Whether they are pumping up the crowd at U.S. Airways Center, participating in fundraisers and charity events, or best of all, cheering on our Phoenix Suns, it’s no doubt that the Phoenix Suns Dancers have taken purple and orange to new levels. But as of last week, we can add a new responsibility to the Suns Dancers' job description. World traveler?
That’s right! The Suns Dancers represented Planet Orange in Hong Kong! We caught up with the dancers at their first practice since returning to the desert to get the inside scoop on a trip the girls will never forget.
Phoenix Suns Dancer Coach Kari was thrilled to hear that a trip to Hong Kong was in the team’s near future. She randomly selected six lucky girls to fly to Hong Kong for NBA Madness, a promotional event organized by the NBA.
The excruciating 16-hour journey was well worth it as the dancers were greeted by a beautiful city filled with welcoming people. “It was an exciting experience because we had paparazzi surrounding our bus and security following us from the moment we landed,” said Sumer, a 3-year veteran dancer.
