"This is a really cute dvd. I would guess the students are anywhere from 5-8 years old in each segment.
Each collection shows how to do correct movements, gives the correct name of actions performed and creates a little dance part at the end.
I believe it to be a good way to see if your child really wants to take classes, to practice positions learned in dance school and also to excersise.
I also think it is a good way to remember positions learned during the summer break from Dance centers."
Good for non-beginners

"I bought this DVD for my 4 year old. She enjoys dancing around the house, as well as watching a yoga video that I picked up. This DVD was a bit too advanced for her. Although the teacher shows each position, it still goes too fast for a little one who has never had a dance class. My daughter did enjoy the jazz section, and I caught her trying many of their moves. This DVD is great if your little one already has a little dance background. Be prepared to have tap shoes for the tap section, as the teacher focuses on the sounds that a tap shoe makes. We don't have tap shoes and were practicing on the carpet, making it difficult to fully appreciate the tapping. I will probably put this DVD away and bring it out again when my little one is closer to 5."
Great DVD for aspiring young dancers!

My two-and-a-half year old loves this DVD!
The instructor demonstrates each step clearly and then invites the children watching to practice that step with the class on-screen. Each routine is broken down into multiple, easy-to-follow bits and is definately an excellent introduction to dacing in all three styles.
My daughter loves to perform the routines, even away from the DVD (like in the middle of the supermarket!) and that shows me that she has truly learned them.
I highly, highly recommend this DVD for the aspiring young dancer."

"I bought this video for my almost 3 year old. She can't do the moves, but I didn't expect her to. I knew she would simply enjoy watching it with occassional participation, and the exposure would help her with dance classes in the near future. She DOES like this video, and so does my 9 year old (but she doesn't know I'm telling you this). The reason this video doesn't get 5 stars is because Miss Mary doesn't smile!!!! The best way to teach a child is by example, and Miss Rosemary could benefit by lightening up a little and showing us and her class her shining pearly whites! It's okay to have fun and look like it, too!"
