Nathan Bugh is known worldwide for his intimately rhythmic style of Lindy and vernacular jazz. He has showcased these styles in many iconic venues, such as Carnegie Hall, The Apollo Theater, The Joyce Theater, Martha’s Vineyard, and Jacob’s Pillow. He is a principle dancer in the feature film, “Rebel In The Rye,” and in several music videos, including the Weepies, “Be My Honey Pie.” He is also a swing-dance champion and avid social dancer. Active in the Lindy Hop scene since the late 1990’s, Nathan has earned numerous first-place titles in Solo Jazz, Lindy Hop, Team, Invitational, Slow Dance, and Mix/Match divisions, at events like the International Lindy Hop Championships. And he is the choreographer of the 2015 ILHC winning team, “Yeah Man.” In 2016 Nathan joined CT&Co for “Meet Ella,” a duet incorporating Lindy Hop with other jazz/theater styles. Well-received by critics and audiences, this work began a shift in Nathan’s engagement, from social/commercial dance toward concert dance. His current projects include Caleb Teicher’s sand-dance reverie, “More Forever,” and an evening-length swing dance show at The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
Nathan will be teaching Weekend Workshops and performing in the 20th Anniversary Gala.
