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.
