The tenth member of A-Troupe is Giselle!
I am so excited to be back in A-Troupe!
Because a great education is just a phone call away!
Don't really want to ever go through that again.
I got to go. Is it OK if I duck out early?
Yeah, I understand.
I haven't told anyone besides Michelle about my job.
Emily made it to Elite and
-she's not coming back.
-I think it would be a good idea
-if we came up with a new routine for regionals.
Emily might share our old routine with the people at Elite.
Yo, are you all right, man?
I landed funny in rehearsal. I think I tweaked my ankle.
I don't want anyone to know about my injury because
they could take the solo away from me, and I'm going to
make sure I keep that solo.

'I've decided to get in some extra practice time just to make
'sure I stay on top of my game.
'I'm going to make sure I don't get bumped back down to B-Troupe.'
'Giselle's solo is amazing.
'I'm really, really happy that I caught her during rehearsal.'
DANCE MUSIC CONTINUES
That was really good.
Now that I'm back in A-Troupe
I'm never going to take it for granted again.

INDIAN MUSIC PLAYS
'Bharatanatyam dancing is a very expressive dance style
'originating from Southern India.'
I brought in these dancers because they are so
expressive and emotional,
and that's what we need to bring into our routines.
'They have these things on their feet that make sound, so when they
'move it just...it adds to it, cos they'll be doing little footwork
'things and it will be like "ding-a-ling-a-ling" on the side.
'So it's just awesome.'
'They are really, really talented
'and it seems that they're really inspiring our whole group.'
'It was such a great idea of Michelle's to
'bring in the Bharatanatyam dancers.'
She's really stepping up as dance captain.
The only thing about
Bharatanatyam dancing is they would never
be able to sneak up behind you
because you're always hearing their bells jingling.
So, you know, you turn around and just be like, "Ha-ha!
"I saw you." Or better yet, "I heard you."
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE
Give it up for our Bharatanatyam dancers!
As dancers, I thought it'd be important to show you guys
a different style of dance that we don't usually look at.
-Bharatanatyam dancers are...
-Wait, wait, wait. Bratha what?
'Where did Michelle find dancers like that?'
I don't even know where Bharatanathia is.
Where did Michelle go?
So my point is, is that the way that they danced was full of soul.
I mean, I think that's what our regionals routine is missing.
I think we should totally do one of their moves!
Like that...that one with the feet.
We could do something like that, just the feeling and the heart.
What if we do an overhead lift?
No, absolutely not. That's way too risky.
We can't throw that in at this point.
Giselle and I used to do overhead lifts all the time.
Yeah, all of the time.
Yeah, what about like the helicopter lift or something like that?
'I think adding an overhead lift would be'
extremely good for our routine, and also, I think it will help me
make my mark in A-Troupe.
Overhead lifts are dangerous, end of discussion.
The girls are so high up in the air, the guys need to be
so strong and sturdy
and if something goes wrong, you know?
OK. We'll think about it.
But in the meantime get back to rehearsal, OK?
I think adding an overhead lift to the dance would be a good idea.
They've done it before, so why not throw it in?
-How cool would the helicopter...?
'I'm very disappointed that Kate and'
Chris are saying no to the helicopter lift.
I know Daniel and I can do it.
'I really don't know why Kate and Chris'
are against Giselle and Daniel doing a lift. They know what they're doing.
I was kind of really disappointed, I mean,
she hasn't seen it before and that's why I wanted to ask
you guys if you could just take me through the helicopter lift.
If you could just show me like how you do it and stuff?
So basically Daniel stands in a second, a wide second,
parallel feet. And I step in front.
I extend my right leg, he grabs underneath my right leg
-and my left hip.
And then Giselle jumps and I throw her in the air.
-And her right leg is going to helicopter over my head.
And then I catch her into the finish.
OK. So could you guys show me right now, like full out?
Uh...there might not be enough space -
-the ceilings are a little low in here.
We could go into studio A.
Yeah, if it's empty we could totally do it, right?
-I don't know.
Are you not comfortable with doing it? Or...?
I'm just a little worried now that Kate and Chris said no.
Listen, I just came from B and I don't want to go back there.
I'm unsure about doing the lift
'mainly because my ankle has just started to heal.
'This is a really risky lift and I don't want to possibly upset the'
injury or injure it further.
You want to shine, Daniel, right?
-Yeah, OK. She's right. We'll do it.
'I can't tell Michelle or Giselle about the real reason
'I don't want to do the lift'
because Kate has just threatened to
take my solo away and if Michelle finds
out that I'm injured she could go to Kate and that solo could be gone.
Hey, how was the audition?
After my talk with Tiffany, I decided to go to the audition.
I don't know how it'll turn out, but I'm glad I went.
I don't know, I don't think it went
too well but at least they didn't laugh at me this time.
Even though Stephanie doesn't feel as if she did well,
I'm sure she did amazingly.
'It always is like that, you can just never tell.'
I dunno, I'm just happy to be back at the studio.
-This is where I always feel safest.
-Totally. You know what?
Just focus on regionals, that way you won't think about the audition.
Tiffany's right, I have to focus on regionals and not on the audition.
Whatever happens happens.
Look at this pomegranate. Just the way the red emphasises the fruit,
this is probably one of Mother Nature's best cre...
I know-I know you're a busy lady. All right.
All right. So...it's cool.
Uh...aim to your left - go!
'So I'm in the juice bar and I see this guy, his name is Marcel.'
I kind of just left his dance troupe without telling him
and I just don't have the guts to confront him about it.
'So I hide behind this little girl.
'I mean, I'm not proud of it but'
sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do.
-(Stay right there. Stay right there.)
-Compass! What's up?
Hey, uh, here's your juice, kid.
'He has a nickname for me'
it's called Compass.
You know, West, North, South - it's direction.
So, Compass kind of makes sense.
-What are you doing?
-Uh, you know, I just...
I just like to give, you know, kids juices.
I like to help out in the community sometimes.
It's been a while.
-Yeah! You know, it's been a while!
-How time flies.
Anyways, I've been texting you, calling you. I mean...
You know, Seeds have been practising hard for that show, and we need you.
Seeds is a street hip-hop dance crew that I used to be in.
I left Seeds because I really wanted to better myself as a dancer.
I really wanted to get formal training.
I wanted to just be well-rounded.
We've been trying to call you and we haven't heard from you, I mean...
-Well, I mean...
-What have you been up to?
I dropped my phone and it just hasn't...
..but I mean yesterday I got it fixed.
So, I mean, I'm all good now.
-PHONE BEEPS AND BUZZES
Ooh! I got a text from my girlfriend!
-You've got a girlfriend?
-Yeah, you know, it's on and...
I mean, no, I mean we're fighting right now, so it's...
-No, I don't have a girlfriend, actually.
-Oh! So come...
-Let's have a drink or...
-No! I mean, she...
-We need you.
I mean, I want her back.
So I've got to go and, you know, console her...
Come on. We'll have a drink or something...
-I'm sorry, man I've got to...
-Compass, come on!
'I don't have a girlfriend'
but if Marcel found out that I was in A-Troupe,
I wouldn't be able to live with that.
Let's just tell him.
OK, we need two things - you can't tell anyone what we're going to
do right now, and we need you to spot us.
Yes and yes.
I have no idea what I am agreeing to right now.
We're going to do the helicopter lift.
'I'm kind of excited that they're doing the lift.
'I think once they show Kate that they'
can do it she'll put it in the dance right away.
I'm really happy Eldon's there. Uh, it's kind of a safety net for me.
Are you guys ready?
'I'm pushing myself to do'
the lift because that's what great dancers do.
-Yeah, let's do it.
-I think we're good.
We got this.
'I'm really relieved that we did the helicopter.
'My ankle feels totally fine'
and I think that we could totally add this in to the routine.
Now all we need to do is find a place in the dance to put it in,
and then we're good.
'I'm really excited to prove that we can do this lift to'
Ms Kate and Chris.
'I hear my phone ring and I rush to the phone.'
I've been waiting for my agent to
call to let me know about this audition.
Really? That's amazing! When do I start shooting?
'So I'm on the phone with my agent and he tells me'
that I got the part in the TV show and I'm so excited!
And then I find out that it shoots the same weekend as regionals.
What am I supposed to do?
I just have to figure some things out and I'll give you a call
when I know what's going on.
Thanks, you too.
# The weight of the world is pushing you down. #
Chloe, I need your money for regionals.
I know, I'll get it to you by the end of the week just like you asked.
'I haven't been able to work enough shifts'
and to make enough money in order to pay for the rest of regionals.
-Is there something going on?
-No, I promise everything's fine.
-Because you know my door's always open.
You can come to me about anything.
-Yes, I know. Don't worry, end of the week.
'I'm really worried that I'm not going to be able to pay.
'But I'm just going to brush it off and take a few extra shifts and'
hope and pray that I'll be able to make enough
money by the end of the week.
If Chloe doesn't give me the money, I mean,
I have no other choice but to say she can't come to regionals.
'We are working on the new version of our regionals routine to
'More Than That.'
'I'm really proud of everyone.
'It really came together and the dancers are looking amazing.'
# I left to plead and fight
# Came back to stop the war
# I danced to the revolution
# You kept me on the floor... #
'Daniel and I are going to spring the lift'
on Ms Kate and Chris.
I've choreographed Giselle and Daniel to do their helicopter lift.
'I think they're just going to be so surprised that they really
'have no option but to put the lift in the routine.'
Sometimes you just got to take risks.
'All of the sudden, Daniel and Giselle break formation.
'What are they doing? This is not what we've rehearsed.'
'I know they're going to nail the lift and'
I know Ms Kate is going to be impressed.
'I feel really confident that Giselle and I can pull this off.'
We've practised and the lift is flawless.
'As soon as I hear a thud'
I know something must've happened.
'Daniel's on the ground'
in so much pain I don't even know what to do.
I don't know if he, if he broke his foot.
My heart breaks for him because he's worked so hard
for so long and he could be out now.
-This is really bad.
-I know. I'm so scared.
'Right now we're just waiting around in Studio A,'
waiting for Kate and Chris to come
back and tell us what's going on with Daniel.
I don't really want to leave at a time like this but,
I've got a shift and I've got to go.
-I have to do it.
-It's fine, I'll cover for you.
Thank you. Can you text me and let me know what happens?
I'll let you know everything that happens, don't worry.
'I let Chloe leave because I know she has to go to work
'and working is a big part of her life.'
How could she leave at a time like this?
How does she always leave?
She has to go somewhere don't worry about it,
it's no-one else's business.
Daniel's injury is serious. It's a grade-three ankle sprain.
'A grade-three ankle sprain means that there are torn ligaments.'
If he doesn't heal properly it could be a career ender.
How long is he out for?
Well the doctors are still running tests but...
..he's definitely out of regionals.
'As soon as Chris tells us
'that Daniel is out for regionals I'm completely bummed.'
That's his career on the line.
'A sprained ankle is serious business.'
'I'm feeling horrible about what I...what I did to Daniel.'
I just took it too far.
This is all your fault! Are you happy now?
Cos if you just listened to Kate and Chris
and not let them do the lift this wouldn't have happened.
You're the dance captain.
'As a dance captain, Michelle's failing.'
She's not putting the team's best interests are heart.
This is not Michelle's fault.
Giselle and Daniel said they could do the lift.
Daniel clearly couldn't do the lift
so Michelle shouldn't have let them do it.
Guys, I don't think it's fair to blame Daniel in this.
No, no! It's definitely Daniel's responsibility!
He knew his ankle was hurt he should've said no to the lift.
You're saying you knew he was injured, and didn't tell us?
You didn't tell me?
'I-I wish that I mentioned Daniel's injury a little earlier,'
but I honestly thought that he had it under control.
He should've known his limits as a dancer -
that's the first rule in dance.
Regardless, Michelle, you're the dance captain and that's your job.
It's your job to know what's going on...
Guys, this is not Michelle's fault.
Dude, why are you defending Michelle?
Because Daniel should've known his limits.
'I thought the lift was a good idea too,
'I don't think Michelle deserves'
everything that Stephanie's saying to her.
I'm really sorry, guys, it's all my fault.
It's no-one's fault.
-It's not her fault!
THEY TALK OVER EACH OTHER
HEY! Everyone, enough! Stop!
Everyone needs to stop blaming everyone else!
OK? It was an accident!
It puts us in a tough position, but stop throwing the blame around.
# Beautiful... #
'James not doing his homework right now is not good.'
We're always at the studio rehearsing and
we just have to find time to finish our work.
'I'm already practising the solo.
'Since Daniel's not going to regionals,
'it falls on my shoulders now.'
How are you, Daniel?
I'm OK. Um...
I ripped the ligaments pretty badly
and it looks like I'm going to need surgery.
And the doctors say I won't be able to dance for months.
'It's really upsetting coming back to the studio and seeing everyone'
because even though I'm injured I know they're going to
move on with their lives, they're going to go to regionals without me.
Daniel is one of my best, best friends
'and we finally got the chance to dance in A-Troupe together'
and now he's out.
'He's a great dancer and he's definitely part of our team
'and it just disappoints me because'
it kinda makes me rethink our chances of winning regionals.
'I won't ever push a dancer as hard as I did to Daniel,'
I mean, it's the worst thing to do.
I'm sorry I let you guys down.
'He was determined to go to regionals'
with us and win regionals, and now he can't even dance.
'Saying bye to Daniel is really hard. I mean, I know'
it's hurting him inside because he has to let go of the studio.
'This will probably end my dance career.
'I worked so hard to get to the point I'm at now,
'I've trained so many years...'
and I got the solo and everything was falling into place
and now it's all ruined.
