    i don't know much about this type of employment, but isn't it by contract? so if the dancers had a contract that was short term, not seeing the big deal here. they have a right to work for whom they want, how long they want, and for how much $$$ they want.

    I guess they were good dancers. The dancing is very important when it's all bells and whistles anyway.

    Exactly. Something has to distract from their "singing" at the concerts.

    Having dancing-in-the-industry experience myself, I know there is a select pack of "high-demand" dancers out there.

    They're hired not only based on experience (dancing with past acts), but they have to be familiar with "road-life", also know to pick up routines quickly, adapt to changes quickly, not prone to injuries (trained/dance correctly to avoid injuries), have a known reputation that they work well with the main act (i.e. stay out of their way), get along with others on the tour, and most importantly - doesn't talk/sells stories.

    If you notice, people like Justin, Janet, Christina, Britney (when she was touring arenas)... they will have at least 2 or 3 of the same "high-demand pack" dancers on their tour(s).

    99% of the time it's not the dancers themselves making the decisions who they what to go with, as they have agents/management to deal with too, and moreso it's their agency making the decision on where they go based on the better deal ($), and their contracted schedule(s). Timing of the tours is a big factor.

    It's not just like the dancer can say "Oh, nevermind, I want to go to Katy's tour now"- there are contracts involved, as well as time, money, fittings, and a lot of energy spent. But hey, if the dancer is available... why not? But people (main acts) can't just "steal" dancers. There's definitely a process and a contract trail that goes along with booking dancers.

    Unless Katy paid the dancers she wanted to just sit around and wait for her tour (which I highly doubt), I don't see why Taylor thought that Katy was "sabotaging" her tour with hiring a couple dancer's Taylor had on a past tour.

    I'd also like to point out there is a HUGE difference between hiring a dancer for a video shoot and a couple appearances in which they have a day or two to prepare for learning 1 routine, and hiring a dancer for a tour - doing 1-2 hour show per night, with outfit changes, for a couple of months. So that definitely narrows the dancer availability/selection down.

    I did a very small promo tour for an male artist just coming "into the scene" a long time ago, he was a teen then, and I did a couple mall and small ball room type venues - appearances up and down the west coast, and, as much as I love to dance (and still do), touring, however big of a tour, is physically and mentally exhausting. And it just wasn't for me. (I was also in school at the time and felt that was more important).
    I did a couple televised gigs once in a while over the years, but never actively pursed a dance "career".

    So yeah... there's my take on the "stealing dancers" thing.

    I can't stand Taylor just because she is so immature, and acts like she is STILL 14. And I really have no thoughts on Katy, good or bad...so I guess I would say I'm team Katy.

    Haha, I know, it's long
    It just bothers me when people like Taylor spew out general statements like "She tried to steal my dancers wah, wah, wah..." when I know that that's nearly impossible.

    I was an emergency spandex repair technician at all of Milli Vanilli's road tours, so I can testify to everything SoCalMarie is saying.

    Haha! That just gave me the greatest mental picture... The backstage quick-change with Milli Vanilli, while their pre-recorded song still playing...

    Great, now I'll have "Girl you know it's true" stuck on repeat in my head for the rest of the day.
    Literally, the footage/audio when they got caught, "Girl you know it's, Girl you know its, Girl, you know its... (because I don't know the rest of the words of the song )

    Unimportant fact - my mom graduated high school with Neil Sedaka. Carry on.

    ^lol, leona helmsley went to Lincoln too!

    Sedaka's mom lived in the same condo development in Fl as my grandparents. I used to hang out with his daughter Dara.
