Add a positive value to the gravity or an upward velocity value to the emitter.

post samples of what you got, easier to give suggestions..

particles and voxels..fun, but you could get dust or smoke samples elsewhere or shoot own dust smoke samples, map on to a plate and keyframe aktivate it
when foot hits floor.

If you want to acheive it with particles thatīs fine..but you should really post screencap or video link, and we might be able to suggest how to improve settings.
The swirly part is something that donīt come easy and believable for the most times, using real smoke shots or fluid simulation from turbulenceFD does that best.

Well, a very rough... ahemmm... "diagram" because my English maybe not too good. When the dust is coming up it swirls as Prometheus (AKA my HV hero ;) ) said and not just spread

Looks like a job for the VORTEX wind type.

or were you asking how to trigger the effect, whatever it might by, automagically?

Ooop: not VORTEX: "DOUGHNUT". Seriously. Lookit up.
