Suzanne Oliver

Assistant Professor

(585) 395-5221


Suzanne Oliver holds the MFA degree in dance and the Ph. D. in Kinesiology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After early years at a studio and auditioning for various commercials and television shows in New York, Suzanne returned to dance training in college. Since that time her curiosity has embraced analytic, somatic, and spiritual approaches to movement and the aspiration to be fully present through dance. A certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, she spent the past thirteen years at San Jacinto College South where she created/coordinated the dance program, taught the fine arts dance curriculum, and produced/directed a yearly concert featuring work by established and emerging choreographers. Dr. Oliver is on the faculty of Bill Evan’s Teachers’ Intensive and will begin an Assistant Professorship in Dance at SUNY/Brockport in Fall 2007.
