The Phoenix Suns Dancers are hosting an open auditions on Saturday, August 9, for the 2014-15 season. Leading up to the auditions, the Suns Dancers will host a series of optional but highly recommended prep classes to teach interested performers a variety of dance routines for the big day.

Each class will feature a group warm-up, 30-minute cardio workout, a sideline routine, a timeout routine, demos of what to wear on audition day, and an overview of what judges will be looking for including headshots, résumés, and audition criteria.
