On Sat, June 21, ‘Move Live on Tour’ played TWO SOLD OUT shows at the historic Beacon Theater on Broadway in New York, NY! Seriously, I hadn’t seen this many tweets, comments, shared photos, Instagram videos, and Youtube videos of one “Move Live on Tour” shown since opening night! Derek, Julianne, and the entire cast and crew TOOK BROADWAY BY STORM AND CONQUERED!!!!
Julianne even shed some tears of happiness in a Instagram video that she posted in thankfulness of her first time on Broadway. Derek has actually performed on Broadway previously in 2009 when he did a few shows of “Burn the Floor” and, of course, he starred in “Footloose” in London’s West End for a year or so! But it seemed like everyone… Jules, Derek, the dancers, all the fans were in absolute awe of the show and the success of the show at this venue! By the way, I also collected so many more videos and photos from the Upper Darby show and others that are included in this post so that you don’t miss them… Enjoy!
What makes these shows even more special were two guest appearances by Derek’s most recent DWTS partner, Amy Purdy, and by Shirley Ballas! Shirley has been Derek and Julianne’s dance coach since they were children and pretty much raised them since the time they moved to London. She’s their “London Mom” and Derek even refers to her as ‘Mom’. =) Both Shirley and Amy took photos with lots of fans and were brought up on stage by Derek. Be sure to check out the video below!

Check out this video I found from the New York City show where Julianne chooses a little boy (Sasha) to bring up on stage! Actually, Anna Zhukov (who posted this video) uploaded a bunch of videos from NYC! Thank you Anna!
