On August 5, 2014 HarperCollins Publishers released Derek’s first book: Taking the Lead: Lessons from a Life in Motion.
Derek, mostly known till present as a dancer and a choreographer, makes his literary debut with “Taking the lead: Lessons from a Life in Motion”. With a foreword by Kellie Pickler, the book lets us be a part of Derek’s journey, allows us to witness his life experiences, good or bad, and explains Derek’s perspective on life and how to turn every experience into a positive life lesson.
Although it is only Derek’s first time writing a book, “Taking the lead: Lessons from a Life in Motion” made the NY Times Bestsellers, making Derek not only a two-times Emmy winning choreographer, but also a best-seller author! And we couldn’t be happier about it!
