I know…how cute! If you are looking for the perfect little dancing video for girls ages 3-7, look no further! When the producers asked me if I would like to preview the video, I was so excited. My girls are teens, but had taken ballet. So we invited the neighbor’s girls over to watch and I can tell you, I’ll never see that copy of the DVD again!
Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake features the Paris Opera Ballet and Students from School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center, Official Academy of New York City Ballet. This 40 minute DVD is a beautiful show with a brain. Prima Princessa, an animated fairy ballerina, magically transports a group of little girls to see the Paris Opera Ballet performs select 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.
Stephanie Troeller, and Mary Kate Mellow are both stay-at-home moms who teamed up to produce “Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake”. They were both inspired by their children’s love of dance as well as a desire to see higher quality, culturally enriching programming available for young children.
The show is broken up into segments, each short enough to keep the attention of the young ones, and long enough to appeal to the older girls. I can see this being a great intro to ballet video for the child just deciding to take classes or a fun dance-along for children already involved in programs. And it would be fun for girls just wanting to dance. My daughter had a ball dancing with the neighbors and it was a cute fest all around.
And if the neighbors’ dancing in the yard down the street is any indication, this is a winner!
