Austin Cotillion Debbie Headshot.png

Debbie Fisher, a native of Austin, Texas, has studied and taught dance most of her life.  She started teaching and doing choreography for her high school's dance team and theater department and expanded to teaching for kids' camps while living in the Marshall Islands. She later taught ballroom dance at the University of Texas, local dance studios, and was even invited to dance on television.

In addition to being a certified dance instructor, Debbie holds a secondary teaching certification in psychology and biology from the University of Texas and a Master of Science in Occupational Therapy from Washington University.  Throughout her career as a therapist, Debbie has been able to incorporate dance to enhance her therapy sessions for those with physical and developmental challenges.

 

Over the past 20 years, Debbie has been recognized for her teaching and has been invited to speak for national and international occupational therapy conferences.  She was also the 2022 recipient of the Distinguished in Excellence and Education Award by TSHT. 

 

Debbie is the proud mother of three boys and has a passion for teaching etiquette and dance for the Austin Cotillion.
