Dancing With the Stars: Derek Hough dance improv

Wait until you see his interpretation of the Chmerkovskiy

Derek Hough might be a five-time Mirror Ball Trophy champion, but can he make up random dance moves on the spot?

EW recently visited Hough where he took a little break from rehearsing with Bindi so we could task him with a little round of improv — dance style!  Of course, being the pro he is, Hough fully committed whether it was showing off some abs and an accent for the Chmerkovskiy, getting zen for the Bergeron Boogie (who knew Tom was a yogi?), or even awkwardly rocking out for the Taylor Swift Squad.
