WASHINGTON, July 2, 2015 – Fans of “Dancing With The Stars” for the last five season, Communities Digital News has been chatting the bi-seasonal shows, sharing the excitement and drama of the competition with thousands of fans.
With DWTS pro Derrick Hough and pro-turned panel judge Julianne Hough headlining the dance spectacular “Move,” the chance to catch two of dances brightest stars when they appear tomorrow night at the Filene Center at Wolf Trap cannot be passed by.
The show promises multiple dance styles and through-the-roof talent. Behind the scenes talent include choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo (Nappytabs), best known for their Emmy-winning work on “So You Think You Can Dance.” The duo comes to the “Move” tour straight after working with Britney Spears’ Vegas residency.
From the “Move” website:
Derek Hough, an Emmy Award-winning choreographer and the winningest champion in franchise history of the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars, started dancing in his hometown of Salt Lake City at age 11. Just one year later, he moved to London to live and train with the top dance coaches in the world and attend performing arts school where he studied theater, music and dance. During his time in London, Hough performed in London’s West End where he starred as the male lead in the stage version of Footloose.
With celebrity partners on Dancing with the Stars that have included Brooke Burke, Ricki Lake, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, Amber Riley and Amy Purdy, Hough’s innovative and daring choreography has garnered him a total of five Emmy nominations.
Julianne Hough is known to audiences around the world for her success in film, television and music. She was a two-time professional champion on ABC’s top-rated “Dancing with the Stars,” before making a seamless transition to award-winning recording artist and her feature film debut in “Burlesque.”
Julianne and brother Derek Hough also announced that they’ll be joining forces as executive-producers on an original scripted series for Starz entitled, “Blackpool.” The siblings are thrilled to be working together again in their debut role as network producers in a series exploring the “darker side of the glamorous world of ballroom dance.”
The series is set to revolve around the prestigious annual “Blackpool” ballroom competition in England – a stomping ground the Hough siblings, who trained in England, know well.
