Good afternoon, just stopping by with a bit of silliness to tell you that Ariel and I miss you guys. Looking forward to seeing you in the fall.
Fishback Studio and Miss Kathie have meant so much to me the last 20 years, I cannot put a dollar value on it! But I know that though there are not classes going on, there are still expenses. I just paid for April and May tuition, because I fortunately am able, and I want the studio to be there for us all when all is well again. If anyone is able to join me, I urge you to call the studio. There is also still time to pay for March if you haven't yet. Thank you, Kathie, for the community you have built โค๏ธ
When I was taking ballet in the 1960's, I remember Mrs. Fishback teaching us a little song about not walking like an elephant walks. That sweet memory flash came back to me as I was recently walking behind an elephant in Thailand. Thank your Mrs, Fishback and Dr. for many years of ballet experiences in your studio from the 1960's to early 1970's.
Abby Lee Miller loved High Strung, and she would love to see some Fishback Studio dancers at these upcoming events! ๐Ÿ’— Hope you are able to make it, and please share with friends! ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ

We offer pre-ballet for ages 3, 4, and 5. Classes in ballet, tap, jazz/hip hop, modern and Scottish dancing, as well as acrobatics to students from 6 years old, teens and adults. We are proud to be the home of many national dance champions, overall high score placement, best choreography, and best technical ex*****on awards. Some of our former and current students have gone on to perform on the stage, television, movies, videos, amusement parks, cruise ships, national pageants, local venues and to teach throughout the USA. We know the benefits of dancing are remarkable for health, poise, grace and just plain fun, so we encourage everyone in the Albuquerque area to come and participate!

Our Mission
At Fishback Studio, it is our mission to stress the importance of dancing as an ideal physical education as well as an artistic achievement.

Company Profile
Fishback Studio was founded in 1945 by Dr. and Mrs. Fishback. Today, the studio is operated by their daughter, Kathie Fishback Anthony and her husband, professional guitarist Michael Anthony. Kathie trained since the age of 3 at Fishback Studio and enjoyed twelve years of professional dancing in Hollywood where she was seen dancing on the Carol Burnett, Dean Martin, Shirley MacLaine, NBC Follies, Emmy and Academy Award Shows among many others. Kathie loves sharing her professional experience and love for all dance forms with the students.

Fishback Studio maintains a wide acquaintance with nationally recognized teachers and performers from New York to Hollywood, and professional contact with these has kept our quality of dancing abreast with the times. Our senior faculty maintain the excellence of their training through constant study and personal appearances. Assistants in the studio are personally trained by the studio faculty. Most have eight or more years of advanced training in the studio.

Fishback Studio is a member of Dance Masters of America, Cecchetti Council of America, and Dance Educators of America.

Competition DanceDance competition has become increasingly popular among our students. Special choreography, preparation and training are required for these routines. Teachers put in many hours throughout the year preparing and rehearsing with the students and are pleased to offer accomplished dancers at Fishback Studio with this opportunity.
