“Move Live on Tour” played the last of its 48-show tour in Los Angeles, California, at the famous Orpheum Theater on July 26…. an it was SOLD OUT (of course!). This was a homecoming for Derek, Julianne, and many of the dancers after an exhausting, yet fulfilling, two months of constant performing, traveling, and dancing. Many of Derek and Julianne’s loved ones and friends came to support them in this last show including their parents Bruce and Marrianne, Shirley Ballas; Julianne’s friends Cara Santana & Pia Toscano; and Derek’s DWTS Season 18 partner, Amy Purdy!

In fact… Derek, Julianne, and all of the MOVE dancers were very reflective of their last show in LA. They were all incredibly GRATEFUL for the experience and thankful to the fans. Check out their wonderful tweets and comments about this last show and the tour.

Even though this was the last show of the tour…. Derek has alluded to the idea that the tour was SO SUCCESSFUL that they could be going on tour again, as soon as “next year”. I am sure that this piece of news made many people very happy! So until next year…. 😉 But another small “Move Live on Tour” treat was that Derek and the MOVE dancers performed one of their numbers on the “Young Hollywood Awards”. I have a post coming up on that as well! =)

‘Move Live on Tour’: Denver, CO (07/15/2014) – Miscellaneous Photos, Fan Tweets, Photos, and Videos!

Denver Bailey2

‘Move Live on Tour’ played a SOLD OUT show at the Paramount Theater in Denver, Colorado, on July 15th! Unfortunately, Derek was still feeling the pain from the injury he got at the end of the Grand Forks show and we found out that he had hurt his back. =( Derek also shared a video on Instagram of him getting treatments, including psoas and dry needling. Looks painful, but I guess it worked for him because he said that he “felt like a new man”! I hope that Derek truly is healing and not dancing in pain. Good thing the tour ends in 10 days!

PARADE MAGAZINE also did a recent interview with Derek who discusses the tour, his new book, DWTS, and other fun stuff. Read an excerpt below!

Right now you’re on tour with your sister. What’s your favorite thing about performing in front of a live audience?
“Everything! I mean that’s literally why we did that. It’s my favorite thing. We did it for a lot of different reasons, but there’s nothing like that quite compares to performing in front of a live audience. Even if you feel tired or don’t feel like you can do it, the second those lights hit you, you just find something and I like connecting and I love it. Things go so fast and it’s so much fun.”

Between DWTS, the Move Live tour, and your other projects you seem to be constantly busy. What do you do in your down time?
“In my down time? Well I have a book coming out in August, so I’ve been working on that the past several months, but I love adventure. I love scuba diving and rock climbing–I love things that make me feel like Indiana Jones, basically. I love to go snowboarding—all the things that my producers would be terrified if I told them I was doing.”

Speaking of Derek’s book… He has finally started promoting it on twitter! His book, Taking the Lead: Lessons From A Life In Motion will be released on August 5, 2014, and Derek will be promoting the book on a national book tour. Check out the details at PureDerekHough. You can pre-order the book here and on Amazon!

Now, for the first time ever, Derek opens up about his life and the lessons he’s learned on and off the dance floor, revealing how he went from bullied boy to ballroom boss. He details how his experiences have taught him to embrace a positive outlook, and shares the insights he’s gained working with celebrity partners, along with never-before-told, behind-the-scenes stories from the show.

Throughout, Derek spills the real secrets of learning to dance—connection, respect, and cooperative commitment—and demonstrates how he draws on the lessons of dance and competition to embrace and overcome the daily challenges we all face.

Lastly, check out these wonderful photos from the iCourage Instagram account. I am not sure which show these photos are from, but I do know they are from this past week. I am thinking Windsor, ON…. =P

Half-Way Point of ‘Move Live on Tour’ & They’re Still Going Strong! (Misc Media)

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.

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.

Derek Hough’s Attitude of Gratitude

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.”

Julianne is also the cover girl for the August issue of Redbook magazine! Check out Eonline’s article of Julianne’s cover and some beautiful photos!

‘Move Live on Tour’: Red Bank, NJ (06/24/2014) – Miscellaneous Photos, Fan Tweets, Photos, and Videos!

Red Bank Sbaccala

Another SOLD OUT show for ‘Move Live on Tour’ at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, on June 24 2014! But first the cast & crew enjoyed a much needed day off yesterday. It sounds like the Move Dancers relaxed in NJ, while Julianne celebrated her boyfriend’s (Brooks Laich) birthday, and Derek did some sightseeing in NYC (including the 9-11 Memorial). We also found out that NappyTabs is working on a mystery project for Broadyway! Congratulations to Napoleon and Tabitha!

But another reason that Derek was in NYC was because he has a surprise guest appearance on The View this morning! Check out photos and video at PureDerekHough!

Check out this review from Robert Johnson at NJ.com who went to the NYC Broadway show…. Don’t agree with some of it though!

Check out these great miscellaneous photos and videos from the cast & crew, as well as, the fans … Then check out all the great tweets, photos, and videos from the fans tonight at Count Basie Theatre!
