Derek Hough was born on May 17, 1985 in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. In his family, dance was loved and valued as all his grandparents and parents were dancers. He was taught dancing from early childhood. Derek Hough has won many professional Latin and ballroom dancing awards including the New York Dance Alliance Outstanding Dance, being named the LA Outstanding Dancer of the Year, a Blackpool U-21 Latin title and IDSF World Youth Latin Champion. He has set lots of records as a professional dancer and proven to be one of the best in this sphere. However, Derek rose to prominence after entering the television dance competition ‘Dancing with the Stars’ directed by Alex Rudzinski. Derek has added much to his net worth by winning the show five times, taking second place twice, and third once. He has been starring on the show since 2007.

He has also appeared in other television shows including ‘DanceX’ (2007), ‘Better With You’ (2011), ‘When I Was 17’ (2011), ‘Family Dance Off’ (2013) and ‘Nashville’ (2014).

In addition to the above mentioned television appearances, Hough has also appeared on the big screen, adding to his overall amount of net worth. He has appeared in ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’ (2001) directed by Chris Columbus, ‘Rock of Ages’ (2012) directed by Adam Shankman and ‘Make Your Move’ (2013) directed by Duane Adler.

Hough also won the Young Hollywood Award in 2014 and was honoured by Kaleidoscope Award and GLSEN Award the same year.
