Based on the wild cheers inside the ballroom, Cheryl Burke and her injured partner William Levy gave viewers what they wanted on Monday night’s Dancing with the Stars. But don’t expect the pair to take things a step further with a mid-routine smooch like the one Derek Hough and partner Maria Menounos shared on the Latin-themed episode.
“We like to leave it up to the imagination,” Burke, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after the performances, adding that she and Levy have no plans to kiss.
But unlike judge Carrie Ann Inaba, Levy, 31, and Burke don’t worry about whether an actual lip-lock was too much for the dance.
