Today is Serenity’s very first.. official ballet recital. I mean the BIG one. On stage and everything. I couldn’t be more excited for her and she was ready to go before bed last night The better half of this afternoon will be spent primping and prepping for the big event.. and the it is over for the summer. Boooo! In the spirit, I wanted to end with a bang.. and what better than a giveaway!!
Prima Princessa is an amazing set of ballet DVD’s for kids that opens their eyes to the real side of theater and ballet while allowing them the opportunity to participate.
“The producers of the “Prima Princessa” DVD series, Stephanie Troeller and Mary Kate Mellow, are both mothers of dance loving daughters, who were the original source of inspiration for the series. Each DVD in the series has the cartoon fairy ballerina Prima Princessa escort a group of pre-schoolers on a magical journey to see a live performance of a classic storybook ballet, delightfully narrated so children may fully understand the plot. Between acts, they return home and in fun colorful montages of toys, animals, and kids, they learn ballet steps from students at the School of American Ballet, the official academy of the New York City Ballet.”
Coming in the Spring of 2011, Prima Princessa will release a new DVD called, Prima Princess presents Sleeping Beauty.
So, what did we really think?
I thought the entire concept was really great. It puts a fun twist on the traditional ballet theater and really makes it fun for kids. Serenity loved to dance along. She was repeated the words and concepts and doing her best to review the skills. I am so glad that she has really jumped into the dance world and I think this will be an excellent outlet for her as she grows. So… now it is time to release the first photo of MY prima princessa…
