"I was trained as a dancer at the Juilliard School. After graduating, I was a principal dancer with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago for six years. As I traveled the world with HSDC, I began documenting our experiences and created tribute videos for retiring dancers. Subsequently, the company hired me to make a web series of our travels, followed by a special video introducing the dancers of the company for the annual gala fundraiser. Soon, what started as a hobby, turned into a second career as I took some time away from dancing and started my own video production company in Chicago. I moved back to New York City in 2013 and continue to balance video production and dance activities." -Tobin Del Cuore
