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. Coach Igor Shpilband is the 1983 World Junior Ice Dance
Champion with partner Tatiana Gladkova.
