Most people know Derek Hough from his numerous wins on Dancing with the Stars. But this talented performer also acts, choreographs, sings . . . It seems there is nothing he cannot do. After starting dance classes as a child in Utah, Derek moved to England with ballroom dance champions Corky and Shirley Ballas to study dance, music, and theater. After becoming a world champion himself, he performed the lead role in the musical Footloose in London before joining the cast of the popular American television show. He holds the record for the most wins of any professional dancer on the series.
