The fine arts have a universal appeal that offers an opportunity for forging inter-generational connections. Classical Baby is a three DVD set in which each DVD focuses on a single classic art form: dance, visual art and music. Each animated program is brimming with catchy melodies, brilliant colors, and fun animated animal characters that appeal to babies and toddlers as well as famous musical pieces, revered artwork and varied dance styles that encourage adults to share their love of the arts with a special child. "The Music Show" presents musical masterpieces from artists as varied as Bach, Mozart, Villa Lobos and Bartok and runs the gamut from large orchestral pieces to opera and intimate chamber music. Animated polar bears, toddling babies and violin-playing crickets ensure that little ones are fully engaged and entertained. "The Art Show" focuses in close on masterpieces from famous artists like Monet, Hopper and Degas and includes a snowy romp through a sculpture garden showcasing works from the 2500's BC to the 20th century AD. Accompanying the images are famous musical themes, ranging from classical to jazz and ragtime, and animation that allows modern artwork to spin and encourages cute little frogs to hop right into a Monet canvas. "The Dance Show" gives free reign to the imagination with animated animal characters performing dances inspired by great choreographers like Balanchine, Robbins, and Pilobolus in styles reminiscent of classical ballet, the Broadway musical and the silver screen. Adults may laugh aloud when animated sheep dance "Sheep to Sheep" ala Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, but the beauty is that a classic moment has been shared and a connection forged between the generations. (Ages 6 months to 4 years)
