Dance Critic Alice Kaderlan: What It Takes To Reach The Top


Whether it's an Olympic athlete, a champion debater or an outstanding musician, excellent performers make what they do look effortless. But Seattle dance critic Alice Kaderlan recommends a documentary film as a vivid reminder of the intense focus, discipline and sacrifice that excellence always requires — whatever the pursuit. The recent documentary "First Position" features three aspiring ballet dancers who especially captured Alice's attention. One of them is just 11 years old. Alice Kaderlan speaks with KUOW's Dave Beck about "First Position."
