Maurizio Conte & Caitlin Andersen
When Italy and America unite, you get more than just great music (Frank Sinatra) and the Godfather (Mario Puzo). You get powerful Latin dancing!
After moving to New York City from Cassino, Italy in 2019, Maurizio Conte responded to a Facebook ad for a new dance partner. The lucky lady happened to be Caitlin’s good friend and was no longer seeking a partner, so she recommended Caitlin.
The sparks were instant, on the floor and off the floor.
Maurizio Conte has an untamed passion for dance and unmatched charisma on the dance floor. You will catch him doing the splits in Jive, hip-hop style body isolations, and insane body rhythms. His unique rhythmicality combined with superb technique led him to land the national title of Italian Amateur Latin Champion in 2013 and 2014.
Caitlin Andersen, an American, grew up studying ballet, lyrical, and flamenco. While attending Oxford University for her MBA, she discovered the competitive world of ballroom dancing. In one year, she went from winning Latin Pre-Champ events to placing 2nd in Professional Rising Star Latin.
The couple’s coach is Richard Porter. They frequently take lessons from currently competing world champions, finalists and semi-finalists including Ina Jeliazkova, Natalia Maidiuk, and Marika Doshoris.
So far this year (2022), Maurizio and Caitlin finished in the Top 36 in the Professional Rising Star Latin at the Blackpool Dance Festival, as well as, placed 2nd in Professional Rising Star Latin and 3rd in Open Professional Latin at First Coast Classic. They were finalists in Professional Rising Star Latin and Open events at Heritage Classic, Philadelphia Dancesport Championships, New Orleans Open, and Miami Vibe.
We can expect great things from this Italian-American rising star duo!
