Miko Forgarty is a classical ballet dancer from California. Miko is most known for being featured in the 2011 documentary "First Position."

On First PositionEdit

Miko was one of several dancers featured in the documentary. It focused on each of the dancers journey to the 2010 Youth America Grand Prix New York finals. Miko revealed she is home schooled so she can do more ballet. Miko competed in the semi-finals but tripped in her first performance. Her second proved to the judges that she deserved to move onto the finals. Miko's Don Quixote solo in the finals got her the Bronze Medal. She later was seen with a new streaching coach and working harder then ever for the next competition.


  • Miko started dancing at the age of 4.
  • Miko is homeschooled.
  • She originally started tennis but decided to pursue classical ballet.
  • Miko dances 7 days a week and up to 6 hours per day.
  • Miko wanted to dance with her brother, Jules, in the same company one day until he quit ballet.
