BROOKLYN - Hundreds of children came out to Long Island University Sunday to try out for the Brooklyn Nets Kids Dance Team.

More than 300 kids danced in front of the judges, hoping to be one of 15 selected to dance in front of large crowds at the Barclays Center starting this fall.

Celebrity choreographer Tanisha Scott, who worked on Drakes’ popular “Hotline Bling” music video, was among the judges selecting which of the talented youths would move on to the next round.

Prospective dancers told News 12 the process was nerve-racking, but say being a Brooklyn Nets dancer would mean the world to them.
