A source described the couple as "warm, affectionate, and worry-free" during their date. Although neither of the two parties has confirmed nor denied dating rumors, Val Chmerkovskiy and Jenna Johnson's regular public appearances together were enough proof that they were dating.

The dancing pros first met when Jenna Johnson joined the lineup of "Dancing With the Stars" in 2014. She was one of the choreographers before she was promoted as a professional instructor and was paired with Jake T. Austin in the previous season.

Val Chmerkovskiy, on the other hand, first appeared as a student in the dance program in 2006. He made his debut as a pro with Kelly Monaco in 2012. The Ukrainian-American dancer has won two championships with Rumer Willis and Laurie Hernandez in seasons 20 and 23, respectively.

Meanwhile, "Dancing With the Stars" will soon return for a whole new season on ABC.
