Derek and Julianne Hough's MOVE Live on Tour is BACK

You know, it's funny: Just the other day, I was thinking, "Hmm, I haven't heard anything about Derek and Julianne Hough recently. They've really been flying under the radar, those underachievers. What are they doing with themselves?"

Oh nope sorry scratch that—they are LITERALLY EVERYWHERE AT ALL TIMES and possibly the busiest dancers in showbiz.

Luckily for us, their schedule is about to get even crazier. Because in addition to performing with the Rockettes and competing  on "Dancing with the Stars" (Derek) and getting Grease-y and judging on "DWTS" (Julianne), the Houghs are bringing back their popular brother-and-sister show, MOVE Live on Tour.

That's right: Last year's MOVE tour was so successful that we're getting round two, ladies and gents! Creative directors Tabitha and Napoleon D'umo will return to craft all-new choreography (YAY), and this year's production will also tour to more and larger venues, including Radio City Music Hall in NYC. Just like last year, there'll be plenty of singing and cute sketches in addition to allllll kinds of dancing. (Visit moveliveontour.com for ticket info and the complete list of tour stops.)

Derek and Julianne announced the tour today on "Good Morning America." Naturally, "GMA" being "GMA," they also played a game that involved Derek showing off his running man skills. So, yeah: You should probably watch this.

5 of the Danciest TV Shows Streaming Right Now (and Where to Stream Them)

We're about two months into #SocialDisDancing, and let's be real—while we all wish we were spending every spare minute stretching, cross-training, or taking online classes, sometimes we just need to Netflix and chill.

We figure, if you're going to be watching TV anyways, why not make it dancy TV? After all, watching pros dance on-screen is basically dance class homework...or at least we'll say it is. Here are five of the danciest TV shows for you to watch—and where to find them.

The Making of "Center Stage," as Remembered by Its Dance Stars

Whether you first watched it in a theater two decades ago or on Netflix last week, odds are you feel a deep connection to Center Stage. The cult classic, which premiered May 12, 2000, is arguably the greatest dance film ever made. (Dance obsessives might take issue with the "cult" before "classic," not to mention the "dance" before "film.") Jody Sawyer's ballet journey—which combines oh-wow-I've-had-those-blisters realism with wait-does-she-have-magic-color-changing-pointe-shoes fantasy—stands the test of time, early-aughts fashion be darned. We've memorized its highly quotable lines, laughed with (and, gently, at) its heroes, and been inspired by its sincere love of dance and dancers.

To celebrate Center Stage's 20th anniversary, we asked five of its dance stars to talk through their memories of the filming process. Here are their stories of on-set bonding, post-puke kissing scenes, and life imitating art imitating life.
