The pastry cart was only the first part of the celebration. The celebration of Gavin and her illustrious career continues this afternoon at the Newmark Theater with her farewell performances in Tolstoy’s Waltz and Duo Concertant. It has been nothing short of an honor to dance with Gavin over the years, and I look forward to doing so again this afternoon in Tolstoy.
In honor of Gavin’s last class at OBT’s SE studios, Alison had the idea to have a pastry cart rolled around class in between barre and center. It’s always been an idea of Gavin’s to have one in the OBT building, and those croissants certainly did raise spirits and give us the extra energy to get through the rest of class.
Here Gavin serves fellow dancers much needed mid-class sustenance:
See you at the theater.
