Eight color slides. Fernandez was a comparsa dancer, a skill she learned from her mother Emelia Fernandez, under whom she apprencticed. She also worked as a registered nurse.

The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, who was later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
