With its focus on art-based problem solving, Angelina Ballerina is in a class of its own when it comes to promoting a love of music, dancing, and performance mixed with everyday preschool concerns. This bunch of episodes moves past ballet and takes on rock and hip-hop, so for kids who might not be interested in ballet, this could be a great introduction to other, more accessible art forms.

For kids who love dance and music, Angelina and her pals work through a variety of performances and issues that make them better dancers but also better friends and students. There's a particularly well-done depiction of the balance kids must learn to tend to their own self-driven impulses while also considering the good of the group. Parents can appreciate that these lessons are taught right alongside great dance moves and stories that encourage movement, creativity, and imagination.
