On April 21, the thousands of people in attendance at a Saturday professional football game in downtown Phoenix received a special treat: a performance by the Senior Steppers.

In what has become an annual tradition, the Senior Steppers, a 14-member group from the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, showed off their dance moves at an Arizona Rattlers indoor football game.
