Trick roping and music make the opening and finale of the Rhinestone Roper Show. The show opens with Dan singing to tape music while he simultaneously varies the size of his loop; executing butterflies and rollovers, ocean waves, and dances in and out of his wedding ring loop. Then he skillfully performs flat loops, dog trots, wedding rings, body juggles, hand shakes and lift-ons.
During the shows finale, Dan ropes to familiar cowboy theme songs as he performs every rope trick that most people can imagine plus a few that they cannot. He performs one and two rope routines and use ropes as short as 7 feet long and as long as 60 feet long.
