Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Ballet 422 is a documentary that chronicles the journey of the New York City Ballet's young choreographer in residence, Justin Peck, as he creates a new ballet for the company's Winter 2013 season. Audiences interested in dance will appreciate the behind-the-scenes look at how a new ballet is created, from the choreographer's first steps (recorded by iPhone, so he can watch and revise later) to early practices to the endless rehearsals all the way to opening night. There's very little iffy content in the film, save for a couple of muttered exclamations of "s--t," but it's not really meant for young viewers who won't understand the process. And without a dramatic storyline, littler kids might get bored in a way that older kids (especially dance lovers) won't.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

The dancers suffer physical pain.

Language

A couple uses of "s--t."

Social Behavior

Hard work, dedication, and discipline are strong themes. Sometimes the cost of the dancers' focus is physical pain (some have bandaged feet or sore bodies needing a massage).

Consumerism

Since it's a documentary, the brands aren't really product placements, just what the ballet's company dancers, staff, and choreographer use/own: iPhone, Apple computer, Steinway piano, Band Aid, and more.
