'Previously on The Next Step...'
I'm being pulled from A-Troupe.
I'm not allowed to go back to the studio till I get my grades up.
I don't want to see so much as a flat ball change from you, James!
If he gets a 70% on his next math test, I will go on a date with him.
Giselle has earned her place in A-Troupe, not Michelle.
We're going to do more caveman-dancing, then.
I hate being in B-Troupe.
Daniel, do you know where James is?
Last year Beth dated James for like, five minutes
and she will not get over him.
-She's not my girlfriend.
-And does she KNOW that?
Putting you in the back row like that, it isn't fair.
I don't even know if I can be here any more since no-one respects me!
Emily and Stephanie
are leaving the studio.
I overheard my parents talking to Emily
and she was saying that they're planning on moving to Elite.
I don't know what we're going to do. This is really bad news.
'I mean, you might as well put a dagger in my heart and twist it.'
That's the worst thing they could do.
Out of all studios, Elite, our rival studio?
We might not win Regionals now.
They want to do stuff for the troupe but then they leave.
-I mean, come on!
-They're always about themselves. We know that.
But I think if we talk to them,
-or something, they'll want to come back.
-No. Bad idea.
If Emily sets her mind on something nothing is going to change that.
'They're both going to Elite.'
I know that we've worked really hard to go to Regionals
and I really want to go, but...
Are you suggesting that we not go to Regionals?
-I don't want to say that...
-It's out of the question.
-The amount of stuff we've sacrificed!
I don't care if I have to take my grandma, we are taking ten people.
'At the end of the day I want to win Regionals.'
And we can't win Regionals with eight people. We need ten.
-We need to find a solution, OK? We want to go to Regionals.
What we're going to do is we're going to audition
They still haven't been accepted to Elite.
'I do think the team is giving up on Emily'
and Stephanie way too quickly.
We still have hope. They haven't auditioned.
So we're just supposed to wait for them to get into Elite,
go to Regionals then beat us? Like, we have to do something now.
Regionals is so soon and we don't have any time to wait around.
We'll bring two people up from B-Troupe.
-There's Giselle, there's Beth.
There's Charlie, Zach! Exactly!
'B-Troupe is full of awesome dancers.'
Not only will we find good dancers, we'll find dancers
'better than Emily and Stephanie.'
-Are we going to do this?
-Yeah, we are!
-Let's do this!
The Next Step! ALL: Whoo!
All right. Welcome to A-Troupe auditions.
Michelle is running the auditions because she's dance captain.
Obviously it's not her decision. Chris and I make the final decision,
but it's really nice having her input as well.
So, as you know, there are two spots open in A-Troupe.
A-Troupe is a big jump from B-Troupe
and it's really important that you guys are serious.
'I am so excited to re-audition for A-Troupe.'
I just... Please. Let me make it.
'I'm the only one in B-Troupe that's ever been in A-Troupe before,'
so I think I have a pretty good chance.
So, just so you know, it'll be solos, like four counts of eight,
and then we'll go through choreography after.
So, we'll have you first.
So, why do you dance?
'I have Michelle ask why the dancers dance.
'Dance has to be a part of you.'
It has to be your every ounce of being.
I like entertaining people. I like being the centre of attention.
-Right after I'm on stage, it's always fun being up there.
We're doing freestyle auditions right now.
Freestyle is a big part of dance.
We just want to see what they can bring to the table.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
The auditions are going pretty smoothly.
The B-Troupe dancers are... We have better dancers in A-Troupe,
but we've gotta do what we've gotta do.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
So, why do you dance, Sarah?
I dance cos I just love to move.
Trying to jump higher and turn faster
and learn new tricks and try new things.
-It's what makes me really happy.
-Good for you.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
-Charlie, why do you dance?
-I like to dance cos I find
it kind of makes people smile and um...I feel as if smiling
kind of brightens the world a little bit.
The fact that Charlie says he dances
cos he wants to make people smile just... It makes ME smile!
I can't help it! It's so sweet.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
'I'm nervous to audition. I just want to go, though.
'I'm in the last group and I feel like it's never-ending.'
Come on! Just let me dance!
It's like an itch that can't be scratched.
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
So, Beth, why do you dance?
Well, some people tell me I'm kind of a little crazy,
and loud, so I love to express that with my dancing.
And it's embarrassing,
but I really miss James and kind of want to see him
so I'd love to make A-Troupe! Yeah, that's it!
-Sorry, that's embarrassing!
'Beth telling me that, you know, the only reason why'
she wants to be in A-Troupe is because of James is kind of lame.
'I mean, it's just weird that she would say that.'
-Hey, guys, what's up?
-How you doing?
Um, I'm doing all right.
'Well, I'm at the studio because my mom took me out so that'
I could focus on my math because my math grades were slipping.
We're here to do your daily math pop quiz. Are you ready?
-Yeah. Um, but I made cue cards this time. So...
-Everyone who is a part of A-Troupe has been taking shifts
to help James with his math.
What is cosecant?
-Um, the inverse of cosine.
'It's important to pass because if I pass it,'
I get to go back to the studio. And I get a date with Riley.
Does sine to the power of 4 times theta minus cos to the power of 4
times theta equal 2 sine squared theta minus 1?
No, no... You just have to say if it's equal or not.
-OK, let's do another one.
Because you need to get these right.
'I don't really know if he'll make it back.'
But I really hope that he does cos he's a huge part of A-Troupe.
I don't know if I can learn all the material in time,
and I'm kinda stressed out about learning the dance.
I've gotta get to know it a little better I think.
Well, I mean, I guess I could come teach you?
Yeah, that'd be cool. I'm down for that.
It's technically not at the studio, and I mean, as long as your mom
doesn't see you dancing, it doesn't matter
if other people see you dancing.
Technically, my mom's not going to see it,
so I'm not breaking the rules.
This place is huge.
This is their B-Studio.
They have a piano!
We have a boom box.
This studio is amazing.
There's a tech booth with a projector screen.
Do they show movies in here?
It's state of the art. It has everything.
This is insane, Steph!
Compared to The Next Step,
it doesn't even compare.
So I hear you two girls would like to audition for Elite.
-Do you understand who we are?
Yes. That's why we came here.
Stephie and I are two of the best dancers from our studio.
We want to be with the BEST studio.
And your studio is?
-The Next Step.
-I don't think I've heard of The Next Step.
Um, I've heard of it,
-but isn't it pretty wreck?
-It's pretty competitive, actually.
Nice sweater, by the way.
It's really red.
'They're just trying to mess with our heads.'
And I totally respect that.
-What do you think, Amanda?
-I think we should talk about it.
-OK. We'll go chat and we'll be back, girls.
'Right now, I'm at James's school just to keep him up'
on the choreography for the Regionals routine.
James! Hey, you ready to learn Michelle's choreography?
I can't, I'm sorry. There's too much on my plate right now, OK?
What! No, James, come on!
My teacher just scheduled a math retest for tomorrow.
So? You know this stuff, James.
You've been studying for weeks.
'I'm not ready for the exam, I'm not going to pass it.'
I've already accepted that I'm not coming back to the studio.
Just relax, OK?
I'm telling you, I don't know any of it.
I have to get tutored after class, I still don't know it!
-OK, yes, you do.
-No, I don't!
OK, you know what? Let me prove it to you. Here.
-Oh, my gosh! Did you bring cue cards?
Can you just tell me the angle?
-I don't know, 92? I have no idea!
-This is a right angle, right!
-Right angle triangle...
-Cos 90 degrees.
-So how many degrees are left over to make the other two?
Exactly, you just figured it out.
That's one question. There's going to be like, 50 on the test.
One out of 50, what is that, like, 2%?
Exactly, you just figured out another math question.
'I do think James will pass his exam.'
He just has to believe in himself.
I came to Elite to figure out what's going on with me and Emily.
-Hey! I got your text.
-Not much, how are you?
I'm good. I have to get back in there, but how's the studio?
Have they replaced Steph and I yet, or...?
Kate and Chris are auditioning B-Troupe.
-Well, that's a good decision.
Look, I really have to head back in. Is that it?
Um, I just wanted to say hi.
-I just wanted to...
-..you took three buses to come say hi to me?
'It's a long way from where he lives.'
This must be important to him.
Eldon, get to the point, hon.
You're auditioning for Elite and...
what about us?
We're not really going out so...
I wanted to know where we are in our relationship.
Eldon, it doesn't matter where I dance,
we're still going to be together.
-Is that what you were worried about?
That was really cute.
'He's been there for me through everything'
and being official with Eldon
'is kind of an amazing feeling.'
-Don't worry. Nothing's going to change, OK?
-Ugh. There you are!
Amanda and Lucien have made up their mind.
We need to go. I've been looking everywhere for you.
OK, wish me luck. I'll see you later, OK?
-See you later.
-Can you hurry?
-I'm coming! I'm coming!
It feels amazing to finally be Emily's boyfriend.
(..The Next Step, and missing class probably.)
Girls, we don't appreciate tardiness here at Elite...
-..but we have decided to let you audition.
-Let's see what you've got.
We're just going to go get changed and we'll be right back.
I'm still really nervous but I'm a little relieved when Amanda
and Lucien decide that Emily and I can audition.
'I'm ecstatic. I just want to get out there, I want to dance'
and I want to prove to them that this is where I belong,
that this is my new home.
You answered every question right.
-You know all this stuff, I told you this.
-I hope you're right.
I know I'm right. High-five.
'He just got every single question right that I asked him,'
so he's clearly capable of doing this.
She believes in me, when no-one else does.
It feels like anything is possible with Riley.
Follow me. Ready?
Riley, what are you doing?
Yo, there's nothing to see. Hit the road.
'I begin dancing, because for so long I've always'
been the one who's always so stressed out about everything,
'and for once James is now stressed out about math, and'
I just need to show him how to let loose.
-Come on. James.
-Just learn the choreography. You can do this.
-In front of the school?
-Do it for me.
-OK, well, I don't know it.
-OK, well, then, let me teach you.
-So go slowly.
-From the top.
And who's left?
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
'I'm so excited I get a second chance'
to audition for A-Troupe.
That's never happened.
Why do you dance?
Uh, I dance because when I was a little kid I was really fidgety
-and my parents got extremely worried.
And so we were talking to a couple other people
and they suggested that they put me in dance.
And I instantly fell in love with it.
-I was with the people that were fidgety as well, and...
..I was like, I was at home.
'Giselle's answer is really moving.'
A lot of kids feel like they don't fit in and they don't belong
'and then when you find that one place where you just'
feel so at home...? I'm getting goosebumps just talking about it.
'We belong in this crazy little dance world.'
Are you ready?
DANCE MUSIC PLAYS
'I'm just leaving my heart on that dance floor.
'I'm spinning and I'm doing acro like I've never done it before.'
DANCE MUSIC CONTINUES
This is where I want to be. I can't stay at the Next Step and be happy
knowing that everyone went behind my back and betrayed me like that.
It's just time for me to take the next step away from The Next Step.
'As I'm dancing it kind of just makes me forget
'about all the math and everything
'and it just makes me realise that I really don't want to stop'
dancing at the studio.
'This studio is amazing. I love to dance and that's all I want to do.'
We both want a fresh start.
Thank you, guys. If we could swap with the next group
and then we'll go over the choreography with you guys.
'I've been working so hard, you wouldn't even believe me.'
I've been in the studio every single night.
I just really, really hope I make it this time.
I think the audition went really, really well. So I'm just anxious.
I just want to know already.
'I just keep staring at my phone.'
'I talked to Chloe and she said'
she would text me if she heard anything. But still no text.
Did you hear anything yet?
SHE SIGHS No.
A-Troupe means the world to me.
'If I don't get in, I will be devastated.
'There are two spots,'
gotta stay positive.
All right, so we've talked it through
and we have made a decision of the two individuals
that will move up from B-Troupe into A for Regionals.
And we just wanted to let you guys know first
before giving them the news.
To add two new people into the group
so quickly right before Regionals,
it's going to be hard to mix all our chemistries together.
So we've done a lot of deliberating.
A lot of talented dancers, and the two individuals...
-They've really improved.
-Yeah, a lot.
And the two individuals that will be moving up
from B-Troupe to A-Troupe is...
Are there still auditions for A-Troupe?
Well, no, they're finished.
'Stephanie walking in was kind of ridiculous.'
If you left, then you left. Why come back?
'I come back to The Next Step cos I have nowhere else to go.'
I thought I was going to get into Elite,
so I didn't really think of anything else.
I know instantly that Emily made it to Elite and she's not coming back.
Do you guys think you could make an exception?
Do you think I could audition?
