Hough trained under Shirley Ballas in London.

During that time, he won a record-shattering six times, making him the only pro on the show to win six Mirroball Trophies. He would also become a judge on the show as well as on NBC's World of Dance from 2017 to 2020.
His Broadway credits include Burn the Floor and Footloose, the Musical, in which he played Ren. He has also made appearances in major motion pictures like "Rock of Ages" and “Harry Potter,” as well as staring in his own movie, Make Your Move. In 2014, he published his first book, titled "Taking the Lead: Lessons from a Life in Motion," which quickly became a bestseller on The New York Times Best Seller List. He has won three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Choreography out of an incredible eleven nominations.
