DVD Review & Giveaway - Prima Princess Swan Lake



About the DVD

Prima Princessa Presents Swan Lake” available March 2, 2010. For Ages 3-6
This DVD is designed by two stay at home mom-entrepreneurs on a mission to bring the beauty and magic of ballet into the lives of children everywhere. It 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. 

The 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 perform 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. More information about this DVD can be found at: www.PrimaPrincessa.com
My Take on The DVD
I have two divas within my household which are definitely princesses in their own right. They love to dance their own dance style, so I was thinking that they would enjoy this, but I was amazed as they started to watch how much they were engaged in the film.

Both of my girls had their eyes glued to the television and as they watched they loved trying out the dances that they were being taught. As an educator myself, I loved seeing the educational components within the film. This education was a true creative arts gem. It provided the opportunity for kids to not only learn about dance, but also about music and themselves.

By the end of the DVD my eldest daughter was telling me the story of Swan Lake as if she had seen it many times. So kudos to the moms who developed this DVD! Parents with kids who like to be creative and/or music and dance will love this DVD.

I truly encourage all of you to check it out today!

If this DVD sounds like something that your princess would like, you can find it over at Amazon!
