Simultaneously to its foundation, the Lizt Alfonso Company founded a dance academy for training future dances and, at the same time, it had the initiative of creating the only choreographic contest on Spanish dance, which takes place once a year.
Moreover, she develops each summer season intensive courses for children, young and adults interested in the knowledge and study of her style.
Both events are held annually and, since 2000, the summer courses have spread to other Cuban provinces, such as Villa Clara and Ciego de Ávila.
