Maestra Maria Cerda has been dancing with Teocalli, a Fresno based adult folklorico group at Teocalli Cultural Academy for twenty years. With Teocalli, she has participated in several events at a local and national level, including: Fiesta en la Mision, Baja California; Festival de Bailes Tradicionales de Mexico, San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, MX; International Dance Festival, Las Vegas, NV; Folkclovisco, Calidanza, Festival Los Reyes, San Diego; and Ethnic Dance Festival in San Francisco.
Her involvement and experience working with different age level classes at Teocalli Cultural Academy has furthered her experience as a Folklorico instructor.

Since her first DUF in Hayward in 1998, Maestra Maria has been part of the DUF familia. Teaching at DUF is one of the things she looks forward to every year.
