As directed by Bess Kargman, “First Position” is, in part, the latest addition to a documentary subgenre that’s proved wildly popular. Combine eager youngsters with the elixir of competition, and whether it’s spelling bee rivals in “Spellbound” or recreational dancers in “Mad Hot Ballroom,” you have a formula for maximum audience engagement. But because, as its title indicates, “First Position” is set in the world of classical ballet competition, the situation is even more compelling and emotionally involving. For young people, it’s more than a hobby or a sidelight. Ballet consumes lives and involves an overwhelming commitment of time, emotion and funds from not only the child, but also his or her adult support group.

Through the program, OCF is providing property owners with free trees to plant in the park strips in front of their lots. The nonprofit will also cover the cost of cutting into the concrete where necessary. Property owners who participate in this program would need to commit to watering the tree weekly for the first year to help it establish itself. Tree species with small canopies are compatible with the small space in the park strip. OCF asks that a minimum of 10 trees be planted on one street in order for its volunteers to undertake a community planting. The nonprofit can also provide native shrubs for park strips.
