Synopsis

First Position is a documentary film that follows six talented ballet dancers as they struggle to maintain form in the face of injury and personal sacrifice on their way to one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world.

This film is about love of dance and a drive to succeed that trumps money, politics and even war. With unprecedented access to the Youth America Grand Prix, the largest competition that awards full scholarships to top ballet schools, the documentary 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.
