Teaming up with nonprofit organization Dancers Against Cancer, which provides financial support to dance educators, dancers and parents impacted by cancer, the entertainers filmed a PSA with dancers Ruby Kaufman, Chloe Frank and Ahna Rasmussen, and are using their star power to raise awareness leading up to the charity’s Industry Dance Awards in August.
Julianne Hough – who “started dancing coming out of my mother’s womb,” she jokes – also couldn’t picture a life without her passion. “One thing I love more than anything is being able to bring joy to someone’s life,” adds her brother Derek. “The way you move directly affects the way you feel, and that’s what dancing has done for me.”
