Six dancers will get the opportunity to represent Barbados at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn in November.

 Shari Pollard, Eshe Blackett, Amaris Clarke, Cristanna McConney, Cherish Hobbs and Ghelisa Mayers were full of tears, joy and excitement on Wednesday when they were selected to dance with the Brooklynettes at an event dubbed Barbados Night.

The Brooklynettes is the official dance team of the Brooklyn Nets, a National Basketball Association team.

The announcement was made just after 9 o’clock before a large gathering that included excited family, friends, fellow dancers and the original “Bajan Brooklynettes” at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill campus.

“Shocked” was how Pollard, a veteran dancer and principal of the dance company Trident Productions, felt when her name was the final one called.

 Only this past Crop Over season did the 31-year-old decide to return to dancing, after a self-imposed four-year retirement, as a way to strengthen her resolve to step outside of her norm. (SDB Media)
