Is It Any Good?
Charming and entertaining, ANGELINA BALLERINA: SUPERSTAR SISTERS is chock-full of lessons in dance and life. Here Angelina and friends work hard to create original dance routines and solve problems in stage productions while Angelina also faces frustrations at home. Preschoolers who love dance and art will enjoy learning how to waltz and improvise, while siblings with tagalong little brothers or sisters will find relatable problems as they watch Angelina work through her frustrations with Polly. There are some sweet moments, too, when Angelina realizes she's been a bit hard on Polly and tries harder to appreciate her, and later, when she takes her out for a big day. With the added reinforcement that practice makes perfect with dance, this is a winning combination of realistic lessons that nurture an interest in fine art.
