Came to LV for my birthday solely to see Derek’s show. There’s nothing missing from this show. Incredible energy and jaw-dropping talent. He is great interacting with the audience. No bad seat in this theatre. Highly recommend this show.

5.0 star rating Laurie Lange from Minneapolis, Minnesota


I don’t even know what to call what we witnessed! It was absolutely stunning and amazing. He is so very talented, not only with dance but singing and musical instruments. And his cast was equally complimentary. And Haley…. Man, they are spectacular together. It s really hard to say enough good about this and I hope people keep goi g to see him. I would go again, if I could.

Disclaimer: I am not a particularly big fan of Derek, or dance in general. I watch WoD fairly regularly, but have never watched DWTS. Took my wife to the show for our anniversary, and I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining it was. I was most impressed by how incredibly quick Derek's feet are. Dude sings and plays guitar pretty decently too. I was a little disappointed in not seeing more explosive jumps, and better synchronization of his troupe on their group routines. I thought the male dancers were not quite as accomplished as the females, though this may be by design to make Derek stand out a bit more; and that's OK, he IS the star of the show. All in all, I completely understand the passion his fans have for him, given his talent, charisma, and yes, good looks.

My wife and I attended Derek's first show on Weds. I thought the dancing was great and overall a good show for the first one. However I was disappointed even though Derek talking with the crowd complimented the live music. It was not live, it was a track with live musicians augmenting it mostly the drummer. At times the bass player and Sax player were merely props to the track. I don't mind that they used a track but for Vegas and charging Vegas prices even a small live band due to space would have made it much better. The same goes for them tapping to a track of tap noise. They are were both terrific tap dancers and while the floor was not conducive to tap and tap sound, with Vegas techs and sound reinforcement I would have preferred hearing them actually tap even though it wouldn't have been perfect it would have brought a real live performance aspect to the show. Enjoyed the show but for a Vegas residency it should be stepped up.

Superb acrobatic quality dancing, costumes and staging first rate, music abysmal, unless you like the musicality of drums . audience loved his performances with his wife. enjoyed the show overall, though “drummed out” by the end.

3.0 star rating Ana from Las Vegas, Nevada


Very obvious Derek and his team are passionate and talented. They did a great job including audience in parts of the show. Think they can do better job with song selections. I know Derek loves his personal songs, but they can do songs from different eras and include top 10 hits of today, it be much more exciting. Was getting bored towards the end. Love his commitment and sincerity.
