PDH Birthday Party For Miss Heidi: Pick Derek Hough’s “Most Creative” Dances

Today is a special day…it’s our Miss Heidi’s BIRTHDAY! Yay! That’s right. She told me she’s 29….but, I think she told me that last year and the year before too. Not sure. 8O lol Seriously, in honor of Heidi and showering her with gifts of our mutual love for Derek, pick what you think is Derek’s “most creative” dances. You can pick as many dances as you want and post the video links too if you like. This can be a dance(s) from anything Derek has done in his career from Dancing With The Stars, his movie “Make Your Move”, the Move Live On Tour, NYSS, or anything he was part of, etc. Also, I want to thank Amy as she wrote a few weeks ago about discussing Derek’s “most creative” dances. I thought what a better time to do it than on our Miss Heidi’s birthday.

Ready? Ok, I’ll start us off. Miss Heidi, thanks a million for the awesome collaborator and friend that you are. Thank you for this amazing site and all of your knowledge and fun. I was a Derek Hough and Dancing With The Stars fan before I met you, but, because of you, you made me even MORE of a fan!! In light of everything you are, I give you “FOXING AWESOME” because that’s YOU!!!

I also give you this Emmy nominated dance in which Derek made a table even dance.

Another fave….


And lastly, this creative number I never tire of….

I may have more which I’ll add to comments. HAPPY BIRTHDAY and have the greatest day!!!
