If twerking professionally is your life’s ambition, here’s your chance: New Orleans bounce star Big Freedia is holding open auditions for her dance troupe this weekend.
Both male and female dancers who are at least 18 years old are invited to audition from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14 at Dance Quarter, 1719 Toledano St.
Professional training is not required but, presumably, an ability to energetically shake one’s rump is, given the routines Freedia’s dancers generally perform onstage.
The auditions will be filmed for possible inclusion in an upcoming episode of Freedia’s reality show, “Big Freedia Bounces Back,” on the Fuse network. The new season of what was formerly titled “Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce” will roll out this summer. It is the top-rated show on Fuse.
A press release from Fuse announcing this weekend's audition states, “No booty too small or too big.”
