No I'm not calling them proteges, some were band members like (Cat)Mayte, (the girl during the Rave era) etc, Misty was neither protege nor bandmember she dance for Prince for a few shows on tour and I think a video

I wouldn't really classify dancers as protegees (they'd be associates) -- he didn't try to launch their career by masterminding their own stand-alone projects under their own name, which to me is what separates his protegees. Dancers like The Twinz would be in that Associate pool, I think.

Jill Jones - Protege (Solo Album), Associate (backup singer), Girlfriend

Susannah - Protege (The Family), Associate (Backup Singer/Revolution Member), Girlfriend/Fiance

Shiela - Protege (Solo Albums), Associate/Band Member

Cat Glover - Associate (Dancer In His Band)

Ingrid Chavez - Protege, Associate (Grafitti Bridge/Solo Album)

Robin Power - Protege, Associate (Grafitti Bridge)

Diamond & Pearl - Associates (Dancers In His Band)

Carmen - Protege, Associate (Toured w/ Prince & released album), Girlfriend

Nona Gaye - Associate (collaborated on released songs), Girlfriend

Mayte - Protege, Associate (Dancer In His Band), Girlfriend/Wife

Tamar - Protege, Associate (Toured w/ Prince & planned an album)

I'm sure I am missing some, but this is the initial list that I have.

Interestingly, Prince himself used the term "Protege" in his song "I Love U, But I Don't Trust U....", which is a song about a personal relationship, so if you go by the lyric written by him, it implies that his "Protege" was both a professional and personal relationship to him.
