Well love can happen anywhere and with anyone! After the grand premiere of the new season of Dancing With The Stars, we decided to take down the list of dancing couples who made news not just for their dancing abilities but also for their hookups.
'The Bachelor and The Bachelorette' is not the only TV show where you find love and a good partner. Dancing With The Stars has been another (informal) platform where stars fell in love with their choreographers. Most of the affairs started off strong but ended eventually. Maksim Chmerkovskiy has been in news for his many link ups at DWTS seasons. For example, Maksim has been romantically linked with Karina Smirnoff (once fiance) and even Meryl Davis who is apparently 'just friends'. However, the rumoured boyfriend of Jennifer Lopez has been very impressive when it comes to dancing.
Some actually fell in love but many just tried showmance to get more votes and be in the news as well. Here is a look at the hookups we have seen on Dancing With The Stars.

Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Dancers Maksim and Karina got engaged shortly after her split with Mario Lopez. Unfortunately, the professional dancers called off their engagement the same year.
