610 Stompers To Hold Try-Outs Aug. 13, 14
NEW ORLEANS – Audition notice: Calling ordinary men of New Orleans with extraordinary moves.
New Orleans’ beloved all-male dance team, the 610 Stompers, will hold its 2016 auditions on Saturday, August 13, and Sunday, August 14, 2016, at Harrah’s Casino on Canal St. Registration opens at 11:00 a.m. on both days and auditions will last until 7:00 pm. Auditions are open to all males over 21 years of age. The public is invited to watch the auditions for a $10 donation, while enjoying beer specials and endless entertainment.
All men who can learn a dance routine, add their own flavor, and show some panache are invited by the 610 Stompers to try out to be a member of the most notorious, yet ordinary, male dance group with extraordinary moves.
Round 1 auditions will comprise 50 dancers each day. Available spots are on a first come, first serve basis. Numbers 1-50 will be assigned upon arrival. If participants don't make it in that day, they are encouraged to try again the next day. Participants must register and audition on the same day. Once registered, all applicants will be given ample time to learn a new dance routine and must be able to answer a few questions by the Simon Cowell-esque judges. Chosen participants will be offered a slot in the callbacks on Sunday, August 21 from 11:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
The 610 Stompers are a 501C3. As such, the Stompers perform in dozens of events hosted by non-profits throughout the year. Therefore, other than showing off dancing skills, potential Stompers should strive to be altruistic and be ready to donate time to fans.
The 610 Stompers were born in the summer of 2009 as the Saints began their march to the Super Bowl. The 2016 “class” will be the eighth addition to the “most beloved male dance group in New Orleans…and the world!”
