Derek Hough Freestyles with Chelsie Hill, a professional dancer ...

Derek Hough, a professional dancer who uses a wheelchair, was recently interviewed for American Dance Movement.

Hill thanked Hough for making her feel like a person and not a person defined by being different in her Instagram story.

Here's what Hill had to say:

On an impeccable freestyle, Hill & Hough ripped up the dance floor.

Derek Hough (@derekhough) has shared a post.

Hill said in an Instagram post before the filming process that she was so eager to produce additional content for the American Dance Movement.

Today is a beautiful morning. Im so excited for American Dance Movement to do another documentary. It's been done for years, and I've been doing it for the last five or six years, which is really cool. I'll be back soon to film again, so please join the fun!

Hough later uploaded a video of their fantastic freestyle routine and captioned it, Had the pleasure of meeting @chelsiehill and having a little impromptu freestyle moment, to which Hill replied, SO FUN! Thanks for dancing with me, and im looking forward to doing it again!

Cheryl Burke and Sasha Farber, as well as Houghs season 18 partner Amy Purdy, both a double amputee and Paralympic snowboarder, both placed second on the podium.

Hill later thanked Hough for making her feel like a person today.

@chelsiehill's tweet is a part of the blog.

Hill shared how freakin cool it was to dance with Hough and thanked him for treating her like any other dancer on her Instagram stories.

Derek invited me to dance with him today, which was so cool because he literally just walked up to me and offered to dance, freestyle, and see what I can do, according to Hill. To me, this person saw me as a dancer and not as someone that was just completely different. He was interested and he wasn't scared.

Derek, thank you for the opportunity to be seen as a person and as a dancer. It's hard to explain, but it's so cool. I'm a fan of Dancing With the Stars, naturally, who doesn't?

Hill added that one day, there may be a full-time wheelchair user on Dancing With the Stars.

Rollettes, a wheelchair dance team based in the Los Angeles area, has been founded and operated by Hill. According to the website, the organization is committed to education, disability representation, and female empowerment.

Hill was a dancer from a young age, then at the age of 17, she was involved in a drunk driving accident that resulted in paralysis from her waist down.

Despite this, she continued to pursue her dreams of becoming a professional dancer.

She writes:

To be the only person in a wheelchair with a room full of able-bodied dancers and a lot of choreographers that didnt even give me time on the day for the first time, it wasnt easy at the beginning. However, my love and passion for dance outweighed anything that anyone could ever say to me, and I wanted to prove to them that dance is dance, whether you are walking or rolling.

On Hills' Instagram, she revealed on August 4 that she and her husband Jay Bloom are expecting their first child together. She also shared a stunning video of herself dancing with professional dancer Peyton Matthias.

On Disney Plus, Dancing With the Stars returns for its 31st season on Monday, September 19.
