Oooo emmmmm geeeeee!!!
I have been in love with ballet for as long as I can remember. My favorite field trip in school was to see the Christmas production of The Nutcracker – to this day, my best friend and I still go every year to see it at the holidays. I just think that of all the types of dance, it is by far the most beautiful.
While I wish I could get on pointe, and pirouette my way across a stage, it’s probably a good thing that my mom didn’t enroll my sister or I in ballet classes beyond the “leap gracefully over the feather” level. My low tolerance for pain and love of food would have been a huge problem.
Anyways, there have been pretty much zero good ballet movies since Center Stage (and even some people might argue with me that it wasn’t that great of a movie). That is why I am SO excited for the release of First Position – a documentary that follows six young dancers as they compete in one of the largest and most prestigeous world wide dance competitions.
Watch the trailor – goosebumps!!
