Dusenbery studied classical dance at the San Francisco Ballet and, later, modern dance in New York City at Juilliard with Jose Limon, Martha Graham, and May O’Donnell. Dusenbery believes his dance training informs a human- scaled kinesthetic relationship to his sculpture and its space. In 1960, he enrolled in the San Francisco Art Institute to study ceramics. He was an instructor of ceramics at the University of California Extension, San Francisco, during this period, eventually receiving an MFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts in sculpture, receiving an MFA in 1970.
