This set should be about half the price it is, and it would still be making everyone involved rich at that price.
The children and teenaged instructor (complete with awkward braces and a "leotard" right out of a 70s latin children's show) all wear permanent, pained and forced "smiles" that look more like grimmaces of pain throughout the video, nodding their heads enthusiastically. "Barney Kids" look more convincing in their forced good cheer. I imagine the kids received a one time, small payment for their efforts in this video, and the promise that it would be their foot in the door for future acting and dancing roles on their rise to fame and fortune. I can just imagine the "instructor" showing the Bella Dancerella DVD as part of her portfolio in several years as she tries to "break through".
Be warned, the *music* is among the worst children's Ear-Worms I've heard recently. It is some acid-house beat/rave euro-club remix pseudo-style, complete with a voice-box reverb over the girl's singing, and endlessly electronically repetitive. There are breaks from this torture for unintelligble dialog, mostly between the instructor and a puppet monkey or two giant dancing stuffed teddy bears dressed as German children.
The kit itself consists of a pair of *flimsy* fake ballerina slippers, a balance bar that is basically purple and pink snap-together PVC pipe, and a vinyl "dance mat" about 2 feet across and 7 feet long that has ballet "steps" laid out on it, plus the 30 minute long DVD of ultimate parental torture (which has the look and production feel of a 30 minute Mentos commercial).Read more ›

The bar is nice, and I suppose the mat will come in handy for reviewing the basic positions. But the DVD... it's just awful. The music is painfully bad. Read morePublished on November 30, 2006 by M. Loggins
