Barbie in the Pink Shoes & Jenelle Manzi of the New York City Ballet

Laurel BallerinaNothing says ballerina like pink tutus and slippers. All over the world, little girls love to dance and dream of becoming real-life ballerinas. And with a little help from mom and dad, their dreams can come true!

I am raising ballerinas. Two of them. They are constantly twirling around the house and begging for more ballet classes.

My girls especially love Barbie and combining Barbie with ballerina’s is just perfect.

Barbie in the Pink Shoes

Twelve years, 25 titles and 110 million+ DVDs sold to date, American icon Barbie continues her reign of top entertainment for kids with the Spring 2013 release, Barbie in The Pink Shoes DVD, and accompanying toy line.

On February 27th, Barbie celebrated the DVD launch by teaming up with professional ballerina Jenelle Manzi of the New York City Ballet to give your readers tips on making little dancing diva’s dreams come true. From ballet class to the big stage, Jenelle will guide you through the many steps of becoming a real ballerina.

I had the chance to ask Jenelle a few questions and she answered them here:

ABOUT “BARBIE IN THE PINK SHOES:”

Dance your way to a magical adventure with Barbie™ as Kristyn™, a ballerina with big dreams! When she tries on a pair of sparkling pink shoes, she and her best friend, Hailey™, are whisked away to a fantastical ballet world. There, Kristyn™ discovers she must dance in her favorite ballets in order to defeat an evil Snow Queen. With performances to the legendary Giselle and Swan Lake ballets, it’s a wonderful journey where if you dance with your heart, dreams come true!

ABOUT JENELLE MANZI:

Jenelle was born in Ridgewood, New Jersey and began her dance training at the age of four. In 1999, Ms. Manzi began studying at the School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet. While a student, Ms. Manzi originated a featured role in Christopher d’Amboise’s Tribute, as part of the SAB 2005 Annual Workshop. In December 2005, Ms. Manzi became an apprentice with NYCB, and in February 2006, she joined the Company as a member of the corps de ballet.

  15. I learned that it’s good to start out at a small school to see how your child likes ballet, and then look for a bigger school with more rigorous scheduling if they really want to pursue it.
