For the past 15 years, Cynthia has inspired thousands of middle schoolers in the Bay Area. Cynthia and her partner A.C. Griffing were the instructors at Belvedere Tiburon's Cotillion program for ten years. Now, with Manners in Motion®, they bring a whole new level of fun, glamour, and excitement to classic Cotillion instruction. The program features an innovative teaching technique developed by Cynthia Glinka.

Sessions are taught in a supportive, non-competitive environment that integrates social group awareness with a sense of style, grace, and fun.

Social Partner Dancing takes an entertaining and inspiring approach with an emphasis on appropriate boundaries of touch and mutual respect. Students learn how to ask for and accept a dance, escort a partner to-and-from the dance floor, and how to identify different musical tempos.

Etiquette Evening is a fun, entertaining way to give your child confidence and poise. 
The Do’s and Don’ts of Dining and Discourse explores the art of table manners and the basics of social interaction.
From when to turn-off their cell phones to knowing which water glass is theirs. All in a formal setting. A delicious three-course meal and refreshments will be served.

These lessons can be applied to everyday life, from learning to keep one’s elbows off the table to writing a thoughtful thank you note.

Manners in Motion® is inspired by Cynthia Glinka's real-life experiences.

During one of her earlier sessions, Cynthia noticed that some of the students weren’t responding. They slumped, yawned, and were easily distracted. The students’ body language and bored expressions made it clear that dressing-up and going to a gym to learn dancing wasn’t exactly their idea of a good time.

That’s when Cynthia had an idea. She told the kids, Pretend we’re in a MOVIE… you’re an actor or actress… you just came from the Wardrobe Department... quiet on the set… places… rolling… ACTION!”

Immediately, the kids’ attitudes and demeanor shifted. They danced with a spring in their step. Their posture improved as they smiled “for the camera.”

According to Cynthia, “The transformation was dramatic – it was just amazing!”
