Derek Hough Interviewed On The Move Beyond Tour And More

Dance.com has a sweet new interview with Derek Hough. They ask him on his Move Interactive events with Julianne. They also asked him on the new Move Beyond Tour. More below and at the link.

You’re doing so much. How do you keep up with yourself?!

“The more I do, the more energy I get. When I start to take breaks, that’s when I feel the most tired. When people think about fitness, a dance class or a hike, they can get a sense of fatigue or tiredness. But in reality the best way to get energy is to use your energy.”

What goes into planning ‘Move Beyond?’

“First and foremost, the music. It’s about: I want to dance to that. And we try to make it different. We’re not just grabbing off the radio and sticking songs in the show. We like to make it feel authentic and original.”


How do you decide the style of the shows?

“I love that it’s like a rock concert for dance. The lighting, the whole feeling, it feels like you’re at a concert, but it’s for dance. For me, it’s trying to make the audience feel really excite and move. That’s part of the reason why we called it ‘MOVE’ — not just because of the obvious, but what moves you emotionally? How can we take this audience on a journey, and have a great time and get them moving. “

    What an outstanding article and awesome interview with Derek on Dance.com! It’s always so fascinating to “listen” to him “speak”! And the promo video and pics for MOVE BEYOND Live on Tour are just superb!! Love the opening paragraph on how they describe Derek…”The 31-year-old has far surpassed his role as a dance pro on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ that he is now a star himself, with the lead in ‘Hairspray: Live,’ credits as director and star of Michael Bublé’s latest music video ‘I Believe in You’ and a spot as a judge on Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming NBC competition show ‘World of Dance.'” So awesome to read and witness his incredible accomplishments! But what’s most important and fulfilling to him is giving to others. Giving, sharing, motivating, and inspiring others…such beautiful gifts he and Julianne give to us from their hearts, and the joy they bring to us all is immeasurable. So looking forward to their new MOVE BEYOND tour! Inspired by the elements…earth, wind, fire, and water…they’re going to take it to a whole new level!! I can’t even imagine!! 🙂

    Thanks, Vogue, for this wonderful article/interview! MOVE BEYOND is going to be beyond belief!! 🙂
