Screen Play: “First Position”

Keeping the world on its toes

first position!

Hunker down for the most artistic display of athletic competition: Six young, tenacious ballet battlers give up sleepovers and ice cream socials to prepare for the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix. Already a whirlwind sensation, Bess Kargman’s dancing doc is amassing awards faster than Nina Sayers can say, “It’s my turn.”
It’s like: So You Think You Can Dance takes Center Stage.
Take: Your little princess.
Premiered: May 4 (on demand May 15).
