CMTs Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team Season 2 on DVD.Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team is an American reality television series on Country Music Television. It is about the making of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders team. From the first programs airing in 2006, it features director and former Dallas Cowboy cheerleader Kelli McGonagill Finglass, choreographer Judy Trammel, and former Army drill sergeant Jay Johnson (who is the founder of "Boot Camp Fitness" and is responsible for the conditioning drills each girl must perform for testing). Over one thousand women auditioned and were put through the DCC system before being cut down to 36 performers for the first home football game of the Cowboys season.The show tracks the progression each candidate must follow in order to make the final roster and premiere on opening day at Texas Stadium (seasons 1-3) and going forward Cowboys Stadium; first the open audition "cattle call", then the 5-person audition "cut-down", then the personal interviews, uniform fittings, BMI testing, physical fitness testing, etiquette training, mock media interviews, calendar shoots, team and football knowledge testing, and grueling elite dance choreography that tests each girl's capacity to grasp dance combinations and perform the trademark kick-line routine for which DCC is known. Girls are judged by a hand-picked panel of experts and scoring is based on physical appearance, physical fitness, dance style, poise, grace, intelligence and showmanship.Once DCC training camp opens, the girls are put through a program of elite dance training and physical conditioning that is comparable to some professional sports training programs. If a girl is struggling, she is generally given a warning stating the nature of her difficulty and an opportunity to correct the shortcoming(s) before she is excused from the squad. Common reasons for being cut are (1) failure to correctly perform mandatory dance routines, (2) failure to display an elite level of dance skill, and (3) a lack of physical fitness and/or failing to meet body fat requirements. Candidates have also been cut due to past legal problems, morality issues, domestic distractions, lack of preparedness and poor time management skills.
