BiographyEdit

Retrieved from abc.com
Emmy Award-winning and New York Times best-selling author Derek Hough, the only six-time champion in franchise history of the hit ABC show Dancing with the Stars, started dancing in his hometown of Salt Lake City, UT, at age 11. Just one year later, he moved to London to live and train with the top dance coaches in the world and attend the prestigious Italia Conti performing arts school where he studied theater, music and dance.

A multi-talented entertainer, two-time Emmy Award winner and seven-time nominee for Best Choreography, Hough has appeared in film, television and stage projects as an actor. He made his feature-film debut for director Duane Adler and producer Robert Cort in the feature film Make Your Move, and recently was featured in the ABC series Nashville. His stage performances include Radio City Music Hall's Spring Spectacular, costarring alongside the Tony Award winning Laura Benanti and the critically acclaimed production of Footloose, which he starred as the male lead in London's West End.

Hough was one of the featured dancers on the original Dancing with the Stars tour and a choreographer on the BBC (UK) hit show, Dance X. In addition to choreographing the hit music video Parachute for British popstar Cheryl Cole, Hough performed live with her on her 2010 concert tour in England and France to rave reviews and standing ovations.

Hough can also add author to his growing list of credits. His memoir Taking the Lead; Lessons from a Life in Motion hit stands in August of 2014 and rapidly was named to the prestigious New York Times Best-Seller list during two non-consecutive time periods. In 2014, Hough and his sister Julianne teamed for a live stage dance concert MOVE Live on Tour, performing in 50 cities around the country. In 2015, they toured again, selling out scores of venues on their 47-city outing.

With celebrity partners on Dancing with the Stars that have included Brooke Burke, Shannon Elizabeth, Jennie Garth, Ricki Lake, Maria Menounos, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Kellie Pickler, Amber Riley, Amy Purdy and Bindi Irwin, Hough is best known for his innovation and daring choreography on the show. Hough is the winningest professional dancer with six Mirror Ball Trophies. His work has brought him Emmy nominations and inquiries from the film and music world regarding his dance knowledge and ability.
