All I can say is WOW! Today was absolutely incredible! The performance went off without a hitch and the Gym dance was also fabulous. I am in awe of not only your dancing skills, but your teaching skills as well. To have classroom control and the attention of 700 students was amazing. Today was truly inspirational and put a smile on everyone’s faces all day long. Thank you again for sharing your incredible talent with the children in Mill Valley Schools. Trisha Garlock, Executive Director, Kiddo!

Del Mar Middle School in Tiburon was Cynthia’s first social dance P.E. pilot program (2004) and an encore program occurred in 2008 teaching an entire student body of 6th, 7th and 8th graders in conjunction with their Physical Education Department. Thanks to P.E. Department head Norleen Jones for paving the way from the basketball court to the ballroom.
Contact Cynthia for opportunities to introduce social dance to your school. Creative ideas on funding available.Dance and Social Skills are a must for middle schoolers. Beats square dancing!
Dance fever swept Mill Valley Middle School as 6th, 7th and 8th graders completed a unique 5-week dance course taught by celebrated dance coach and choreographer Cynthia Glinka of Larkspur. Glinka taught nearly 700 students the SWING, FOX TROT and RUMBA. The program culminated with the entire school performing a DISCO line dance on the outdoor court, followed by a lunch-hour dance in the gym with music provided by the Mill Valley Middle School Jazz Band. We're so proud of all the students as we were all in step - disco style. Thanks to the State Arts Fund and coordination by Kiddo! Special shout out to PE teachers Andre Salinas, Sarah Petrini and Melissa Palmer, principal Matt Huxley, the Mill Valley District Office staff and Trisha Garlock at Kiddo!
