Derek Hough spotted at the DWTS Studios – PICTURES

Daily Mail posted some pictures of Derek while arriving at the DWTS studios. Seems like the season has officially started 😉 As of who is going to be Derek’s partner, we still don’t know since nothing was released officially. But as he posted earlier on his Instagram, he met her and his reaction was really positive! We are sure whoever she is they will be great.


Daily Mail posted some new pictures of Derek leaving, yesterday (August 27), the DWTS rehearsal studio in LA. In those pictures you can also see Bindi’s mom. Bindi and her mom were leaving the exact same time as Derek. We guess the rumors for them to be partners get stronger 😉 Can’t wait to have an official confirmation though.

As for the pros, who do you find to be your biggest competition?
The best pro in my opinion is Derek Hough, but I feel blessed at the same time because whether he really knows it or not, Derek has always been a huge inspiration of mine and he’s one of the first people I ever started to choreograph with and I learned a lot from him. He inspires me all the time and he always pushes me. And also Mark, he is very very innovative and very very creative. You can feel that they get to know their partners so well and care about them so the celebrities themselves shine and you can see it and I really look up to both of them.
