Get to know Sarah Rose:
What does being a DBC mean to you?** Being a DBC means being part of an everlasting legacy. Representing the best team in the NFL and cheering along side the best fans in the NFL is a dream come true for me. I hope to make the amazingly talented, football-savvy, beautiful women who wore the chaps before me proud!
Who is your hero? My mom is my hero ... for always working hard, standing up for what's right, and never settling for less than what she deserves. Love you, mommy!
Tell us about the first concert you went to. My first concert was Christina Aguilera. I went with my mom when I was about 8. I don't think she'd done much research prior to the concert, because I don't think it was quite 8-year-old appropriate ... but regardless I'm still a huge fan to this day!
If there were a movie made about your life, which celebrity would you want to play you? I'd want Gabrielle Union to play me.
Who would play your parents? Probably Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.
What is your dream vacation destination? Bora Bora
Any hidden talents or tricks you can do? I can play four instruments!
When did you first start dancing/cheerleading? I started dancing when I was 5 years old.
In 10 years I see myself… Still kicking high in my chaps as a Denver Broncos Cheerleader! ... Or at least pretending from my living room while watching the Broncos play on my TV.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A dancer.
What advice would you give your younger self? Never give up on your dreams, everything happens for a reason, and stay true to who you are.
When did you get involved in organized cheer and dance? I started dancing professionally after I graduated college at 21 years old.
When did you realize you wanted to do it professionally? I knew I wanted to be a professional dancer ever since I was a little girl.
What is it about the Broncos that made you want to tryout for this team? I did my research on all professional sports dance teams in the US, looked up videos, asked around and realized that Broncos was the best team to dance for. The cheerleaders and even just the brand itself is so iconic and well known. So I auditioned for the best and hoped for the best!
Tell me about the audition process. I was a walking ball of stress during audition week! It was definitely the most difficult audition process I've ever had to do. Lots of information and choreography to retain, lots of competition because all of the finalists were beautiful girls and beautiful dancers. But I just had to go in every day with tunnel vision, focus on picking up the choreography and bringing my personality out when I danced!
Tell me about your calendar shoot experience in Mexico. The calendar shoot was amazing! Such a fun time with all of the girls supporting everyone else during their shoots. The veterans offered me lots of tips and advice, and our photography and cosmetology team was amazing and made us all look great. The whole experience was tons of fun and positive energy and an unforgettable experience.
What did it feel like when you found out you made the team? I didn't believe it at first. I was holding one of my best friend's hands, and when they called my number she squeezed my hand, and that's how I knew I'd heard correctly. It all happened so quickly and it was a lot to process, but the next morning I woke up elated!
What has been you favorite part of being a DBC so far? Getting to know my teammates. We're all so different and have such different personalities but we all get along so well; it's truly like gaining 25 other sisters.
What do you do outside of being a DBC? I teach Zumba Fitness, I'm an actress in "The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show" in downtown Denver, I practice Taekwondo, make jewelry, love to paint and have lots of family in the area that I love spending time with.
*Did you play any sports (other than dance) growing up? *I actually played basketball in high school instead of cheerleading. I was always much better at dancing though.
Do you have any hidden talents? I love playing the piano. I also paint often.
Tell me something that people don’t know about you. I am an aspiring astronomer! I'd love to work for NASA at some point in the future!
