Last year we said it was a rock concert for dance and this year it’s going to just be a bigger rock concert for dance. Our whole goal behind it is that the way that you move directly affects the way that you feel, so we get out in the audience. We bring people up on stage. We’re singing we’re dancing!

I was kind of reflecting on my life and certain experiences, and you know when I’m teaching and coaching my partners on Dancing With the Stars, I sort of use those stories and anecdotes to help them sort of overcome certain fears explains Derek. For me, it was sort of a natural thing to do. They’re lessons to be learned and also to be re-learned. I just wanted to share that.

houghHough and her brother Derek appears on the cover of People to discuss their tough childhood, strong sibling bond, and how they found happiness through dance.

If you look at home videos of us, we were always dancing. There was always music on. My dad would always tell Derek, ‘No hip thrusts onstage!’—which I now think is so funny because he earns a living doing that.

Derek Hough interview


Seacrest interviews Hough during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about who he thinks will win Dancing With The Stars.

I definitely think that J.R. [Martinez] has really been a front runner all season, and he has done such a great job. So, I definitely think he’ll be in there. Hopefully Ricki [Lake] and I will be there. In the past seasons that I’ve won, I’ve felt more pressure to win, but with this season I don’t really feel that pressure. I feel like Ricki has accomplished so much already. She’s lost like 20 pounds, she’s healthy, she’s doing great, she’s learning dances. I feel like whatever the outcome, I think it is going to be a successful season either way.
