Since its inception in the year 1961, Resurrección Mexican Folk has grown to over 40 dancers. 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 dances disciplines involving a more theatrical style. With the help of Rocio Ponce, intensive ballet training was incorporated into regular rehearsals. This has marked the definite style and direction that Resurrección Mexican Folk is known for.
