Derek Hough Says He Started Out Dancing 'Against His Will'!

Derek Hough stays hydrated while gearing up for a day of practice at the studio on Saturday (September 24) in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old Dancing With The Stars pro, who was joined by his dance partner Marilu Henner, was also spotted getting in some practice the day before.

Derek recently opened up about his early days of dancing, saying he was “pretty much dragged to dance lessons” at first.

“I actually got into dancing against my will,” he told People, discussing how he is the only boy among four sisters.

Derek added that he is grateful for the extra push now, though.

“When you put music on and you start dancing, you start moving, you sort of lose yourself,” he shared. “But by losing yourself, you find yourself. There’s something about moving, especially moving to music, that I can challenge anybody not to feel something.”

Derek Hough Calls Himself A Hypocrite After This Week's 'DWTS'

Derek Hough heads out of the dance studio for a little break on Wednesday afternoon (September 21) in Los Angeles.

The 31-year-old Dancing With The Stars pro opened up in his latest TVGuide blog that he feels like a hypocrite after his foxtrot with Marilu Henner.

“One of my pet peeves is when people don’t do anything at the beginning of the routine to kill time, and I kind of did that with the red cloth,” he revealed. “I was like, ‘Ugh, what am I doing?!’ I was doing everything that I hate! Such a hypocrite! But it was impossible to foxtrot to the flute portion of the song. It’s OK. We got through it!”

Derek added later about Jake T. Austin‘s elimination, “I was a bit surprised Jake was eliminated. But after thinking about it, it’s all about connecting to the audience. It’s not just about the scores. Your votes are so important and we all are truly grateful you guys take the time out to vote for us.

Derek Hough Gives Shout Out To DWTS Security Team After Ryan Lochte Protest

Derek Hough holds onto a cool bottle of water while arriving at the dance studio on Friday afternoon (September 16).

The 31-year-old dancer met up with his DWTS partner Marilu Henner to work on their foxtrot for next week’s show.

“I have to give a huge shout-out to our security. We’ve known those guys forever and they were just awesome. They were quick and on top of it. We were all like, ‘Yeah! Go get ‘em!’” he shared in his TVGuide blog about the Ryan [Lochte] protest. “Julianne told me afterward that she wished I waited for security to escort the women out because they could’ve had something on them. I was like, ‘I wasn’t worried about that. I would’ve just ducked. I’ve got my rhinestone jacket on!’”

Derek added, “All jokes aside, it was a very scary incident. It was a really weird thing that’s never happened in 23 seasons. With everything that’s been going on right now with shootings, it puts you on edge when stuff like that happens. We’re all very grateful that everyone is safe and we’re all moving on and looking ahead.”
