"First Position"

My sister won tickets to a preview screening being held by The Strand Arcade of the ballet documentary First Position.

It follows the preparation and lives of a few young dancers in the lead up to the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix ballet competition in New York City. It is truly inspiring and makes me wish I continued with ballet as a child (as I've said on this blog before!).

My favourites are Miko, for her insane technique and perfect ballerina body, and Joan Sebastian for his sheer dedication, his family story and the emotion he shows in his dance.

Here are some cool pics of some of the dancers...

If you get the chance to see it, I strongly recommend it!
