DVD release: Barbie In the Pink Shoes

If you have a little princess- Barbie- or ballerina-loving youngster running around your house, you might welcome the release of this new movie.

My niece still watches last year's release, Barbie: The Princess and the Popstar, over and over again. We've both been anxiously awaiting this new release — but for different reasons, of course. My niece's reason? Well, she loves anything pink, pretty and Barbie-related at the moment. And my reason? I think I'm ready to get some new catchy Barbie songs stuck in my head.

The premise
Kristyn, a dancer enrolled in ballet school, dreams of joining an established dance company one day. She longs to dance like her idol Tara, the troupe’s perennial lead. But after accidentally ripping her shoes in rehearsal, Kristyn’s best friend, Hailey, drags her to the costume department to get a new pair. Once there, Kristyn discovers a magical pink pair that takes both her and Hailey into a ballet world ruled by an evil Snow Queen. Kristyn and Hailey must dance through their favourite ballets to defeat the Snow Queen and discover a way home in time for the big performance. Inspired by her magical journey, Kristyn auditions to the iconic dances in Giselle and Swan Lake but with her own flourishes, wowing the big ballet company. Kristyn learns that when you dance from your heart your dreams can come true.
