The Show highlights the creative builders, makers and designers that are sharing their talents with Arizonans in the Made in Arizona series.

Today we meet dancer and choreographer Liliana Gomez. And for that, The Show sat in on one of her recent classes at the Phoenix Center for the Arts.

Gomez has made a name for herself in the Valley’s art scene by blending the lines between dance and public art. She’s collaborated with visual artists and museums, schools and universities. And she’s paved the way for other choreographers of color in our community by bringing the BlakTinx Dance Festival to Phoenix.

But, as she told The Show, she began dancing long before that.
