This movie is a fantasy style movie where Barbie plays the main ballerina character named Kristyn who is in dance school with big dreams. After ripping her shoes in rehearsal, she has to find a new pair in the costume department. She ends up finding a pair of magical sparkling pink shoes that send Kristyn and her friend Hailey into a ballet world. There they find an evil Snow Queen. The storyline goes that the girls must dance their favorite ballets to defeat the evil queen and find a way home. There is some mild conflict with the Snow Queen, but nothing too upsetting for little ones. The best part about this movie is that your children are exposed to some great classical ballets (Swan Lake and Giselle) and music from famous composers (Tchaikovsky and Beethoven).
Overall, the movie was fun and colorful with great CGI graphics. It has educational value by exposing your children to famous classical ballets and music. And most of all, the kids love it. I can't imagine a movie that is more perfect for your little dancer. Highly Recommended.
So we've had this movie for a few months now and my girls are still really enjoying it. My oldest, who is now 6, has been doing dance for a while and really loves it. It is right up her alley. She has a little dancer doll that she says is Barbie in the Pink Shoes.Read more ›
This brings forward the 'message' of the movie, which contends that one should follow one's own heart and not be shackled by conventions. When Barbie dances, the music seems to flow right through her and she deviates from the established choreography to create her own, ultimately winning the day.Read more ›
A snow Queen shows up, she looks suprisingly like the ballet madame/teacher, it kinda has a The Wizard of Oz feel as characters from the 'real world' appear in the ballet world.
Then a... warlock shows up and it takes on a Ladyhawke feel as the girls turn into swans and they say the only thing that can fix that is true love, and/or sunset. They go to a party and the Snow Queeen reappears, spiriting away with a character. The two guys aspire to track her down so there can be a return to the 'real world.'
Quality information about ballet stories is mixed into the story, I was completely unaware of so I had no idea where the whole thing was going. Engaging.
