The siblings, best known for the years they've competed on Dancing with the Stars as professional partners, will be heading out on a 42-city show called Move Live On Tour this spring, People reported Tuesday.

"Anywhere we go, we always get asked, 'When are you and your brother going to do something together?' Now it's the right time," Julianne, 25, told People. "We're going to do dances and performances, but we also want to get people inspired and active, and we're going to incorporate the audience into the show."

"We want the show to be interactive," added Derek, 28. "We want people to wear comfortable clothes because we're going to get them up and dancing."

The North American tour, which kicks off in Park City, KS on May 25, will reportedly feature solo, duet and group performances in many different styles and genres of dance -- including ballroom and hip-hop. The tour will have guest performers and 10 other backup dancers working with the Houghs, who originally choreographed the show with the help of Tabitha and Napoleon D'uomo.

In addition to dancing, the tour will also feature Julianne singing and Derek playing his original music. Julianne's two Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs, Lexi and Harley, will also reportedly make an appearance.

"Our big passion and goal with this tour is that people leave inspired and motivated to do whatever they want to do in their lives," Julianne told People.

Tickets for Move Live On Tour go on sale Friday and special VIP packages will be available through VIPNation.com, giving fans the chance to purchase premium tickets. Not only will the premium tickets reportedly include backstage tours, they'll also allow fans to attend pre-show parties and actually meet Julianne and Derek.

Derek is a five-time Dancing with the Stars champion and Julianne has won the reality dancing competition twice.

Julianne left the series before its ninth season premiered in order to pursue other career ventures. She's since released a country music album and starred in Footloose and Safe Haven among other movies. Julianne has yet to return to Dancing with the Stars as a pro although she's performed on the show to promote her movies and had served as a guest judge once last season.

Derek has appeared on Dancing with the Stars since the show's fifth season back in 2007, however, he took Season 12 off to take on an acting role in the movie COBU 3D. Derek is currently competing in Dancing with the Stars' eighteenth season with double-amputee snowboarding champion Amy Purdy as his celebrity partner.
