Dancing With The Stars

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd Go to DWTS Party After Super Sexy Performance (PHOTOS)

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd might be keeping things casual while they're dance partners on Dancing With the Stars Season 18, but that's not stopping them from spending lots of quality time together.

The dancing duo, who's staying "as platonic as possible for now," according to James, was spotted leaving the DWTS after party at Mixology 101 in Los Angeles, California on April 28. Earlier in the night, James and Peta put on their sexiest performance yet, dancing the Samba during Week 7's Latin Night. During the dance, Peta stripped off James's shirt, revealing his chiseled muscles. The dance pro herself flaunted her bod in red lingerie. Peta even used the phrase "Rub up against me" during rehearsals. Just friends, eh?

The pair apparently also got close outside of the ballroom, when they went to Star magazine's Hollywood Rocks event last week. Time will tell what goes on with this showmance, but for now, click through the gallery to see photos of the dance partners at the after party!
