The animal dancers are stretching and getting limber. A diapered baby "conductor" takes the podium as the audience waits for the ballet to start. Enjoy these short imaginative animated renderings of some impressive moves inspired by George Balanchine, Martha Graham, Pavlova, Pilobolus, and many other great choreographers, accompanied by classic jazz, mambo, and orchestral music by renowned composers. Stimulating, soothing, and full of heart, "Classical Baby" will engage a baby's imagination and sense of wonder, while serving as a wonderful tool for family bonding.
