Q:

What is the average salary for a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader?

A:

As of September 2014, the average salary for a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader was $150 per home game. Each cheerleader has the opportunity to earn extra money at paid performances.

Although $150 a week sounds like a small amount of money, most of the cheerleaders do it for the prestige. The job itself is very difficult to get and, once on the squad, a girl is only guaranteed one year on the team. Each girl must try out annually.

In order to audition, a girl must be at least 18 years old. She must be a high school graduate or have acquired her GED and be able to attend all rehearsals and games. Being a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader is not a full-time job.

During auditions, judges focus on personality, poise, dance technique, the applicant's figure, high kicks, splits and other factors. Once chosen, a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader will need to be able to attend two to five mandatory rehearsals per week until the season begins. Once football season starts, there is a set schedule of rehearsals held in the evenings, and rookies will need to attend extra weekend rehearsals. Extra money can be earned for rehearsals and promotional appearances at stores, restaurants and other locations, although some appearances, such as charitable events, are unpaid.
