The 27-year-old dancer dished to IceNetwork, “For me, it was an honor to be able to step into that world for a moment and to work with the champions. I was so blessed to be a part of that.”
Derek added, “We ended up getting into the dance studio, and it was great. They’re the most amazing people — amazing hearts, amazing spirits and just good, all-around people. When we actually ended up going to the rink and seeing them putting it on ice, it was remarkable to see how they translated it onto the ice. It was so impressive.”
