearts is not for the faint of heart at any age, let alone a young lady navigating life after high school. However, Allison Hopkins, has been one of the select few who have managed this expectation and pressure flawlessly. Turning 18, 3 days prior auditions, and in an audition
