This time it’s called Move: Beyond, and will be kicking off in April 2017, with over 50 stops across the nation.
Julianne announced the tour on her website, and the siblings also made an appearance on GMA this morning to promote the tour, which will have variety of dance styles, including ballroom, tap, salsa, hip-hop and “everything in between.”
Here’s everything we know about the tour so far:
The Choreography: “We have some really cool images that we want, you know, [to create] this really cool place,” Derek said of the earth elements inspiration. “They just kind of inspired us just from like a … just kind of getting grounded from a grounding place.”
The Costumes: “Glamourous and modern and fresh,” Julianne says. “But also one thing that is very different that we’re going to incorporate this year is the use of props and the use of projection and stuff like that, which we really didn’t do the last couple of times.”
The Meet and Greets: “Obviously one of our favorite parts about the tour is not just being on stage and putting on a great show — it’s connecting with the fans. So we have all these VIP experiences where [fans] know we’re going to come back. There’s like a whole lounge area where we get to have conversations and talk [to guests.] We always go over in our meet and greets because we literally love talking so much to them, and answering questions and hearing about their lives and stuff. So we’re excited about that part too.”
Corny Collins was based on a real person – Buddy Deane, and his show was actually cancelled because he was all for integration in the 1960s!
“That integration really changed not just culture and humanity, but dance,” he shared with NKD mag. “Me being a dancer and learning the history of it, and seeing where all these moves and trends came from, it’s pretty cool…It’s about that time and what it meant. To do The Twist was considered vulgar.”
Olivia Holt, Yara Shahidi, and Brec Bassinger strike poses at the Brooks Brothers Celebrates the Holidays with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital event on Saturday (December 3) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
In his cover story with NKD mag, the dancer/actor confirms that he’s leaving the show in 2017, and moving on with NBC’s new dance competition, World of Dance, as a judge.
“It’s going to be a great year. It’s going to be a transitional year for me. A new chapter,” he shares.
Derek adds, “The show is my family. It’s really important to me, and its been a part of my life for so long…My reason for not returning is when I look at that room, I kind of feel like I’ve done what I can in that room and in that space. I’ve accomplished so much in that space. I feel like I need to move onto a different space.”
Derek also has the Singin’ In The Rain on Broadway in 2017.
