From the website of Prima Princessa - "This DVD is designed by two mom-entrepreneurs on a mission to bring the beauty and magic of ballet into the lives of children everywhere. It is a hip new twist on learning about ballet, featuring the Paris Opera Ballet and Students from School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center, Official Academy of New York City Ballet. Our 40 minute DVD is a cool, fun, beautiful show with a brain. Prima Princselect segments of Swan Lake. In between acts, the children return home to learn simple ballet steps which are playfully shown mixed into colorful montages of toys, animals, children and young dancers from the School of American Ballet."
I was really excited to review this video, with three girls in the family ballerinas are loved. At first I sat down with my older two girls to watch it, and half way through the video the younger two kids came and sat down.
- Pirouette- to turn
- jete`- to jump
- pas de chat - step of the cat
- grand battement- big kick
I really thought this was a great video, and even though it says ages 3-6 all my kids liked certain parts. My older daughters (8) and (6) enjoyed the ballerinas performing, while the youngest (20 months) liked to watch when the little girls danced and played.
This dvd is being re-released on March 2, 2010 and will be available to purchase at Amazon, Target, and other stores.
