      Bio

      Born into a family of talented dancers and musicians, Derek Hough began practicing his craft at age 12 when he received instruction from Corky and Shirley Ballas in London. For ten years, Derek received instruction in dance, music, and more alongside his sister Julianne and Mark Ballas, even making a cameo appearance in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone while he was there.

      In the following years, Hough set the competitive dancing world aflame, winning such prestigious competitions as the 2002 WDSF World Latin Championships and the New York Dance Alliance Outstanding Dance Award.

      In 2006, Hough first appeared on Dancing with the Stars as a guest instructor and joined the show full-time a year later. Over the course of his 17 seasons on the show Hough and his partners placed first overall six times, and Hough himself won two Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Choreography.

      In between seasons of the show, Hough kept busy with a number of projects. He appeared onstage in the original production of Footloose: The Musical, as well as played Corny Collins in the NBC live broadcast of Hairspray. He appeared on the big screen alongside his sister in Rock of Ages, and had the starring role in Make Your Move. From 2014 to 2016, he regularly appeared as Noah West on the TV show Nashville. In 2017, Hough became a judge on the televised dance competition World of Dance alongside Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo.

      In addition to his time spent on-screen, Derek and his sister Julianne have also embarked on a number of "Move" tours since 2014's Move Live, that have brought their passion for dance to cities all across the United States. In 2017, the siblings embarked on their Move Beyond tour, and in 2019 Derek will embark on his first 60 city solo tour around the US.
