Bailey Munoz

According to Munoz, “My goal is to inspire others through dance the way I was inspired. But most of all I want to give back and share my passion for dance.” Munoz most recently worked on Season 3 of High School Musical on Disney Plus. He has toured with Bruno Mars for Macy’s Glamorama and worked with Chris Brown, Will Smith, Meghan Trainor, Gwen Stefani and Justin Bieber’s Purpose tour, to name a few accolades.

They’ll be pumping the music and taking this daytime dance party to the next level, so come join the electricity on the dance floor. Believing dance is for everyone, no dance experience is required to enjoy this fun afternoon filled with free entertainment and activities. The day will feature live performances and workshops from local groups in a wide range of dance styles, the chance to learn this year’s official National Dance Day routine from Munoz, plus fun extras including an ice cream truck, a photo booth and a 360-degree video booth to capture all of your favorite moments.
