4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction for 4 year olds and up May 12, 2007
Format:DVD
This DVD is a good introduction for kids who are very keen to learn ballet. It is presented in the format of a class, taught by Michelle Lundberg. Kids are introduced to 1st through to 5th positions, Plies, Tondus, Degajes, Rondejambs, Passes, Piques, Pas De Bourres, Balances, and jumps. I think that this DVD would best suit children 4 and up because the class format requires attention and obviously the moves are quite involved. I bought this DVD for my two year old because she is mad on ballet and thought she could dance along but the slow pace of the class does not catch her attention. The DVD is 38 minutes long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, clear, professional November 6, 2009
Format:DVD
Geared towards kids, the instruction is lovely, clear, professional and fun.
Michele delivers a very enjoyable yet disciplined enough beginner's ballet class.
Her speech is fun and clear.
She has a positive attitude and her movements are easy to follow yet very professional.
I enjoyed her instruction from an adult stand-point.
If I had a daughter, I'd encourage her to do the program together regularly over an extended period of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars My daughter LOVES this DVD! February 13, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My daughter is 6 and loves this DVD. It is well put together and great for aspiring ballerinas. Some parts move just a little quickly for young kids and now and then the camera angle goes from the front to the back which is something they need to do away with if they create an updated video at some point - if a child is mirroring the dancer and the angle changes suddenly, it can be confusing. But once my daughter had used the DVD a few times, she was able to catch right on to the moves. The teacher is very likable and does well connecting with her audience. I would recommend this DVD for anyone with a youngster who is developing an interest in ballet! Any youngster who wants to "be a ballerina someday" will want to practice every day, and this is a great way for them to get this practice. There is also a section on the DVD showing the lives of other ballerinas at all different levels. I think I might have enjoyed this part more than my daughter - LOL!

3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it better than my daughter November 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I would have given this 4 stars because I *personally* thought it was a good DVD for the money and it included exactly what I was looking for. However, I had to give it a 3 because my daughter would only watch it once.

I should mention that she just turned 7 and does sometimes tire of activities quickly--within about a week. However, she's been ballet crazy for years, and tends to do better with "aged down" activities anyway. So I thought this would be a perfect introduction, since our local ballet school's class times don't fit our schedule.

The quality of the video is good and the instruction seems appropriate for a rank beginner. A child who has had more than a few ballet lessons might find it boring, though. It's VERY basic. My daughter went through the entire DVD class dutifully and I thought she was enjoying it. Afterward she complained of soreness from the workout and we talked about ballerinas working hard and needing to be strong to dance as they do.

That was that. The DVD never came out again, and my daughter refused when I offered it. Turns out that she felt there was too much rote instruction of "this arm here, bend there" positioning and not enough of the "fun" part of dancing she was expecting. Maybe her expectations were too high for beginner ballet, but there WAS a lot of perfunctory stuff so I could see her point. I'm going to look for a DVD that offers more actual dance choreography to see if that rekindles her interest. In any case, I thought I'd post our experience here for anyone whose child is at a similar age/interest level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for mom, too! January 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this for my almost 5 year old. She is in her 2nd year of classes and I got this to supplement. It is a little beyond her right now but I think the more we use it, the more she will pick up. The first time we used it I was helping her get the right positions and quickly decided that I could use it for my own workout!

2.0 out of 5 stars no music January 24, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD was a birthday gift for a 3 year old great grandchild who has natural musical appreciation. She loves to mimic dancing groups then repeat with her own version. The parents played the DVD and although they did not play the whole thing they tell me there is no music with the classes.
What a disappointment; this little girl needs music with her instructions.
Great Grandma and Grandpa

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a start March 10, 2011
By DJ
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What's wrong with 3rd position? It's not taught here, which I think is odd. 5th position is so much harder, and that's taught, when 3rd isn't.

Otherwise, my 6 year old really likes the video. I was hoping she would do it independantly, but she doesn't. I think a formal class would be better.

3.0 out of 5 stars Little Fast January 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my four year old daughter and thought they went really fast in the program. My daughter has even told me that she doesn't want to watch it anymore because it goes so fast. I think this would be a great DVD if they slowed it down. If your child learns fast and you also have some background in Ballet it may work for you.
