Question Ayu famous dancers?

Sorry I think I'm making so many questions

So... I noticed 2 pre-debut artists working as dancers for ayu during Stadium Tour 2002, they were URATA NAOYA (from AAA) and another guy from EXILE (Don't know his name). Of course they are recognized artists nowadays but during those times it makes sense that they were avex trainees.

I know also Naoto from EXILE worked with ayu as a dancer during 2004-2005.

Apart from these 3 people, are there other celebrities that worked with ayu prior to debuting?

Is that really true that Urata was a dancer of her? I didn't knew about it. I think the only "famous" person was NAOTO...

^Yes, I mean there was a dancer credited as URATA NAOYA on Dome Tour and Stadium Tour, I don't think it was just a random guy with same name haha

About your question, I'm not sure if there are other cases like that, sorry.

Hooooooooooly shit. I'm not sure anyone ever connected those dots before??? That would explain their strange and seemingly sudden brother/sister relationship that came outta nowhere

I thought it was known but he only showed up for a bit as an ASAYAN dancer for that tour and DT01.

There was a specific audition for her tours and three people got in from it. I recall that they were labeled as (ASAYAN) in booklets and it was in a good bit of promo material.

That's amazing! So many know names were discovered after this: Ami Suzuki, Mai Goto, Yaguchi Mari! Never saw this before!
