DALLAS, Texas — Dreams do come true.

Amber Laiche, a 2017 Sandpoint High grad, has earned a spot on the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, one of the most iconic dance teams in the country.

The final 36-person roster was revealed during the season finale of the CMT TV show, "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team," this past Friday.

The show aired weekly since mid-September and followed the journeys of all 52 training camp candidates hoping to grab a spot on this year's team.

"I’ve danced my entire life and to officially say that I am a professional dancer means everything to me," Laiche wrote in a post to her Facebook page. "However, I did not get here alone. There are so many people, friends and family that played a huge role in getting me to where I am today."

Laiche was a member of the SHS dance team throughout her high school career, and served as team captain her senior year. The Bulldogs placed every year at the state dance championships during her tenure.

Laiche started dancing not long after learning how to walk. She was born and raised just outside of New Orleans and competed in every type of genre growing up; from jazz to lyrical to hip-hop. At age of 12, her family decided to move to Sandpoint.

Laiche graduated from the University of Montana this spring with a bachelor’s degree in dance and was a member of the UM dance team throughout her time in Missoula.

Laiche watched the CMT reality show growing up just like many other aspiring professional dancers, and now she's a member of the prestigious Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders.

"Being a part of this sisterhood is priceless and I will never take it for granted," she wrote in the Facebook post.
