Julianne & Derek Hough Reunite on the ‘DWTS’ Dance Floor

The Hough siblings are back in action. Julianne and Derek Hough are embarking on a brand new adventure to showcase their professional ballroom skills. Not only are they eager to entertain, but they also want to inspire the next generation of dancers.

Teaming up with DanceOne, the Houghs plan to create exciting dance conventions and workshops across the country. Ambitiously, by 2026, they hope to take their project international.

Each fall, fans can catch Derek and Julianne Hough on Dancing With The Stars, where they now serve as judge and hostess. Aside from this, their new collaboration with DanceOne promises to be equally thrilling.

“Just looking at the dance industry over the last however many years, Derek and I have been so fortunate that we’ve been a big part of that in the commercial sense,” Julianne shared with PEOPLE.

“Looking back at where we came from was like, man, we wouldn’t be where we’re at without the training and the mentorship and the dedication that it takes, but we’re at that stage of our life where a contribution is important,” Julianne continued.

“We want to connect with the next generation of dancers, helping them move forward. Latin and Ballroom is where we came from, but we also want to be able to infuse the multi-genres, so we feel like we’re going to be able to bring a new fresh spin on the convention and competition world. That’s exciting, and it feels good to be a part of it.”

“Our goal is to bring two worlds together. The dance competition world is thriving — the talent is unbelievable,” Derek remarked. “Then also the Ballroom and Latin world, which is its own world, we want to marry those together, and to bring the coaches and teachers who trained us to have masterclasses.”

As Derek Hough has often said, anyone can dance. While budding professional dancers will undoubtedly find immense value in the workshops and conventions, the siblings emphasize that dance is also a fantastic way to exercise.

“The dance world has been its little niche community for a long time, and television shows like Dancing With The Stars have helped more people fall in love with it,” Julianne continued. “It really is this athletic art form. As far as the younger generation goes, we really encourage people to dance and to move. It’s not just a way of having discipline and self-confidence and self-awareness, but it’s also a wonderful means to tap into yourself mentally — it’s amazing for your health in all aspects.”
