The Nets have a new logo and a new home in Brooklyn. Now, they're looking for new dancers.

The team held open auditions for the Brooklyn Nets dance team Saturday.

More than 100 women lined up at the Fort Greene campus of Long Island University for their chance to take center court.

"It's all about standing out, having your unique characteristics and showing you have technique and dance skill, that you've been doing this for a while," said Alexandra Sack, who tried out.

"I love to dance," said Cammie Blake, who also tried out. "I love basketball. I love the energy of being in a stadium."

"We want to represent the diverse borough of Brooklyn, so we want women who are diverse, who are athletic, who are highly skilled and who actually serve as ambassadors for the Brooklyn Nets," said Kimberlee Garris, the Nets' entertainment director.

The field will be narrowed down to 50 call backs, who will perform again on Sunday.

Thirty finalists will perform for a chance to make the troupe on June 13.
