This is an excellant DVD for an absolute beginner. As an adult who has just begun ballet training, I had no knowledge of the basic ballet positions. This DVD helps you to get familiar with the basic positions in ballet. My only gripe is that the movements aren't put into combinations or practiced continously so that you can practice along. An extensive history of ballet is given in between each teaching segment, but there is an interactive menu so you can skip those parts. If you need to know the basic ballet positions, then this is a good DVD (and the price isn't bad either). They also review arms, eyes, and body alignment. Plies, releves, and arabesques are also reviewed. NO combinations at all.
I thought I would be getting an instruction DVD, not one made like an after-school-special! It's made like a little story, not a regular how-to DVD
