Brittney, who has been a Suns Dancer for the past four years, had one important word of advice who anyone who might be heading to the auditions.
"I recommend you be yourself and have fun -- confidence is a really big thing," she says.
Carmichael reiterated that the team looks for people who possess "a whole package," meaning talented performers who are also "outgoing, wonderful people inside and out."
