Julianne Hough


Julianne was born into a dance family. Her parents, all four grandparents, and all four siblings (Derek, Katherine, Marabeth and Sharee) are trained dancers. She formally trained at Center Stage Performing Arts Studio in Orem, Utah, before moving to London at age 10 to attend the Italia Conti Academy. At 15, she became the youngest dancer and only American to become the Junior World Latin Champion and International Latin Youth Champion at the Blackpool Dance Festival. Upon moving to L.A. from Utah, she landed a dancing gig on the game show, Show Me the Money. At age 18, she joined the Dancing with the Stars tour as a company dancer before joining the cast of the hit ABC show for Seasons 4-7. She won her first two seasons in a row with Apolo Anton Ohno and Helio Castroneves, respectively, becoming the youngest dancer to win the show twice. She nabbed Outstanding Choreography nominations for her Dancing with the Stars work for the 2008 and 2009 Creative Arts Emmys. Her choreography skills also led to collaborating with Gwen Stefani on the singer’s “Wind It Up” video. Julianne has also released two dance-themed fitness videos, 2009’s Dance with Julianne: Cardio Ballroom and 2010’s Dance with Julianne: Just Dance!
