Dancers in the Gap Holiday 2007 Ad

This year’s Gap holiday ads featured a variety of actors and models – as always – and two dancers! Greta Hodgkinson of the National Ballet of Canada and Roberto Bolle of Teatro La Scala in Milan are featured in two photographs, which I’ve seen in many Gap store windows around the city, as well as in magazines. I’ve never seen either of them perform, nor do I know anything about their dance careers. But they look great in the photographs, and I’m glad that the Gap decided to feature some dancers along with the actors and models. It must have been fun for Hodgkinson and Bolle to do those lifts in comfy sweaters and scarves, rather than in leotards or tutus, as I’m sure they’re used to. Here’s an article about Hodgkinson’s experience with the photo shoot.
