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 2021 - 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!

Liz Lira Bachata Intensive

Two incredible days to improve your dancing, technique, styling, personal connection and mindset with 26-time world champion Liz Lira!

The Basic dance steps are accented with sensual hip movements and pops that are the very soul of this scintillating dance style. It's believed that you build a stronger connection with your intended partner the smoother and more frequently you move your hips during the dance. In its purest form, bachata is more about expressing your feelings for another than raw passion.

Lost in Paradise 

This five-day, four-night retreat will be held on the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia. Spark a desire for life again and find your inner strength and courage to live the life you've always dreamed of.

This retreat is not only a journey of dance, but a journey of self-exploration to recognize your full potential and connect to your intuitive powers to fulfill the life you've always dreamt of. We will ride elephants, attend fire ceremonies and cooking classes, visit the rice fields, and of course dance the night away.
