Meet the team
Cindy Tymko (nee Anderson) began her lifelong love of dance at the age of four. Since she was too young to attend kindergarten, her parents enrolled her in ballet classes and added weekly tap and jazz lessons the following year.
Through to her teen years, Cindy studied, progressed and completed several dance examinations in the syllabuses of Al Gilbert, RAD, BATD and the CDTA.
Cindy competed at the Calgary and the Edmonton Dance Festivals, performing solos, duets, groups and large productions with local dance studios. After successfully auditioning for the Young Canadians, she trained with world re-known choreographers and teachers – she performed nightly at the Grandstand Show as part of the Calgary Stampede.
Cindy's dance career began with accepting a teaching position at a Calgary dance studio. She was also the director and teacher at a Drumheller dance school for five years and teaches at both Calgary School Boards as well as Recreation and Senior Centres around her city of Calgary.
She loves sharing her expertise and dance passion with anyone who is willing to learn. She prides herself in the ability to teach dancers of all ages and boasts her youngest student as 2 and the oldest at 97 years young.
Cindy was introduced to the country and swing styles of dance through friends who talked her into going to the local country dance hall. As a result, she expanded her dance experience by partnering and competing as a dance couple in the 90's. It was there that she later found the love of her life, Richard, who shares her passion for dancing, and the rest is history. Cindy is also a Master Level Certified Judge on the United Country and Western Dance Council circuit.
Richard Tymko was born in Edmonton Alberta and began his dance career as a break dancing teenager. Later, while living in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories, he became interested in the completely opposite dance style of Ballroom and Latin. On his return to Edmonton, Richard taught country and western styles of couples dance at local bars and community centres and workshops across Canada and the US.
Embracing his Ukrainian heritage, Richard also loved traditional folk dance and was a member of the professional Edmonton based folk dance group "Vinok". The troupe travels across Canada and the World performing over 40 World Dances. Richard has since returned to Vinok as a choreographer and expert in country dance as part of their World Dance show.
Richard moved to Calgary to further his dance career and has become known as an innovative, technically founded choreographer. Since moving to Calgary, he found his soul mate and dance partner and is a Master Level Certified Judge on the United Country and Western Dance Council circuit.
