Born in Waterloo, Ont., Andrew Poje began figure skating at the age of six — skating in both dance and pairs. In 2006, Poje teamed up with Kaitlyn Weaver, who would eventually become his long-term partner on the ice. Together, the pair represented Canada for about 13 years, winning three World Ice Dance medals, two gold medals at the Grand Prix Final Championships and also three Canadian Ice Dance titles. The pair have also represented Canada in ice dancing at the Olympics games, placing seventh at Sochi in 2014 and PyeongChang in 2018.

Poje, as well as Weaver, have been showered with praise for their seamless ice dancing talents. The pair have had the opportunity to dance for Stars on Ice Canada, The Thank You Canada Tour, as well as helping support the Scott Hamilton CARES Benefit Show. 

Poje is currently near completion of his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Waterloo with hopes of stepping into the business consultation and finance world.

He is competing with Natalie Spooner as his partner on the show. Poje currently represents and is competing on behalf of Right To Play — an international humanitarian organization dedicated to using sport and play to help improve health and develop life skills and promote peace for marginalized children all over the world.
