Liza Marians was born into dance. Her father was a passionate folk dancer who took his children to all of his dance classes from the time they were babies. With a rich upbringing of music and dance, the choice to become a ballroom dance instructor was clear. Liza trained at Mac Vitties Dance Studio where she was taught bronze level American-style ballroom, swing, Latin, and country dance. She also learned how to be a patient and positive instructor. Over the years, Liza discovered her talent for choreographing wedding dances as well as helping beginners learn to dance for fun.
Years later, Liza was asked to be a country DJ and lead line dancing at a country western hoedown. She agreed, and had a great time! She especially enjoyed creating the perfect playlist for the clients and getting everybody out on the floor after dinner with a couple of fun line dances. Several DJ gigs followed, including weddings, corporate gigs, school dances, and private parties. Liza enjoys the variety of teaching dance regularly and being a DJ on occasion. Liza has been teaching dance for 19 years and has been a DJ for 6 years.
