For the young dancers at the Youth America Grand Prix, one of the world’s most prestigious ballet competitions, lifelong dreams are at stake. With hundreds competing for a handful of elite scholarships and contracts, practice and discipline are paramount, and nothing short of perfection is expected.
Bess Kargman’s award-winning documentary, FIRST POSITION, follows six young dancers as they prepare for a chance to enter the world of professional ballet, struggling through bloodied feet, near exhaustion and debilitating injuries all while navigating the drama of adolescence.
A showcase of awe-inspiring talent, tenacity and passion, FIRST POSITION paints a thrilling and moving portrait of the most gifted young ballet stars of tomorrow.
If you’re in Saint Louis, FIRST POSITION opens on May 18th in the Plaza Frontenac Theater. You can see if the movie is playing near you also!
I have an exciting giveaway for you – a prize pack that consists of 4 tickets (Valid Monday-Thursdays) to see FIRST POSITION and a movie poster signed by Director Bess Kargman and Miko Fogarty, a dancer featured in the film.
