If it is optional and they don't like it, then they don't have to do it.


So then what are they b-tching about?

I guess if this issue is a determining factor to the Rockettes intellect, then I'd say it speaks for it's self.

I believe it was the initial memo sent out. Seasonal's OP is a few days old in regard to the story.

I have worked for many professional dance companies (on the production side).

Dancers don't get to choose when and where to perform.
The directors, or administrators, book performances and without a legitimate doctor's note the dancers are expected to perform.
If they do not perform they likely will be released from their contract. It's not a big deal for the company, there are plenty more dancers willing and able to sign up.

These dancers who are complaining are a disappointment to their art.

So help me here.

Some women who make money by what they do with their bodies are upset that they may have to perform in a venue that includes one guy that they don't agree with?

Am I missing something?

They want to make a statement because they haven't learned to be grown ups yet and accept that people may have different opinions than them. They also refuse to acknowledge that they have performed for people who do the same things they claim to be against.

How many times in a person's life do they get to perform for the POTUS. Idiotic stand and a non existent problem.

Apparently it is in the contract for the Rockettes that they can refuse, without penalty, outside engagements..meaning located where they do not normally perform.

It seems, that a lot of people do not want to for this incoming POTUS.

Apparently Donald has a bad reputation of not paying his talent. Perhaps that's it.....

That really doesn't answer the question. There is a non existent threat, and a volunteer opertunity. Now if they don't does that mean they will be in deep doo doo at work? Who knows, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Trump, is apparently not a tax payer (by his own admission), so you are right, he does not pay his bills.

The Rockettes are generally a family show. Come to find some of them don't like Trump and they don't want to go. Their contract states and MSG Company, later said they don;t have to go. The OP is a few days old in information.

Normally, they do not perform in specific for one person. It is a large crowd of people they do not know. This is a political event focused on one person. They don't want to do it. I am not sure how this is confusing.

Because it's a gig in front of the biggest audience of the year. Turning it down based on your personal feelings of one person in the audience is just stupid.

Oh wait.. they're liberals.

Never-mind... carry on and I'm off to a real thread.

I'm sure also in that contract there are clauses about, downsizing the dance troop without warning, or strict weight/health/size requirements, or others that would make these ladies fear of being fired for not performing valid. Otherwise this is much ado about nothing.

Apparently they're stirring the pot for the same reason that the divas in higher education are in meltdown. Nobody ever taught them to be adults. In the entertainment world, not really that different for academia if you think about it, they get an elevated sense of worth because people literally fall at their feet. When someone fails to show this sort of abject and complete devotion, their oversized egos get bruised and the pain of that has to be deflected to others since it is too much for them to bear alone. And since msm and social media depend on drama queens for bait---we have the current situation with adults acting like toddlers and being treated like toddlers.

And the rest of the world looks at our country and sighs....or laughs their heads off (that's my Irish friends who lived through the political "struggles" there.)

Oh, WOW! Now I understand completely. I thought they were performing for the inauguration ceremonies---didn't realize it was a command performance for only the Donald. Well then, I certainly don't blame them. I'd demand that others be allowed to view my performance as well. Thanks for the explanation.
