About Derek Hough
Derek Hough is a dancer, musician, actor and choreographer from the United States. His claim to fame is the fact that he is a world champion in Latin American dance. Derek has also featured constantly on the popular television reality show “Dancing with the Stars” since 2007. He has won this three times. Hough has also been a finalist in the show twice. His net worth has been estimated to be $3 Million.
However it all started for him in London. When he was just 12 years of age, Derek was sent to London by his parents because they wanted him to get dance training in the city. Hough was supposed to stay in the city for a year, but eventually, he ended up staying in London for 10 long years. He first got noticed in “Footloose: The Musical” that was performed at the West End of London’s Novelo Theatre. He went on to perform on the UK national tour in 2006. Derek was nominated for “The Stuart Phillips London Newcomer of the Year” for his performance in Footloose.
But of course, Derek really became famous for “Dancing with the Stars”. He has won this show thrice with Jennifer Grey, Nicole Scherzinger and Brooke Burke. He has been a finalist twice with Shawn Johnson and Ricki Lake. Hough has almost always made it to the quarter-final or the semi-final. He thus quickly became a recognized face on this popular show on television.
He has also appeared on Broadway. Derek starred with Mary Murphy and Kym Johnson in “Burn the Floor”. In later years, Derek Hough has taught dance moves at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.
