On February 20th, Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment released Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Ballet Adventures on DVD.  If you love Dora, you’ll want to check out this fun DVD!  You can purchase the DVD online or in stores, retailing for $16.99.


Dora is getting ready for her big dance show in Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Ballet Adventures, a compilation containing four of Dora’s dancing episodes.  Help Dora as she moves and grooves her way to Dance School to find her ballet slippers before her recital begins.  Later, Dora and Boots lead a musical parade, have a fun-filled fiesta and celebrate Boots’ birthday!


Dora’s Ballet Adventure

Dora’s dance class is getting ready for a special dance recital and her whole family’s there to watch her perform.  They just need to wait for the Delivery Truck to deliver their ballet slippers.  But the Delivery Duck brings scuba flippers instead of ballet slippers!  Dora and Boots must get the slippers before the recital begins.

Dora, La Músico

C’mon and join the musical parade!  Dora and Boots are leading a parranda over the Piano Bridge and through the Singing Gate to free the instruments that were locked up by the evil Señor Shhh!

The Super Silly Fiesta

Dora and Boots are invited to the Big Red Chicken’s Super Silly Fiesta where there will be silly snacks, silly games, silly hats and even silly dancing.  But, the Big Red Chicken lost his party cake!  Dora and Boots set off to save the fiesta.  After searching forever, they find the cake in the silliest place Big Red Chicken could have left it – on his head!


It’s Boots’ birthday!  Dora tells him that all of his friends are waiting at her house to give Boots a big party.  To reach Dora’s house, they’ll have to climb a long flight of Stairs and cross the Troll Bridge.

I think Dora the Explorer is a great program for kids!  Not only does she teach academic things, but she also teaches basic Spanish words through songs and games.  I look forward to the next Dora the Explorer DVD that Nickelodeon comes out with.  A special thanks to Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment for this DVD review opportunity!

I received a copy of “Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Ballet Adventures” on DVD from Nickelodeon and Paramount Home Entertainment to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
