NEW ORLEANS (December 17, 2012) – Hundreds of patrons were in attendance at the Esplanade Mall on Saturday afternoon for the New Orleans VooDoo Doll Finals. The franchise is very pleased to announce that 17 young ladies have been selected to represent the franchise for the 2013 season as VooDoo Dolls.
“I’ve always heard that in these auditions they already know who they want before Finals, that was so not the case, it literally went down to the wire from day 1 up to Finals and was no easy task,” said VooDoo Doll Director Jasmine Martijn. “However, I narrowed it down to the best of the best across the board.”
All 17 ladies selected as 2013 VooDoo Dolls are from Louisiana. Of the 18 selected, 9 are veterans, having danced for the team last year or in years prior.
“I’m ecstatic with the Dolls I have selected, and I know they will rock,” added Martijn. “I can’t wait to get to work after the Holidays for the upcoming 2013 season.”
