Recently I was requested to review Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake DVD and of course, I jumped at the chance. My three year old daughter loves to dance and I am looking forward to sending her to a ballet school when she turns 4. The 40-minute video is about the story of Swan Lake, performed by the Paris Opera Ballet and is narrated by a lovely and chic fairy called Prima Princessa. When I played the enchanting DVD to my daughter, she was mesmerised. To be honest, even I enjoyed watching it. I also got to learn a thing or two about ballet. I know what “Piroutte”, “Jete”, “Pas de Chat” means now 🙂
My daughter tried to copy the dance moves when she saw the children in tutus playing and dancing in the video. She was also captivated by the Dance of The Baby Swans scene. After we finished watching it, my daughter tells me that she wants to learn ballet and she has been twirling around the house doing piroutte 🙂 My daughter even wants me to play the Prima Princessa Swan Lake DVD over and over again.
What I loved about this DVD is that each ballet position segment is repeated twice to teach the children about the various ballet steps. The dance moves demonstrated by the students of School of the American Ballet are easy to follow. I also love that the Swan Lake performance was divided into a few chapters and there are between acts by little ballerinas jumping and dancing in their lovely tutus, tiaras and earrings. This certainly makes it more interesting for the children.
Prima Princessa Swan Lake DVD is just perfect for children who love to dance. It also makes a great gift for ballet lovers. I have not seen such a DVD here in Kuala Lumpur. Thanks to 2 creative mommies who created this fabulous DVD and make learning ballet so much fun and hip. Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake is ranked #2 kids ballet DVD on Amazon.com.

I would like to thank Mary Kate Mellow and Stephanie Troeller for giving me the opportunity to review the fun and educational Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake DVD.
