While not the most probing look at rising stars, Bess Kargman's documentary focuses on six aspiring contestants preparing for the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix competition (a proven entry point into the world of professional ballet) who demonstrate dazzling talent. Well, perhaps not the younger brother of 12-year-old prodigy Miko (he's more interested in being a kid; cue their mother's tears), but once you see the rest take to their toes, you won't be surprised that each advances to the finals. The graceful cast also includes Aran, an 11-year-old military brat; 14-year-old Michaela, adopted at a young age from war-torn Sierra Leone; 16-year-old Joan, separated from his Colombian family to study in New York; and Rebecca, a self-proclaimed princess. While many of them could have ended up the subjects of a film like Bully, this isn't that story. These kids are proud of their tights.
