Ballerina Movies For Kids
My daughter has recently started ballet, she loves all things ballet so I was on the hunt for ballerina movies for kids. I was so happy to be given the opportunity to review Angelina Ballerina Ballet Princess on DVD. The day it arrived we brought it in the car to watch on the way to ballet class. Although I couldn’t see it, I could hear it and really enjoyed the little songs. Both of my daughter’s were captivated and watching Angelina’s every move. Even though this DVD is designed for young children they used the proper ballet terminology which was very educational for both of us. So when she’s in ballet class and her teacher is referring to specific moves she is supposed to do she seemed to understand better because she had been watching Angelina!
Angelinas Big Part
In school Angelina (a cute little mouse) is working on a dance, Angelinas big part is a big role for her. Each of her friends have a different role. The ballet is based on a fairy tale about a princess and the enchanted pillow when the princess ballerina rests her head on the pillow she will never dance again. Angelina gets worried because she doesn’t want to be the princess and never dance again. She makes a deal with her teacher to go through rehearsal and see how she feels. Once she gets under the sleeping spell, she tries to sleep walk to get back on stage but is sent behind the scenes and complains that she has to sleep. She wants to switch parts with someone else but then she realizes that the forest friends will break the spell and she will be able to wake up and dance. She does the most beautiful dance. The Prince comes and they all dance together. She realized that everyone was needed in their own roles to be able to have the ballet be successful!
Real Ballet Positions
Isabella loved to watch the real ballet positions even though we couldn’t pronounce most of the names it was cute to watch her try to do the moves just like Angelina and her little friends. The other 4 episodes Angelina and Polly’s Two Hour Show, Angelina’s Fancy Tutu, Angelina and the Carnival and Angelina’s Indian Lunchtime were very entertaining. Needless to say, my little ballerina wants to be dressed up in her ballet attire and dance right along with Angelina ALL the time. You can purchase this DVD for $14.99.
