The New Orleans Pelicans will hold auditions tomorrow morning for the 2014-15 Pelicans Dance Team inside the Pelicans Practice Facility at 5800 Airline Drive in Metairie.
Registration begins at 9:00 a.m. for ladies, ages 18 and up, who have prior dance experience. The team says that those who audition must be enthusiastic and committed to representing the Pelicans, both on and off the court. Dance team applicants should be in top physical condition and wear appropriate dance attire for the audition, which includes a half-top that shows midriff, hot shorts or trunks (no pants), dance or athletic shoes, flesh colored tights, and performance-ready hair and make-up (no ponytails). At registration, dancers must provide a resume that depicts any professional and dance experience, a recent 4x6 headshot, a copy of their high school diploma, valid photo identification, and a completed application form.
Following the first round of eliminations, the second round of auditions will begin at approximately noon.
The Pelicans dance team performs professionally-choreographed dance routines to a variety of music during home games, and make appearances at community and professional events throughout the year. In past seasons, the dance team has traveled to Spain, Germany, China and the Balkans to perform and represent New Orleans and the organization on an international stage.
