They are from first ballet (ballot)

Hello, my friends,

I was wondering whether the underlined part is idiomatic:

"They are from the first ballet."

Thoughts: I heard this from (a) video... It means they are the among the first grade of the best.

    He actually says "first ballot". This refers to people who would be elected (to the hall of fame) on the first vote. It is understandable in the context, but it is not an idiomatic expression, and can only be used in this or a similar context.
