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.
Motorcycle riding, playing with doggies and working out. Doesn’t seem like he has a lot going on right now, but we know he’s extremely busy next year. It does also beg the question why he seems to be doing some promo: Steve Harvey, Kelly and Ryan…and then there’s Lip Sync Battle and the show with Justin Baldoni. So, there’s a bunch of stuff coming up that we DO know about, and a lot we don’t. 🙂
Well, Derek is at Warner Brothers getting set for Lip Sync Battle against Nicole and it reminds me, again, how fantastic they were as partners on DWTS…what seems like eons ago when DWTS was a different show. Here are some of my favorite Nicole/Derek dances in honor of their upcoming battle. 🙂
Not much from Derek himself but some fun video from Julianne and Hayley. Derek with Harley is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in some time, and I’m so not surprised by him running up the stairs at horror night while Hayley records. He wouldn’t be Derek otherwise. 😉
I have envy regarding the outdoor fireplace/yard area. 🙂 Man, I would love it. Their fire place fun was last night and today Derek is playing with Romie and celebrating Brooks getting picked up by the LA Kings. Congrats!!
According to Maia Shibutani’s blog for Team USA even! This is a fascinating blog, where Maia talks about how the short program is required to be latin dancing this season. So of course they sought out one of the most successful latin dancers of all time, Derek!! Remember back during Move when we commented on the fact that the Shibutanis were visiting Derek and Julianne during MOVE rehearsals? Well, we weren’t far off in our speculations. 🙂 Here’s a tidbit where they talk about consulting Derek about “fun” latin dancing.
While we were aware of the perception that as siblings, the Latin rhythms could be tricky for us to perform, we had our own opinion. In February, before our creative process truly began, we sought out advice from Derek Hough. Derek Hough and his younger sister, Julianne, have been standouts in the world of dance and entertainment on “Dancing with The Stars.” They have experience performing together and even have their own show, “MOVE,” that toured the country for the third time this summer. Derek shared our opinion that Latin rhythms can absolutely be about having fun. The program we have created has a cohesive concept and it is high energy. It really suits us and we’ve made it our own. We love it!
Sounds like they used their regular choreographers, got inspiration from Derek and Julianne, and learned the movement from other ballroom dancers.
Right after worlds, we were able to attend two days of rehearsals for Julianne and Derek’s show. Seeing that elite level of dance on the floor was inspiring. When we were creating our short dance, we worked with Marina and Massy, but we also worked with Serge Onik, Jenna Johnson and Maxim Kozhevnikov. Learning from both male and female dancers was incredibly helpful when we were looking to create movement that highlights both me and Alex.
I feel pretty sure we’ve posted on this one before, but here’s a bit more about it…although still no date. 🙂 From Entertainment Weekly – follow the link to see the photo and read the whole article:
