'Previously on The Next Step...'

0:00:030:00:04

The final score is...

0:00:040:00:06

96! CHEERING

0:00:060:00:08

The Next Step is moving on

0:00:080:00:10

and we're one step closer to winning Internationals.

0:00:100:00:13

'Ella takes the stage

0:00:130:00:16

'and she's doing MY choreography.'

0:00:160:00:19

My biggest mistake was believing Ella was my friend.

0:00:190:00:22

Normally, alternates aren't in any dances for Internationals

0:00:230:00:26

but Kate put me in this one dance.

0:00:260:00:28

All we kind of know is that it's a two to seven person dance.

0:00:280:00:32

We know there's a twist coming but we have no idea what it is.

0:00:320:00:36

MUSIC: Miami

0:00:390:00:43

Congratulations for making it this far.

0:00:540:00:58

'Right now all the captains of the remaining teams

0:00:580:01:01

'are meeting with the Internationals rep.'

0:01:010:01:03

And we're going to see what curveballs we have thrown at us.

0:01:030:01:07

Look around you because after today, half of you will be gone.

0:01:070:01:11

'The competition is down to 16 teams with four rounds left.

0:01:110:01:14

'I hope whatever they have planned for us'

0:01:140:01:17

isn't too crazy.

0:01:170:01:18

Now, as you know, you will be performing

0:01:180:01:20

the two to seven person dance.

0:01:200:01:22

But the only challenge you'll be facing

0:01:220:01:25

is that you'll be performing this dance...

0:01:250:01:28

blindfolded.

0:01:280:01:30

Blindfolded?

0:01:300:01:32

Go!

0:01:340:01:35

This is crazy.

0:01:380:01:40

# We

0:01:400:01:42

# We are gonna the show the world

0:01:420:01:46

# Everything we're made of

0:01:460:01:49

# We're gonna tear the roof off this place... #

0:01:490:01:57

Stand up!

0:02:020:02:04

RINGING

0:02:190:02:21

Hey, what's up, guys?

0:02:210:02:22

Hey, man. What's going on?

0:02:220:02:24

It's good right now, man. Internationals is crazy.

0:02:240:02:27

I can imagine. Yeah, man. It's crazy.

0:02:270:02:29

How you guys doing though?

0:02:290:02:30

Well, we actually have some good news for you, man.

0:02:300:02:32

Yeah? What's that? We got our first paid gig.

0:02:320:02:35

What? Yeah! No way.

0:02:350:02:36

Yeah. But we have to use a drum machine.

0:02:360:02:38

A drum machine? What?

0:02:380:02:40

I mean, technically, I'm not part of the band any more

0:02:400:02:43

because I did quit for Internationals.

0:02:430:02:45

But still, it still bothers me

0:02:450:02:46

that I'm not going to be a part of my band's first big gig.

0:02:460:02:50

I should probably actually be rehearsing right now so I should go.

0:02:500:02:52

All right. We'll see you later, man. All right. Take it easy, guys.

0:02:520:02:57

'I'm so pumped to be at Internationals. Don't get me wrong.

0:02:570:03:00

'But at the same time, I'm missing the band.

0:03:000:03:03

'More than I thought I would.

0:03:030:03:04

'Right now we're rehearsing our two to seven person dance - blindfolded.'

0:03:070:03:12

And it's not going well at all.

0:03:120:03:15

Sorry! Sorry, sorry!

0:03:150:03:18

'I enter the orange blossom room

0:03:180:03:20

'just because I want to see how the dance is going. I want to see'

0:03:200:03:23

how they were handling the pressure.

0:03:230:03:25

Wow. Yes. That was terrible.

0:03:250:03:28

What? Who is that? Wait...

0:03:280:03:30

'This is a complete disaster. I have to think of something quick.'

0:03:300:03:35

When did you get here? Well, I just walked in.

0:03:350:03:37

I just wanted to see how the dance was going.

0:03:370:03:39

And clearly it's a mess, but don't worry.

0:03:390:03:42

I have a genius idea.

0:03:420:03:43

If you guys are willing to add one person, I think you guys...

0:03:430:03:46

Are you crazy? How can we add another person?

0:03:460:03:48

Forfeit or add another person? I'm going with forfeit.

0:03:480:03:51

No. No. No. I'm telling you guys, trust me.

0:03:510:03:53

You guys need Noah.

0:03:530:03:54

He's like Marco Polo on a ship without a compass - blindfolded.

0:03:540:03:59

'Noah?'

0:03:590:04:00

Why didn't I think of that?

0:04:000:04:01

Guys, he's right. I've seen it. He's got this gift.

0:04:010:04:04

'We're having trouble with five people.'

0:04:040:04:06

Imagine six. It's not going to work.

0:04:060:04:09

There's no way. You know what? Don't even worry about it, guys.

0:04:090:04:12

I'm going to prove it. I'll be back.

0:04:120:04:15

'Yeah, West. I would love to see'

0:04:150:04:17

how adding Noah is going to help this routine.

0:04:170:04:20

It is Round Two of the competition.

0:04:300:04:32

This round is two teams going up against each other.

0:04:320:04:36

Now, of course, with athletes being blindfolded,

0:04:360:04:40

you run the risk of some injury but we've got that covered off.

0:04:400:04:42

We're going to have spotters at the front of the stage.

0:04:420:04:45

But remember, if a spotter has to stop a dancer from falling off

0:04:450:04:48

the stage, they will be disqualified.

0:04:480:04:50

First off, it's England versus the Philippines

0:04:500:04:52

with England's Summerford School of Dance getting set to

0:04:520:04:56

take to the stage.

0:04:560:04:57

APPLAUSE

0:04:570:04:59

And here they come, having already put on their blindfolds.

0:04:590:05:02

I can't wait to see how this goes.

0:05:020:05:04

GENTLE MUSIC PLAYS

0:05:070:05:10

Six pirouettes blindfolded! Wow.

0:05:170:05:19

That is so difficult. You have no idea where the front is.

0:05:190:05:22

But how did he find his partner there? That's really incredible.

0:05:220:05:26

'Right now we're watching England perform.

0:05:300:05:33

'Unfortunately, they're doing a pretty good job.'

0:05:330:05:36

'Our strategy in winning the blindfold dance

0:05:370:05:40

'is to use as few people as possible in hopes that our dance'

0:05:400:05:43

'will be absolutely perfect.

0:05:430:05:46

Does the fact that you have no vision heighten the other senses?

0:05:460:05:51

Absolutely. Absolutely. Listening to the music.

0:05:510:05:53

Hearing where their feet step.

0:05:530:05:55

These are so important to listen to.

0:05:550:05:57

Hearing the audience clap.

0:05:570:05:58

You know where the front is.

0:05:580:06:00

And they are doing a remarkable job on the stage.

0:06:030:06:05

'The strongest part of their dance is the way they use touch

0:06:090:06:11

'to find each other so that they don't lose their spacing.'

0:06:110:06:14

It's actually pretty smart and they're pulling it off.

0:06:140:06:17

Back handspring blindfolded. Wow! Turning leap. Wow!

0:06:190:06:24

And will they find each other?

0:06:240:06:26

That's the question I keep asking.

0:06:260:06:28

And they do. Oh, my goodness.

0:06:280:06:30

Wow. Summerford just brought it.

0:06:430:06:45

That was spectacular.

0:06:470:06:49

'The dance was really beautiful.'

0:06:490:06:51

I think we have a good chance of winning.

0:06:510:06:53

I will now prove my theory.

0:06:570:06:59

'I return with Noah because I really'

0:06:590:07:01

want to prove to the girls why Noah is perfect for this dance.

0:07:010:07:05

West is just wasting our time right now.

0:07:050:07:07

We need to be rehearsing cos we go on stage soon.

0:07:070:07:10

He's blindfolded and he's catching everything

0:07:140:07:18

that's being thrown at him.

0:07:180:07:19

(I told you.) Are you kidding?

0:07:190:07:22

STEPHANIE: How is he juggling blindfolded?

0:07:220:07:25

It's so weird.

0:07:250:07:26

We need him in our routine.

0:07:260:07:28

All in favour for in?

0:07:280:07:29

And there it is.

0:07:310:07:33

OK, but we only have a dance for five, not for six.

0:07:330:07:36

'If Noah comes in,'

0:07:360:07:38

then we need to lose somebody else.

0:07:380:07:40

I'll back up. What?

0:07:410:07:43

'I volunteer to drop out because'

0:07:430:07:45

I'm the newest to A-Troupe

0:07:450:07:47

'and it just feels like the right thing to do.'

0:07:470:07:49

Listen, you're not going to do this.

0:07:490:07:51

Why not?

0:07:510:07:52

'I can't let someone who's on the actual team not dance.'

0:07:520:07:56

Listen, guys. I'm the alternate for the team.

0:07:560:07:59

I'll back out.

0:08:010:08:02

Manila Paardan Ng Sayaw is up next.

0:08:050:08:09

Yes, and as we can see, they have twice as many dancers

0:08:090:08:12

which means the difficulty will be much higher.

0:08:120:08:14

If they can perform a clean routine

0:08:140:08:16

then Summerford will be packing their bags.

0:08:160:08:18

I cannot wait to see what happens.

0:08:180:08:20

Let's go to the stage.

0:08:200:08:22

TECHNO MUSIC PLAYS

0:08:220:08:26

Oh, wow.

0:08:360:08:37

'England has a five-point advantage from Ella's solo but...'

0:08:370:08:42

I'm not too sure it's enough to beat the Filipino team.

0:08:420:08:44

'They're unbelievable.'

0:08:440:08:46

They're pretty sick.

0:08:490:08:50

Luckily, that's bad news for England.

0:08:500:08:53

Now the judges want to reward difficulty level.

0:08:530:08:56

Playing it safe at Internationals may not always be the best option.

0:08:560:09:00

And I bet Summerford's having second thoughts

0:09:000:09:02

about only using two dancers right now.

0:09:020:09:04

'I'm in the wings watching the Philippines dance'

0:09:040:09:06

and it's going really well. I'm really nervous.

0:09:060:09:09

And they are... Oh, my goodness. Wow.

0:09:090:09:12

Three aerials... Three aerials blindfolded.

0:09:120:09:14

..towards the stage, blindfolded, beside each other.

0:09:140:09:17

Wow! Whoa, whoa, whoa!

0:09:180:09:20

Oh...

0:09:200:09:22

MUSIC STOPS WHISTLE BLOWS

0:09:220:09:24

ANNOUNCER: 'Please take your blindfolds off.

0:09:240:09:26

'You've been disqualified.'

0:09:260:09:28

That means disqualification.

0:09:280:09:30

That is heartbreaking.

0:09:300:09:32

APPLAUSE

0:09:320:09:34

They look so defeated. They don't know what happened.

0:09:340:09:37

We're in the next round!

0:09:370:09:39

Welcome back to SNR's ongoing coverage

0:09:490:09:52

of the Absolute Dance International Championship here in Miami.

0:09:520:09:55

Up next is Sweden challenging Switzerland,

0:09:550:09:57

who just performed with four dancers.

0:09:570:10:00

And Sweden is certainly pushing the envelope.

0:10:000:10:02

Get this, folks, for the first time, a team during the blindfold round

0:10:020:10:07

is going to go with the maximum - seven participants.

0:10:070:10:10

I have never seen this happen before.

0:10:100:10:13

This is going to be amazing and, of course, Sweden is the team to do it.

0:10:130:10:16

They're known for working seamlessly together.

0:10:160:10:18

And they really move as one.

0:10:180:10:20

So I can't wait to see this routine.

0:10:200:10:22

GENTLE MUSIC PLAYS

0:10:220:10:27

'Our matchup against France is really soon,

0:10:320:10:34

'but we came a little early'

0:10:340:10:36

because we want to see Sweden perform.

0:10:360:10:38

ELDON: 'The Swedish team is really smart because

0:10:460:10:48

'they used a long piece of fabric to connect all the dancers

0:10:480:10:52

'so they know exactly where they're supposed to be.'

0:10:520:10:55

Wow. They're amazing.

0:10:560:11:00

It's like they're not even blindfolded. Makes no sense.

0:11:020:11:05

'Even with blindfolds on, they seem to have perfect spacing,

0:11:110:11:14

'and their technique is on and...'

0:11:140:11:18

I can't find anything wrong with their dance.

0:11:180:11:21

Wow.

0:11:270:11:28

And they are standing.

0:11:310:11:33

And justifiably so.

0:11:330:11:35

And here comes Switzerland back to the stage.

0:11:370:11:39

That's right. The judges are tabulating their votes.

0:11:390:11:41

I have a feeling this is going to be a no-brainer.

0:11:410:11:44

I think it's going to be a literal walk in the park.

0:11:440:11:46

Blindfolded.

0:11:460:11:48

ANNOUNCER: 'And the winner moving on to the next round

0:11:490:11:52

'of the Absolute Dance Internationals is...

0:11:520:11:55

'Sweden.'

0:11:550:11:56

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:11:560:11:59

The Swedish team knew exactly what they were doing

0:11:590:12:01

when they made the decision to go with seven participants

0:12:010:12:04

in this blindfold portion of the competition.

0:12:040:12:07

NOAH: 'I'm in the deep wings now,

0:12:070:12:08

'practising because everyone's depending on me.

0:12:080:12:10

'Basically, the strategy is for me

0:12:100:12:12

'to guide the girls through the dance.

0:12:120:12:14

'I'm going to be partnering with each of them to ensure

0:12:140:12:16

'that they don't get too close to a spotter.'

0:12:160:12:18

This is a big opportunity and I don't want to mess it up.

0:12:180:12:22

ANNOUNCER: 'Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands together

0:12:220:12:25

'for the French representative, Locronan Ecole Royal de Danse.'

0:12:250:12:29

'All right, the next two teams going head-to-head...'

0:12:290:12:32

Hey, Ella.

0:12:320:12:34

I just wanted to wish you good luck.

0:12:360:12:37

What's the catch? No catch.

0:12:380:12:41

I kind of have mixed feelings right now because she really helped me

0:12:410:12:44

to gain confidence and just helped me to be an A-Trouper.

0:12:440:12:48

But she also kind of turned on the team and that's not cool.

0:12:480:12:53

Look, I'm not competing with you in this round,

0:12:530:12:56

so what happens to you doesn't affect me.

0:12:560:12:57

Anyway, I know you're going to do well

0:12:570:12:59

cos you're freakishly good at spatial awareness.

0:12:590:13:02

Thanks, Ella.

GENTLE MUSIC PLAYS

0:13:120:13:15

Gorgeous extension. Incredible. They're all connected. Oh, I know.

0:13:150:13:19

What's up? Why you stressing?

0:13:220:13:24

Um, because I think I'm going to fall off the stage.

0:13:240:13:26

Oh, so you're doing well, then?

0:13:260:13:28

I'd be doing a lot better if France wasn't doing so good.

0:13:280:13:30

'France always does really well in Internationals.

0:13:380:13:41

'Having to compete against them blindfolded'

0:13:410:13:44

is very intimidating.

0:13:440:13:46

Riley, tell you what.

0:13:460:13:48

If you DON'T fall into a spotter, I'll take you on a date.

0:13:480:13:51

HE LAUGHS OK.

0:13:510:13:53

'I've been wanting to take Riley on a big date

0:13:530:13:56

'ever since we got to Miami'

0:13:560:13:57

and I have something pretty big in mind.

0:13:570:14:00

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:14:020:14:04

Wow. What an incredible performance from France.

0:14:060:14:09

Let me tell you, Ashley,

0:14:090:14:11

the competition is going to have a hard time beating that.

0:14:110:14:15

Up next is The Next Step.

0:14:150:14:17

Now keep in mind mathematics does play a bit of a role.

0:14:170:14:20

Next Step will be featuring five dancers.

0:14:200:14:22

That's right. And this could either pay off huge for them

0:14:220:14:25

or be a total disaster.

0:14:250:14:27

'Everything depends on Noah right now.'

0:14:270:14:30

We changed all of our choreo so he could help guide us on stage

0:14:300:14:34

and we really haven't had a lot of time to rehearse the new routine.

0:14:340:14:38

All right, here goes nothing.

0:14:380:14:40

It ain't nothing

0:14:400:14:41

'I'm really nervous. But I know this group is relying on me'

0:14:410:14:45

and I'm not going to let them down.

0:14:450:14:47

ANNOUNCER: 'Ladies and gentlemen,

0:14:480:14:50

'please put your hands together for The Next Step.'

0:14:500:14:52

'Walking on stage builds up all this pressure

0:14:540:14:58

'and I'm ready to perform but at the same time,'

0:14:580:15:02

I'm not so sure if this is going to go well.

MUSIC: Hotel

APPLAUSE

0:15:150:15:19

'The concept for this dance is I'm a prince,

And I have to choose one.

0:15:280:15:30

'He's kind of partnering each and every one of us

0:15:320:15:34

'and in doing that, he's also placing us in the right spots

0:15:340:15:38

'and making sure that we know where we are'

0:15:380:15:41

and making sure that we don't bump into anyone on stage.

0:15:410:15:45

How they doing?

0:15:520:15:54

They're pretty good.

0:15:540:15:55

'Noah is blowing my mind right now.

0:16:000:16:02

'How can he flip with a blindfold on? Who would have thought'

0:16:020:16:05

that Noah would have killed something like that?

0:16:050:16:08

Noah's doing a great job.

0:16:120:16:13

'Without him, it would look like four separate performances

0:16:130:16:16

'with nothing really binding us together.

0:16:160:16:18

'He's the glue that's holding us together.'

0:16:180:16:21

'Noah seems to be doing a great job in directing us because

0:16:250:16:28

'I feel super safe and in control

0:16:280:16:30

'and I can tell that the crowd is loving it.'

0:16:300:16:32

'I started in J-Troupe.

0:16:360:16:38

'Everyone was overlooking me and I was never getting in any dances.

0:16:380:16:41

'But now people are relying on me and they believe in me.'

0:16:410:16:45

This is a personal win for me no matter what.

0:16:450:16:49

APPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:16:490:16:53

This Internationals competition just hit another level.

0:16:530:16:56

It certainly did.

0:16:560:16:58

And tell me, where did that guy come from?

0:16:580:17:00

Where he came from matters not.

0:17:000:17:02

It's what he did when he was here.

0:17:020:17:04

ANNOUNCER: 'Welcoming back to the stage

0:17:070:17:09

'Locronan Ecole Royal de Danse.'

0:17:090:17:12

This is unbelievable.

0:17:120:17:13

Two truly incredible performances.

0:17:130:17:16

I do not envy the judges right now.

0:17:160:17:19

Being on stage waiting for them to announce the winner of this round'

0:17:210:17:24

is so nerve-racking.

0:17:240:17:26

'And the winner...'

0:17:260:17:28

'I'm really happy that we did as good as we did but'

0:17:280:17:32

France was also incredible.

0:17:320:17:34

'..moving on to round four of seven is...'

0:17:340:17:37

'France has only four dancers but their routine was flawless.'

0:17:370:17:42

I have no idea what's going to happen.

0:17:420:17:44

'..The Next Step!'

0:17:460:17:47

APPLAUSE

0:17:470:17:49

What do you think of that?

0:17:550:17:57

Good on them.

0:17:570:17:58

Noah is making me look good. He's proven my point perfectly.

0:18:030:18:07

I can't believe it. We actually did it.

0:18:110:18:15

MUSIC: Miami

0:18:150:18:20

LATIN MUSIC PLAYS

0:18:220:18:27

Thank you. Thank you.

0:18:330:18:35

You're very welcome. Enjoy. Thank you very much.

0:18:350:18:39

How crazy is this? It's great. Oh, I love Latin music. I love this.

0:18:390:18:43

THEY SING IN SPANISH

0:18:430:18:47

'I promised Riley that if she didn't fall off the stage

0:18:490:18:52

'in the blindfold dance that I would take her on a date'

0:18:520:18:54

so I chose a salsa club in Miami.

0:18:540:18:56

'James and I are on a date right now but...'

0:18:580:19:02

he keeps drumming on the table

0:19:020:19:04

'and it just kind of makes me think he'd rather be with his band

0:19:040:19:07

'than be here at Internationals.'

0:19:070:19:09

JAMES DRUMS ON TABLE

0:19:090:19:11

Are you sure you wouldn't rather be with your band right now?

0:19:110:19:14

No, Riley. Of course. This is Internationals.

0:19:140:19:17

This is where I want to be.

0:19:170:19:19

OK.

0:19:190:19:20

'You know what? I am done talking about the band.'

0:19:200:19:22

I asked Riley on this date so that we could have some fun.

0:19:220:19:25

Do you want to go dance?

0:19:280:19:29

Yeah. Let's do it.

0:19:300:19:33

'I was a little worried that James wanted to be with his band

0:19:470:19:50

'more than competing at Internationals but...'

0:19:500:19:53

as we're dancing, I know that he wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

0:19:530:19:58

'I guess the truth is I do want to be here.'

0:20:050:20:08

But I also really want to be with the band.

0:20:080:20:11

But I'm just not ready to tell anyone that yet.

0:20:110:20:14

'Right now, Giselle's in a dance captain meeting'

0:20:280:20:31

and we're waiting for her to return and tell us what the next round is.

0:20:310:20:34

Guys. Guys, come in.

0:20:360:20:39

'I'm calling the team together because I've learned what

0:20:390:20:41

'the next round is going to be and I hope Eldon's ready.'

0:20:410:20:44

How many pirouettes are you at now?

0:20:440:20:47

Uh... 27?

0:20:470:20:49

Well, if we want to make it to the next round,

0:20:490:20:51

we need as many as you can muster.

0:20:510:20:54

'I just hope Eldon can do it'

0:20:550:20:57

because the whole team is going to be riding on it.

0:20:570:20:59

I don't know if I'm ready for this.

0:20:590:21:01

# We

0:21:060:21:08

# We're gonna show the world

0:21:080:21:12

# Everything we're made of

0:21:120:21:15

# We're gonna tear the roof off this place

0:21:150:21:20

# You

0:21:200:21:22

# You can never fade us out

0:21:220:21:26

# Don't even ask the DJ

0:21:260:21:29

# Everybody knows we own this land... #

0:21:300:21:34
