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

0:00:040:00:07

No, Riley. Of course. This is Internationals.

0:00:070:00:10

'I do want to be here.

0:00:100:00:11

'But I also really want to be with the band.

0:00:110:00:14

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

0:00:140:00:17

If Noah comes in...

0:00:170:00:19

then we need to lose somebody else.

0:00:190:00:21

I'm the alternate for the team.

0:00:210:00:23

I'll back out.

0:00:250:00:26

She cheated and she still won.

0:00:270:00:30

This isn't about Internationals any more.

0:00:300:00:33

Ella betrayed me. But worse, she betrayed my team.

0:00:330:00:36

And we're going to make her regret it.

0:00:370:00:39

Ready? A five, six, seven, eight. Go one, a two, a three, a four...

0:00:490:00:53

We still can't believe that we made it all the way to semifinals.

0:00:530:00:56

We started with 160 teams at Internationals. 160.

0:00:560:01:01

Now we're down to four.

0:01:010:01:02

England, Sweden, Italy and us.

0:01:020:01:05

Today, each team gets only one hour to rehearse their group number.

0:01:050:01:07

One, a two, a three, a four...

0:01:070:01:09

'And it's really the only time we get to practise on stage so...'

0:01:090:01:12

we really, really need this rehearsal.

0:01:120:01:14

And one, a two. Hold on. Stop one sec.

0:01:140:01:16

Cierra, just push out a little. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:01:160:01:19

That's a little bit better. OK. Your time is up.

0:01:190:01:21

What?

0:01:210:01:22

No. She's just messing with us. No, no, no. Your time is up.

0:01:220:01:25

Please get off the stage.

0:01:250:01:26

Having to leave for Ella's team...

0:01:280:01:30

just makes me really angry.

0:01:300:01:33

You just don't look ready and you know why?

0:01:330:01:36

Why? Because you're not.

0:01:360:01:38

'She's wrong. We are ready. We're going to win'

0:01:380:01:40

and we're going to find a way to beat her.

0:01:400:01:43

We have to.

0:01:430:01:44

# We, we are gonna show the world

0:01:460:01:52

# Everything we're made of

0:01:520:01:55

# We're gonna tear the roof off this place

0:01:550:02:01

# Stand up. #

0:02:080:02:09

Whoa. This is huge.

0:02:290:02:32

I feel like Amanda and I just need a moment on stage to ourselves

0:02:320:02:36

'because we aren't in any of the routines

0:02:360:02:38

'and we won't get to dance here.'

0:02:380:02:41

Wow.

0:02:410:02:42

This is amazing.

0:02:440:02:45

Look at this stage.

0:02:470:02:48

Look at the audience.

0:02:490:02:51

'So I feel like we just need this moment to take in all the lights'

0:02:510:02:54

and just imagine what it would be like to compete at Internationals.

0:02:540:02:59

It would be amazing to dance on it though.

0:02:590:03:01

Why can't we?

0:03:010:03:03

Shall we dance?

0:03:030:03:04

'The spotlight is shining on us.

0:03:140:03:16

'And it's almost like we're having our own Internationals moment.'

0:03:160:03:20

It's pretty magical.

0:03:200:03:21

APPLAUSE

0:03:210:03:25

'I know we're only alternates, but...'

0:03:250:03:28

this moment is pretty great.

0:03:280:03:30

Welcome back to our ongoing coverage

0:03:400:03:42

of the Absolute Dance International Championship.

0:03:420:03:45

I'm your host, Chuck Anderson

0:03:450:03:47

alongside dancer and performer, Ashley Leggat.

0:03:470:03:52

And then there were four.

0:03:520:03:53

On one side of the ledger we have Academia Toscana di Danza

0:03:530:03:57

out of Italy...

0:03:570:03:59

and Stockholm Dance Theatre. Now Stockholm Dance Theatre,

0:03:590:04:02

they've been through this battle too many times.

0:04:020:04:04

They are ready to go.

0:04:040:04:05

On the other side of the ledger,

0:04:050:04:07

we have Summerford School of Dance and, well,

0:04:070:04:10

the antithesis of Stockholm Dance Theatre - The Next Step

0:04:100:04:14

are getting their first kick at the can here at Internationals.

0:04:140:04:17

The cold hard truth is that at the end of today...

0:04:170:04:19

only two teams will remain.

0:04:190:04:22

HE GROANS IN PAIN

0:04:220:04:25

This isn't good.

0:04:270:04:29

West looks really sick.

0:04:290:04:31

'As I was in Miami, I found the best kebab spot

0:04:310:04:33

'that you can possibly ever go to.'

0:04:330:04:35

And I think it gave me food poisoning.

0:04:350:04:37

All right. How many times have you thrown up?

0:04:370:04:39

Three times. You know what? Actually four

0:04:390:04:41

because I just threw up in my mouth. Ew. And I swallowed it back in.

0:04:410:04:46

What are we going to do? You know what? This is food poisoning.

0:04:460:04:48

I know it. I eat shawarmas a lot.

0:04:480:04:50

It happens to me like once or twice a month.

0:04:500:04:52

It takes 24 hours to get out of your system.

0:04:520:04:54

I think it's just from the meats.

0:04:540:04:56

We do not have 24 hours.

0:04:560:04:57

It was... Someone help me up. Come here. Come here.

0:04:570:05:00

HIS STOMACH RUMBLES

0:05:020:05:03

You know, I think I got to go... Where?

0:05:030:05:07

You know where! Oh!

0:05:070:05:09

That makes five times. Five. Five times.

0:05:090:05:12

West is definitely not going to be ready in time

0:05:120:05:15

for the semifinals routine.

0:05:150:05:16

We can't afford to wait for him to get better so we're going to

0:05:160:05:19

have to replace him. Well, it's either Michelle or Amanda.

0:05:190:05:22

Michelle's better for this one. When Michelle and I became alternates,

0:05:220:05:25

we decided that we would each be responsible for five dancers.

0:05:250:05:28

And West was one of hers.

0:05:280:05:30

Michelle? Do you feel ready?

0:05:300:05:32

'I've been dreaming about dancing with the team.

0:05:320:05:36

'But now that I have the chance,'

0:05:360:05:38

I'm so nervous and I don't want to let the team down.

0:05:380:05:41

Do you think you can handle it?

0:05:410:05:43

Yeah. I'll do it.

0:05:430:05:45

We need to get you your costume. We need to rework the routine.

0:05:450:05:48

We have lifts so we need to change that, obviously.

0:05:480:05:50

'I feel really bad for West, but I just can't wait to perform'

0:05:500:05:53

on the International stage.

0:05:530:05:55

CHEERING

0:06:050:06:07

The first semifinal is getting set to go.

0:06:070:06:09

It's going to be Stockholm Dance Theatre

0:06:090:06:11

against Academia Toscana di Danza.

0:06:110:06:14

That Italian troupe is set to go.

0:06:170:06:21

CHEERING

0:06:250:06:29

We can use the word strong to describe these four teams

0:06:430:06:47

that are left standing here at Internationals here in Miami.

0:06:470:06:50

But that really wouldn't do it justice.

0:06:500:06:53

They're so much more than just strong.

0:06:530:06:54

They have just exemplified everything that you want to see

0:06:540:06:57

in a competition of this nature. They absolutely have.

0:06:570:07:00

They have taken every curveball thrown at them

0:07:000:07:02

and thrived and this is why they are the final four.

0:07:020:07:06

There is no room for mistakes.

0:07:060:07:07

And Italy's drawn the short straw here today having to go head-to-head

0:07:070:07:11

against defending champions Team Sweden.

0:07:110:07:13

'Six, seven, eight.'

0:07:150:07:17

One and two and three and four and five.

0:07:170:07:20

'I know Michelle is a fantastic dancer,

0:07:200:07:22

'but to learn our semifinals routine'

0:07:220:07:24

right before we go on, that would be hard for any of us.

0:07:240:07:28

One, two, three and four.

0:07:280:07:30

'I feel like I'm picking up the choreography just fine,'

0:07:300:07:33

but I'm super nervous. It's just a lot to handle.

0:07:330:07:36

CHEERING

0:07:360:07:38

And up next, those wily veterans out of Sweden - Stockholm Dance Theatre.

0:07:380:07:43

# Wake up in a new skin # Oh, babe

0:07:510:07:55

# Life is how it's always been # Oh, babe

0:07:550:07:58

# I can open up my eyes # Oh, babe

0:07:580:08:01

# And see it in a brand-new light # Oh, babe

0:08:010:08:05

# Shivers running down my spine # Oh, babe

0:08:050:08:09

# Music in the bright light # Oh, babe

0:08:090:08:12

# Suddenly covers me # Oh, babe

0:08:120:08:16

# Pouring rain apparently # Oh, babe. #

0:08:160:08:19

Sweden is already looking very impressive out there.

0:08:190:08:23

It's no wonder they're the defending champions.

0:08:230:08:26

Five, six, seven, eight. One, two, three and four, five

0:08:280:08:31

and six seven, eight. One, two, three, four, five,

0:08:310:08:33

six, seven, eight. Pose.

0:08:330:08:35

So right now we're re-choreographing the routine to fit Michelle

0:08:350:08:38

and it's actually going really well.

0:08:380:08:40

I'm ready as I'll ever be.

0:08:400:08:42

Got it? Um, yeah. I'm ready to go.

0:08:420:08:44

Good because we need to get in costumes and go.

0:08:440:08:46

So, let's do this, guys.

0:08:460:08:47

West, you coming, bro? Just give me like... Just give me like two min...

0:08:490:08:52

HIS STOMACH RUMBLES Oh I'm out. I'm out.

0:08:520:08:55

That kebab was kabad. And it kablooied me.

0:08:560:09:01

CHEERING

0:09:020:09:06

Wow. Ashley, Stockholm Dance Theatre has been a model of consistency

0:09:140:09:19

throughout this week. And it continues.

0:09:190:09:21

That dance was incredible. They were moving as one. It was fantastic.

0:09:210:09:25

And I don't know how they will ever be beat.

0:09:250:09:27

All right. So now it's all left up to the judges.

0:09:270:09:30

The judges have tabulated their scores.

0:09:310:09:34

And the team moving on to the final round is...

0:09:340:09:38

Stockholm Dance Theatre.

0:09:380:09:39

CHEERING

0:09:390:09:41

Sweden is moving on and, Ashley, what have they not used up yet?

0:09:410:09:46

They have not used their five-point advantage. Wow.

0:09:460:09:49

Really, at this point, they are practically invincible.

0:09:490:09:52

# So give it up, up

0:09:560:09:58

# All of your love, love

0:09:580:09:59

# And don't run, run away. #

0:09:590:10:01

Five, six, seven, eight.

0:10:050:10:06

One and two and three and four and five.

0:10:060:10:10

'Right now, Giselle and I are just backstage and we're just kind of

0:10:100:10:13

'going over the dance just to really make sure it's in my brain.

0:10:130:10:15

'I can't believe I got this opportunity.'

0:10:150:10:17

I feel like this is my time to shine.

0:10:170:10:19

The stage looks huge.

0:10:190:10:21

Is it any different than Regionals or Nationals?

0:10:210:10:24

I mean, I've never been to Nationals.

0:10:240:10:27

Mind you, I've never even been to Regionals either.

0:10:270:10:30

That's right. You weren't at either.

0:10:300:10:32

It's going to be weird starting over at Regionals next year.

0:10:320:10:36

Yeah. I never really thought of that.

0:10:360:10:38

Me either.

0:10:380:10:39

For Noah to go back to Regionals, it makes sense.

0:10:390:10:42

Me on the other hand? I've been to Regionals.

0:10:420:10:44

I've been to Nationals and now I'm at Internationals.

0:10:440:10:46

Regionals?

0:10:460:10:47

That's just a big step back.

0:10:480:10:50

CHEERING

0:10:550:10:58

'It's weird competing against The Next Step

0:11:010:11:03

'because they're nice people.

0:11:030:11:06

'But when it comes to competition,'

0:11:060:11:08

no-one is going to hold me or my team back.

0:11:080:11:10

SLOW DRAMATIC MUSIC PLAYS

0:11:100:11:15

Our semifinal dance? There's a little girl wandering in the woods

0:11:170:11:20

and we're all like enchanted trees all trying to scare her.

0:11:200:11:23

And it's all about how you could control what you are afraid of.

0:11:230:11:26

CHEERING

0:11:320:11:34

'They're all so technically beautiful and very fluid.'

0:11:390:11:44

And it's actually kind of brilliant.

SHE EXHALES

0:11:470:11:49

CHEERING

0:11:500:11:52

'Ours is a lot more fun and upbeat and it kind of worries me

0:11:540:11:57

'just because their routine is beautiful.'

0:11:570:12:00

And I'm worried that that is going to beat us out.

0:12:000:12:04

Guys, come in. Huddle around.

0:12:080:12:10

Listen, I know that England is fantastic.

0:12:120:12:15

They are a very, very strong team.

0:12:150:12:16

And that's fine because we're here at the semifinals

0:12:160:12:20

and I want you guys to focus on yourselves.

0:12:200:12:22

Don't even think about them for one second.

0:12:220:12:24

Yes. I totally agree. If we dance for us, we'll win.

0:12:240:12:28

Yup. Honestly, this could be our last time dancing together, guys.

0:12:280:12:32

We have to go all in.

0:12:320:12:33

Yeah? You guys down? Yeah? You guys ready to go in?

0:12:350:12:38

ALL: Yeah!

0:12:380:12:40

This could be the last time that I step on the stage.

0:12:400:12:43

I have to dance for myself.

0:12:430:12:45

And I have to go all out.

0:12:450:12:46

CHEERING

0:12:460:12:49

The drama continues to heighten.

0:12:490:12:51

That was a solid performance put forth by Summerford School of Dance.

0:12:510:12:55

It sure was and our newbies are up next - The Next Step.

0:12:550:12:58

They've got their work cut out for them.

0:12:580:13:00

Beat that. Planning on it.

0:13:030:13:05

I want to beat Ella more than anything.

0:13:060:13:09

Well, Ashley, up next is The Next Step.

0:13:100:13:13

And once again they are mired in drama.

0:13:130:13:16

The scuttlebutt backstage is that they have to go to an

0:13:160:13:20

alternate dancer here in the semifinals.

0:13:200:13:22

Chuck, this is an absolute nightmare. We are at the semifinals.

0:13:220:13:25

There's no room for drama or anything to be happening so

0:13:250:13:28

I really hope they can figure it out and give it a fair shot on stage.

0:13:280:13:32

All right. You guys got this? Will The Next Step... Here we go.

0:13:320:13:35

..please enter the stage? CHEERING

0:13:350:13:37

All right, all right. I'm here.

0:13:370:13:40

West, what are you doing?

0:13:410:13:43

What?

0:13:430:13:45

Look, West, I got this. I can perform. No, no. It doesn't matter.

0:13:450:13:48

I haven't... HIS STOMACH RUMBLES

0:13:480:13:50

..thrown up in three minutes. It's fine. I'm good.

0:13:500:13:52

Michelle, it's up to you.

0:13:550:13:56

Listen, you could probably do a better job than I could, so...

0:13:580:14:01

light up the stage guys.

0:14:010:14:03

Good luck, guys. Good luck. Kill it.

0:14:030:14:05

Will The Next Step please enter the stage?

0:14:050:14:08

CHEERING Good luck!

0:14:080:14:10

'I thought I was going to have this moment with the team, but...'

0:14:130:14:16

I guess not.

0:14:160:14:17

Sometimes you just have to step back.

OK, now we have been told that they are not going with their alternate

0:14:400:14:44

and they're ready to perform.

0:14:440:14:45

Let's see what they got.

'Our semifinals routine is called Let's Dance Tonight

'and it's kind of about James having this dream.

0:14:510:14:54

'He kind of gets pulled into this old-fashioned style of dancing.'

0:14:560:15:00

He's very hip-hop and completely different from how we're dancing

0:15:040:15:07

which is very swing.

0:15:070:15:08

Then I realise that they have never seen hip-hop.

0:15:110:15:13

'So I show them some hip-hop and then by the end of it

I wouldn't have missed this for the world.

0:15:370:15:39

'As I'm dancing I feel happy. Super happy.'

0:15:400:15:43

Because even though this may be my last time dancing, I still love it.

0:15:450:15:48

Woo!

0:15:570:15:58

'They're doing so amazing, but...'

0:15:580:16:00

you know, I just wish that I was up there with them and

0:16:000:16:03

being a part of their performance.

0:16:030:16:05

# You and me baby gonna dance tonight

0:16:170:16:18

# Come here, girls Help me do it right

0:16:180:16:21

# Shake your body from side to side. #

0:16:210:16:22

'I think The Next Step have a good routine.'

0:16:240:16:27

But we are going to win this.

0:16:270:16:29

Woo!

0:16:320:16:34

CHEERING

0:16:360:16:39

Ashley, is it safe to say that The Next Step

0:16:420:16:45

just delivered their best performance?

0:16:450:16:47

It sure is. I'm blown away. I did not expect to see that

0:16:470:16:52

after everything that's been going on backstage.

0:16:520:16:54

But was it enough to beat England?

0:16:540:16:56

Let's see how this thing pans out.

0:16:560:16:58

The judges... We're waiting on them.

0:16:580:17:00

'Waiting to hear who the winner is is always the most stressful part.'

0:17:040:17:07

There's not much else you can do.

0:17:070:17:08

You just have to stand and wait for the results.

0:17:080:17:11

'This is very tense.' I am so nervous right now.

0:17:130:17:16

And it's even worse because

0:17:160:17:17

we don't have the five-point advantage any more.

0:17:170:17:20

'The suspense is killing me.'

0:17:200:17:22

If we don't beat Ella's team, I don't know what I'll do.

0:17:220:17:25

Talk about the heightened drama throughout the course of this week.

0:17:250:17:29

Absolutely. I feel so bad for the dancers standing up there waiting.

0:17:290:17:32

There is no worse moment than waiting to hear

0:17:320:17:34

if you've won or lost.

0:17:340:17:36

And it looks like we might have a decision. Yeah, they're ready.

0:17:360:17:39

Yeah, here it comes.

0:17:390:17:40

The judges have tabulated their scores

0:17:400:17:42

and the team moving on to the final round is...

0:17:420:17:45

The Next Step! CHEERING

0:17:460:17:49

We're going to the finals at Internationals.

0:17:550:17:57

OK, this is huge. I don't even know how to feel I'm so excited.

0:17:570:18:01

In your face, Ella.

0:18:010:18:03

'I finally beat Ella.'

0:18:030:18:04

She deserves it.

0:18:050:18:06

It kind of reassures me that

0:18:100:18:12

cheating does not get you ahead.

0:18:120:18:14

Ella cheated and she lost.

0:18:140:18:15

SNR has been following The Next Step through Regionals, Nationals

0:18:170:18:20

and now here at the International Championship.

0:18:200:18:24

It's The Next Step's first appearance here

0:18:240:18:26

at the Internationals and they are in the title bout.

0:18:260:18:29

THEY CHEER

0:18:290:18:31

What are you doing?

0:18:330:18:34

It's over, you beat us. We can be friends now.

0:18:340:18:37

Don't you get it? Oh, no. I get it. I just don't play that way.

0:18:370:18:40

Oh, Ri.

0:18:400:18:42

Scowling doesn't suit you.

0:18:420:18:44

That's right. Scowling doesn't suit me.

0:18:440:18:47

'Celebrating with my real friends does.'

0:18:470:18:50

Woo! THEY CHEER

0:18:500:18:53

'We're just warming up for our finals routine.'

0:19:070:19:09

This day is the most important day of the entire competition.

0:19:090:19:12

Riley, come here for a second.

0:19:150:19:17

Listen. I've been having a great time at Internationals.

0:19:180:19:21

Don't get me wrong.

0:19:210:19:23

But I've been thinking a lot lately.

0:19:230:19:25

And...

0:19:250:19:26

I just want to be with the band.

0:19:280:19:30

I know. But once Internationals is done

0:19:300:19:32

you'll have plenty of time to do both.

0:19:320:19:34

No. No, no, no. You're not understanding what I'm saying.

0:19:340:19:37

When Internationals is over...

0:19:370:19:39

I just want to be with the band.

0:19:410:19:43

I don't know what to say.

0:19:450:19:46

You could say you're cool with that?

0:19:470:19:49

I don't think I can.

0:19:520:19:53

I can't give James my blessing for this...

0:19:540:19:57

because it terrifies me.

0:19:580:20:00

Dance has always been the one thing that we've had in common and

0:20:040:20:07

by him saying that he wants to leave dance...

0:20:070:20:09

it's kind of like him saying...

0:20:100:20:13

he wants to leave me.

0:20:130:20:14

All right. You guys warm? Yeah. Yeah? OK. Let's get up.

0:20:140:20:18

Let's start working on this. Today is the big day.

0:20:180:20:21

Come on, get in your spots. It sure is a big day.

0:20:220:20:25

Excuse me. What are you doing here? This is a closed rehearsal.

0:20:260:20:30

Yeah. Not for an Absolute Dance Internationals judge it isn't.

0:20:300:20:35

Lucien is back.

0:20:370:20:40

That's right. I'm a judge.

0:20:400:20:42

Lucien's a judge? Are you kidding me?

0:20:430:20:46

He has managed to sneak his way in again.

0:20:460:20:49

Of course, his one goal is to take down The Next Step.

0:20:490:20:53

And it looks like he might finally succeed.

0:20:530:20:56

'I know Lucien really well.'

0:20:560:20:59

And with him as a judge...

0:20:590:21:00

there's no way we're going to win.

0:21:010:21:03

# We, we are gonna show the world

0:21:070:21:12

# Everything we're made of

0:21:120:21:16

# We're gonna tear the roof off this place

0:21:160:21:21

# You, you can never fade us out

0:21:210:21:26

# Don't even ask the DJ

0:21:260:21:30

# Everybody knows we own this sound. #

0:21:300:21:35

The results are in! We are counting down to your favourite competition dance from The Next Step. Here is number four.
