Michele Wiles, and Charles Askegard left ABT, and NYCB to form a co. together called Ballet Next. A good name for this thread too!

What about Sylvie Guillem? I saw her doing a Kitri which (in my opinion) equalled Osopova's. I dancer I would love to know more about.

 Thanks to Maria Kochetkova for mentioning this interview, in English, with Sylvie Guillem on her Twitter page (probably the most entertaining Twitter page in the country):

"Maybe in a few years, I will decide to stop when the pain gets to be too much. I enjoy dancing but there is a time to say goodbye to it as well. I’ve been preparing myself for a long, long time — but for the moment, I’m not there yet. I’m enjoying it as fully as I can."

--Sylvie Guillem

I really like it that Ms Guillem is using her celebratory status to promote things such as ocean protection and other environmental causes.

Agreed. She is making good use of her time on the Earth.
