The company has 87 Dancers for this new season against 90 the last season. The RB lost 3 Principal Dancers and 4 First Artists promoted to Soloists. The RB needs new Principal Dancers…who will be next? The current Principal Dancers have been First Soloists between 1 or 2 years only except Laura Morera (5 years) and Edward Watson (3 years).

Alexander Campbell, new Star Dancer of the company, recruited last year from the BRB could be the next Principal Dancer. However regarding the Ballerina I have some trouble to pick one and highlight her career to see the Principal potential…

The current principal Dancers have some stage principal experience. For the ballerina they are Principals since 8 years (average) the most recent promotion is Lauren Cuthbertson 3 years ago. So the next new Principal Dancer should be brave to face all these experienced stage Ballerina! For the boys it’s different they are Principal since in average 5 years only, Nehemiah Kish has been appointed Principal last year, Steven McRae 2 years ago.
