Cissy is best known for dancing with partner Bobby on the Welk Show. He met her, and asked her to audition and after a guest appearance on The Lawrence Welk Show, Cissy was welcomed into the Welk Musical Family in 1967. That summer, Cissy was dancing with Bobby at Harrah's in Lake Tahoe as the Welk show's newest performer. In her twelve years of weekly performances on The Lawrence Welk Show, Cissy established herself as a multi-faceted talent and has been a favorite with the fans ever since.

She produced her own nightclub act, Cissy King & Two Fellas, and played 'Bonnie' in Anything Goes. She also staged and directed numerous live shows including the award winning West Coast premier (Los Angeles) of Studs Terkel's Workin'; directed University of New Mexico's Centennial Gala Celebration; staged and directed the premiere of Where's Billy? (the Kid); and was Associate Producer/Choreographer of a music video for country singer, Kip Callahan in 2007. Cissy recently played 'Louise' in Always… Patsy Cline for Musical Theatre Southwest (Albuquerque, NM) and The Lawrence Welk Theatre (Escondido, CA) where she received rave reviews. You may catch Cissy nearly every week on the PBS Syndication of The Lawrence Welk Television Show and, when time permits, she may be found touring the US & Canada with the Stars of The Lawrence Welk Show.
