Gilbert MAYER celebrates his 70th year as a professional at the Paris Opera - began 1st April 1951

Recommended Posts

Prof. Gilbert Mayer entered the Ecole de danse in April 1948, and joined the company on 1st April 1951.


Yes, it really was the 1st of April.  


And he is still teaching.  


This is almost certainly the lengthiest career in the Paris Opera's history.   


The "world's record" being held, perhaps, by Marina Simionova, who was apparently still teaching until her hundredth birthday.


Congratulations are in order!
