Excellent news! Thanks.

My ears perked when I read Valeriia Chaykina's name. I remembered her from Teen Vogue's documentary Stictly Ballet 2 filmed this past June, following a handful of hopefuls vying for limited company positions in Miami Ballet. I'm glad she found a home to be a professional dancer.

With that said, who left Joffrey and to where (maybe retirement even)?
