Prima Princessa: The Nutcracker

Dancing is a part of life at our house. For the last two years Rebecca has had an after school job as a dance asistant at the gym where I work at. She helps every Monday coaching three classes of 3, 4, and 5 year olds. It is one of her favorite things to do teaching and mentoring young girls and their love of ballet and tap. Since Rebecca has become interested in dance she, more than anything, wants to learn the correct moves and configure choreography for the Christmas recital. Her latest and greatest tool being Prima Princessa.

We already own the DVD for Prima Princessa presents Swan Lake, and now we have the newest Prima Princessa presents The Nutcracker. My girls have seen several performances of this magnificent ballet. It is really nice to have a DVD that breaks down the steps to their basic form for young girls. It is even better at our house becaus Rebecca is learning coorect form and moves so that she can help reteach at her dance classes on Mondays.

The Nutcracker is designed by the mom-preneur team of Stephanie and Mary Kate who are dedicated to bringing the beauty and magic of ballet into the lives of children everywhere. The 40 minute show joins Prima Princessa as she takes a holiday adventure filled with snow fairies, toy soldiers and sweets abundant, Performed by the esteemed San Fransisco Ballet children can get up and learn real ballet steps from actual students at the School of American Ballet in New York City.

This is a wonderful gift for the dancer in your life. With the upcoming holiday season approaching this would be a great way to introduce the magic of ballet to your yong one. It is geared to the ages of 3-6, and of course 11 yr old girls who want to learn choreography. I think that Prima Princessa and Rebecca make a great team as she ventures forth from the smallest of plies to the grandest of jetes.
