  1. BLP's rating of the film First Position

    Ballet is an extremely unhealthy sport, both physically and psychologically and it's cruel to put kids trough it. First Position does a good job of accurately portraying the harsh reality of the whole process even if it feels a bit amateurish at times as a documentary.

  2. libeka's rating of the film First Position

  3. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film First Position

    Great Documentary about the US ballet competition and its young competitors. You can see the pressure, the passion, the dreams of these young and sometimes very young dancers and their families... Highly recommended especially if you like dance and ballet.

  4. a Smith's rating of the film First Position

    I'm skeptical of the genre, but the participants look to be amazing.

  5. rusnėja's rating of the film First Position

    this is something that makes you feel the most inspired dancer and regret that you didn't put more work in your childhood.

  6. thegirlwiththedragontattoo's rating of the film First Position

    I used to dance in this competition myself and I thought this documentary really accurately portrayed YAGP. However, I felt it glorified the ballet world and wanted to be "feel good" rather than realistic.

  8. Endless Eye's rating of the film First Position

  9. Dizzydent's rating of the film First Position
