Derek Hough is following in his younger sister Julianne's footsteps — except forward and in flats — by stepping from the small to big screen in the upcoming dance movie "Make Your Move."

Hough makes his feature film debut (if you don't count appearing as a Hogwarts student at age 16 in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone") as a New Orleans dancer transplanted to New York City. He meets Aya — Korean pop superstar BoA also making her first big-screen appearance — who leads a hip-hop dance crew at NYC's hot nightspot. They have an instant spark, but he runs afoul of her tough-guy brother (Will Yun Lee).

Director Duane Adler is a dance movie veteran, having written earlier smashes "Save the Last Dance" and the original "Step Up." And the film features choreography from Emmy-award winning couple Napoleon and Tabitha D'umo from "America's Best Dance Crew" and "So You Think You Can Dance."

"Make Your Move" hits the big screen on April 18.
