The Sun City Poms are celebrating their 40th anniversary in 2019, and will celebrate 2 p.m. Sunday, March 31 at the Mountain View auditorium, 9749 N. 107th Ave.
The Poms evolved from cheerleaders of the Sun City Saints Women’s softball team in 1979 to both a parade marching group plus performing dancers. The Sun City Poms are energetic performers who demonstrate the organization’s energy and rhythmic skills throughout the Valley.
Marching Poms entertain spectators with dance marches in approximately 10 parades throughout the season, including the Fiesta Bowl Parade. Performing Poms keep a busy schedule with about 30 shows a season, including local high schools, care centers, charity functions and community events, such as Glendale Glitters. They were recently featured on NBC Today Show with a segment titled “Meet the Poms, Pom Pom Squad Proves That Age is Just a Number.”
On May 10 the feature film “Poms,” a comedy starring Diane Keaton about a group of women who form a cheer leading squad at their retirement community, will hit theaters. The Sun City Poms say much of the storyline is based on the inspiration of their organization.
