LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - The massive hit show American Idol pulled out all the stops in its star-studded finale, hiring Liz Imperio (www.lizimperio.com) to choreograph Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Anthony's sexy surprise number live from the Nokia Theatre on May 25, 2011.

Her electrifying moves and dynamic routines make for an ultra-creative spectacle that brings out the passion in artists -- particularly the Cuban-American's sizzling brand of Latin heat. Known most prominently for staging and choreographing two of Madonna's world tours -- namely "Re-invention" and "Confessions" -- as well as directed Gloria Estefan's last 3 world tours, Imperio has also worked with Lopez during her "Live from Puerto Rico" concert, as well as her VH1 Music Award performance. Her credits include 3 Latin Grammys, The American Music Awards, "United We Stand" with Michael Jackson, N*SYNC, ABC's 50th Anniversary celebration, the CBS TV series "Dirty Dancing," and countless more performances across the United States and Europe. Her impeccable client roster makes Imperio one of the most highly sought after director/choreographers today. Young stars such as Hilary Duff, America Ferrera, and Renee Olstead have enlisted Imperio for training, further enhancing her star-studded repertoire.

As the founder of Instincts Live Media Dance Company, she further expands her talents to other spheres, partnering with Chad Carlberg to launch Imperio Productions. The firm has worked with such venerable names and brands as Sony Pictures, VH1, The Disney Channel, among many others. Eileen Koch & Company teams up with Imperio to provide all the PR and consulting needs for her artistic direction and Emmy Award-winning choreography.
