ABOUT THE CASHION CULTURAL LEGACY
In honor and recognition of the many contributions of Dr. Susan V. Cashion to the dance world,
the Cashion Cultural Legacy is dedicated to supporting the presentation and training of Mexican dance and
artistic culture while at the same time documenting and preserving its costumes, choreographies, art, and history.
Susan Valerie Cashion (1943 - 2013)
A vibrant pioneer in Latin-American dance and above
all Mexican Folklórico, Susan Cashion was a dancer,
researcher, choreographer, instructor, director, producer,
and arts advocate. For thousands of students and peers,
she was a friend, a mentor, a bundle of energy, and
the decisive voice of experience.
