Dancing With the Stars’ Derek Hough to Host New ABC Show, Family Dance Off!
Derek Hough is going from Dancing With the Stars to dancing with families on Family Dance Off. The fan favorite pro will host a one-hour special on Sunday, August 25, 2013 that features five dance-lovin’ families who will compete for $10,000 on a Hollywood stage!
Though he is no stranger to dance competitions, in this one, he won’t be putting on his dancing shoes — at least not in an official capacity. Per an ABC press release, the five families will dance in front of a live studio audience, all with a variety of backgrounds and styles, and then the audience will vote. Yep. No judges here, though maybe Len, Carrie Ann, and Bruno will stop by?
All in all, one family will win the grand prize of $10,000, and Family Dance Off all takes place on August 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. As the network puts it, Derek has “transformed America’s favorite actors, athletes and singers into dancers, and now he’s helping real-life families dance dream become a reality.” Aww!
Derek couldn’t be more excited. After the news, he tweeted:
I'm hosting a new show called Family Dance Off !
Put it in your calendars .
