Bailey Davis Dunyo
Bailey was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario where she first fell in love with dance at the tender age of 4. A shy child, she began taking figure skating and ballet lessons and was immediately impressed with how creative movement emboldened her spirit. Wanting more, she started taking classes in a variety of styles and became even more in awe of how the arts can change and empower a person.
She spent her teens and early 20s immersing herself in Pop, Hip Hop, Latin, West African, and Afrobeats styles of dance, while also falling in love with the art of choreography.
Since 2012 she has gone on to share in the joys of dancing, singing, acting and creating with hundreds of children in sub-Saharan Africa, and in Ontario's remote First Nations Reserves as a facilitator and teacher for Sarina Condello's remarkable program called The Big Little Caravan of
An avid performer and teacher, Bailey has performed in many community musical theatre shows, choreographed countless dance pieces, taught dance in numerous schools as an Emerging Artist with Mariposa in the Schools, and has successfully run her own teaching business since 2010.
She appeared as a guest choreographer and assistant to the director on Bravo Canada's hit documentary series Way Off Broadway, and was a
featured speaker at a TEDx event, talking about the importance of arts programming for children.
Bailey hopes to use her love of the arts to inspire change, connect communities, and empower people of all ages.
