Jacob Soble is a self-taught choreographer from San Diego, California. Having developed many of his dance skills on his own, Jacob's creativity led him to start choreographing at the age of 15. His objective and mindset when creating, dancing, or performing is to feel and experience movement simultaneously, letting it be natural; to dance authentically. His joy is making people "feel something special." and to personally connect with his work. In 2017 Jacob started a 501(c)(3) non-profit outreach program called 'Love 2 Dance Inc.' He donates his time teaching Contemporary and Hip Hop dance after school to underprivileged children. He hopes to make a difference by inspiring a new generation of dancers. Jacob is a freshman pursuing his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance at SDSU. He also teaches dance at Culture Shock Dance Center, Dance & Company, San Diego Circus Center, Golden State Ballet and Pilates and other studios throughout San Diego and the surrounding areas.
