DVD: Baby Ballet
We've got something a little different this time. Our first dvd! I watched Baby Ballet at a friend's house with her 4 and 6 year olds (boy and girl respectively). Their mom said they watch it over and over and really enjoy following along. She is delighted that they're getting exercise by doing something that engages their minds and that they enjoy.
The program includes warm-ups, stretches, practice, and across-the-floor combinations, and is taught by Rosemary Boross, who has created other children's ballet programs. The instructor, assistant, and a small group of able, adorable very young dancers go through twenty "chapters" of various movements. The pace is slow and even, and the instructions clear.
Stated ages: four to six
Other ballet videos for totz and kidz, including more by Boross.
