So my dad flew in for a few hours just to surprise me for my birthday. And when he showed up he said “ Well I didn’t know what to give you, so I thought I would give you a hug.” At the end of the show, I couldn’t think of a better way to end my birthday, than to live out those special moments we shared on these long road trips back in the day, singing “Born to Run” at the top of our lungs. But this time rocking out on stage. TOGETHER!!!! What a night 🙏🏼 Love you Dad
It’s my 12,410th rotation on earth and 34th trip around the sun today 👍🏼

🥁🥁 Trusting the Rhythm of your heart can feel incredibly vulnerable. Small nuances and changes help direct you towards authenticity. When people say listen to your heart, actually listen and feel the beat. Is it fast, slow, heavy, light, is it calm or is it excited. In making decisions it’s that little moment when your Heart skips a beat that gives you all the answers you need. Trust your instincts, trust your heart.

I still can’t get over last nights show. I’m pinching myself. The energy that was created in that sold out arena was palpable. It’s an incredible feeling to stand there hand in hand with such a talented, hardworking group of dancers, with an overwhelming sense of gratitude surging through our veins. The roar and volume of love that was not just heard but felt by us all , will be remembered for a long long time. To all 6,000 that came last night Thank you so much for not just showing up, but SHOWING UP!!!#dance #tour #epic #gratitude Derekhough.com for tickets

What is pressure? Fear of failure. But without failure we cannot learn. It is in moments of struggle and disappointment that we grow. Our problems can be our gifts, teaching us, sculpting us to become better. Don’t be afraid of the pressure, embrace the uncertainty and trust in yourself. You are stronger than you think. And with every struggle and failure there is more strength to be unlocked!!
I love the earth, can you tell? #earthday #everyday 🌎🌍🌏
I’m gonna be super chill tonight. Also me. #fridaynight
When we embrace And feel our hearts percussion, There’s no need for discussion, The truth of our connection Wipes away our false protection.

True Story: I don’t feel truly ready to perform until my hair is so hard, it feels like concrete. Must be from my ballroom competition years. #dance #performance #tour
On the edge #casual
Love working with @brianbowensmith . No photoshop, just camera techniques and good timing. After the picture is taken we all run over to the computer screen to see if we got the shot. It’s always cool to see the picture pop up and hear everyone’s reaction.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Moses Supposes . . From rehearsing and getting the steps just right, all the way to seeing the animation process.( Which I find fascinating) Check out how my version of Moses Supposes was made.
New Kitchen. Who dis? This project has almost killed me but it’s finally starting to pay off. 🙏🏼
When I first saw this iconic dance performed by Gene Kelly and Donald O’Conner, like so many, it instantly became a favorite. The musicality, athleticism and just swag they had was so exciting to watch. I’ve always wanted to learn this piece to challenge myself and pay homage to the greats. Collaborating with my friend @nortorok who brought the animation to life just made this project even more special. Truly remarkable how much creative patience goes into that process. Grab your tickets at DerekHough.com 👆🏼🎫to see me perform this piece LIVE! in your city. Can’t wait to see you there!! 59 cities April 5th-June 15th . @caleyandkelsey @jedwerbe @nortorok

COMPETE & WIN!! We are all on a Hero’s journey! With Hero’s there are always villains. For me my villain is my shadow false self (ego) telling me lies about who I am . Very sly and sneaky. The epic movie that’s happening within us is a competition, a battle. But know, that The Hero within is far more powerful!! We just need to give the hero(you) the right weapons and tools to defeat the inner villains. #motivation #hero #within #truth #competition #healthy #love #kindness #self
