Dancing with the Stars frontrunners Karina Smirnoff and Ralph Macchio took a break from rehearsals to sit courtside at the Lakers game Sunday night – and went along for all the behind the scenes fun!

“We’ve been rehearsing really hard and this is going to be our little time away from the dance floor,” Karina told in our exclusive video blog.

“For a couple of hours we’re going to see the Lakers! And getting ready for a big day (Monday) and take a little breather on Sunday,” Ralph confessed.

The Karate Kid and Karina hit up the gifting suite for American Express presents The Shoppes at The Palazzo Jimmy Choo Shopping Event and even practiced their ballroom moves for the camera to give a sneak peak at Monday night’s dance.

“We’re ready! We’re enjoying a little rest not being in the rehearsal studio and just have a couple of hours where she’s not cracking the whip,” Ralph joked, “and the cameras aren’t on for the show. But we’re ready -  we had a great first week, and we’re going to try to do that again.”
