Lots of fun ‘Move Live on Tour’ stuff while our cast was in Houston! Check it out!!!
Derek, Julianne, and the Move Dancers visited a local Boys & Girls Club while in Houston. We have some great photos from local ABC news affiliate, ABC 13! There are tons of nice photos, so check them out here! Below is a video of the cast performing ‘Happy’ for the kids! Thanks to Thomas Goggins for the video.
Consistently, we hear, “It’s all been done before”, “there’s nothing new out there”, or “nobody’s original anymore”. Julianne Hough and Derek Hough disprove all of those pervasive pop culture complaints (and more) with their current roving spectacle Move Live On Tour.
Simply put, you’ve never seen this before. It’s completely original and totally new. It’s also the most engaging, energetic, and exciting show you can see right now. There!
Keep that in mind, this is a “show” in the most timeless sense of the word, yet it bristles with a fresh and fiery vitality courtesy of its brother and sister stars. Last night in Houston, they certainly kept the crowd moving for nearly two hours.
Taking the stage with a host of flawless backup dancers, they rocked through a futuristic hip-hop routine rife with physical fireworks. It didn’t stop there though. Whether Derek was donning a red Matador jacket and sliding across the stage in succinct salsa steps or Julianne lithely moved in tandem with each beat locking eyes with the audience, they continually transfixed.
The official ‘Move Live on Tour’ website uploaded a photo gallery of 28 HQ photos from opening night in Park City, Kansas! I included one above, but be sure to click here to view all the amazing photos!
Here is a short blog from Kelly Ruth, who attended the San Antonio show. She writes that “The two of them are so inspiring and motivational. What an honor it was to get to meet them! I was able to get VIP tickets and I got to meet with both of them and I fell even more in love with them. Julianne Hough has always been a role model to me, but actually being able to meet her was pure joy.” Read the rest of her blog and view some of her photos here!
Derek and Julianne also had a special guest at the Houston show… Corky Ballas! Corky has been Derek and Julianne’s dance coach since they were children and has helped to raise them since Julianne was 10 years old and Derek 12 years old when they moved to London. Here are some photos that fans took with Corky!
Black Betty (funny cameo by Derek at 0:47)
Lastly, here are some great instagram videos that I found today! Cannot wait to see this show!
Derek Tap Dancing
Derek grabbed this fan @jahfan1 and took her on stage to dance!
Yesterday was the best day of my life! It began at 6AM with an email I was instructed to be at the Bayou Music Center box office! We got there, checked in, and got our VIP passes! We waited until about 5:15 and were rounded up into the venue for a quick Q&A with Derek and Julianne Hough! We were instructed not to take any videos or take pictures during that time and no personal questions, and a short time later in walked Derek and Julianne! We went wild! Julianne smiled and waved at me and Derek looked at me a few times! Both me and the girl in front of me had a question, but who did Derek and Jules point to? Yours truly, of course! I began with a "Me?", "Yes" they both said! I began with an oh my gosh and asked my question. Then it was time for the meet and greet! After waiting behind three rows of fans, it was time! At check in the woman couldn't find my name in the list I explained who I was and asked to speak to the coordinator, she quickly came in and shook my hand. We were instructed to leave our items on a table, but I snuck in two letter I had written for them! The coordinator spoke to them and in we walked! They stood there with open arms and hugged me, I handed them the letters and said I know it's stupid and they were so kind "No,no,no, thank you". Julianne and I clung to each other exclaiming finally, during this time my mom told Derek of my life. "Come here sweetheart" he said as he have me a hug! We took pictures and said goodbye, they thanked me again, Julianne told my mom I was incredible!
A few more fun pictures that I found!
