A friend of mine was at this show, he mentioned that Tina went down. I dont want to incite gossip, has there been any word on her condition?

Should we assume this to mean that she didn't contine dancing?

If there's any word from an official source, we'll be sure to post.

Towards the end of a review of Muriel Maffre's farewell performance, Rachel Howard wrote:

It wasn't the only dramatic bow of the weekend: On Saturday, Gonzalo Garcia graced the Opera House a final time in "Don Quixote." When his partner, Tina LeBlanc, injured her knee in the first act Garcia carried her off. Molly Smolen and Helimets rushed over to dance the second act and so Garcia could have his last dance, Vanessa Zahorian was called in to partner him in the third. At curtain LeBlanc was back, but in a knee brace, bearing flowers that Garcia accepted before again carrying her across the stage.
