This may not qualify as "news", as there are really no surprises here, but Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun Times covered this trio's final Joffrey performance nicely in this article "Three Joffrey greats go off on the right foot". Plus there are links to some marvelous photos, both from Sunday's performance and from their careers with the Joffrey.

It's "news" indeed. And sad news. I haven't seen the Joffrey regularly for a long time, but they toured to our town this past winter. I couldn't take my eyes off one of the women, whose technique, total emotional investment, and stage presence were truly magnificent. During the fist intermission, I referred to the dancer photos in my program, It was Maia Wilkins. The ballets were pop -- including Deuce Coupe -- but the dancer was a real ballerina. What a loss for Chicago!

The photos linked to the article are marvellous. Thank you, motwins8391.
