“I have been an avid fan of @natgeo as long as I can remember. My Dad had a massive collection until one day I unfortunately destroyed them all by cutting the Tigers and Lions out of them. What? I was making a collage on my wall. Sorry Dad, I promise one day I’ll replace them all🙏🏼,” Derek shared on Instagram. “Today is a very exciting day as my life long Love of Dance and National Geographic collide in a brand new show !!!”
