What do ballet dancers do when they "retire"?

Yesterday I attended the final performance of a principal dancer of the New York City Ballet named Yvonne Borree. It was a lovely performance and at the end there were tears, hugs, flowers and confetti. \ \ She is maybe in her late thirties, and still is of course is in fabulous shape, but I began to wonder, what do ballet dancers do when they retire? Inher case I read that she is going to teach at their ballet school, but there can only be so many teaching positions. \ \ From "star" dancers on down to corps members, what do they do with the rest of their lives? How do they start a NEW career in their thirties?
