First Position

This event is SOLD-OUT.  There may be a limited number of tickets released to the rush-line the day of the screening, 15 minutes before showtime.

Co-presented with Barista Kids.  The Audience Award winner at DOC NYC, First Position changes our perception of ballet by following a diverse group of student dancers as they compete for scholarships at the Youth America Grand Prix. First time director Bess Kargman follows six students from varied backgrounds (including a Sierre Leone war orphan adopted by a New Jersery family) as they strive to achieve their dreams. Even if you’re not a ballet aficionado, you can’t help rooting for their hard work to pay off. Courtesy of Sundance Selects.
