It does seem there is quite an allegiance to Gerald Arpino among long-time company members. In the article, Basden had this to say about her plans:
And on Friday, dancer Maia Wilkins -- whose contract is not being renewed after 18 years with the company -- was quoted in the Chicago Tribune about her future plans. I cannot located the (very short) article online, and have recycled my paper copy, but she mentioned plans to document Arpino's choreography.

But what about the Ashton, Cranko and Massine ballets? I would hate to think that the Joffrey won't be able to readily stage those in the near future.

And the company maintained rehearsal videos of the Massines for restaging purposes. I don't think they did so with Cranko or Ashton, but Georgette Tsingurides was called in the last time they remounted a Cranko work, and Ashton has been multiply notated.
