After successful presentations at the Karl Marx Theater to celebrate the company's 25 years, Lizt Alfonso Dance Cuba arranges today the last details for the US tour.

The company will undertake its 9th US tour with the show Cuba vibra!. The tour will conclude on November.

During its 25 years, the company has also performed in China, Egypt, New Zealand, Mexico and Turkey.

The Lizt Alfonso dance company was the first Cuban company that performed in a Latin Grammy ceremony in the year 2015, after the international popularity obtained by the Bailando video clip by Enrique Iglesias, in which participated members of the dance company.

The choreographic work of the company mixes flamenco, folklore, contemporary dances and theater, in a symbiosis called by the company's director as 'fusion style'.

The popular choreographer is also UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and for more than a decade she has trained thousands of children and young people in the vocational workshops offered by her group.

By 2017, Alfonso plans the world premiere of 'Latido', with music composed by one of the leading exponents of Latin jazz in the world, the Cuban saxophonist Cesar Lopez.

Also by 2017 Alfonso plans to present the successful musical play Amigas in public squares of Havana.
