Hey Cowboys Fans,
I am thrilled to be returning for a third season with the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers! I'm so excited to keep challenging myself and to see what else DCRB can accomplish this year.
I was born in Lubbock, Texas and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. I began dancing at the age of 18…it's never too late! In my off time, you can catch me taking dance fitness classes, hiking, or spending time with friends and family.
I'm extremely grateful to do what I love and to be a part of this trailblazing organization. Being around hardworking, motivated, and positive individuals is something I cherish deeply and thank God for every day!
DCRB is my home away from home and I can't wait to continue to spread joy to the community and Cowboys Nation this season!
Number of years on the team: This will be my third year with Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue!
Prior Dance/Entertainment Industry Experience: My prior dance experience consists of Latin styles including Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cumbia, and Reggaeton. I was also a part of the 2017-2018 Texas Revolution Dancers which was a pom team based in Frisco, TX.
Nicknames: Some nick names I go by are Dri, Adri, Nana, or as my niece and nephew like to call me, "Abanana!"

Advice to Youngsters: My advice to youngsters is to always keep an open mind and a fearless spirit! You never know where it may lead you.
My biggest role model is: My biggest role model is my mom! She inspires me to work hard, give back, and to be a positive influence on those around me. She was the first in her family of 8 to graduate college and go on to complete her Masters. She was an educator for FWISD for 20 years and now works for FWISD Administration. Her love for helping others is one of my favorite things about her…Love you, Mom!
What I enjoy most about being a DCRB Dancer is: My favorite part about being a DCRB Dancer is interacting with the fans on game day! There's nothing like the exchange of energy between the entertainment and the fans in the stadium. Everyone is family and excited to cheer on our Cowboys!
