The cartoon fairy ballerina Prima Princessa takes a group of pre-school children on a magical Christmas journey to see a live performance of “The Nutcracker” performed by England’s world famous Birmingham Royal Ballet in this Parents Choice Award-winning program. Prima Princessa delightfully narrates the story so children can understand the plot. Between acts the kids get up and dance, learning simple ballet steps from students at SAB, official academy of the New York City Ballet. Additional fun including a Holiday party with cookie and gingerbread house decorating, Christmas crafting, and Holiday Freeze Dancing!
If you have a daughter that loves ballet or if you are thinking about having her take dance or ballet lessons, you might want to grab this DVD. This DVD is also perfect to introduce the little girl or girls in your life to the world famous story “The Nutcracker” during the Holiday season.
A few of my favorite things about this DVD is that the story has where a little girl narrates and explains on a level that three year old can understand as to what’s going on the in the performance. This is a great feature as sometimes ballets and plays can get a little confusing. Another thing I like is that instead of going through the entire story at once, there a short breaks in between that teach the viewer ballet moves by showing them done by children their own age and some older.
My kids both seemed to enjoy the bonus features which included Holiday Crafts, Cookie Decorating, Freeze Dancing, and much more! Overall, I expect lots of twirling and whirling to be going on in my house and maybe some more interest in other ballets such as Swan Lake and perhaps Sleeping Beauty too!
If you are looking for a sophisticated yet fun way to introduce ballet and the Nutcracker, I’d recommend checking out this DVD! Note that runtime is approximately 60 minutes long. And you better have some tutus on hands when you if plan on gifting this during the Holiday season! A dancer just might be born!
