Utah dancers Julianne and Derek Hough plan touring show
Utah natives and superstar siblings Julianne and Derek Hough are launching a new touring dance production, in which they will headline.
The "Move Live On Tour" launches May 28 and comes to West Valley City’s Maverik Center, on Wednesday July 16. Tickets go on sale Saturday, March 22.
The "Dancing With the Stars" champions are staging the show with Tabitha and Napoleon D’umo, best known for their Emmy Award-winning choreography on "So You Think You Can Dance." It will includes sets, costumes and a cast of dancers. The Houghs will perform solos, duets and group performances in styles ranging from ballroom and tap to salsa and hip-hop and everything in-between.
"No matter where we go in the world, the question we hear most from people is ‘when are you going to do something together?’" the siblings said in a news release issued Tuesday. "We feel that everything we’ve done up to this point has led us to creating this show and we can’t wait to share it with our fans."
The pair, both of whom are also accomplished singers and musicians, promise musical surprises and special guest appearances in the show they describe as "a cross between a Broadway spectacular and the hippest, coolest dance party you’ve ever been to."
On each tour stop, the Houghs and their touring troupe plan to involve local dance groups and non-profit organizations in the experience.
