Sarah Hauss


Adjunct Assistant Professor in Theatre and Dance

I have taught at Gustavus on and off since 1994. I have been a professional choreographer and dancer based in the Twin Cities for 20 years. I have a BA from University of Oregon and an MFA from University of Colorado-Boulder. I am a licensed K-12 Dance Teacher as well. Over the years, I have received funding for my artistic work from the McKnight Foundation, Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, the Jerome Foundation, and the Minnesota State Arts Board. I enjoy teaching and learning a lot. I also teach Yoga and have three great kids.
