Dance is such an awesome way to get our kids moving and allows them to express themselves creatively while boosting their confidence. If you're looking for a sure to be impactful and high energy experience with professionals for your kids, check out the Brooklyn Nets Kids Dance Team Virtual Camp.
Taking B-boy lessons really allowed our tween son to burn off energy, make new friends outside of school and made him feel larger than life during performances. The bully's stopped bugging him after seeing his moves on stage during last year's holiday show and with only a year under his belt he competed in his first competition this Fall. Whether attending school remotely or as a hybrid student, it's essential that we find ways to make sure our kids are exercising to benefit their physical and mental well being. I guess one benefit to this pandemic has been the opportunity to access programs and activities virtually, that weren't being offered before.
This Wednesday, Oct. 14, the Brooklyn Nets Kids Dance Team will kick off a six-week virtual intensive series where children ages 6-13 will have the opportunity to learn different dance styles and on-court choreography while receiving professional insights from former members of the team, the current Nets Kids Coach, the Nets’ Director of Entertainment.
Registration is open to dancers of all levels and classes will be held once a week via Zoom. Participants are able to join single sessions throughout the series for $25/class, or sign up for all six classes for $125 total.
Members of the Brooklyn Nets Kids dance team have performed with renowned artists including Justin Bieber and Mariah Carey, and have also been featured on FOX’s So You Think You Can Dance and the reality show Dance Moms. The Brooklyn Nets Kids dance team was created in 2012 before the Nets’ inaugural season at Barclays Center and performs at weekend home games at the arena, along with representing the organization at events throughout the New York area. Last year, more than 500 kids auditioned for the 18-member dance team.
