  • thekristynburttIt's #15SecondDanceScoop time! A little #DWTS dish about the Bulgaria controversy...

  • elleseesCraziness! !!!
  • thekristynburtt@ellesees Right? US and UK shows are considered the gold standard of the #DWTS franchise. Pros don't own their choreo from show, so producers are free to use it over and over in other countries. The hard work has already been done for them.
  • sally_bradenThat really sucks...
  • evainedevereauxIndeed. Sucks the high hard one, that's for sure.
  • elleseesDo you have any idea what the pros make? I'm guessing they get more the longer they last?

  • bosnjakmanuNo one cares who has won an Emmy or 200 of them. Choreography comes from you. It's special and it is like your baby. That's how I feel about it and it's a privilege to see others dance it. It makes you proud. This is extremely different. This is basically someone claiming your choreography. The costume, hair and step by step. It's a shame that hard work can be stolen. Surely, there is no copyright in choreography generally but when the music, costume and step by step of the choreo is copied, it's very different. I know Sharna was pissed, I wonder who else got a hold of the news. They don't deserve this. So wrong.
  • fallinlight29It's ridiculous how blatantly those routines were copied (speaking for Peta's & Sharna's especially which I am very familiar with). I suppose the costumes & camera blocking aren't a big deal. But copying choreo step for step & presenting it on national tv as original, is insulting. No, of course no pro 'owns' individual dances. But just like for songs where notes put together in a unique way constitute a copyright-able song, so should steps put together in a unique way make for some kind of legally owned dance routine. At the very least I hope the US pros end up getting paid for ‘donating’ their services to the Bulgarian show!
  • thekristynburtt@ellesees Not sure what the rate is for newbies, but it is on a week by week basis. Voted out=no paycheck. I'm sure longtime pros make way more than new pros as well.
  • cummingssa2The pros took time making it perfect for their star and it just gets copied not fair
  • kakrn97Don't blame em! I'd be pissed too!!!
  • thekristynburtt@rnccrn9706 Agree! It's so hard to renegotiate a contract when we are heading into S19...but a good reminder for future work/contract for any artist.
  • morgan_steward@thekristynburtt such a shame! Especially when the dances are not done justice (cough Maks' swing and Sharna's contemporary piece)
  • joycemyugreat scoop!! thanks @kristynburtt! I was very curious how the pros felt about it!
