Need to See It: First Position (2011)

Have you guys been watching So You Think You Can Dance? I’ve been trying to keep up but with work it is a tad bit difficult. No real loss though when I can see professionals for cheap student rush prices. You know what is more impressive than reality dance shows? Documentaries of real dance.

From Director Bess Kargman comes an interesting documentary, First Position, following the lives of several dancers as they prepare to compete in the Youth American Grand Prix. While I was never as serious about dance as these kids are, I understand the pressure and the passion they must have to compete. I don’t have to wait long to see it, I am going to a screening tonight! If the film is playing near you check it out. I hope to learn more about the relatively private world of dance and the dancers that sacrifice everything for, what is for others, just a hobby.
