Take a look at these two tweets below. Derek Hough and Nappytabbs (choreographers that help with So You Think You Can Dance and who helped with Derek’s new movie, Cobu3D) announced they are official board members of the DizzyFeet Foundation. The DizzyFeet Foundation was founded in 2009 by Nigel Lythgoe, Adam Shankman, Dancing With The Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba, and Katie Holmes. Their mission is “to support, improve, and increase access to dance education in the United States.” In doing so, they help to “(1)provide scholarships to talented students studying at accredited dance schools, studios, or institutions; (2)establish national standards for dance education and an accreditation program for dance schools in all of the major styles of dance; and (3)develop, provide, and/or support dance education programs for disadvantaged children through and with local community organizations”. You can read more on their work at the DizzyFeet Foundation.
I am officially a DizzyFeet Foundation Board Member. Look forward working with a great group of people to help the arts .

As Heidi said privately, what an “interesting venture” for Derek to take… and a ‘giving back’ one as well!!!
In other Derek things, don’t miss visiting Pure Derek Hough when you get a chance. Heidi has posted some more Cobu3D instagrams of Derek. They are so good, they are iconic in my opinion!
