Auditions for the NETS Dancers to be Held Saturday, June 19 at City Center Studios in Manhattan
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Auditions for the 2010-11 Nets Dancers will be held at New York City Center Studios, 130 W. 56th St. in Manhattan, on Saturday, June 19 at noon. Registration begins at 11 a.m. and all participants must arrive by noon.
The NETS Dancers auditions are presented by Sensible Portions.
Dancers who are selected to the squad will perform at NETS home games and represent the NETS on national and local television, in print media, and at events throughout the Metropolitan area and abroad.
The NETS are seeking dancers ages 18 and over, with at least eight years of technical dance training. Tumbling skills are a plus, but not required. Dancers should wear fitted apparel, non-marking sneakers or dance shoes, and come with performance-ready hair and makeup. Auditions for callbacks will be held the evening of Monday, June 21 at the PNY Center in East Rutherford, NJ.
Final audition choreography will be taught by Luam, a long-time faculty member of Broadway Dance Center in Manhattan and Monsters of Hip-Hop. Early in her career Luam danced for recording artists such as Ludacris, Kelis, Kanye West, Kevin Lyttle, and Ashanti. She has since choreographed commercial campaigns for Nair, Puma, MTV, Mastercard, and As The World Turns, and for recording artists such as Sophia Fresh/Tpain, Joe Buddens, Ciara, Mashonda, Kanye West, John Legend, Nelly Furtado, Fergie, Busta Rhymes, Rihanna, Day 26, and more.
