We are pretty much at the halfway point of ‘Move Live on Tour’ and the cast & crew had a day off on June 30 prior to their show at The Palace at Greensburgh, Pennsylvania on July 1. It sounds like one of the crew members organized a BBQ as many of the dancers tweeted photos from it. We also got some great interviews and blogs from Julianne and Derek that you can check out below!!
Read Julianne’s blog on her official website about reaching the midway point of the tour! Also check out the fun pictures she shared from tour life… =)
Derek talks to USWeekly about how grueling ‘Move Live on Tour’ has been, but also adds it’s insanely fun! He’s interviewed at the Kelloggs event he did last week in NYC. Make sure you check out the fun video at the article also!
Please make sure you read this AMAZING interview that Derek did with Today’s Woman Now where he discusses his gratitude for his success and fans over the years, as well as, new details about ‘Move Live on Tour’…. like it could have just been based at The Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas! Below is an excerpt from the interview.
When I mention that Hough’s attitude of gratitude was so apparent that season that it seemed to me as though he choreographed everything from a state of pure joy, Hough enthusiastically concurs. “Yeah! I was creating from a state of pure joy and gratitude!”
He muses: “There’s a science to success I feel. (You) can follow certain people in their footsteps…follow certain paths. There is a certain science to it. Whereas fulfillment is an art. And I really feel like the fulfillment element of it wasn’t there (at DWTS) for me for a while, he continues. “And then all of a sudden I changed my perspective. And certainly, with Sochi paralympian bronze medalist Amy Purdy (with whom Hough came in runner up on DWTS’s very recent season 18) it was truly incredible to have that experience. Having Amy as my partner transcended the whole competition aspect of the show,” Hough declares.
Hough, who won a 2013 primetime Emmy Award for choreographing some DWTS pieces explains the origins of his choreography: “Whenever I hear a song that I’ve been given to choreograph something to, the very first thing I see is color. A color of what the mood is…of the style…the feeling. So the color is the first thing that speaks to me in music. And from there I try to emulate those colors with movement.”
