The Dallas Cowboys introduced the Rhythm and Blue, a high-energy co-ed dance team and drum corps, in 2009. The Rhythm and Blue brings a refreshingly innovative, unique and exciting element to the Cowboys legendary game-day entertainment line-up. The talented group of men and women who make up "DCRB" entertain audiences from around the world as they enter the plazas of AT&T Stadium before each game. After every Cowboys score during the game, the Rhythm and Blue Dancers & Drumline dazzle fans with captivating celebration performances. The Rhythm and Blue Dancers were conceptualized under the direction of Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President/Chief Brand Officer Charlotte Jones. It is the first and only entertainment concept of its kind in the National Football League.
The Dallas Cowboys Rhythm and Blue is a two-part entertainment entity. The percussion troop drumline masters the rhythm and the dance team moves the spirit of Cowboys Nation true blue. Music from cutting edge drum cadences and dynamic routines featuring a strong level of breakdancing and hip-hop based movement combine to form an electrifying fan favorite!
