Dustin Bartee

Academy Instructor

Dustin fell in love with the performing arts near the end of High School, and those experiences have continued to grow through the years. In college, he traveled the country with a select Improv group, performing at conferences, camps, and churches. For 4 years, Dustin directed a youth skit troupe which toured all over Texas, as well as a fundraising production of “12 Angry Men” in the round. From Shakespeare to solo shows, and everything else in between it seems, his recent delight has become musical theatre. In fact, you may even catch him and his family in a show at the Opera House sometime very soon. Dustin is thrilled to be working with the team at the Youth Performing Arts Academy, growing the joy of theatre to all ages.
