Derek Hough Interviewed About Davis and White Ice Dance Choreography

Very nice article from the IceNetwork – click the link to read the whole thing. I’ve put a short excerpt below.

When he received the request to work with two-time world ice dance champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White on their short dance, Derek Hough’s initial reaction was to decline. While many people see the five-time Dancing With the Stars (DWTS) champion and Emmy Award winner as capable of doing anything, he was concerned about his lack of experience with skating.

Then his creative passion kicked in.

“Whenever I say I can’t do something, I always say I must do it,” Hough, 28, said. “I thought, ‘I must figure it out. I must find a way.’
“We ended up getting into the dance studio, and it was great. They’re the most amazing people — amazing hearts, amazing spirits and just good, all-around people.”

ETA: Vogue here and be sure to see Just Jared Jr. when you can. They have a really cool pic posted of Derek with Meryl and Charlie. I think we’ve seen it before, but, it’s fun to see again…especially if you haven’t seen it before. Note too that Meryl and Charlie will ice dance in the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston which starts this weekend. According to USFSA, this event will serve as the final qualifying event prior to the selection of the U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team that will represent Team USA Feb. 7-23, 2014, in Sochi, Russia, at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. If interested, see Ice Network for scheduling and broadcasting information.
