Vinny Balbo is an actor, dancer, And director living and making work in Los Angeles. From making the tough decision to drop out of school in order to pursue his art, to living full time as an artist, Vinny is determined to create work that engages and inspires. Both Vinny and I grew up in the Twin Cities in Minnesota and I knew him originally as a dancer and movement artist, later learning that he is also wildly creative when it comes to photography, directing and producing short films and video clips. He has a fascinating and naturally creative mind and I came away from this conversation feeling a deep need to go create something. That’s the effect he has- inspiration by example.

In this conversation, Vinny and I talk about what it is like to grow up in a big artistic family, the path to becoming a largely self-taught dancer and how to discover and craft your own style. We discuss the art of collaborations, his new project of short films and what that experience is teaching him currently, and how to live and make work more fully in the present moment.
