Derek Hough made the day of one of his young fans, courtesy of Make-A-Wish.

According to the foundation, the six-time “Dancing with the Stars” champ granted the wish of 16-year-old Reese, who has epilepsy, by inviting her to hit the dance floor as his partner after watching him perform live in his Las Vegas revue “Derek Hough: No Limit” at the Venetian Resort.

Reese’s appearance onstage with Hough came as a complete surprise, after she and Hough had posed for photos.
