2012 New Orleans VooDoo Doll Team Set; All 20 Dolls From Louisiana

NEW ORLEANS â€“ Over 225 patrons were in attendance at Mardi Gras World on Sunday afternoon for the New Orleans VooDoo Doll Finals, and the franchise is pleased to announce that 20 young ladies have been selected to represent the organization for the 2012 season as VooDoo Dolls.

   

“It was very, very hard to trim from 30 to 20.  I really wish that I could have kept them all,” said Tamica Lee-Smith, VooDoo Doll Director.  “I’m very happy with the 20 ladies that were selected, and feel that we have a really solid group of dancers.”   

   

All 20 young ladies selected as 2012 VooDoo Dolls are from Louisiana, and from New Orleans or the Greater New Orleans Area.  Of the 20 selected, 9 are veterans, having danced for the team last season or in years prior.  

“I’m glad that I was not a judge,” added Lee-Smith.  “The judges had their work cut out for them, and all of them stated how tough it was to get to the final 20.  I truly encourage those that didn’t make it to tryout next year.”

Nicole from New Orleans

Gia from Slidell
