The Sundance Kid was the nickname of American outlaw Harry Longabaugh (1867-1908), in whose case it was taken from Sundance, Wyoming, the only town that ever jailed him, where he was incarcerated for eighteen months for horse thievery at the age of 15. The place name Sundance was taken from the sun dance ceremony practiced by several Native American tribes.As a given name this is borne by Australian physicist Sundance Bilson-Thompson. American professional beach volleyball players Kerri Walsh Jennings and Casey Jennings named their son Sundance in 2010.
