This is a site for fans of Derek Hough. We try our best to compile all news, pictures, music and videos about and by Derek – if you find something you think we’ve missed, feel free to contact us. If you are a new fan of Derek’s and want to learn more about him, the “Accomplishments” and “Biography” buttons to the right (and above) contain pages of what we know (or think we know). 😉
Also to the right is a music section where you can find music by Ballas Hough, Derek’s band, and songs that Derek has danced to on Dancing with the Stars. Complete with iTunes links.
If you want to see old posts, there are two ways: 1) by the media buttons to the right, or; 2) by month under the “Derek Archives” buttons also on the right-hand side of this page.
Once again, Derek’s snap chats are a blast. Below you can watch him and Mark Ballas bowling last night (I love the look Derek gives the camera….and I want Mark’s hat too). Miss Heidi is travelling currently. She says she will make videos out of everything when she gets back if she has time.
I can’t promise I’ll do this everyday, but I will when I have time. Below are Derek’s fun snapchats from today. Of course, I have to get off here since I have to get up at the crack of dawn, that means he’ll post about ten more.
As previously reported, Derek and Julianne are nominated for a “World Of Dance” Choreography Award for their “Elastic Heart” performance on Dancing With The Stars. The Awards take place Tuesday, February 9th at Avalon Hollywood in Hollywood, California. If you live in the area and are interested in attending the Awards, see this link for tickets. The Red Carpet starts at 7:00pm and the show starts at 8:00pm. Black and white formal attire is required. For more information, see World Of Dance. Let’s hope Derek and Julianne are planning to go to the show and keep your fingers crossed that they win.
Who's a fan of these dance television shows?! The nominees for "BEST CHOREOGRAPHY ON TV" are @tessandrachavez @chrislxd …

Well, who knew that you had to wait this long to get the plate for your Emmy? I guess the Creative Emmy’s don’t have that little station where they engrave it and put it on for you like the Primetime ones do? Anyway, a cute story from Derek tonight on snapchat.

Vogue posted a fun video with two women who went to the Disneyland 60 taping earlier today. I just came across a different video which has two different women who had a VERY good view of Derek and Witney when they were dancing right in front of them. That part comes in at the 6:30 mark.
