Doesn't teach ballet positions actually taught in beginner ballet

Summary: This was awful. There are no actual positions being taught. You just swing the controller around so it can track your arm movement. The balancing part was somewhat interesting for my 5 year old, but we couldn't set the balance board for actual weight.
Summary: My daughter was delighted to have a ballerina game until we couldn't get the Wii board to interface with the software (she didn't weigh enough for some reason to activate the board - we don't have this problem with Wii Fit).
Summary: This game is awful. My sister was in ballet for years when she was a child and teen and she couldn't even make sense of thise mess. Read the book and tried many times to figure it out to no avail.
Summary: We got a Wii for Christmas and my sister threw this in as an extra game because I am a ballet fan and recreational ballet student. She was hesitant to purchase it before Christmas because there were no reviews out, but decided to go for it. Really wish there had been some earlier reviews.
Summary: I thought (as the other reviewers have said) that this would give SOME kind of lesson in ballet. I was a ballerina when I was younger and have looked forward to getting my daughter into it as well.
Summary: After buying/playing the wii fit plus, i can see this came COULD have had SO much potential! Being an ex-dancer I thought this would me more like a ballet workout where you use position/exercises/stretches and the balance board in combination with ballet. Boy was I wrong.
Summary: First off, I don't know how other WII dancing games are, but it's not really dancing - and in fairness, I guess how could it be, right? The game breaks down into 2 sections - positions and movements.
Summary: In theory, this COULD be a good game. It would be nice, for example, if there were some sort of video instructions indicating what motion is to be made. I expected this to go through the basic ballet positions, and maybe progress to more movement around the floor off the balance board.
