Cindy had many passions in life, but her favorite was dancing. Cindy and her cousin Bart won their first dance contest at the young age of six, at the Bel Ray Ball Room. They also were the featured exhibition dancers for the Chmielewski Fun Time Show on KDAL-TV for years because they were so young and talented. Cindy continued to dance to local bands with Friends.
