This week, we had two episodes of Ellen, lots of Halloween Parties, DWTS, a DWTS after party – and Romie in a bee costume and a Derek flashback. We’re still seeing pics of the promo posters around the world for Make Your Move – hopefully we’ll start seeing them here in the US after the first of the year. That they’re spending money on it is a good sign.
Another somewhat slow and mysterious week in Derek-land. There was some mysterious photo shoot – we don’t know for what – Shirley alluded to “the boys” looking for a new home, Derek partying with the DWTS pros in Malibu and finally, some Tony Robbins thing in Chicago. Whether “the boys” are Derek and Mark or Derek and Romie, I have no idea. We also found out that Derek is dancing with Emma Slater at Cal Phil next weekend. Oh…and TWO EMMY NOMINATIONS. Even when nothing seems to be going on, stuff is going on. So, here is the week in twitter via photos…and video.
Derek made this little video for @stephjewell75 while he was at Tony Perkin’s.
There’s been some action on twitter the last few days regarding Derek’s movie, Make Your Move. (Click, click, click!!) It appears that there are quite a few European release dates out there and Duane Adler hopped on twitter and updated us on what’s what. (read from the bottom, up)
Exciting!! Not just news, but European release dates, a possible movie poster, and new stills from the movie one of which is linked, below. For all the latest news and information about “Make Your Move”, be sure to visit the fan site MakeYouMove3D.com
There are a whole bunch of pictures of Derek from yesterday in Virgnia Beach. I’m not going to post them all in this post, but I’ll post facebook links in the description of each photo so you can go see and “like” them all. Before Derek went to VA Beach for STYLElicious, we found out he is choreographing for Olympic Ice Dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White and we got another shot from Cheryl of when they were much younger and competing. We also got a new short of Romie!!
Lots of stuff happened this past week! We found out that Derek is back on DWTS for one more season, dancing with Kellie Pickler, and that he and Julianne have created and are Executive Producing a TV series (scripted drama) for Starz called “Blackpool”. Then Derek and Kellie flew to Nashville to rehearse and “do the town”. Here’s the week on Twitter…in pictures.
Here’s a great fan video by Sue – it’s all about the blue eyes. Remember, if you create a fan video and you want me to post it when times are slow, you have to send it to me because I don’t have time to watch them all.
My buddy Cath on Twitter pointed this out to me – pretty cool profile on a site called Newscom that even includes a Cobu 3D mention…and one pic I hadn’t seen before. I’ll put an excerpt below, but be sure to go to the site to read their profile and see all the pictures.
But his talents extend beyond the dance floor. He and fellow professional dancer, Mark Ballas, founded a band together where they both sang lead vocals and played guitar. His singing skills were put to use in 2006 when he starred as Ren McCormack in the original cast of the stage production ofFootloose in London’s West End. And before being judged by Bruno Tonioli on DWTS, Derek worked as a choreographer for him on the British reality showDance X. Those choreographing skills have since been showcased in America on DWTS. His gift for creating dances has led to some of the most entertaining moments on the show.
Fortunately Hough’s genius will be showcased on the silver screen in the upcoming film Cobu 3D. It’s a dance flick starring Korean pop singer BoA Kwon (also dubbed the Korean Britney Spears).
