I am NOT asking for gossip here, but is there any word on where any of these

dancers will be going next?

I've deleted two posts giving who has resigned, who has joined what company, etc. PLEASE READ OUR GOSSIP RULES. If it is not in print or in a press release, it is gossip.

Often what we hear is inaccurate. Publishing it on the internet, here or anywhere, can do harm if a contract isn't signed. Also, both dancers and companies deserve the right to break news on their own schedule.

Here's the link to our Gossip Rules

I think we're going to have to wait for answers on this one until the fall season, when companies release their rosters.

No Gossip intended:-)

The companies these dancers have moved onto have all released rosters...and the majority of the comp.'s listed have begun their contracts.

Thanks, monkeedance -- I know your intentions were honorable (I sent you an email after I deleted the posts.) But we've had so many posts on the order of "I just heard he went here" that it's been a real problem for us, and without sourcing the info, someone else would have read those posts and thought, "Cool! I know where all the dancers in my company went, too!" Unfortunately, our rules have developed through sad experience :unsure:
