Nine-year-old Isabelle is an inspired dancer with a flair for fashion design. She's thrilled to be studying ballet at a prestigious performing arts school, but her classmates are so talented—and she can't help feeling that she's always in the shadow of her "perfect" older sister, Jade. So when her idol, a famous ballerina, encourages her to audition for a professional ballet, Isabelle isn't sure she can land the role. And when a competitive classmate starts pointing out Isabelle's every mistake, her confidence sinks even further. Can she find the courage to step into the spotlight and discover her own way to shine?

We have only seen 3 American Girl movies so far but this is definitely my favorite. Isabelle is the Girl of the Year of course and after being introduced to her via Happy Meal, we decided to check out her movie. Like the rest of the American Girl movies, this movie has very positive themes about working hard, trying your best, etc.
I was very pleasantly surprised that although Isabelle and her sister have certain issues (I'll stay vague so as not to spoil anything), they overall have a very good sibling relationship and clearly love each other very much. The actresses that play Isabelle and her sister are very talented. The dance scenes are very well done and impressive as well.
As a fan of The Office, I was interested to see Melora Hardin as Isabelle's mother and she gave a good performance.
Definitely recommend for American Girl fans or even kids just getting into the whole American Girl world. Ballerinas and non-ballerinas will both love this but children who are familiar with dance and recitals will especially identify with the ballet rehearsal scenes.
I gave this movie five stars though, because for $12 I got a DVD that my kids have watched repeatedly already and will watch on car trips over the next few months. I know from listening in that its a good clean movie with a positive message for young girls, so I don't have to worry about what they're watching.
If you're a parent or grandparent looking for a gift for a young girl, you can't go wrong with this or any of the American Girl videos.
This one is good for anyone interested in dancing; however, it tackles topics that work for everyone in the tween range. Sibling rivalry, how you can only succeed with a lot of hard work, and how you shouldn't ever be afraid to be yourself. Is it great entertainment for mom? Not necessarily, but I love the values it promotes and it certainly was better to watch than most movies geared toward young kids.
