Prima Princess Presents Swan Lake DVD

We were lucky enough to be sent a copy of the DVD "Prima Princess Presents Swan Lake" to review!!
This is a hip new twist on learning about ballet, featuring the Paris Opera Ballet and Students from School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center, Official Academy of New York City Ballet. This 40 minute DVD is a cool, fun, beautiful show with a brain. Prima Princessa, an animated fairy ballerina, magically transports a group of little girls to see the Paris Opera Ballet performs select segments of Swan Lake. In between acts, the children return home to learn simple ballet steps which are playfully shown mixed into colorful montages of toys, animals, children and young dancers from the School of American Ballet.

Mary Kate Mellow and Stephanie Troeller are both stay-at-home moms who despite no prior movie-making experience teamed up to produce this show. They were both inspired by their children's love of dance. They both live in Montclair, NJ. Be sure to check out their blog to read about the journey of two movie-making moms!!

So as you can see by the pictures below our 4 year old dancing diva is trying to become a graceful ballerina!! Shewas so captivated by this movie!! The short segments of actual ballet lessons, scenes from the Paris Opera’s performance of Swan Lake, and clips of little girls dancing in tutus trying to imitate the dancers was enough variety to keep Ella interested! She was up trying to mimic every move!! This was a movie that I even enjoyed watching! We were able to learn the some ballerina terminology (like pirouettes, arabesques, and jetes)! Ella loved the animated fairy that magically transported the preschool girls to the Opera! She can't watch the movie without dressing the part and twirling around the room!!

So if you are looking for an instructional and entertaining DVD to introduce your young child to ballet then check out Prima Princess Presents Swam Lake!!! With easy to learn dance moves your little ballerina will love it.
