Los Lupeños Academy

The Cashion Cultural Legacy (CCL) is committed to sustaining the preservation, presentation, and education of Mexican folk culture through dance.  In honor and recognition of Dr. Susan V. Cashion and her many contributions to the dance world, the CCL pursues this mission by hosting two professional Mexican folk dance companies (Los Lupeños de San José & Los Lupeños Juvenil), offering accessible classes to the community (Los Lupeños Academy), operating an artist exchange of dancers, directors, and choreographers between California and México, and researching and documenting the art form.

Our Academy dance classes are given in conjunction with the School of Arts and Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza in San José, California.
