If you’ve always wanted to perform at halftime of Brooklyn Nets games, now could be your chance.

The Brooklynettes, the Nets’ dance team, is holding open auditions on June 4 at the Arnold and Marie Schwartz Center at LIU Brooklyn. Doors open at 10 a.m., and auditions begin at 11.

Select dancers will move on to the callback auditions on June 5 at Barclays Center, and finalists will advance to additional sessions on June 6 and 7.

Special guest judges, including celebrity choreographer Luam, who has worked with artists from Beyonce to Britney Spears, will be on hand throughout the audition process.

In order to audition, dancers must be at least 18 and have extensive training in hip hop and jazz dance.
