Daughter of Backstreet Boys star AJ McLean gets dance lesson from Derek Hough: Watch the video

“The best experience of my life,” McLean wrote online.

After improving her dancing skills by competing on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in 2020, AJ McLean is now helping her daughter learn from the pros as well.

The Backstreet Boys singer shared a video on Tuesday of his 9-year-old daughter, Ava, walking into the dance studio with six-time Mirrorball champion Derek Hough.

Alongside the clip of the pair showing off their moves, McLean wrote, “Thank you @derekhough for doing a one-on-one lesson with Ava! Best experience ever. You are a true legend and a rock star!!”

Ava is one of McLean’s two daughters with his wife, Rochelle DeAnna McLean. They are also parents to 4-year-old Lyric.

McLean has many friends within the “Dancing With The Stars” family after appearing on season 29 of the show alongside pro Cheryl Burke.

The duo were sent home in the ninth week of the competition – the episode before the semi-finals. After her time on the show, McLean opened up about the impact of the experience.

“I learned very quickly in the first few weeks that, yes, it’s a dance competition, but there’s so much more to it,” he shared on “Good Morning America.”

“Those who are gone and those who are still there are moving forward, I wish everyone good luck,” he added.
