Watch the Marching Poms “live” in this YouTube video from the 2016 Fiesta Bowl Parade!


History of the Sun City Poms:

The Poms started in 1979 by acting as cheerleaders for the Sun City Saints women’s softball team.  Today the group has evolved into two units:  a marching unit and a performing unit. The Fry’s Sun City Poms are highly energetic performers who demonstrate the organization’s dance standards. Some even do acrobatics!

Fry’s Sun City Poms come from all walks of life, and are more than entertainers.  They represent the fulfillment of life at any age.  Performing with the spunk and energy of their youths, these ladies are having the time of their lives while sharing positive aspects of retirement and aging, and shattering conventional images of “senior citizens.”


The Sun City Poms perform as part of the Glendale Glitters festivities. Dec 2015.

 Poms Requirements:

  1. Dancers and marchers in the Poms must be 55+ years old and hold a current RCSC card, or qualify as a participating guest.
  2. Dance skills of rhythm,  agility, poise, energy, and showmanship are required.  Acrobatics and baton twirling are a plus.

Two Units of Poms:

The Performing Poms unit entertains at some 50 shows a year. They appear at conventions, sporting events, community meetings, fundraisers, and retirement living centers and care facilities.   With excitement, agility, and grace, these women perform pyramids, pinwheels, while some even do splits, leg lifts, and headstands. Dances include modern jazz, country, and the internationally famous “Pom Routine.”

The Marching Poms unit participates in several parades a year, including the nationally televised Fiesta Bowl Parade in Phoenix. They perform a marching routine repeatedly throughout a parade route ranging from 1.5 miles to 3.0 miles. These gals strut their stuff with rhythm, energy, agility, and showmanship!
