Dustin Haug began his dance training in the mosh pits of rock concerts at First Avenue. He is indebted to the Dance Department at St. Olaf College for encouraging him and tempering his recklessness and to KT Niehoff (Seattle) for imbuing a fierce artistry in his heart. His lively classes encourage individual expression, dancing with the group, improvisation, moving into and out of the floor, horizontal space, and lots of zany, good-times laughter. In addition to teaching dance, Dustin has performed in the works of BodyCartography Project, International McKnight Fellow Johan Amselem, Maggie Bergeron & Company, Mathew Janczewski’s ARENA DANCES, and Tamara Ober. Beyond dance, Dustin teaches science at St. Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists and aspires to be a semiprofessional brewer, a makeshift cook, a random handyman, a loving husband, and a caring father. He is thankful for the support of his family, without whom he could not continue to do what he does, and he is humbled by the passionate students he’s had the pleasure of working with at Zenon over the past decade.
