Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (1):

Based on the books by Helen Craig and Katharine Holabird, and following the successful series on PBS Sprout, ANGELINA BALLERINA: LOVE TO DANCE is a fluid and entertaining movie for tiny dancers. Though viewers who are not familiar with terms like "arabesque" and "pas-de-deux" might find Angelina's interest in dance more of an obsession than a hobby, young ballerinas will adore watching the moves come to life on the screen.

The educational components embedded in the movie might give young viewers a leg up on dance class. And it's easy to love a group of enthusiastic mouselings who get excited about dance practice, recitals, and music. Boy mouselings get into the act too, unafraid to show off their ballet skills. Throw in a few Pre-K appropriate lessons about honesty and problem solving, and you have a mousterpiece.
