First Position

With unprecedented (and exclusive) access to the Youth America Grand Prix, the largest competition that awards full scholarships to top ballet schools, First Position takes audiences on a yearlong journey around the world. At a time when art, music and dance for children are severely under-funded, the film reveals the struggles and success, the pain and extraordinary beauty of an art form so many children across the globe are determined to dedicate their lives to- despite the odds.

Back in 2002, the spelling-bee movie “Spellbound” kicked off a run of kiddie-contest documentaries of which “First Position” is the latest example. It’s a foolproof genre: All you have to do is find a discipline (spelling, ballroom dancing, poetry slams, what have you), get a camera, and focus on a group of charismatic kids as they vie for one or more top spots. Bingo: instant drama.
