First Position 2.0 stars

First Position movie poster

Filmmakers follow the lives of several aspiring ballet dancers from around the globe (ages 9 to 19) as they train for the Youth America Grand Prix, a prestigious dance competition in New York City that holds the potential for career stardom. The dancers offer some humanity to the generic storytelling. There is a curious paradox of maturity in them — the immature development of their bodies vs. the mature grace of their abilities; their youthful age vs. their sophisticated speech. Unfortunately, the film quality is a far cry from the poise and creativity of the performances. 2012.
