Dancing with the Stars siblings Julianne and Derek Hough join forces for Move–Beyond–Live on Tour, which features inspiration pulled from earth, wind, fire, and water and launches April 19 in Akron, Ohio. The tour will continue through Chicago, Boston, New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and more before concluding in Santa Rosa, California.
Derek and Julianne Hough are longtime Dancing With the Stars fan favorites with multiple Emmy Awards and mirror ball trophies between them. Separately, they starred in two recent TV musical events, Grease: Live (Julianne) and Hairspray Live! (Derek). Derek also joined Laura Benanti in Radio City Music Hall's New York Spring Spectacular, and he was scheduled to make his Broadway debut in the now-postponed revival of Singin’ in the Rain.
Move–Beyond–Live on Tour is co-created, choreographed, and produced by the Houghs. Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo, also known as NappyTabs, co-create, direct, and supervise choreography for the tour as well.
The Hough siblings, according to press notes, “are promising fans their biggest and best show yet, with brand-new stage production inspired by the elements—earth, wind, fire, and water—which the duo have infused into fresh, high impact choreography that only they can deliver. The show will bring fans on a journey of dance and music, taking inspiration directly from the four elements as an exploration of the human relationship with nature.” The pair is joined by the Move Company Dancers for group performances in styles ranging from ballroom and tap to salsa and hip-hop and everything in between.
“There is nothing like performing onstage in front of a live audience and this show is going to be like nothing we’ve done before,” Julianne said in an earlier statement. “For those that have been before or will be experiencing the show for the first time, it will transport them beyond their wildest imaginations and expectations.”
