Film club to show ballet doc

Competitive ballet is the focus of the upcoming Reel Life Film Club on Friday, March 2, at 6 p.m. at the Howland Public Library in Beacon. Students in grades 6 to 12 are invited to see First Position, a 2011 documentary that follows dancers preparing for a prestigious competition.

Following the film, there will be a discussion with Solee Dinio, a Beacon High School student who danced in the competition depicted in the film, and Alex Bloomstein, the director of Ballet Arts Studio. Registration is encouraged by emailing [email protected]
