Producer/Director Beth Kargman has put together a wonderful documentarythat follows six young ballet dancers to the Youth America Grand Prix,one of the most important of all ballet competitions worldwide.

The prizes at the competition include awards of recognition,scholarships, and work with major dance companies. The dancers are inseveral age ranges and ethnicities and include 11-year-old Aaron Bell,Joan Sebastian Zamora, a dancer from Colombia, Michaela Deprince,ablack dancer, Jules and Miko Fogarty, of mixed ethnicity, prettyIsraeli Gaya Bommer, and all-American girl Rebecca Houseknecht.

Michaela and her sister were adopted from Sierra Leone, where there wasnothing but death and poverty. Michaela has been told that blacks makeunsuitable ballet dancers -- bad feet, too muscular, wrong build etc.For the competition, her teacher has her dance against type, doing afeminine, delicate dance.

Zamora lives in New York, far away from his family, but his fathertells him there is nothing for him in Colombia and he has to go afterhis dream. Rebecca is a cheerleader and normal kid whose passion isdance, and Aaron doesn't tell other kids he's a dancer. All of themhave great talent, as we can see from their dance routines at the GrandPrix. Zamora has stardom written all over him. Jules has decided hereally doesn't like ballet, which hurts his mother, but she accepts it.

A very inspiring documentary about youngsters from differentbackgrounds and social status with the dream of dancing in the ballet,and the sacrifices they have made to achieve their goal. The dancing isheavenly; I only wish there had been more of it.

Good luck to all these kids. I'm sure we'll be hearing about most ofthem as time goes on.

I don't like ballet....yet I liked this film!Reviewed byMartinHaferVote: 9/10

"First Position" is an incredibly interesting documentary. I say this because I hate ballet...yet I found myself seriously drawn into the lives of these kids. It must be good if it could win me over, that's for sure.

This film is about a group of kids who are trying to make it in ballet field. They range in age from 8 to 17 and are from various countries--including the US, Columbia and Israel. And, through the course of the film, you see them in various international competitions--trying to win awards, scholarships and, perhaps, jobs.

While none of this on the surface sounds that interesting, the film has several things going for it. First, many of the kids are incredibly likable and are amazing to watch. The most amazing of these is the insanely talented 11 year-old boy who is just gorgeous to watch as he dances (it looked so easy and his joy as he danced was infectious). Second, a few of the stories pulled me in and got me excited--such as the girl originally from Sierra Leone and the SUPER-annoying mother who pushed her boy to dance even though he clearly was not interested. Third, the film lacks narration and just lets the folks talk--and most of the best documentaries do this. Fourth, and this one surprised me, I found myself REALLY, REALLY caring about the kids. As the final competition progressed, I was on the edge of my seat. Well worth seeing.

Probably the best documentary I have ever seen. The acting, music and interviews are all superb. This movie has almost more of an entertainment feel than a typical documentary that has a more educational feel. I will almost certainly watch this again in the future. It makes me want to be a dancer too!
