    a classic

    My 3 year old has fallen in love with classical ballet and we bought this on a whim ... the only ballet DVD in the store. I was worried when we turned it on that she would hate it, but she LOVES it and watches it all the time. I think most children would find it boring and/or difficult to sit through. Definitely has the feel of the 1960s, but doesn't get any better than Fonteyn.
