    Default Best instructional/enjoyable ballet video for little girls (beginners)

    I was just wondering if there was a video out there that is both enjoyable and instructional for a little one to prance around to?

    Has anyone come across a really good one?

    I'm not sure of any DVDs but my eldest started ballet at the beginning of this year and watched some YouTube videos of kids doing ballet.

    I've been googling and saw that Bella Dancerella was popular a few years back but difficult to find a stockist now.

    Not after anything too serious, but I know she's interested in learning a little as well as having fun.

    Lessons may be on the horizon, but trying to put off for one more year. I checked out some of the prices of the local ballet schools the other day and some of their 'kits' were around $500 alone. Lessons not included
    @BigRedV and anyone else - can I ask what a reasonable price is to pay for dance kit (leotard, shoes, etc.) and for the lessons themselves? Feel free not to respond if you do not wish to share. There is one place in town that encourages little girls to leave if they aren't "ballerina material" no matter how much fun they are having...scary.

    Dancing is a very expensive "sport"

    I'm not sure how much the ballet lessons were as she does 3 dance classes a week. I'm thinking it was $100 term + GST so about $11 lesson.

    The uniform is not compulsory, but I bought her a black leotard and black tights for her lessons, probably cost me about $40 but has lasted all year and will use them next year. The ballet shoes were $35 I think but I'm not 100% as I bought them in January.

    There was no "joining fee" or anything.

    I just pay for the lessons and that's it. The dress hire for the concert was $40.

    ETA - my daughter's dance teachers just want everyone participate and to love dancing like they love dancing. It's not competitive or b1tchy at all and they are just so amazing and lovely there, it's the only reason I fork out the money.

    They have troupe try outs but nobody is excluded from the dancing lessons if they're not good enough. How rude!

    That seems to be quite reasonable compared to what I've seen so far - thank you for giving me some idea of what is expected. Hoping one of the ones I haven't checked out yet will be the one! I think the most expensive one was a chain one.

    How old is your little girl?
    My DD is 4 and she has done 'ballet' for 2 years now. The lessons are $165 for a term - she doesn't need a uniform yet, but will next year. She is doing the concert this year which is expensive - $70 for costume hire and then $38/adult for a ticket.
    If your DD is young she may enjoy 'The Fairies' DVDs. They do a lot of singing and ballet (I think there is even a dance special).
