Resurrección Mexican Folk – 12:30 PM

Since its inception in the year 1961, Resurrección Mexican Folk (formerly known as Ballet Folkórico Resurrección) has grown to over 40 dancers ranging in age from 4 to 21. This youth dance company developed an interest by its Artistic Director, Rafael Valpuesta , to provide a different style of Mexican folk dance to the children and youth of his community. Being a dancer himself in various professional dance companies throughout Los Angeles, Mr. Valpuesta recognized that Mexican folk dance was evolving to incorporate other dance disciplines involving a more theatrical style. Mr. Valpuesta has incorporated intensive ballet training into regular rehearsals. This has marked the definite style and direction that Resurrección Mexican Folk is known for.
