Las Vegas - Derek North is a lead performer of the male revue, "Men of The Strip," hosted by Jeff Timmons from 98 Degrees, which has its own show on the E! network.
He is the latest edition of the "Men of The Strip" team, which he considers an absolute privilege. "It's definitely an honor. They have been working on it for a while, building the brand, and I got to join in and see all the hard work they are putting in. They keep getting better and better," he said.
On working with "Men of The Strip" owner Mike Foland and creative director Glenn Packard and Jeff Timmons, he remarked, "Working with Glenn was great, since I had never had any choreography or dance training before, but I love learning new things, and synchronizing with the other dancers. Jeff has always been great and very positive all the time. Mike is the same way, he's very supportive."
North added, "Living in Las Vegas was a great experience. I was living with Keith Webb and Joel Sajiun. didn't know any of the guys, but my roommates helped me succeed. They were really nice."

He admitted that he has been "pretty athletic" his whole life, and he is enjoying performing and working out. "I played football, basketball and a little bit of baseball," he said.
Regarding his plans for the future, he aspires to help make "Men of The Strip" as big as it can be.
Particularly impressive about North is that he has strong family values. "That is what my mom and dad instilled in me when I was a kid. I watched how hard they worked, and my main goal is to be able to take care of my family," he said.
North expressed his sorrow for the untimely death of Nate Estimada, and had nothing but the kindest words for him. "Although I didn't know Nate as long as the other guys did, from the moment I met him, he was really nice to me. Being a new guy in the squad, he always treated me nice," he said.
