Arizona Rattlers Sidewinders Named AFL Dance Team of the Year

Sasha already posted about prep classes and auditions for the 2014 Arizona Rattlers Sidewinders, but I would be remiss If I didn’t mention that the Sidewinders were named the 2013 AFL Dance Team of the Year. (They also earned this honor in 2011).

From AZRattlers.com

The Arizona Rattlers Sidewinders dance team has been named as the 2013 Arena Football League Dance Team of the Year.

The Sidewinders put together stellar performances throughout the 2013 season. Highlighting the season were memorable routines such as special Mother’s Day and Father’s Day dances with the dancers’ parents and of course the fan favorite “Football Player” routine.

The Sidewinders are led by Director Angie Baker, who has coached the team for four seasons. She cheered professionally for six years with both the Sidewinders and the Arizona Cardinals, making one Super Bowl appearance and three ArenaBowl appearances, including one as the Dream Team Director.

“This is a huge honor for the team and a testament to the hard work we put in outside of games. We have outstanding leadership within our captains and veterans and a very talented group of rookies that made it happen. It’s been a textbook season and being recognized for something you love to do is icing on the cake,” said Baker. “Thank you to the AFL for this honor and a special thank you to owner Ron Shurts, President Joe Windham, and Head Coach Kevin Guy for providing the opportunity for the dancers to be part of the best sports organization around.”

Not only an integral part of the Rattlers game experience, the Sidewinders also spend time in the community continuing the strong efforts put forth by the organization as a whole to give back to Phoenix and the rest of the Valley.
