“Today is the FC Dallas Dancers dance team auditions,” said Director of FC Dallas Dancers Tamara Jenkins. “We are looking for fantastic girls that have energy, charisma and can dance.”

At the Power House of Dance in Frisco dance team hopefuls are high kicking their way into auditions in hopes of dancing for one of the best soccer teams in the country. Highly decorated choreographer Roger Lee knows how stressful and nerve racking auditions can be.

“I am originally from Dallas but I have resided in Los Angeles for the passed 7 years,” said choreographer Roger Lee. “I have been on tour with Justin Timberlake. I have choreographed for Janet Jackson for her All For You tour and her HBO special which was nominated for an Emmy. I worked with PINK and Gwen Stefani. If you really want to perform and entertain don’t let your nerves get the best of you.”


Before the dancers could strut their stuff a lot of preparation is being put into getting ready for this audition.

“Attending as many prep classes as they offer,” said dancer Kristen Haulderbaum. “We do a lot of eating healthy and conditioning and we do have to worry about our hair and makeup.”

As the dancers finished their final preparations to impress the judges tension began to build. It was showtime!

“I am looking for the best and the brightest today,” said Jenkins.


The dancers brought energy and talent to the auditions and after a grueling day it was time to find out who made the team.

“Oh my gosh,” said dancer Crystal Flores. “They’re going to post the winners tomorrow on the FC Dallas website. That just kind of nerve racking so I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight.”

“So we’ll all be like at work checking the website,” said Holderbaum.

And Holderbaum did make the team. It’s an achievement this dancer’s proud of and thankful for. She says without the support of her family none of this is possible.

“When I found out it was more a big wave of excitement not just for me but for my whole family because they’ve been rooting for me for a long time to,” said Holderbaum. “I don’t know how much money they’ve spent on dance practices since the age of five.”

Now that the dance team is finalized Jenkins and her squad can focus on making the FC Dallas Dancers season better then ever.

“The fans are great and I love soccer,” said dancer Rebekah Leonard. “It’s just a great atmosphere. We’re going to have a very successful year.”

These FC Dallas Dancers will showcase their talent all season long at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco.
