Off Beat reports that Big Freedia is holding open auditions for dancers Saturday, Jan. 14 at Dance Quarter (1719 Toledano St.) from 2:30-6:30 p.m. Dancers, male and female, must be 18 years or older to audition.

Freedia can be seen in the Fuse TV show “Big Freedia Bounces Back,” which was formally known as “Big Freedia Queen of Bounce.”

The show is scheduled to return to Fuse this summer. In Season five, she battled anti-Twerkin’ laws in Mississippi and pleading guilty to the felony theft of nearly $35,000 in Section 8 housing vouchers. Season six will deal with Freedia continuing to move forward in her career and life.

The performer is well-known for her shows on the Coast and in Hattiesburg.
