Alan and The Bachelorette star grew incredibly close during their three months of working together on Dancing with the Stars' 28th season, and because of that tight bond, dating speculation naturally came with the territory.
"Hannah and I, it was a different partnership than I've ever experienced before," Alan toldPeople in a recent video interview.
"Because after rehearsals almost every day we would go and eat and just hang out, and that's very rare when you spend six hours with someone that you want to still see them afterwards."
The professional dancer and choreographer added, "So I'm really lucky that me and Hannah became such good friends."
When asked whether there's potential for more than just a friendship between the two, Alan replied with a laugh, "I don't think so. I think it's just friends."
But it's apparent Alan and Hannah's friendship will continue.
"Hannah and I built such an amazing relationship during these [past] 11, 12 weeks that it's nice to look back and reflect on how amazing this experience has been and what a friend I made in Hannah," Alan shared with the magazine.
Hannah said during the Dancing with the Stars' finale that rehearsing and performing with Alan week to week allowed her "to trust somebody again."

"Hannah and I built such a good relationship throughout the season that we could really trust each other and when we had to work on a note or a critique that the judges gave us, we just went through it and we realized that the more we put in during the rehearsals, the better it's going to feel on Monday," Alan explained.
"And after every show on Monday, we looked back at the dances and we would feel good if we knew that we gave it our best."
Hannah, however, often received some tough love from the DWTS judges, especially from Carrie Ann Inaba.
At points during the show, Hannah admittedly felt personally attacked or picked on, but the reality TV star and Carrie Ann ended up hashing things out before the season came to an end.
Alan agreed the Dancing with the Stars judges were "extra critical" of Hannah's performances, but he's apparently not bitter about it.
