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). The exercises and performances are cute but there's no logic between what the characters do and how the player moves. In fact - if the object is to follow the moves, not very easy, even with an adult with some dance training.
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. Thought my little girl would love it, but if grown-ups who have done ballet can't figure it out, there is little hope for her to enjoy it. She plays Star Wars with the boys more than this game! Save your money!
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. After testing out the Wii Fit Board with Wii Fit Sports, I was excited to see what a ballet game would offer. Sadly, not much.
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. I have already thought some basic steps and was thrilled when I saw this game as we were getting the WII for Christmas. It gives no direction at all. I will be trading it in.
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. Like the other reviewers, I can agree that there is no instruction as to correct position except for a dumb dancing doll in which you attempt to copy.
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. Once you've passed enough lessons (at least 20 in each, not sure how many as more are unlocked as you move thru them) you can then choose to dance a performance number.
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.
