Meryl Davis and Maks Chmerkovskiy reunite on the dance floor, two weeks after taking the Mirror Ball trophy on Dancing with the Stars. We knew these two could reunite again in the future, but it’s only been a couple of weeks.

For fans, the Examiner reported that a romance between the two seem perfect. “After watching the two compete during season 18, how could they not be involved,” the site wrote. The chemistry between them seem great, and they showed it on the dance floor.

The DWTS vet, 34, shared a picture of their reunion via Instagram on Tuesday, June 3, writing, “All is right in the world again! Got my long awaited hug!” In the photo, Chmerkovskiy wears a suit and has his arm around Davis’ waist.

One night earlier, Us Weekly caught up with the season 18 champ at the Fred and Adele Astaire Awards in New York City, where he dished about their “perfect partnership” on DWTS. Asked to talk about their bond, he teased, “About our romance?”

“I love her. I love her!” he raved. “I love her as a person and for what she has allowed me to do with our choreography and how much she’s embraced it…She’s a brilliant person, and she’s also very normal. I enjoyed my time with her. It was sad when the season was over.” He noted, though, that they still meet up for dinner.

The DWTS winners were also spotted out together shortly after their victory on May 20. “Maks and Meryl were super touchy-feely,” a source said, who insist they’re just friends. “Before dinner they were in a corner talking really close. He kept kissing her on the forehead and was doting on her.”
Another insider said, however, that Chmerkovskiy is “that affectionate with all women. He always acts like that. It’s how he is, very touchy-feely.”

Meryl began skating at age five on a local lake in the winter. She started out as a single skater, but began doing ice dance at age eight. She got as high as Midwestern sectionals in novice ladies before quitting singles to focus on ice dancing.

She was teamed up with Charlie White by her coach, Seth Chafetz, in 1997 or 1998.

In 2009, Davis said: “Charlie and I grew up 10 minutes apart from each other. Our parents are best friends. We’ve grown together and know each other so well.”

In their first season together, Davis/White won the silver medal at the Junior Olympics in the Juvenile division. In the 2000-01 season, they qualified for the 2001 U.S. Championships, placing 6th as Novices. The next season they won the silver medal as novices and then moved up to Junior.

During the team event at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Davis and White earned 20 points in two first place finishes for the U.S. team, which was awarded bronze medal overall. Davis and White posted record scores in both the short program and freedance and were awarded the first Olympic gold medal for Americans in ice dancing. They performed with Stars on Ice in 2014.

Maks first appeared in the 2nd season of the ABC series Dancing with the Stars partnered with actress Tia Carrere. They finished in sixth place. The following season, he and partner singer Willa Ford came in seventh place.

He returned to the ABC series in March 2007 for Season 4, his time partnered with boxer Laila Ali. They made it to the finals and finished in third place. In Season 5 of Dancing with the Stars, he was partnered with Melanie Brown and the couple received second place.

In February 2013, Maks announced his departure from Dancing with the Stars for Season 16. He returned on the fifth week of Season 16 for “Len’s Side-By-Side Challenge”, where he danced with Anna Trebunskaya in an Argentine Tango with brother Val and his partner Zendaya and in a Jive with Jacoby Jones and his partner Karina Smirnoff. For season 17, he was a guest judge during the semifinals in Week 10.

For season 18, he was paired with Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis. They were announced the winners on May 20, 2014, marking Maks’ first win. They also have the current highest average of any dancer of the show with a 28.4 average, and are tied with Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough with the most amount of perfect 30′s earning a total of 6.
