Biography (English)

Omar Munoz was born and raised in Veracruz, Mexico. He has danced, taught, choreographed and performed since 1999. At age fifteen, he moved to California and a new chapter of his life started. Music and dancing had always been around him and was one of his biggest passions. Growing up, there was always music, especially salsa, playing around his home all day. Not wanting to be the guy at a party that didn’t know how to dance, Omar decided to learn to dance and quickly realized it came naturally to him.
