Alec Mazo from "Dancing with the Stars" is one of the professional dancers featured on the ABC ballroom competition series. On Season 9 of the show, Mazo is partnered with Natalie Coughlin.

We all came to know this guy four years ago as the dancer who famously became the first professional champion of "Dancing with the Stars," having successfully partnered with Kelly Monaco in Season 1.

Alec Mazo has been dancing since he was five years old. He moved to America from Russia with his family when he was 12. His mother started a dance studio in San Francisco, and today Alec runs two ballroom dance schools—one in the San Francisco Bay Area and another in Los Angeles.

Mazo and his wife—fellow "Dancing with the Stars" pro Edyta Swilinska—only turned professional in 2005, having been successful amateur Latin competitors for the previous five years. He studied acting at Playhouse West. In 1998, Alec appeared in the Vanessa Williams ("Ugly Betty") movie "Dance with Me." He has also had roles in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "CSI: NY."

Alec Mazo has a BA in Cognitive Science from UC Berkeley.
