First Position

Synopsis
The Youth America Grand Prix is a competition for young ballet students between the ages of nine and nineteen. The contest is one of the world’s leading proving grounds for new talent, and most major dance companies and schools pay close attention to who performs well in the annual contest. Each year, thousands of dancers enter, but only 300 make it into the finals, held in New York City. FIRST POSITION follows six young dancers who have entered the Grand Prix, and their lives and backgrounds offer a glimpse into the wide range of competitors.
