Brooklyn Nets Dance Team Breaks It Down On The Court - My9 New Jersey

Brooklyn Nets Dance Team Breaks It Down On The Court

Posted: Updated:
Brooklyn, New York (My9NJ) - While many fans are focused on the Brooklyn Nets hard efforts during their playoff season, another team is gearing up to perform their hearts out for future home games. At the Barclay's Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, the Nets Dance team is putting everything on the table and perfecting their dance routines to put on an unforgettable performance throughout the teams basketball season. Two team members, who are native to New Jersey, sat down and talked about their efforts to engage the crowd every time the Nets play at the Barclays.

Amanda Robinson and Alexa Kobylarz, born in Piscataway and Brick, new Jersey respectfully, both come from ballet backgrounds and do everything they can in order to bring-it on the dance floor.

"This season, I have to say it’s been amazing. We've really come out the gate strong and it’s been so exciting," Kobylarz said.

The girls perform at almost every home game and they have an unlikely fan in hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. The New Jersey natives talked about their celebrity supporter and how they even got to perform for him and wife Beyonce!

"We’ve seen him sitting courtside him with Beyoncé, she’s fabulous sitting there, and you know, they’re here to see the entertainment, so it’s a really an awesome experience to perform in front of them," Robinson said.

With this dance team being only a part time endeavor, it’s wonderful to acknowledge the dedication these women have to perform for others while also doing the thing that they love. If you want to catch the Brooklyn Nets Dance team perform their awesome routines, you can see them at the next Barclay Center home game against Detroit.
