Transcript Spirit Lana Khawaja When most University of Houston students hear about the Cougar Dolls, they probably think of dingy, air-headed cheerleaders that just stand on the sidelines and scream out cute little phrases to get the crowd cheering for their team while doing a couple of flips. But this is far from the truth. "The Cougar Dolls do stand on the sidelines and cheer, but we don't do backflips or anything like that. We're more dancers than cheerleaders," said Brooks Woodard, Dolls captain. Its a very difficult process to become a Doll — many people are turned down every year. "We have tryouts every April, which are held by Diane Mayes, our director!' Woodard said. Another Doll, Shara Lehman said, "Unless someone is a returning Doll, each person trying out must choreograph their own solo that lasts anywhere between a minute to a minute and a half and pass that portion of the judging. The second part, which everyone has to do whether a newcomer or a returning Doll, (one) must learn and perform a dance routine which the Dolls usually perform at football games." This squad has 23 members that can be seen at football games and mens and womens basketball games. The members have a rigorous training routine of one hour every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. "We also train two hours before every game!' Woodard said. Summer 1996 was the first time the Dolls went to a private dance camp. "We found that it was more fun and extremely helpful because we invite choreographers and dancers to come and teach us new moves!' Woodard said. "We found that [the private camp] was more fun and extremely helpful because we invite choreographers and dancers to come and teach us new moves."
