Belbin was a Canadian ice dancer who started to skate pairs, because her coach believed it would make her
stronger. In 1998, Belbin changed disciplines again and moved to Detroit. There, she teamed up with Agosto.
Her mother Michele is a figure skating coach and costume designer. Agosto moved to Detroit to skate with
Belbin. He was partnered with Katy Hill from 1995 to 1998.
