Amy Purdy Chats About Derek Hough’s Choreography On DWTS And More

The new Los Angeles Times has posted their new interview with Amy Purdy. Below is one question I always wanted to know about Derek and his choreography…

Let’s talk about rehearsals a little. When do you find out your music for the next week’s dance, and how long does it take Derek to work out all the choreography?

The dance begins to take life on Tuesdays, that’s when we get the music. That’s the most creative, private time we have all week to think through what we want to do. It’s just us listening to the music and finding inspiration, trying new moves. Derek basically says ” try this” and we try a move and if we like it we know we will put it somewhere. Derek doesn’t come in with a set dance that he teaches me, we build it together and sometimes we don’t even know the beginning or end until Fridays. Sometimes depending on the difficulty we won’t even put it to music until Fridays. Sometimes we even change moves at the last minute. Derek is such a brilliant choreographer that I’m sure there are countless possibilities running through his head all the time. So while the dance really begins to take shape on Tuesdays it often takes a couple of days before we have finalized a routine, then by Saturday and Sunday we’re trying to fine tune it and come Monday it’s showtime!

Fascinating. More at the Los Angeles Times.

Derek Hough and Amy Purdy – DWTS Season 18, Week 6 Screencaps (Part I, teaser)

Yeah, just a teaser for you kids up late enough to appreciate it. Great night of dancing, all in all – Amy totally wowed me with her Jive. I could kinda tell from her excitement that it was going to be a good dance. And it certainly was. She might actually be Derek’s best jive partner in several seasons!! Anyway, up first is just a few screencaps from the opening dance and then Derek watching NeNe’s dance. :-)
