Can you ever get too much of the Nutcracker? This arrangement of Mother Ginger and Her Children brings a less familiar and rarely arrangement dance from the the Nutcracker to your students. This energetic, joyful, and humorous movement will delight your students as they imagine Mother Ginger's Children emerging from her dress to dance and play.  This is a challenging duet for two violins on an intermediate to advanced level. The arrangement is just over 2 minutes in length.
