It's never too soon to introduce ballet to children, especially when it is as wonderful and accessible as the scenes from The Nutcracker. This is such a child friendly DVD which makes children want to join in and dance along and is a lovely introduction to this classical ballet.
The story of The Nutcracker is explained through the fun narration of the cartoon fairy (and the fairy talks with an English accent) so even the youngest children understand the story behind the performance.
The introduction to simple ballet moves is an interactive element that the kids really enjoy. They will be performing a passe and a pirouette before you know it!! The DVD has some fun festive extras too.
Best friends Stephanie Troeller and Mary Kate Mellow are the women behind Prima Princessa.
“Taking a young child to the ballet can be not only expensive, but it is difficult for toddlers to sit still for a 3-hour performance. Our shows are designed to expose 3-6 year old children to classical ballet through a fun interactive, animated, and educational experience, where they are encouraged to get up and dance along,” says Stephanie.
