From a young age, Cynthia Newland was already on the path to being an inspirational influence to those whom she encounters. Her ceaseless curiosity, dedication to hard work and desire to share knowledge paved the way for an impressive broad background and notable career as an educator, artist and more recently, health and wellness consultant.

Cynthia Newland is well known for her encouraging, inspiring and inclusive message for all people and all ages, "Live life to the fullest." Through her work as a dancer, professor and choreographer, those who view and participant are motivated to consider the importance and appreciation of our God given life.
