Having spent a number of years watching very young and aspiring dancers struggling with their first steps, this video appears very special in bringing a well known story to life and creating on screen what could be that imaginary world and showing it .. and then showing step, by step how the dance steps can be learnt and put together in a sequence that would be enjoyable and mimic the actions of the dancers in the fully pictorial animation.
Everyone we have shown this to with small children (and not just girls!) has been quite captivated by the degree of detail given in the step and movement lessons pictured. The 'behind the scenes' sections were also much appreciated, particularly making fairy wings and showing the costume specialists at work. Quite inspirational!
