First Position

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Synopsis: Every year, thousands of aspiring dancers enter one of the world's most prestigious ballet competitions, the Youth America Grand Prix, where lifelong dreams are at stake. In the final round, with hundreds competing for only a handful of elite scholarships and contracts, practice and discipline are paramount, and nothing short of perfection is expected. Bess Kargman's award-winning documentary, FIRST POSITION, follows six young dancers as they prepare for a chance to enter the world of professional ballet, struggling through bloodied feet, near exhaustion and debilitating injuries, all while navigating the drama of adolescence. A showcase of awe-inspiring talent, tenacity and passion, FIRST POSITION paints a thrilling and moving portrait of the most gifted young ballet stars of tomorrow.

Has anybody seen First Position yet? You might like a new show premiering on ABC Family this summer called Bunheads that features the world of dance mixed with all the drama that comes with it! Did you know the stars and executive producers were life-long dancers? Trust me, it shows! Here's a synopsis: Bunheads is the tale of a Las Vegas showgirl, who impulsively marries a man, moves to his sleepy coastal town, and takes an uneasy role at her new mother-in-law's dance school. From Executive Producer Amy Sherman-Palladino, the creator of Gilmore Girls, the series will be headlined by Tony Award®-winning actor Sutton Foster. Bunheads is set to premiere Monday, June 11. I work with the network and wanted to share with you the preview]for the series (you can find it on our official website), which premieres on Monday, June 11 at 9/8c. What do you think - will you guys tune-in?
