My goal for you is to become comfortable and confident, look natural and have FUN on the dance floor in just ONE SESSION—guaranteed!” ~ Cynthia Glinka
If you can walk, you can dance. Spin, dip and dance your way to the bedroom!
Is this ballroom dancing?
Well, yes AND no! Competition or extensive training is not our goal. I focus less on footwork and emphasize upper body posture and elementary steps – the Closed Position hold (in an intimate embrace) and simple variations that can be easily led and comfortably followed.
I encourage clients not to ‘choreograph’ but to have a sense of spontaneity on the dance floor. No pressure – we’re not going for a trophy here folks! Learning to dance can be the best part of preparing for your wedding day.

You are amazing! All my clients love you, and so do I. You make dancing seem effortless and they feel so much more confident on the wedding day which makes for great photos, video, and audiences! THANK YOU! ~ Jubilee Lau, Wedding Planner (San Francisco)
Cynthia was fabulous! Upbeat, easy to understand, corrected without seeming military and overbearing. Helped choreograph our wedding first dance in just one lesson. Both entertaining, energetic, and fun.
My fiancé isn’t the easiest person to teach something to – he can be overbearing and a wee bit dominant when taking direction, but she guided both of us to a choreographed first dance in no time!
Both of us enjoyed ourselves immensely, and walked away knowing we can use this lesson for a lifetime. ~ Pink S. (San Bruno)
We want to thank you for a wonderful dance lesson. We feel more ready for our “first dance” in the public eye and are confident, that no matter what, we’ll look good trying. What I appreciated most is your enthusiasm for the art of dance and your quick and easy dance tips. It certainly surpassed all of the other lessons we’ve had. Thanks again Cynthia, it was a wonderful experience on many levels. ~ Holly G. (Sonoma County)
You were fantastic! Andy and I really enjoyed your company and dance instruction. We had such a great time, and I am so proud of Andy for doing so well. Now it is time for us to dance (practice) so we can shine on the wedding day. Thank you for the recap of instructions. I will also let Adrian’s parents know how wonderful you are and advise them to take lessons with you. I would like for all of us to look good on Candice’s wedding day and surprise everyone with our foot work! ~ Lily & Andy (San Mateo)
