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!

And I’m happy to say I’m able to give a copy away to one lucky reader.

Just leave a comment telling me why your little darling is the next Prima Ballerina! I’ll choose from the entries on Tuesday, November 25 at 9 pm est. Please leave a way to email you to be considered.

    It was love at first sight between Grace & ballet at 18 months of age. With a small part in our annual church Christmas program, wide eyed Grace watched backstage as the elegant ballerinas twirled on stage to the Nutcracker Suite. Gracie woke the next morning gloriously swirling & twirling. Thus, began our love affair with ballet.

    Now three years & countless demi-pliés later, she is a Petite Flower in the Nutcraker Suite. Opening night is less than 3 weeks away & we are thrilled beyond containment!

    I can think of no better surprise for my prima ballerina Grace than Swan Lake. Thank you for such a great review & hosting this generous giveaway.

    We were taking Ballet for the past 2 years and now decided on Gymnastics, Genesis is a dancer at heart. Gymnastics isn’t dancy enough for her. She still loves to pop in a CD and do a show for us, OFTEN. I would love to give her this!!
