I think it's safe to say and make the claim that all these groups with their instruction and guidance, influenced and contributed to the folklorico dancing development of Richard R. Solorzano. In addition to the studio classroom, Richard studied independently, using videos as a guide. Richard spent a great deal of time studying, analyzing and learning the repertoire of Amalia Hernandez and other greats. He taught himself. This also aided in developing the unique dances he created for Herencia Mexicana. Not wanting to copy other dance groups, he used other groups dances as a foundation to create something new.
