At this point, she should probably be worrying more about the fate of her existing repertory.

This makes me very sad. Yes, she needs to make some plans for her rep, but it is the end of something special.

I do not know what to think... I am used to the idea of dancers being forced eventually to retire... But to decide to stop creating? .... . Marcel Duchamp retired successfully... But one is more used to choreographers persisting to the bitter end... (whether or not that is for the best)...

Gioachino Rossini retired at 37 and lived another 39 years. I'd call that successful :)
