About Los Lupeños de San José (loslupenos.org)

Los Lupeños de San José is a Mexican folk dance company founded in 1969 by Susan Cashion, PhD and Ramón Morones whose dream was to create a folklórico group in California with a strong dance foundation and an emphasis on tradition that would rival companies in México.  Los Lupeños quickly became an institution in San José and elsewhere as opportunities to share their celebrated dance suites arose all over the United States as well as in México, England, and Ireland.  Los Lupeños and Los Lupeños Juvenil, its youth ensemble, are both led by Artistic Director Samuel Cortez, originally from Celaya, Guanajuato, México.  Cortez is an award-winning choreographer who studied under master instructors and researchers in Mexico.
