Movie Reviews

For Ballet Newbies!!!!!!!
05/25/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellant DVD for an absolute beginner. As an adult who has just begun ballet training, I had no knowledge of the basic ballet positions. This DVD helps you to get familiar with the basic positions in ballet.
My only gripe is that the movements aren't put into combinations or practiced continously so that you can practice along. An extensive history of ballet is given in between each teaching segment, but there is an interactive menu so you can skip those parts.
If you need to know the basic ballet positions, then this is a good DVD (and the price isn't bad either). They also review arms, eyes, and body alignment. Plies, releves, and arabesques are also reviewed. NO combinations at all."
This dvd is totally for kids

(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you have kids that fancy taking ballet classes, then this dvd is perfect. However, if you are over the age of 13 and want a dance video for yourself, you might want to pick out something else. Perhaps something that doesn't have references to "dancing like a fairy princess" like this one does."
I'm Afraid Not All Beginners are Interested

(1 out of 5 stars)

"As the other reviewer says, this is solely for the very beginners. Even so, not all first beginners are interested. Not only there are no combinations, most of the basic movements and positions are done by rather amateurish ballerinas. Even for the professional ones, which are scarce anyway, don't expect anything anywhere near the Kirov, De L'opera de Paris or Royal Ballet... The overall production is so and so. It takes quite an effort to finish this 50 min long DVD. I'm afraid few including the beginners will return to it, if at all."
