Delurking finally because...OMG so excited!!
Derek Hough is going to choreograph their Olympic FD!!
This week, I also started working on a very special routine that's not for the show. I'm choreographing a number for our world champion ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White to perform at the Olympics next year. They graciously asked me to do it and how could I say no? It's truly an honor and they're amazing. They won silver in Vancouver, are five-time U.S. champions and two-time world champions. If you're not familiar with them, I highly recommend you check out some of their routines. They actually taught me a new move that I might have to do on the show. It's a trick and Kellie would be able to do it. Maybe you'll see it in a few weeks!
That is so cool! But are we sure it's the FD? It just says one of their olympic routines. Either way, this is exciting news
Oops, Whitney you are correct. In my excitement I just assumed it was the FD. It very well
could be the SD. Derek + finnstep would go very nicely together.
Either way, it will be great, of that I am sure. Derek is my favorite dancer AND choreographer
on DWTS. And Meryl and Charlie are my fav skaters so this is a dream come true! <3
Also...what move do we think M/C taught him? I'm assuming a lift. I'll be tuning
in Monday night to see if I recognize anything in their routine.
Exciting news, indeed. I bet it's for the SD. Great to know they are wasting no time in preparations. I bet it will be complete by end of Spring.
That is great news! Derek does fantastic choreography on DWTS. His work fits their style perfectly!
Very exciting! Can't wait till we hear more!
"He's so approachable and if she were anymore beautiful, she wouldn't look real." - Scott Hamilton on Meryl and Charlie
Meryl Davis and Charlie White - 2011 World Ice Dance Champions and 2013 World Ice Dance Champions!
That's exciting news! He does great choreo on DWTS so i'm looking forward to seeing how that translates to the ice.
Nevertheless, I'm happy that they are loved in Japan. Ice dance hardly ever gets any publicity in US newspapers.
Very excited about Derek Hough doing choreo for them
I'm thrilled that Derek Hough is working with them for the Olympic season! I too am expecting it to be for the Finnstep, what a great choice. I'm expecting a lot. Hopefully the choreography is just as special (and creative!) for the FD.
Came across this video of him doing a foxtrot.
I'm excited now. His choreography is awesome!!

Funny how V/M fans storm and comment about V/M.
I'm pretty sure Derek has no clue who V/M are
Hopefully,Maybe, Possibly just possibly...Derek can post practice videos of them.
But I'm not counting on it.
