Want to dance for the Phoenix Suns? Auditions set for August 9

The Phoenix Suns will host auditions for the 2014-15 Suns Dancers beginning Saturday, August 9 at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale.

Suns fans possessing the skill and enthusiasm to become a member of the 2014-15 Suns Dancers are encouraged to attend prep classes being held throughout the summer at US Airways Center. A full schedule of prep classes is below.

Prep Class Schedule:

Thursday, June 19

Monday, June 30

Thursday, July 10

Tuesday, July 22

Monday, July 28

Saturday, August 2 (12:30 – 3 p.m., registration begins at 12 p.m.)

Wednesday, August 6

Each prep class will take candidates through a mock audition and will cover everything they need to know prior to 2014-15 Suns Dancers auditions in August. The class will consist of a group warm-up, a 30-minute workout, a sideline and choreographed routine taught by a current Suns Dancer or guest choreographer, a freestyle practice, and discussions covering fitness, nutrition, appearance, headshots and resume writing.

Candidates can register for prep classes at Suns.com/prep. The prep class is $25 per participant, with cash payment to be collected upon arrival. Candidates are required to bring their own dance attire and shoes with non-marking soles. Dancers must be 17 years or older to participate in a prep class (those who are 17 years old must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian).

All prep classes are from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m. (excluding the class on August 2), with registration beginning a half-hour prior to the start of the class. Participants should arrive on time as doors will close promptly at the start of each class.

Anyone looking for additional information regarding prep classes or the audition process should contact Kip Helt at khelt@suns.com.
