The American dancer J'aime Crandall, who was trained at the Kirov Academy in Washington, was promoted to Solodanser (Principal) of the RDB after her performance as the Sugar Plum Fairy in Balanchine's Nutcracker last night.

It's less than a year that she was promoted from the corps de ballet to soloist, so this is a fast rise - but she's been doing principal roles and from what I've seen of her she's come a long way since her Aurora last Christmas.
