Stanley Munoz



Born and raised in the border between Harlem and Washington Heights, Stanley Muñoz discovered his passion for dance at a very young age. He first began dancing socially, dancing Latin styles with his Dominican family and Hip-Hop freestyling from the age of 5. He first started performing in high school, winning several talent shows and co-founding the Hip-Hop crew at his school in 2013. Having always dreamed of pursuing a career in dance, he finally began to train with Piel Canela Latin Dance Company in his senior year of high school. After training with the company for a year, he decided to attend Brown University instead of continuing and joining the professional company. Immediately entering the dance scene at his school and joining 3 dance companies, Stanley continued training in Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Jazz, Latin styles, and West African.
Stanley began his professional training at Broadway Dance Center in the professional semester, having the opportunity to train with David Thomas, Joanna Numata, Theresa Stone, Omari Mizrahi, and many other faculty members in a variety of styles. Now entering his senior year, he will be directing the Hip-Hop company and continuing to train until he moves back to New York City to fully pursue a career in professional dance.
