When my daughter was younger, she wanted to be a ballerina. I think most girls go through this phase. And why wouldn’t they? Wearing a tutu is fun (not that I’d know). If you have a daughter who dreams of being the lead dancer in “Swan Lake,” she’ll love the brand new ballerina DVD and corresponding doll that teaches little ballerinas all the basics.

Barbie in The Pink Shoes” is a new movie for aspiring ballerinas. Barbie has teamed up with NYC Ballet’s Jenelle Manzi to inspire ballerinas across the globe .

I had the opportunity to interview, Manzi. Watch the video to hear what she had to say about ballet and the new DVD.

barbieI’d like to offer one Mocha Dad reader the opportunity to win a “Barbie in the Pink Shoes” prize pack which includes the DVD, Barbie doll, and other goodies. To enter the giveaway, answer the following questions in the comments section:
