What I like so much about this video is that it completely satisfies my 3yr old who is hungry for any and all items related to being a princess/ballerina. I find it very hard to stomach all the Disney princess stuff (I disagree with much of the content), and I think this is a great alternative. It provides a way to introduce her to the arts while also allowing her to feel like a princess, in the imaginary sense. The video is a mix of an actual performance of Swan Lake that breaks here and there with video footage of young children practicing ballet moves. This keeps it interesting for young children whose attention span is short.

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.
This is a really great way to introduce Ballet to children of all ages. The video starts of with Prima Princess who narrates the story. The video features the Paris Opera Ballet performing four acts of Swan Lake. In between each act, their are children from the school of American Ballet who show you how to do specific ballet steps. There are four steps taught:

* Pirouette- to turn
* jete`- to jump
* pas de chat - step of the cat
* grand battement- big kick

Each step is spoken and then illustrated by the child ballerinas, then there are scenes to reinforce what each step means. For instance-Jete` means to jump, they then showed a cat jumping etc. I really liked how each step was shown and then reinforced repeatedly. In between the acts are scenes of small little girls dressed up in their tutus dancing around and laughing.
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.

We got this DVD for our 3 year old who loves to dress-up and play princess. She loves it, of course. Our 9 year old was not expecting to like the video at all but the "real live ballerinas" were mesmerizing & she has declared Prima Princessa is "fabulous!" Thank you for a video both girls can enjoy together!

I have wanted my daughter to take ballet classes since she was born, but my husband says the same thing every time I mention it " I cannot see paying $65 every month, when she can dance at home for free". Men, they just don't get it! If I am being realistic I understand that as a family of six we really can't afford that, but I still want her to learn ballet.....

Enter Prima Princessa... If you are like me and want your little princess to learn the fine art and discipline of ballet but can't take out a second mortgage to pay for lessons (which I don't recommend) this DVD is for you! I can not say enough good things about it, but I will try!

First of all Prima Princessa presents Swan Lake is only 6.99, that is unbelievable for a DVD! Secondly the way it's put together is so simple (as in it interests my 22 month old) yet so sophisticated! I was quite shocked when I hit play and realized we would be watching actual ballerinas from the school of American Ballet preform Swan Lake, and I'll admit I wondered if it would keep her attention, which it did! I think I enjoyed watching it as much as she did!

But the best part (aside from the animated ballerina who narrates the DVD) is that it engages your little "student" of ballet and gets her involved in the movements all while teaching basic ballet terminology!It's like the Baby Einstein of ballet!

This DVD has really encouraged me to do all I can to teach her about ballet, even if I can't afford formal lessons! I even plan to buy the the Prima Princessa
Ballet For Beginners Book so I can learn more about ballet!

I bought this DVD for my 3 year old granddaughter after reading the rave reviews, but I was disappointed. Two aspects of the program left me wanting more. It was great to see the professional ballerinas, and also the (approx.) 10 - 12 year old students demonstrating the first positions and a few movements, but then they also continually cut to a group of 4 - 5 year olds dressed in tutus prancing around outdoors free-form and acting silly. These scenes are cute, but did not help my 3 year old relate to the fact that she is expected to follow the movements and instruction of her teacher when she goes to ballet class. It really would have been better if they had shown a teacher with the girls, and showed them at least attempting to follow along.

The second thing which I felt was not helpful to my 3 year old, was that during the demonstration by the older students of the first positions and a few movements, the producer continually cut to scenes of live animals to convey the concepts of numbers and movements. This really wasn't necessary, and just confused and distracted my granddaughter who was initially very interested in watching the student's movements.
