Karina and Maksim to dance at Emmys

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff, who recently broke off their engagement, are to dance at the Emmy Awards show in Los Angeles, CBS said.

The Dancing with the Stars and Burn the Floor professional dancers dated for about a year. Smirnoff's publicist confirmed this week the couple had called off their wedding plans.

However, CBS announced Thursday they are scheduled to dance together in a segment honoring dance in reality television on the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards show at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles Sept. 20.
