My biggest dance influence would have to be my brother Derek. His close attention to detail and passion for what he does makes him exceptional at his craft. I swear there isn’t anything he can’t do!

Amy just made a live stream on her Facebook page where she talked about her book, “On My Own Two Feet”, and also answered to fans questions. She talks about inspiration and at about 7:15, she talks about Derek and how he inspired her in life.
Before that, at about 4:30, she talks about DWTS. She shows her Salsa dress (Finale) that she bought after the show ended, as well as her Contemporary one, to keep her memories closer to her as much as possible.

Quick Q&A with Derek Hough

Derek talked to Steve Duffy and Lynnhappens for a quick Q&A where he talks about Move Live on Tour, Julianne and more. Check all his answers in Lynnhappens 🙂

SD: How did the idea for the tour happen?
DH: I missed performing live. I love the energy of the audience. I really feel at home on stage. I wanted to create something that would give me that feeling. My sister and I were always being asked when we were going to do something together. What I love about this show is all about what we want to do with no “Hollywood formula.” It’s entertaining and fun. It is a mission to get people moving.

SD: What is the easiest dance for someone with two left feet to learn?
DH: The two-step, especially because it is basically two steps [laughs]. For anyone wanting to learn to dance I would suggest line dancing. It is simple and a great place to start.
