Derek Hough brings his new show to Mohegan Sun
The phrase “he’s a dancing machine” must have been created expressly for Derek Hough.
This guy has been dancing all his life, with TV devotees getting familiar with his ballroom expertise when he was part of “Dancing with the Stars,” where he led six celebrity partners to wins. He is now a judge on the TV show “World of Dance,” alongside J. Lo and Ne-Yo, and he has been in “Hairspray Live!” on TV and in “Footloose” on London’s West End.
He and sister Julianne have done some national tours together, and now Derek has struck out on his own. He brings his solo show to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday.
Hough will dance an array of styles, of course, from salsa to hip-hop. NappyTabs — Napoleon and Tabitah Dumo — have co-created, directed and supervised the choreography, so you know it’ll be cool.
Hough will also sing a few numbers during the night.
Derek Hough, 8 p.m. Saturday, Mohegan Sun Arena; $19-$39; 1-800-745-3000.
