Julianne Hough: Lady of the Week #8 (Feb. 2013)

Julianne Hough
(Safe Haven, Rock of Ages, Footloose)
Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=

Julianne Hough was born in Orem, Utah, one of five children. She came from a background of dancers, with both sets of grandparents being dancers, and her mother and father met while on a ballroom dancing team in college. She attended Center Stage Performing Arts Studio, and danced competitively from the age of nine. A year later, her parents sent Julianne and her brother Derek to London for a year to study with their coaches, Corky and Shirley Ballas. The siblings received training in song, theater, gymnastics, and several styles of dance, including jazz, tap and ballet. Hough got her big break as part of the professional dancers on the fourth season of Dancing With the Stars, where she was paired with gold medal-winning speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno. The pair won that season on the show. Julianne then returned the following season, winning again with her partner, two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Hélio Castroneves. Hough is also a country singer whose self-titled debut album was released in 2008.
Safe Haven is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author of The Notebook and Dear John. When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love.
