Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus at DWTS Practice in LA on March 5, 2013
Let the Dancing With the Stars Season 16 flirtation begin!
Prepping for their chemistry in the ballroom, Tristan MacManus and star partner Dorothy Hamill were seen hugging it out outside of the DWTS studios in LA yesterday (March 5). Yes, we know Tristan has a beautiful girlfriend — so “back off,” ladies! — but we're loving the early team bonding.
Click through the gallery to see Team Tristothy having a blast before rehearsals. As for what's going on inside the studio? Tristan and Dorothy will be doing Contemporary — a new DWTS dance category — for their first performance.
Hey, if they're as good at Contemporary as they are at hugging it out, then we should be in for a treat!
Dancing With the Stars Season 16 premieres March 18, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
