Larsen Thompson Dances Into the GapFit Campaign

When GapFit launched their colorful campaign last summer, we collectively obsessed over it—because of the amazing athletic wear, of course, but also because some of our all-time favorite dance stars were leaping through the photos. And the latest familiar face to join is none other than Larsen Thompson, bona fide commercial superstar and one-half of The Fraternal Twins. It's not surprising, since her modeling career's been taking off just as fast as her dance career—girl knows how to sell it. And we're absolutely loving it—check out the video below (and keep your eye out for Martha Graham's PeiJu Chien-Pott and ABT's Calvin Royal III, who was in the last campaign, too!).

All you need for all the ways you move, from dawn to dusk. #DoYouMove

We got pro tips from Mike Tyus of Jacob Jonas The Company and Xin Ying of Martha Graham Dance Company, both of whom were dancing outside long before COVID-19 hit.

As allies, one of the first actions we can take in this moment is to listen to and amplify the voices of Black members of our dance community. Here are some of the most powerful posts written by Black dancers.
