Derek Hough Talks DWTS and World of Dance

It’s quite fascinating to hear Derek talk about how he came up with the Emmy nominated Kairos and the input from other folks on that dance. He also talks a good bit about World of Dance and how he often wasn’t happy with the results. Great interview. Whenever I watch his interviews, he strikes me as so genuine – much more so than any other male pro except maybe Mark. I love genuine. There is never anything put on or false.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko . To view my photography site, see Lisa Kay Photography.

World Of Dance Goodies,Tap Dancing Champion Kyle Van Newkirk Gives Advice To Young Dancers, And More

Hey! How many of you have been following “World Of Dance” this summer? Miss Heidi, Courtney, and I have been covering the show at PureWofD.com if you haven’t checked it out yet. You can catch up with all the news, music, and watch videos of all the dances so far (a few of them you can watch below). Miss Heidi has been working her Number Predictions and Courtney does up the Power Rankings every week just like when we cover Dancing With The Stars. Also, we just interviewed Tap Dancing Champion and sensation Kyle Van New Kirk who is from my area. He talks on his career so far and tells us all about his performances (I love his story on how he made a cane for the Duel round as he broke it multiple times before the live performance and had to keep remaking it). He tells us some things behind the scenes and gives advice to young dancers coming from remote areas, and lots more. Be sure to see it HERE when you get some time. It’s very near and dear to my heart as I spent time with his Mom and him at their lovely house and gardens and took photos. He played the piano for me. It was a surreal day to say the least (what I’d give to see him perform on DWTS!). Come check everything out! We’re having a lot of fun and he talent is off the hook.
