About Rhythm & Blue

The Dallas Cowboys introduced the Rhythm and Blue in 2009, a high-energy co-ed hip-hop dance team and drum corps. The Rhythm and Blue brings an innovative, unique  and exciting element to the Cowboys legendary game-day entertainment line-up. Audiences have been entertained by the talented group of men and women upon entering the plazas of AT&T Stadium before each game. After every Cowboys' score during the game, the Rhythm and Blue Drumline dazzle fans with thunderous celebration performances. The Rhythm and Blue Dancers, presented by Miller Lite, were conceptualized under the direction of Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President of Brand Management Charlotte Anderson and is the first and only entertainment concept of its kind in the National Football League.
