Phoenix Suns Introduce an Additional Lineup of Dancers -- Kids

Before you start drooling over the possibility of another handful of toned, tanned, and semi-clothed dancers being added to the Suns' popular entertainment lineup -- allow the basketball team to introduce The SunDance Kids

Important to note: The group taking to the court this Friday will not be Butch Cassidy's entourage nor will it be the return of No. 32 with his gaggle of offspring (whew). Rather, the 17 new members of the Suns empire are "high-energy" dancers between the ages of 6 and 12. 

The SunDance Kids (hopefully just off orange and purple slushies) will perform this Friday when the Suns play the Portland Trail Blazers at US Airways Center and will continue to perform at one Phoenix Suns home game per month. 

No pressure for the the kid crew -- they just have to compete for attention with 22 older, bustier dancers as they bop along to the latest from Justin Bieber and greatest from Space Jam. If nothing else, they can probably share uniforms. 

Tip-off for this Friday's game is at 8:30 p.m. and dancers will sign copies of their new swimsuit calendar (no SunKid edition on this one) from 8 to 10 p.m. in the Casino Arizona Pavilion.
