According to IMDB, the 2011 documentary First Position “follows six young dancers from around the world as they prepare for the Youth America Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world.”

The movie has gotten stellar reviews, and it is also one of those movies that Savannah missed.

Which makes it a fitting choice for the Psychotoric Film Society‘s Movies Savannah Missed Film Series.

First Position, by Bess Kargman, will be screened on Sunday, August 12 at Muse Arts Warehouse at 2, 5, and 8.

Tickets are $8 at the door, or charge them in advance online at this link for $12, with the extra few bucks going straight to the Savannah Dance Festival.

The inaugural Savannah Dance Festival has scheduled a series of events in October. The next fundraising event is With a Twist, a concert fundraiser at Savannah Arts Academy directed by Karen Burns. More details here.
