Beth loves jumping, singing, acrobatics and of course like most little girls Ballet! I was very excited about receiving this Ballet DVD to review as I could just see her dancing around the front room while we were watching it.
I wasn’t wrong, the first time we watched it together and she gave it full attention and there was no dancing …. second time however, she was up and dancing along. Every so often there’s a random pose followed by “look mummy, ballet” and I’m sure it’s from this lovely ballet DVD.
Especially at this time of the year this Nutcracker ballet DVD is great and really helps you get in to the festive spirit of Christmas.
Nutcracker for Kids
The 60 minute DVD is broken up in to sections, narrated by a cartoon ballerina Prima Princessa this is a cut down version of the Nutcracker Ballet performed by the Birmingham Royal Ballet. In between acts there are ballet step demonstrations featuring students from the School of American Ballet, the official academy of the New York City Ballet.
I really like the way this is done so that the story is broken up and explained to you in a simple way. Most of all I love the shots of the little ballerina student’s showing you a few ballet steps along the way, which also encourages your little one to get up and join in if they aren’t already!!
