    Question Belbin and Agosto Post 2010

    I haven't kept up with what little pro skating is left in the United States, but I was surprised to see that Tanith and Ben aren't touring with the US Stars on Ice. Anyone know why? Their website hasn't been updated since 2011. Are they still doing shows together? If so, how do they look as a pro team? Do they have any interesting pro programs I should check out on YouTube? Thanks in advance.

    No, they're not skating together anymore. Belbin's site: http://www.officialtanithbelbin.com/
    Agosto is coaching in the Seattle area - January 2013 article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    Since retiring from competitive skating following the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Agosto and longtime girlfriend Merrie Parr have moved to Olympia, Wash., where he now coaches. In addition to ice dancing, he works with singles skaters on skating skills, choreography and presentation.
    ...
    Agosto has also been involved with some massive professional choreography, working as Cindy Stuart's assistant choreographer on two new Disney on Ice productions, "Dare to Dream" and "Rockin' Ever After."

    On a daily basis, Belbin works as a coach and choreographer at two rinks in the Detroit area. A skater for whom she's choreographed -- Barbie Long in junior ladies -- will be competing at the U.S. championships. She's also had choreographic input into the programs of several other skaters. In these final days until she heads to Omaha, Neb., Belbin is also preparing for her work behind the microphone, commentating all of the programs in senior dance and serving as co-host of the AT&T ICE Desk [for Icenetwork].
    Belbin also does ice dance commentary for the Universal Sports cable channel.
