American Girl Isabelle DancesThis live action American Girl movie has a great message for elementary school aged girls. Individuality, creativity and confidence. A positive movie experience that will boost self esteem. Remember this is a dance movie so be prepared for the non stop pop music. As for the Blu-ray quality… it lacks. The lighting is dull and the colors seem flat. You don’t get very much detail in the faces but here and there you will notice improved clarity.

Isabelle (Erin Pitt) is an inspired dancer with a flair for fashion design. She’s thrilled to be studying ballet at a prestigious performing arts school, but is surrounded by talented classmates—and she can’t help feeling that she’s always in the shadow of her “perfect” older sister, Jade (Grace Davidson). So when her idol, a famous ballerina, encourages her to audition for a professional ballet, Isabelle isn’t sure she can land the role. And when a competitive classmate starts pointing out Isabelle’s every mistake, her confidence sinks even further. Can she find the courage to step into the spotlight and discover her own way to shine? Melora Hardin of the hit television show “The Office” also stars in this “sweet story that teaches the benefits of hard work, determination and focus” (Julie Kertes, L.A. Parent Magazine).
