Karina Smirnoff fell on Monday night's 'Dancing With the Stars' smack dab in the middle of the ballroom floor. Not really something you want to do in a dress in front of a nationwide audience.

The tumble happened near the beginning of her Paso Doble routine, when she accidentally slipped on partner Ralph Macchio's coat.

Luckily, the pair recover nicely -- enough to receive a score of 24 out of 30 from the judges. Even better, it wasn't even the lowest score of the night.

A visibly shaken Smirnoff thanked Macchio after the routine was over for helping her find her footing again.

Check out the full routine below.
