CINDY - 1961

Executive Director of Performance & Choreography


I grew up in snowy SW Michigan. I’ve been dancing since the age of 3. I went on to dance, instruct, choreograph and own my own dance studio for many years back in Michigan. I’ve been a Las Vegas transplant since 2018.  I’ve been married 25+ years, have 3 beautiful daughters, one son-in-law and one handsome grandson. The Vegas Golden Gals have not only brought me out of dance retirement but have also reminded me just how much I missed it all. The creative aspect, performance and instructing not only steps but also the love of movement in our “golden years”. I am a Vegas Golden Gal original and founding member of the VGG team. I’m excited to move forward and Lead the Vegas Golden Gal team and honored to have the title of Executive Director of Performance & Choreography and continue the Mission of the Vegas Golden Gals which is to spread Joy & Sequins everywhere we go!

Cynthia - 1954

VP Board of Directors

I’m a retired flight attendant originally from Cleveland, Ohio. I’m blessed with 3 terrific kids and 3 fun grandchildren. I marched in my first parade at the age of 5, a mini majorette. My mom taught all of the baton twirlers, my dad gave us the marching beat with his drums! I was a cheerleader and dancer through my school years and beyond, helped teach ballet and owned a Jazzercise franchise as well. So happy to be given an opportunity to shake those Poms again! These Gals are terrific!

DIXIE - 1960

Business Assistant

I am one of the original Vegas Golden Gals.  We moved to Las Vegas from Washington State in 2021. I am a Breast Cancer survivor and the recipient of a pacemaker. It was just 2  months after getting my pacemaker, that i saw a post about a senior womens pom pom team forming. I had been a cheerleader  through middle school  and all four years of high school, so I was very interested.  I got the ok from my cardiologist, but it came with restrictions. To avoid pulling the leads from my heart,  I cannot raise my left arm above my head or do repetitive motions. So, if during a performance you notice one of the gals only using one arm, that would be me. I'm so glad I found these Gals to keep living my best life. Married and Mom of 3 adult children.
