Kym Johnson is paired with Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec on this season of Dancing With the Stars, and now some sources say the pro dancer is engaging in a form of dance with Herjavec off the dance floor, too. One such source told People magazine that the two were spotted engaging in some perfect choreography--in the form of dating.

It was during an after party for the March 16th season premiere that Kym Johnson and Robert Herjavec were reportedly "canoodling."

"They came in holding hands and were caressing each other's backs," the source explained.

The pair arrived together, and "were having a good time and enjoying each others company," a second source said during an interview with People.

It wasn't long ago that Herjavec admitted he hit rock bottom last summer and even considered taking his own life after separating from his wife of 24 years.

"It's been a terribly difficult year," he said. "We were great parents and a great team, but over time we drifted apart."

Eight hour days rehearsing for Dancing With the Stars--with Kym Johnson--seem to have helped him in more ways than one.

"Kym has become a great friend, and it is so much fun to be able to share this experience with her," he said of his dance pro partner and purported love interest.

Does he hope to win the mirror ball trophy this season?

"I'm just super excited," he admits, "because it's a different experience, one that's definitely out of my comfort zone."

Do you suppose Kym Johnson will wind up being Robert Herjavec's personal mirror ball trophy? Even if he doesn't win Dancing With the Stars, might he leave the show with something even more important--a new lease on life with a new love?
