WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC?
I saw two of my teammates and one former pommie from Arizona Pomline go on and achieve their dreams of becoming a DCC. I also have been watching the DCC since my freshman year of college. Once my college coach started talking to me more about the DCC, I started to research them more and fell in love. Not only do I love the fact that the DCC get to dance and cheer on the best team in the NFL, I also love how they are very involved in community involvement. That drew me in even more.

My advice would be to start practicing and watching videos of DCC dancing! Pick up the DCC style, practice learning choreography quickly and start getting your stamina up! But most importantly, be confident in yourself! Confidence will allow you to be you, be relaxed and do the best you can!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC?
Not only do I look forward to improving myself and my performance each year, but I also look forward to doing community service and kids camps! I love working with kids and getting them active!
