Derek Hough

Emmy Award-winning Derek Hough, the only five-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 performing arts school where he studied theatre, music and dance.

A multi-talented entertainer and five-time Emmy nominee for choreography, Hough was seen in a starring role for director Duane Adler and producer Robert Cort in “Make Your Move” which hit theatres in March of 2014. Acting opposite Korean pop sensation BoA, “Make Your Move” tells the story of star-crossed dancers in New York find themselves at the center of a bitter rivalry between their brothers’ underground dance clubs. Hough performed in London’s West End where he starred as the male lead in the critically acclaimed stage version of “Footloose,” was one of the featured dancers on the Dancing with the Stars Tour and a choreographer on the BBC (UK) hit show, Dance X.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
