This unedited footage, taped by Dallas-based director Jim Ruddy for “Entertainment Tonight,” is of the 1996 Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders auditions. The women trying out for the cheerleading organization introduce themselves then perform a choreographed routine and get in a kickline to show off their high kicks. This footage captures scenes of two groups of auditionees performing for the judges, which are coincidentally a group of blondes and a group of brunettes, who one judge jokingly calls “Brunette Row”. Watch and see how you think the women perform!
