There are cheerleaders, and then there are Suns Dancers. And as much as you might think these ladies don't do much beside shake their well-toned bodies around on national television, there's quite a lot that goes into the gig. For example, they travel, make community appearances, study countless numbers of routines, and tan.
The lucky ladies who will make up the 2013-14 squad will begin their journeys on Saturday, August 17, when the Suns Dancer Auditions kick off at the Phoenix Convention Center. It's a grueling multi-day process that involves photo shoots, interviews, and dancing to vet out the very best of the bunch.
Auditions will be held from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at 142 East Washington Street. Parking is free at the US Airways Center Garage. For information about required attire and what to bring, visit www.nba.com/suns/2013-suns-dancers-auditions or email Taryn Carmichael, the Suns Dancers' manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
