For the lovers and artists of dance in my life – this is totally for you.  Centre Stage, eat your cheesy heart out.

First Position (US/Can – May 4) directed by Bess Kargman  has been making very lasting impressions at film festivals all over including premiering at TIFF this past September where it quickly won over the audiences.  And I now understand why after watching these trailers (below).  This stunning documentary follows the lives of 6 incredibly young and utterly talented ballet dancers – ranging from the tender ages of 9 to 17 years to the ultimate global ballet competition (to the world’s best ballet schools) at the Young America Grand Prix.  The stories sound moving and true to the best documentaries capturing artists who devote their entire lives to an art form.  I can’t wait!
