Are there two Johan Kobborgs ?May seem a stupid question, but I am puzzled!!!

I know the one who dances with the Royal Ballet, and also guests around the world. Originally from the Royal Danish Ballet. He is fair haired and easily recognisable.
However, I have receently noticed a dark haired dancer with the Royal Danish Ballet quoted as being Johnan Kobborg cast on their latest programme calender. I do not think it is our Johan guesting there.
as he looks different in the video clips. Is it a common name in Denmark. Can anyone answer my query please? Thank you.

Thank you, to confuse things even more there is a video clip of Johann Kobborg dancing in La Sylphide I think at the Bolshoi, I have also seen a very recent video of a dark haired dancer given this name of "The Royal Danish Ballet". !!!

Royal Danish/London Royal Ballet dancer Johan Kobborg (the only one as far as I know) danced La Sylphide at the Bolshoi at least twice: in 2001 opposite marianna Ryzhkina and in 2004 opposite Alina Cojocaru (the only and the one from London Royal Ballet, dancing at the Bolshoi as a guest).
