Anyone who watches ABC’s hit reality competition Dancing with the Stars knows the names of Derek Hough and his younger sister Julianne. Both of them have been the professional dance partners of a number of celebrities over the years. Derek has won the coveted Mirrorball Trophy five times, a show record. Julianne, who has won the trophy twice, can now be seen regularly as a judge on the program. Now Florida audiences are getting the chance to meet them in person by going to their very first tour together, called Move Live.
Their Florida performances start at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers on Thursday, June 25. For the three days after that, they will be performing respectively at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, the St. Augustine Amphitheater in St. Augustine, and Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater (a matinee performance and an evening performance). On Tuesday, June 30, they close out their Florida tour dates with a performance at the Dr. Phillips Center in Orlando.
Move Live on Tour is a spectacle that’s sure to be a feast for your eyes. This complete stage production, with high production values, will feature the brother-sister team’s dancing skills both alone and together. You will see the two dance in a variety of styles such as hip-hop, tap, ballroom and even salsa. The two are also trained singers and they promise an exciting musical aspect to the show that they call “a cross between a Broadway spectacular and the hippest, coolest dance party you’ve ever been to.” In another twist, Derek and Julianne have called on local dance groups to participate in numbers with them on-stage at each stop.
