The RDB website has been updated to show company changes for the season 2013/4:

 

Soloist Tina Højlund has left the company (she has reached the retirement age)

 

Corps de ballet dancers Shelby Elsbree and Tara Schaufuss left towards the end of the 2012/3 season - Elsbree has joined the Boston Ballet and was already dancing with them during their recent visit to London.

 

Aspirants Viktoria Falck-Schmidt, Magnus Christoffersen and Sebastain Haynes have been promoted to the corps de ballet

 

There are two new aspirants, Benedicte Bøjer and Madeleine Carstensen, who join Louise Brorsen, Tobias Prætorius and Oliver Marcus Starpov.

Congratulations to the promoted dancers and the new aspirants :flowers:

 

Tina Højlund's Effie was the absolute highlight of the "La Sylphide" I saw in the early '00's.

I loved her in Bournonville when I saw some RDB soloists on tour (also in the early 00's).  Well . . . wishing her the best!

She's actually doing just a couple more shows, of a piece called Ballet Relay, made by Sebastian Kloborg and Tim Matiakis for a tour last summer as a sort of ballet-meets-the-Olympics: it was very popular and there are dozens and dozens of photos of it, including Højlund, here.
