First Position, the documentary about a group of kids training for an elite ballet competition, has been on my to-watch list for a long time. Happily, it’s now on Netflix Watch Instantly! We watched it last weekend, and I was so amazed by their passion, skill, and dedication. (Although watching some of them practice en pointe freaked me out). Getting a peek into the pre-professional world of ballet was mesmerizing. By the end of the movie, watching the competition results was almost too much to bear. I totally started crying tears of joy like I was a ballet mom.
Have you ever danced ballet? Would you watch it?
