I’m not exactly sure of the origins of the name “Cymbre,” and I’m not sure if there have been any famous “Cymbres” in history.
The only thing I know is that there is one Cymbre I know of, and she happens to be one of the most talented tap dancers I have ever laid eyes on, in person or otherwise.
Of course, if you ever saw #TapInspiration Cymbre Flanagan (@cymbretay) dance on stage or in the studio, you’d be amazed, as well.
Cym is from Cypress, Texas, which is close to Houston. She now lives out in Utah (heads up, @pinkwendi!). Cymbre is and has always been a magnificent tap dancer with a flair for artistry in her dances. She’s an award-winning yap dancer, garnering an entire trophy case full of awards from the numerous competitions she has taken part in. Tap dancing brilliance runs in her family; her older sister, #TapInspiration Cooper Flanagan (@cooper_flanagan), is making a name for herself as a dancer in New York City. When the sisters get together, it’s always special because they are so close. They have an incredible relationship.
I am privileged to know Cymbre from afar. She’s special. Her talents are not just limited to dance; she is also a talented photographer with her own photography project, Cymbre Tay Photography (@cymbretayphotography). She is also one of the kindest people I’ve ever had the good fortune of interacting with. When I was first starting to learn to tap dance, she gave me good advice about how to learn and where to turn for good instruction. She also gave me great advice about picking out the right tap shoes!
Cymbre is amazing. Plain and simple. She is a wonderful dancer, and an even better person who comes from a great family. I truly believe that she is the kind of person you’d want to model your life after. Talented, kind, fun-loving, funny, and driven to succeed in everything she does.
And as long as she has her tap shoes, named Mo and Po, with her, she can and will do just that.
Happy birthday, Cym! Many blessings.
