I received dance & dance education credentials from SUNY Brockport (B.S), Florida Sate University (M.F.A.) & New York University (Ed.D). Over the past twenty-five years I have taught dance, and choreographed and directed dance concerts in various colleges, universities & dance studios nationwide.
Some of my career highlights were achieved while working as a tenured associate professor in dance at Frostburg State University, in Frostburg, Maryland. One highlight in particular, was developing and organizing the first intensive summer dance workshop on the FSU campus, located in the beautiful foothills of western Maryland. This vision, and its inception, led to the successful collaboration with the Martha Graham Dance Company, in creating The Frostburg Summer Dance Retreat in 1999 and 2001.
I possess a sharp eye for detail teaching in the Martha Graham style of modern dance, including personal and various dance pioneers contributions. I work well under pressure with students, peers & colleagues of all ages and diverse backgrounds. I have strong interpersonal skills and I take great pride witnessing the unique development and technical proficiency of all my students. Besides teaching I am also humbled by directing dance companies, concerts and festivals.

Favorite Falls: Martha Graham & Doris Humphrey is an original class Dr. Fischer has developed. This unique opportunity allows dancers to experience an early modern dance aspect from the 30s. A dance technique class is suggested before taking Favorite Falls, and is open to all students on any level.
I am passionate as a dance technique teacher as well teaching related dance subjects. I am grateful watching the student's technical and creative progresses when in preparation for demonstrations in the performance arena. I enjoy sharing my experiences, strengths and dreams with aspiring dancers of all ages, as well as with dance devotee' and balletomanes. I am enriched by cultural indigenous dances on the global level, the 20th century birth of American modern dance, and the integration of a myriad of the arts, including collaborations by various artists.
