Ten of those years were spent competing with a dance company. I also participated in their professional performing company in high school, which gave performances at several business functions throughout the metroplex. I cherished going to dance conventions to compete with my company and collaborate with other choreographers. During my high school years, I also worked as a dance instructor at Top Hat, instructing elementary dancers in tap and ballet.”

Following high school, Kalina attended Dallas’s The Joffrey Ballet School to further her skills before joining the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.

Kalina said about how “as a little girl she knew she wanted to be a DCC:” in her bio.

“Being raised near the DCC was a great blessing for me! I was a Jr. DCC for many years and attended Camp DCC every summer. When I was a young child, I loved the shine of the famous costume and the opportunity to dance with pom poms, therefore I knew I wanted to be a DCC and watched and learned from them.”

As a result of DCC’s numerous events and initiatives, Kalina “began to see how they made a difference” and “[love] the organization even more.”

She has been hoping to join the team since 2004. Kalina responded, “I respect the organization, and I feel very protective of it:”

“I knew I loved the organization even more as I grew older and saw how they improved the lives of people through USO tours, hospital visits, nursing homes, waving to fans at games, and other activities. I am really protective of the DCC and I wanted to be a part of it because I respect it. Ever since I attended my first Camp DCC in 2004, it has been my dream.”

Kalina has described her teammates as “the most beautiful and supportive sisters” during her time on the team, and she believes she has “so many great experiences ahead of her:”

“I adore EVERY aspect of being a DCC member! The knowledge that I have a ton of wonderful experiences with this organization ahead of me, though, is what I adore most. I swear to treasure each and every one of them! AND I adore going on this adventure with 35 of my most stunning, encouraging sisters who inspire me to be my best self.”
