New Orleans, LA (December 14, 2016) - Following the sold-out successes of both its 2014 inaugural run and a fan-demanded sophomore run in 2015, Move Live on Tour, featuring powerhouse duo JULIANNE & DEREK HOUGH, is back and better than ever in 2017 with an all-new experience - MOVE - BEYOND - LIVE ON TOUR. Julianne and Derek stopped by Good Morning America this morning to make their nationwide announcement, performing at the Times Squares studio and giving fans a taste of the high-energy choreography expected from the tour.
The Hough siblings are promising fans their biggest and best show yet, with brand-new stage production inspired by the elements - earth, wind, fire, and water - which the duo have infused into fresh, high impact choreography that only they can deliver. The show will bring fans on a journey of dance and music, taking inspiration directly from the four elements as an exploration of the human relationship with nature. The pair will be joined by the Move Company Dancers for group performances in styles ranging from ballroom and tap to salsa and hip-hop and everything in between.
"There is nothing like performing onstage in front of a live audience and this show is going to be like nothing we've done before," says Julianne. "For those that have been before or will be experiencing the show for the first time, it will transport them beyond their wildest imaginations and expectations."
Move - Beyond - Live on Tour will once again be co-created, choreographed and produced by Julianne and Derek Hough, who are joined by their all-star creative team. Superstar choreographer team Napoleon and Tabitha Dumo, also known as NappyTabs, will co-create, direct and supervise choreography for the tour as well. Move Live on Tour is a Faculty Production.
