Miami Dolphins Cheerleader Job Overview

The job of a Miami Dolphins cheerleader is to promote the Miami Dolphins football team. Dolphins cheerleaders do this by cheering for the team during home football games, appearing at local businesses for promotional events, and making appearances during team meetings and press conferences. Occasionally, the cheerleaders may also appear at fan or charity events in the greater Miami area. Every year, the squad poses for a swimsuit calendar.[1]

Since the Dolphins cheerleaders are required to maintain a certain physical "look", they must also have regular tanning sessions, beauty appointments, and hair salon visits. Dolphins cheerleaders are also required to maintain an athletic body type through the use of regular exercise and a lean diet.[2]

In order to be eligible for the Miami Dolphins cheerleading squad, all applicants must be at least 18 years of age. They must also have completed a high school education and received a diploma. Both requirements must be met by June 1 of the year in which the applicant auditions. A major part of the job of being a Miami Dolphin cheerleader is performing the squad's signature dance routines.
