‘Move Beyond’ With Julianne And Derek Hough Called “Thrilling” In Albany, NY (Merchandise Pics, Videos, And More)

What a show in Albany last night. Cathy saw it and said it was a “thrilling evening of pure magic…with excitement, passion, love, energy, inspiration, joy, and laughter filling the air.” She also said the whole Supreme VIP experience was “equally and beyond amazing as the show itself.” She plans to write a blog and she took lots of pics. For now, she sent us a couple of photos of the Merchandise. As always, I want a Hoodie. I wouldn’t mind having the sweat pants too. Way cool. Thanks Cathy!

Lots more below including a Dancing With The Stars, Hairspray Live, and Grease Display. Also, be sure to see Miss Heidi’s first Albany post too if you haven’t yet. It’s filled with goodies. Lastly, see Shelli Aldrich-Reed’s You Tube for a bunch a videos from the Detroit show (thanks to Elmari for the heads up). I think I’m going to pass out with all of this fun coverage. Ha ha!

The Daily Reporter Reviews MOVE Beyond Live on Tour

This is another good review (or blog?) about Move beyond and the amazing talents of Derek and Julianne Hough. Excerpt from the Daily Reporter.

The Hough siblings are like Donny and Marie Osmond of a different time period. Their stage production at the Fox Theatre was inspired by the elements — earth, wind, fire and water and their high impact choreography was awe inspiring.

I joked with the lady sitting next to us that it’s no wonder their bodies are so fit and trim since they were in constant movement for an hour and a half. They were joined by the Move Company Dancers for group performances in styles ranging from ballroom and tap to salsa and hip-hop and everything in between.

It was like being transported beyond our wildest imaginations and expectations — thus coining the name for the show.

One of the pieces done was to Disney music and involved a banter between the brother and sister duo on who is most accomplished. It was cleverly and humorously done while sharing some of their accomplishments.
