Amy Purdy & Derek Hough Become Disney Royalty for DWTS

Amy Purdy & Derek Hough Become Disney Royalty for DWTS

Derek Hough Has Found His Cinderella!

The 27-year-old pro dancer got down on bended knee for Amy Purdy on Monday night’s (April 14) Dancing With The Stars in Los Angeles.

“To be able to give this beautiful dance justice, that’s really what I wanted to do,” Amy dished to THR after their mesmerizing waltz set to Cinderella‘s “So This Is Love.”

She continued, “It was honestly one of the hardest, like just physically — even on my quads and muscles — one of the hardest dances we’ve done.”

Derek added, “It was one of those [dances] where you looked at it and you go ‘oh, it’s simple and sweet, but by far the most physical and challenging one’. [Amy] was really worried about being elegant and graceful and I think being a woman [or a] girl, you know, you want to always feel that way and I think that in that moment, there was a realization of ‘I can be beautiful. I can be graceful. I can be elegant.’ It was wonderful. It was a fairytale ending.”

“It’s kind of like I’m on stilts,” Amy recently told ABC News about her carbon fiber prosthetics. “Trying to be graceful when it goes heel-toe is a little challenging.”

She continued, “The human foot has bones and muscles and can balance back and forth. If you step and you maybe make a little mistake, your foot can compensate. But if I step in the wrong spot, my foot isn’t going to compensate because it’s just one piece of carbon fiber.”

Derek Hough: Amy Purdy's A Fast Learner

Derek Hough: Amy Purdy's A Fast Learner

Derek Hough makes silly faces with a fan outside the dance studio on Thursday afternoon (April 10) in Los Angeles.

The 27-year-old dance met up with his partner Amy Purdy for more rehearsals for their waltz on Dancing With The Stars next week.

“It’s awesome to be back with Amy again. We have the waltz this week and it’s our first ballroom dance, so we’re starting from scratch a little bit,” Derek writes in his weekly blog.

He continues, “It was a little rough in the beginning, but I think it’s going to be OK. We’re figuring it out. With ballroom and the waltz, the technique has a lot of rises and falls and poses and ankle movements to create a certain flow. She hasn’t done any of that yet in the dances we’ve had, so it takes some adjusting, but Amy‘s a fast learner…I’m really excited about the routine. It’s lighthearted and I think it’s going to be a really sweet dance.”
