It's that time of year again!  Time to start making those holiday gift lists.  Here at ABCD Diaries we'd like to make that process a little less painful:)  We will bringing you our annual Holiday Gift Guide in which we hand pick the coolest gifts for the whole family and everyone else on that gift list this year.  From now until mid-December we will be highlighting these wonderful gifts.

Today, we are bringing you a great gift idea for the ballerina princess on your list:  "Prima Princessa's Ballet for Beginners"!


"Thanks to the charming, illustrated Prima Princessa’s Ballet for Beginners, budding ballerinas can enjoy a privileged peek into the dancer's world. The fairy Prima Princessa ushers readers into New York City's famous School of American Ballet (SAB), the official academy of the New York City Ballet. Through stunning photography, they'll enter SAB's classrooms and get an intimate look at how elite dancers train. The visit begins in a pre-ballet class, moves to SAB's Children's Ballet Division (11-year-olds), and finally arrives at the near-professional Advanced Ballet classes (16-year-olds). Along the way, newcomers to ballet will learn about the school's dress code; see close-up images students demonstrating all the basic positions. (There's also a glimpse at boy's class, too!) The on-the-page performance is absolutely inspiring, with every dancer in perfect, elegant form: all photos and instructions have been checked and approved by the Directors at SAB for accuracy. And most exciting of all is watching a girl get ready to go on stage for a dress rehearsal, applying her makeup and preparing her costume. It's the stuff of which dreams are made, and is a uniquely beautiful and inspiring introduction to ballet!"
