Dang, Derek!

EW has learned that Derek Hough will sit out the next season of Dancing with the Stars.

Hough will use that time to act. To wit: He’s headed to Broadway to star in Singin’ in the Rain, and he’s expected to return to Nashville for at least one episode.

The show’s winningest pro — he just won yet another Mirror Ball Trophy last season with Bindi Irwin — has sit out past seasons for other engagements but he’s never completely said goodbye to the show that made him a household name.

Dancing with the Stars will return on ABC March 21.
