  • Quotes

    • Julianne: (on comparing being on tour with her brother Derek to the time they spend training in London when they were still teenagers) It was a time in my life where it was really, really hard work but the result was very fulfilling. Dancing is taking me back to my roots and giving me that energy and confidence. I'm just going for it now.

    • Julianne: (on her parents) Our parents are very cool. They are not super involved like stage moms and dads, but they are very proud.

    • Julianne: (on being on tour with her brother Derek) When you train together and travel together the relationship becomes very supportive.

    • Julianne: (on her relationship with her brother Derek) When you do have a bond like ours, it is more like a partnership, not necessarily a brother-sister thing.

    • Julianne: (on her doing the dance tour Move Live On Tour with her brother Derek Hough) We're going to do dances and performances, but we also want to get people inspired and active, and we're going to incorporate the audience into the show.

    • Julianne: Create whatever life you want! You have the power to do that by the way you think... Change your meaning and you'll find yourself with a new purpose!!

    • Julianne: We all have the power to create the life we want to live!

    • Julianne: Being open is a hard thing to do because you feel vulnerable! What I've realized recently though is the more open and vulnerable I am 1. The more powerful I feel, 2. The more I feel in control of my life, 3. The more faith I have in God, 4. The more feminine I feel, And of course, 5. The more I trust MY TRUE SELF! Being vulnerable/open is actually the strongest YOU you can be! This was something that I really learned this year!

    • Julianne: By the time I was 18, I wanted to be a professional dancer: I happened to be on Dancing With the Stars. When I was 19, I wanted to be a singer: At that age, I had my first record out. I said by the time I'm 22, I wanted to be a movie star...

    • Julianne: (on her being extroverted) I suck at [being guarded]. I'm an open book. I have no filter. And sometimes that's a bad thing. But at least you know it's honest.

    • Julianne: I've always wanted to sing country music. I've grown up with country music. I love how real everybody is, not just the artists, but the fans.

    • Julianne: I knew if I stayed in London my whole life would be dancing. I'd won almost every major title you can. I thought 'This really isn't my passion. I really want to sing,' and I knew I wouldn't be able to if I stayed there.

    • Julianne: A lot of people know me as a dancer, but this album shows a different side of me. I've experienced a lot for someone my age that a lot of people will be able to relate to.

    • Julianne: Apolo finds some of the dance movements very awkward. To turn out and open up the hips is, for him, very difficult. But he listens to everything I say and really tries to do exactly what I say, when I say it.
