"Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcrakcer" DVD Review

I am a fan of all the arts, and I try to encourage my kids to appreciate beauty in all its wonderful forms. Ballet is like poetry in motion, and I could sit for hours watching the dancers bring to life their characters with their fluid movements. The Nutcracker has always been one of my favorite ballets. But for kids, sitting still for that long is not easy, especially when there are no words for them to listen to that helps them follow along with the story. Well, Prima  Princessa has come up with a way to encourage children to learn more about this amazing art form in a way that is exciting and  interesting.

 The "Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker" DVD is a full length film that tells you the story of Clara and her many adventures. But with a few added bonuses.  They show lots of scenes from the real ballet, but explain what is happening to make it easy for little ones to follow along. And in between scenes, they show your little ballerina how to do some of the dance steps themselves, which really makes them feel like they are a part of it. Through the whole DVD, you are guided by their fairy ballerina who makes sure the whole experience is lots of fun.

The DVD is available for only $6.99. It makes a great holiday gift for girls that your whole family will enjoy watching it together. Check out their website to learn more about all the ballerina DVDs they have available. While you're there, your kids can download free coloring pages and play games online. The movie is available to order through Amazon. Check them out today and put a smile on your little dancer's face.
