All Your Favorite Dancers Are Rocking GapFit

Gone are the days that you'd pop into the Gap at the mall in hopes of maybe grabbing a basic tee or comfy corduroys. Today, Gap has gone all in on athleisure and, more recently, dance-specific threads.

Case in point: GapFit's new fall campaign, which is all about dance. With Jonah Bokaer at the choreographic helm and a few of your favorite dancers as the faces of the campaign (think Complexions Contemporary Ballet's Addison Ector, Calvin Royal, Barton Cowperthwaite, Pennsylvania Ballet principal Mayara PineiroAmanda Smith, Victor Montalvo and Kaelynn Gobert-Harris), it's safe to say we're all hitting up the mall later today.

Here are a few of our favorite photos and videos from the new "Do You" campaign.

Enter the World of the Knicks City Dancers with 2 of Their Newest Rookies

Auditions rarely fail to deliver on suspense. But this? This was the nail-biter to end all nail-biters. Hayoung Roh and Chelsea McCloskey, both professional dancers based in NYC, had made it through what felt like endless rounds of cuts, both on Zoom and in person. Out of the nearly 500 dancers (from 30 states and nine countries) who'd answered the Knicks City Dancers' open call for video submissions, just 20 remained—McCloskey and Roh among them. "We were separated into six holding rooms, where we kept trying to figure out the math," Roh recalls. "How many girls are there in total? Who was called back?"

Finally, the women returned to the audition room to dance one last time—or so they were told. Instead, KCD head coach Alyssa Quezada dropped her bombshell: All 20 women had made the final cut. They would be 2021–22 Knicks City Dancers: the latest and greatest edition of one of the most prestigious NBA dance teams. "It was the biggest celebration and the coolest moment of my dance career so far," says McCloskey now. And that was just the oh-so-perfectly-dramatic beginning.
