Jeffrey Gantz of the Boston Globe writes about First Position:

First position in ballet is the one in which you turn your feet out so that the heels touch and the feet try to form a straight line. First position in any competition is everybody’s goal. So it’s no surprise that “First Position” is the name of first-time filmmaker — and Brookline native — Bess Kargman’s new ballet-competition documentary, which opened this past Friday at the Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge. The film follows seven students, ages 10 to 17, as they strive to reach the 2010 finals of the annual Youth America Grand Prix in New York City, where the prizes for the older winners include ballet-school scholarships and ballet-company contracts.

In his fifth collaboration with choreographer Graeme Murphy and his first for the premier classical ballet company, Isogawa has created costumes for more than 70 dancers in the production, at the Festival Theatre for six performances from May 25-30.

Isogawa is known for his soft and romantic silhouettes and has been showing in Paris since 1998. His collection was a standout at the recent Fashion Week Australia in Sydney.
