Mexican folkloric dance is a stylized, choreographed art form designed to display the cultural diversity of Mexico with energy, heart, and intricate technique. Rooted in the post-revolutionary period, folkloric dance blossomed in the 1960s, becoming a thriving phenomenon in Mexico and the United States, and is now performed all over the world. Produced and directed by Olga Najera-Ramirez, a professor of Anthropology at UC Santa Cruz, this film traces the history of folkloric dance through the life and artistic productions of the internationally acclaimed artist, dancer and choreographer, Rafael Zamarripa, a former member of the Ballet Folklórico de Mexico.
