Make this holiday season special for your young ones by introducing them to the beauty of The Nutcracker through the art of tap dance. Musiquita duo Blanca Cecilia González and Jesse Elder will be joined by a world-class tap dancer and bassist for Nutcracker tap dance arrangements, Musiquita originals, and children’s classics. You might even pick up a few clickety-clack steps yourself and dream of sugar-plum fairies all night long.

About the Artists


Husband and wife duo Blanca Cecilia González and Jesse Elder have created Musiquita, a playful exploration of music in Spanish and English. The duo performs original compositions as well as classical, jazz, Latin folk, children’s classics, and popular music styles. As a bilingual Spanish-English family with two young children, González and Elder make learning engaging and enjoyable. Sharing their own experiences in a relaxed and supportive environment, they present easy ways to incorporate other cultures into everyday life. Together, they inspire children and big people alike to sing, dance, and move along with them as they navigate their way through a diverse musical landscape. González holds a Master of Music Degree from The Juilliard School, and Elder is the former Music Director of Postmodern Jukebox.
