Nets unveiled 14 senior citizens dancers

The Nets unveiled their newest squad of dancers at their game against the Detroit Pistons Wednesday: 14 senior citizens, ranging in age from 59-to-83 years-old.

And the old-timers _ 13 women and Joe _ brought the crowd at the Continental Airlines Arena to their feet by ending their one-minute routine by dancing to the hip-hop tune “Snap Yo Fingers.”

“It was great fun,” said 61-year-old Claire Gaines of New York City, who dances to the name “Blond-e” because the Nets are partially owned by rapper Jay-Z. “It was an exhilarating experience. I have always loved to dance so it was a lot of fun, but I have never danced in front of so large an audience.”
