Julianne Hough A pro dancer on ABC's hit show "Dancing with the Stars." Julianne debuted and won with her partner, speed skater Apolo Anton Ohno. born into a Mormon family with three other siblings, Julianne  had dancing in their DNA. Both sets of grandparents were dancers and their parents actually met on a ballroom dance team in college.

From People Magazine Those shimmy minis and backless wonders that Julianne Hough dons on Dancing with the Stars? A weakness, she sighs. "I'm the first to admit it: I like being sexy!
