Young Julianne And Derek Hough Join DWTS’ Mark Ballas For Mind-Blowing Dance Routine


It’s no surprise that Dancing With The Stars siblings Julianne and Derek Hough are incredible dancers. We’ve been watching them bust a move on the ballroom dance competition for years now.

Along with their best buddy Mark Ballas, the three have a combined ten wins on DWTS, with Derek having the most, six. It comes as no surprise that these three are a force to be reckoned with on the show, seeing as they all grew up dancing profesisonally together. 

When Julianne was ten years old, she and Derek moved to London to train and live with award-winning dancers Corky and Shirley Ballas, parents to Mark Ballas. Their training and competition turned them into the dancers they are today.

Their talent, from the beginning, is undeniable. As you can see, in this video from one of their Latin competitions from when they were young kids, the Hough siblings and Ballas always had the right moves.

The fiery choreography and clean precision earned them applause throughout the routine. At one point, each of them showed off how many pirouettes they could do in a row in a sort of dance-off. In the end, Julianne won in our eyes with style points. 

Watch their mind-blowing performance below, and keep in mind, they are just kids!
