Moving Along

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 or email Taryn Carmichael, the Suns Dancers' manager, at [email protected]
