Bailey Sok Bio (Age)
The young and amazing dancer was born Bailey Sok on February 24, 2004, in California, United States. A Korean-American, she was brought up by her mother, Judie Sok and a father whose name has remained elusive. She has two siblings – Britney Sok and Kylie Sok.
As a young girl growing up, Bailey developed an uncanny interest in dancing. This was an interest she developed from her two older sisters who were also dancers. As a result of that, she was always in the studio with her mother waiting for them. Instead of just letting her, at just three years old, sit and wait for the older ones, a director at the studio asked her mother if she would prefer to enroll her in a dance class instead. Her mother agreed to that and it marked the start of her journey into becoming a world known dancer.
Since that young age, Bailey Sok has come to train in many styles of dance and has come to love them all including hip hop. She has trained with some of the best in the industry including Molly Long who is her childhood teacher, Matt Steffanina, and has been mentored by people like the multi-talented choreographer and director, Brian Friedman.

She won the Starpower (San Diego) and Thunderstruck (Long Beach) competitions in 2011 and came 2nd in Thunderstruck (Long Beach) 2014.
In a career that can easily be described as successful, Sok has shared the stage with some popular singers such as Janet Jackson and has been a part of a number of TV shows including DVT (Dance Video Throwdown) on Lifetime TV.
For her education, when she got to eighth grade in 2018, she was allowed by her parents to homeschool because of her very tight schedule as a dancer which sometimes see her traveling to different places to perform.
