events & workshops
After a long year of staying home and doing out part to fight COVID-19, we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Below you will find some of our upcoming events in 2023 - some in person, and some virtual. We at Liz Lira Dance Academy are so excited to be able to connect with you all again this year in a fun, safe, and healthy way!
When In Rome
Saturday, June 17th 2023
6pm - late
Liz Lira Dance Academy, Los Angeles
A celebration of Liz Lira and Francisco Vasquez
Ahhh Rome - one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In celebration of the birthdays of salsa legends Liz Lira and Francisco Vasquez, as well as students Nairi, Christian, Pedro, and Grace, we are travelling back in time to the Greco-Roman period.
The Romans excelled at architecture, gladiator games, and celebrations, so this is our "when in Rome". A celebration of birthdays, dancing, and community. There will be a special guest appearance by The Emporer (don't forget to pay your respects and honor Him - protocol is to bow and not turn your back to him!).
We hope you can join us for a night of endless laughter, memorable moments, and dancing the night away with 2 Rooms, live salsa band Son Del Sabor, International DJ Corwin, and International DJ Calz!

On this yoga adventure, you will experience the amazing culture of Cuba with legendary yogi Scott Hobbs, 25-time world champion Latin dance star Liz Lira, Dr. Ramon Yera who has been facilitating medical and cultural trips to Cuba for over a decade, and RDY’s Kevin Montgomery.
You will return with an overwhelming sense of joy and memories to last a lifetime.
