The backing dancer rumoured to have romanced Britney Spears just before she wed hometown pal Jason Alexander at the beginning of the year (04) is looking for a new job - and he wants to dance for Christina Aguilera.

Columbus Short insists his romance with Spears was blown out of proportion, but it still led to him splitting from his wife and getting kicked off Britney's current ONYX HOTEL tour.

And now he's teaching dance moves in New York, while he awaits for another pop superstar to offer him a regular choreography job.

Short says, "Me and Britney are cool still, so I'm sure we'll work together again, but in the meantime, 'Christina, hey, what's up mama?' You put yourself out there and just hope somebody else bites."
