Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker

Prima Princessa Presents The Nutcracker, a DVD for young children ages 3-6, has just been released in the United Kingdom for Christmas 2012. Enjoy the Birmingham Royal Ballet performing excerpts from The Nutcracker, narrated especially for children by a cartoon fairy-ballerina. Dance along to fun ballet step demonstrations featuring students from the School of American Ballet, the official academy of the New York City Ballet. Created by two ballet-loving mums from the USA, this show appears annually on American TV during the Christmas season.    
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.
It can now be found on for £5.99. For ballerina coloring pages, on-line ballerina games and more visit

  1. I can just see Freddy attempting to do ballet when he watches The Nutcracker - he can certainly do most dances without any problem. xxx
