When the Saints go marching into the dome, the Saintsations cheerleaders will be with them every step of the way….but who will be in that number? The audition process begins soon. The Preliminary auditions will be held Sunday, April 13th at 9:00am at the Saints Practice Facility on Airline Highway. Candidates must be at 18 years of age on or by April 13, 2008.
In addition to performing at NFL Saints home football games, the Saintsations have traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan to visit our troops and were recognized by the Louisiana Legislature for their community service efforts. The team has appeared on the Dr. Phil show, and 2006 Comic Relief Live National Television show with Whoopi Goldberg, Robin Williams and Billy Crystal. They have also appeared in Sports Illustrated, Maxim magazine, FHM magazine and several national commercials. Team members have competed in the NFL nationally televised Cheerleading championship, appeared in events surrounding the NFL Super Bowl and competed against other NFL cheerleading teams at the Super Bowl Beach challenge.
The entire team was featured at the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. During the trip, the team performed and promoted the Saints and the State of Louisiana at various public and private events.
The Saintsations support community projects through the “Saintsations Inspiration Program.” The primary focus of the 2008 program is to promote positive initiatives geared toward women and children. They have worked hand-in-hand with Angel’s Place in New Orleans. This non-profit organization provides care and comfort for terminally ill children.
The Saintsations are one of the premier dance teams in the NFL. Incorporating high-energy routines with professionalism, this elite group has earned the reputation of being one of the most versatile and entertaining squads in the league. Their annual New Orleans Saintsations Swimsuit Calendar and the “behind-the-scenes” television shows about the making of the calendar have catapulted the team into regional celebrities.
In essence, this highly recognized and respected group of women serves as the goodwill ambassadors for the NFL and the New Orleans Saints organization. Team members perform at many exciting events and make numerous public speaking appearances throughout the world. Team members recently returned from a promotional trip Mexico City and London. During their visit, they spoke about the NFL and in particular Louisiana.
We are looking for dedicated young women who are physically fit, talented in dance/cheer, and are able to present themselves in a professional manner. Because the Saintsations are influential role models to the youth in our communities, we will select women that are committed to leading a healthy, productive lifestyle.
