Derek Hough heads into Pressed Juicery for an afternoon smoothie in Los Angeles on Friday (October 7).
The 31-year-old entertainer took a break from Dancing With The Stars practice with partner Marilu Henner for next week’s show.
“This week is going well so far. I was actually sick last week, so I’ve been recovering the past couple of days. I had a chest cough, which made me really nervous about my my voice, especially with Hairspray coming up in a couple weeks. But I’m feeling a lot better now,” Derek shared in his blog.
He added about how practice is going: “I’m going to take a different approach this week with Marilu. I want to have the movement come from her and have it be authentic and organic from her body. I’ll just be there to guide it. I want her to feel nonrestrictive and to feel like she can dance. We had two intense dances back-to-back, the tango and the paso, and I think the intensity was misinterpreted as stiffness in her mind. So with the Viennese waltz, we’re going to crank up the fluidity and the softness.”
