One, two... Full out, Noah.

0:00:030:00:05

'Noah is one of the three dancers going to the qualifier

0:00:050:00:07

'to represent The Next Step'

0:00:070:00:08

and he's marking the routine.

0:00:080:00:11

So I need to know, right here and right now, if I can depend on you.

0:00:110:00:14

I won't let you down. I promise.

0:00:140:00:16

'I want to be there for the team.'

0:00:160:00:18

To be honest, I'm not sure my back is ready.

0:00:180:00:22

Skylar, I was really impressed with your trio but I've decided

0:00:220:00:25

to go with the original trio.

0:00:250:00:27

'Riley just made a huge mistake.'

0:00:280:00:31

She doesn't see that now, but she will. She will.

0:00:310:00:34

We just have to finish in the top four in the qualifier,

0:00:430:00:47

and we're on our way to regionals.

0:00:470:00:49

'I can't believe I'm here.'

0:00:490:00:51

I'm about to dance my very first competition as a member of A-Troupe.

0:00:510:00:54

-You excited?

-I'm very excited.

0:00:540:00:56

'I feel pretty good'

0:00:560:00:57

but my back is still bothering me.

0:00:570:00:59

I'm not going to tell anyone because I don't want to worry them.

0:00:590:01:02

-You guys ready?

-We're ready.

0:01:020:01:04

Then let's win the qualifier.

0:01:040:01:07

We're the reigning internationals champions.

0:01:070:01:09

Qualifying for regionals should be a piece of cake,

0:01:090:01:12

so why do I feel so nervous?

0:01:120:01:14

-All right, hands in.

-Let's go.

-One, two, three...

0:01:140:01:16

-ALL:

-The Next Step!

0:01:160:01:18

Let's go!

0:01:180:01:19

Qualifier, here we come.

0:01:190:01:22

# We

0:01:220:01:24

# We're gonna show the world

0:01:240:01:28

# Everything we're made of

0:01:280:01:31

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

0:01:310:01:39

Stand up!

0:01:440:01:46

-Sloane.

-Hey.

-What is this?

0:02:050:02:07

-I'm setting up for the party.

-What party?

0:02:070:02:09

The congratulations-on-qualifying party to welcome back the trio

0:02:090:02:12

from regionals qualifier.

0:02:120:02:14

I want the trio to know that we're rooting for them,

0:02:140:02:16

so I decided to throw a surprise party to celebrate

0:02:160:02:18

after their big win at the qualifier.

0:02:180:02:20

Did Riley tell you to do that?

0:02:200:02:22

Cos this is kind of weird, knowing that we haven't won anything yet.

0:02:220:02:25

No. It was my idea.

0:02:250:02:28

Sloane's heart is in the right place but from my experience,

0:02:280:02:31

if you celebrate too early, you bring bad karma.

0:02:310:02:33

-Are you going to help me or not?

-I'm in. I love a good party.

-Me too.

0:02:330:02:38

'Sloane's right. Setting up for this

0:02:380:02:39

'party is a great way to distract ourselves from the qualifier.'

0:02:390:02:43

I'm not thinking about what could go wrong any more.

0:02:430:02:45

James texted me good luck earlier

0:02:520:02:54

but I was asleep. Now I'm trying to text him back but he's asleep.

0:02:540:02:58

This time difference is a killer.

0:02:580:03:01

-Hey.

-Hey.

-How are you doing?

0:03:010:03:04

I feel strange.

0:03:060:03:07

I feel like I'm responsible for whatever happens today

0:03:070:03:10

but I'm not dancing, so I have control over none of it.

0:03:100:03:13

That's not true. You still do.

0:03:130:03:15

This is Riley's first big test as studio head.

0:03:150:03:18

She needs to remember that this team is hers now

0:03:180:03:20

and that it's up to her to motivate this trio.

0:03:200:03:22

I think Noah, Richelle and Piper would really appreciate

0:03:220:03:25

some words of wisdom from us veterans.

0:03:250:03:27

That's a good idea.

0:03:270:03:29

Michelle's right. I need to help get my team mentally focused

0:03:290:03:32

for this qualifier.

0:03:320:03:33

-Why don't you talk to Piper?

-OK.

0:03:330:03:35

Amanda, why don't you talk to Richelle,

0:03:350:03:38

-and then I'll talk to Noah.

-OK.

-Hey, Noah...

0:03:380:03:41

'I would have liked to be the one to give Noah a pep talk.'

0:03:410:03:43

What's a better pep talk than,

0:03:430:03:45

"I have feelings for you"?

0:03:450:03:47

So, how are you feeling?

0:03:470:03:49

Good, why?

0:03:490:03:50

No reason. Just want to make sure you're feeling good for the trio.

0:03:500:03:54

If Riley finds out something's wrong

0:03:540:03:55

with my back, it'll just make her more worried

0:03:550:03:57

and I don't want to make her job more stressful than it already is.

0:03:570:04:00

I mean, you're our most experienced dancer,

0:04:000:04:02

so I'm really counting on you to be our rock.

0:04:020:04:04

You know what? Call me igneous.

0:04:040:04:07

Did you say ignoramus?

0:04:070:04:09

No, igneous, it's like a kind of rock.

0:04:090:04:11

Oh. OK.

0:04:110:04:13

-Igneous.

-Igne-os.

0:04:130:04:16

It actually is pronounced "igneous"

0:04:160:04:18

but it sounds way better when you say "igne-os".

0:04:180:04:21

You know, if I was a superhero, I would be called Igne-os.

0:04:210:04:24

-Igne-os.

-Yes.

-OK.

0:04:240:04:27

-'Would all dance teams please report to the main stage?'

-You've got this.

-Thank you, Michelle.

-Good luck.

0:04:270:04:31

-'All dance teams, please report to the main stage.'

-Let's do this.

0:04:310:04:34

-All right, Next Step, let's do it.

-Whoo!

0:04:340:04:36

Apples? What kind of party food is that?

0:04:490:04:52

I like healthy choices at a party.

0:04:520:04:55

Oh...

0:04:550:04:57

Great, no-one can eat that one now.

0:04:570:04:58

Guys, this reminds me of this crazy thing that happened

0:04:580:05:02

on my first dance competition.

0:05:020:05:04

What was it? Go on.

0:05:040:05:05

So, I got cast to be the lead in a duet with

0:05:050:05:08

the cutest guy in the whole troupe. We were playing Adam and Eve.

0:05:080:05:11

-Aw! That's romantic.

-That's so cute.

0:05:110:05:14

Anyway, I was supposed to give Adam the apple, right,

0:05:140:05:17

but then I dropped it right when he was doing all these crazy spins

0:05:170:05:20

and he kicked it into the audience.

0:05:200:05:22

It bounced off three kids and hit the judge right in the face.

0:05:230:05:26

So let me get the physics straight -

0:05:260:05:28

the apple bounced off of three kids and then hit the judge in the face?

0:05:280:05:32

That's a magic apple.

0:05:320:05:33

How did the dance score?

0:05:330:05:35

We got disqualified.

0:05:360:05:38

I don't want this to happen to me ever again.

0:05:380:05:41

Apple?

0:05:410:05:43

Were you not listening to the story? No, thank you!

0:05:430:05:46

Well, an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

0:05:460:05:48

She's kind of got a point.

0:05:480:05:50

'Sloane has one of the worst'

0:05:500:05:51

competition stories I've ever heard. But I might be able to top it.

0:05:510:05:56

'Please welcome Team Gemini to the floor.'

0:05:560:05:59

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:05:590:06:01

'The first few teams were good but not great.'

0:06:050:06:07

I won't have to push my back too hard to get to the top four.

0:06:070:06:10

Never heard of this dance studio before.

0:06:100:06:12

'I recognise some of the teams from past regionals'

0:06:120:06:14

but the Geminis are brand-new.

0:06:140:06:17

Where did they come from?

0:06:170:06:19

MUSIC SLOWLY BUILDS

0:06:190:06:21

APPLAUSE

0:06:280:06:30

APPLAUSE

0:06:410:06:43

The Geminis start slow, but once they turn it on, I can't look away.

0:06:430:06:49

MUSIC SPEEDS UP

0:06:490:06:52

'Even though I was a little nervous,

0:06:590:07:00

'deep down I thought we'd qualify no problem,'

0:07:000:07:03

but now I'm not so sure.

0:07:030:07:05

Are you OK?

0:07:050:07:07

Yeah. Yeah, no, I just...

0:07:070:07:09

I have the utmost trust in our dancers.

0:07:100:07:12

-It's just that...

-I think it's time that you get a pep talk too.

0:07:120:07:16

Riley, you've taken on so much in such a little amount of time

0:07:160:07:20

and you've handled it brilliantly. The trio's ready and so are you. OK?

0:07:200:07:24

OK.

0:07:260:07:27

'This is exactly what James would say if he was here. I'm grateful'

0:07:270:07:31

that Alfie has so much faith in me.

0:07:310:07:33

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:350:07:38

'After seeing the Geminis' performance'

0:07:430:07:45

now I see I'm going to have to give it everything I got.

0:07:450:07:48

I hope I have enough.

0:07:490:07:50

'The scores have been tabulated.

0:07:500:07:53

The judges have awarded Team Gemini 97 points.

0:07:530:07:57

'A new qualifier record!'

0:07:570:08:00

Did she say 97?

0:08:000:08:02

'The Geminis have set the bar impossibly high.'

0:08:020:08:05

Getting to regionals just got a lot harder.

0:08:050:08:09

I have the competition horror story to end all horror stories.

0:08:190:08:23

-OK, bring it on.

-You ready?

0:08:230:08:25

We were setting up for the party,

0:08:250:08:26

but now we're telling competition horror stories.

0:08:260:08:29

It's helping us keep our mind off the qualifier.

0:08:290:08:31

So I'm at my first competition with my dance crew.

0:08:310:08:33

We get there, I have to use the washroom ASAP,

0:08:330:08:35

so I run to the bathroom and I come back.

0:08:350:08:37

I thought I heard my crew being called, so I run onstage

0:08:370:08:40

and I realise it's the wrong crew.

0:08:400:08:42

-What happened?

-What did you do?

0:08:420:08:43

The music started, so I couldn't do anything.

0:08:430:08:45

I just had to dance with them.

0:08:450:08:47

I was mimicking the choreography and it was horrible.

0:08:470:08:49

And the worst part is they had a tutting section in total unison.

0:08:490:08:52

Oh. Well, did anyone notice?

0:08:520:08:54

Of course everybody noticed! It's tutting! They're doing this...

0:08:540:08:57

And I was doing this.

0:09:010:09:03

-Well...

-I don't really see the difference.

0:09:050:09:08

-Yeah, they look the same.

-Yeah.

0:09:080:09:10

I actually can see the difference.

0:09:100:09:11

I'm just trying to make Henry feel better.

0:09:110:09:13

-It was bad, OK?

-OK.

0:09:130:09:16

Well, it must have been really hard for you.

0:09:160:09:18

Yeah. We all do stupid things when we're little kids. It's OK.

0:09:180:09:21

Actually, it happened last year.

0:09:210:09:24

Oh.

0:09:240:09:26

THEY LAUGH

0:09:270:09:29

These guys told some pretty embarrassing dance stories,

0:09:290:09:33

but they've got nothing on mine.

0:09:330:09:35

-They were so great.

-I know.

0:09:390:09:41

-Did you see how high his demi-pointe was on his turns?

-Yes.

0:09:410:09:45

It's amazing. I can't believe it.

0:09:450:09:47

OK, well, I'm going to go say hi to Noah.

0:09:470:09:49

Why?

0:09:490:09:51

You know, just to say hi, give him a little pep talk.

0:09:510:09:54

Team spirit kind of thing.

0:09:540:09:56

-OK.

-OK.

0:09:570:09:59

'After that Gemini dance'

0:09:590:10:00

Noah could use a boost. I'm just going to remind him

0:10:000:10:03

that there's people out here who think he's amazing.

0:10:030:10:05

HE EXHALES

0:10:050:10:07

HE GASPS

0:10:100:10:12

Amanda. What are you... What are you doing here?

0:10:120:10:15

I'm sorry to bother you. I just...

0:10:150:10:17

Um, I wanted to tell you that...

0:10:170:10:21

I like you. A lot. And I want to be around you all the time.

0:10:230:10:28

I just wanted to wish you good luck. You're going to do great.

0:10:290:10:33

Thanks, Amanda.

0:10:330:10:34

I wish I could say that.

0:10:340:10:36

Well, I... I think I'm on next, so...

0:10:430:10:45

Oh, yeah, you should get going.

0:10:450:10:47

Good luck. Again.

0:10:470:10:49

Thanks. Again.

0:10:490:10:52

'Whenever I'm feeling down, Amanda is always there for me.'

0:10:520:10:55

All of a sudden, I forget about my back and feel amazing.

0:10:550:11:00

So do you have any competition horror stories you can tell us about?

0:11:000:11:03

Um...

0:11:030:11:05

Sloane and I already told our horror stories, but Amy's been stalling,

0:11:050:11:08

so that means she must have a really juicy one.

0:11:080:11:11

-You've got one. You're hesitating. Spill it.

-Yeah, what is it? Tell us.

0:11:110:11:14

You have to promise not to laugh.

0:11:140:11:17

-I promise.

-OK.

0:11:170:11:19

OK, well, I was at my first competition, doing my solo.

0:11:190:11:23

It was great, by the way.

0:11:230:11:25

-Of course. Continue.

-Yeah, what happened?

0:11:250:11:28

Well, when I went to do the splits,

0:11:280:11:30

my pants completely ripped.

0:11:300:11:33

Like, wide open.

0:11:330:11:34

And the worst part is, I was wearing my days of the week underpants.

0:11:340:11:38

And it was the wrong day.

0:11:380:11:40

I couldn't move my legs at all.

0:11:400:11:42

Or else the whole audience would see the rip.

0:11:420:11:45

So I decided to do the dance without legs.

0:11:450:11:50

What?

0:11:500:11:52

How do you dance without legs?

0:11:520:11:53

Well, you kind of just...

0:11:530:11:55

..move around and shuffle like this.

0:11:560:12:00

THEY LAUGH

0:12:000:12:02

'I've got to hand it to Amy, that was quick thinking.'

0:12:020:12:04

She invented a new dance on the spot.

0:12:040:12:06

So what happened when you had to do acro?

0:12:060:12:08

I did this.

0:12:080:12:10

Oh, my gosh!

0:12:100:12:12

And then, to top it off, I did some log rolls.

0:12:120:12:15

Log rolls?

0:12:150:12:17

-And end like that?

-Yes!

-OK, I got to try that.

0:12:180:12:21

Yeah, how do you even do that?

0:12:210:12:23

See? You just can't do that because then the whole audience...

0:12:230:12:26

You can't open your legs.

0:12:260:12:28

Yo, guys, check out my log roll.

0:12:310:12:33

THEY LAUGH

0:12:350:12:36

'I've never been able to look back at the story and laugh before'

0:12:360:12:39

so that's an improvement.

0:12:390:12:41

# Like the way you move

0:12:430:12:44

# Like the way you shake

0:12:440:12:46

# Doing all the things that you know I can't take... #

0:12:460:12:49

'Now, taking the stage, your internationals champions,

0:12:490:12:53

'The Next Step!'

0:12:530:12:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:550:12:57

'This is the moment I've been waiting for.'

0:12:570:12:59

I hope I have the dance of my life.

0:12:590:13:02

I am so ready for this.

0:13:020:13:04

THEY CHEER

0:13:040:13:07

'There are people out there who are depending on me, who believe in me,'

0:13:070:13:10

like Amanda. I'm not going to let her down.

0:13:100:13:13

You've got this!

0:13:130:13:14

'There's no more that I can do to help this trio out.'

0:13:140:13:18

The fate of The Next Step is standing on that stage.

0:13:180:13:22

GENTLY BUILDING PIANO MUSIC

0:13:230:13:26

CHEERING

0:13:430:13:45

-Yes!

-Yeah.

0:13:450:13:46

'The adrenaline is pumping and I can't feel my back at all.'

0:13:460:13:49

I'm going to make it.

0:13:490:13:51

Whoo!

0:13:520:13:54

This is what internationals champions look like.

0:13:550:13:59

CHEERING

0:14:000:14:01

Yes.

0:14:010:14:02

Ow!

0:14:080:14:10

Uh-oh. I'm in trouble.

0:14:100:14:12

Something's wrong. Noah's not OK.

0:14:170:14:20

What was that?

0:14:250:14:27

My back is in agony. I've never felt pain like this before.

0:14:300:14:34

I just have to try and get through this dance.

0:14:340:14:36

'I have to fight through this pain. The team still has a chance'

0:14:500:14:54

as long as I can finish.

0:14:540:14:56

'I thought I could dance through anything'

0:15:060:15:09

but this is just too much pain.

0:15:090:15:10

That was a disaster.

0:15:190:15:21

'I could have taken Noah off the trio, but I didn't.

0:15:210:15:24

'I had the power to change this'

0:15:240:15:26

and I didn't. This is all my fault.

0:15:260:15:30

We just embarrassed ourselves. If we lose, we deserve it.

0:15:320:15:36

'The Next Step scores 86 points. That puts them in third place.'

0:15:360:15:41

APPLAUSE

0:15:410:15:42

-Noah...

-What's up?

-What was...

0:15:440:15:46

'I don't know what happened to my back'

0:15:490:15:52

but I hope I didn't just cost the team their chance at regionals.

0:15:520:15:55

VIOLIN MUSIC

0:16:040:16:07

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:16:110:16:12

'Right now we're watching the rest of the performances'

0:16:120:16:15

and we're hoping that no-one knocks us out of the top four.

0:16:150:16:18

FAST PERCUSSION MUSIC

0:16:180:16:20

This team is doing a way better job than we did.

0:16:400:16:43

-We're in third.

-That's not that bad.

0:16:460:16:49

Are you kidding me? There are still so many teams to dance.

0:16:490:16:52

-There is no way that we are going to stay in third.

-Relax.

0:16:520:16:55

We just need to place in the top four and we're fine.

0:16:550:16:57

-We've still got a shot.

-Really?

0:16:570:17:00

'I appreciate Alfie trying to stay positive'

0:17:000:17:02

but Richelle's right.

0:17:020:17:03

We're going to need a miracle to try and pull this off.

0:17:030:17:06

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:17:120:17:14

'The fate of The Next Step depends on how these other teams do.'

0:17:210:17:25

We just have to hope that they don't score higher than us.

0:17:250:17:28

'Rhythm Plus scores 92 points.

0:17:280:17:31

'That puts them in third place.'

0:17:310:17:34

APPLAUSE

0:17:340:17:35

Rhythm Plus? We won internationals

0:17:350:17:38

and we're getting outdanced by Rhythm Plus.

0:17:380:17:40

OK, now we're bumped down to fourth.

0:17:400:17:42

There's nothing we can do. We're done.

0:17:420:17:45

I can't listen to this any more. I need to find Noah.

0:17:450:17:48

Noah, are you OK?

0:17:510:17:52

-What place are we in?

-Fourth.

0:17:520:17:55

I let down the team and I ruined the lift.

0:17:550:17:57

-Something seemed to be really bothering you out there.

-I'm fine.

0:17:570:18:00

I just froze up out there.

0:18:000:18:02

'I know the real Noah'

0:18:020:18:03

and this is not nerves.

0:18:030:18:05

-Noah, is there anything at all that I can do for you?

-No.

0:18:050:18:08

Thanks anyway. I just really want to be alone right now.

0:18:080:18:11

'I wish Noah would let me stay.'

0:18:140:18:16

If only he knew how much I cared about him.

0:18:160:18:19

# We're floating through the darkness endlessly... #

0:18:200:18:24

# Do you keep holding on

0:18:280:18:31

# To days we left behind?

0:18:310:18:36

# Do you keep photographs that hold you back in time?

0:18:360:18:42

# Oh, you know, it don't seem that bad

0:18:420:18:46

# Until you see it from the outside

0:18:460:18:49

# All those people that... #

0:18:490:18:52

Right now we still have a chance.

0:18:520:18:53

We're barely hanging on to fourth place and we need this team

0:18:530:18:56

to score lower than us.

0:18:560:18:57

# Now we've got courage in the heart and rhythm in the soul... #

0:18:590:19:02

This does not look good.

0:19:040:19:06

# These feet, these eyes, these hands take you

0:19:060:19:11

# High

0:19:110:19:13

# Unstoppable, unbreakable... #

0:19:130:19:16

Excuse me. Excuse me. Coming through.

0:19:160:19:20

Oh, hello, Miss Riley.

0:19:200:19:21

What did you think of our dance? Pretty good, right?

0:19:210:19:24

Wish we could say the same for you.

0:19:240:19:26

Great. Two twins from the Geminis come to gloat.

0:19:260:19:29

They just don't make internationals champions like they used to.

0:19:290:19:33

The Next Step is not out yet.

0:19:330:19:35

Oh, you're right. Not yet.

0:19:350:19:37

I can't believe that these jerks are trash-talking us right now.

0:19:380:19:42

But deep down, I know that they're right.

0:19:420:19:44

They gave the best performance of the day.

0:19:440:19:47

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:510:19:55

'They didn't make a single mistake.'

0:19:550:19:57

At this point, I don't think we're going to make it.

0:19:570:20:01

-Looks good?

-Yeah, looks good. Everything's ready.

-I like this.

0:20:010:20:04

I got the balloons!

0:20:040:20:05

When Riley and the others get back here, they'll be so surprised.

0:20:050:20:08

This is the perfect way to end an incredible day.

0:20:080:20:10

All we need now is the trio to come back with big news.

0:20:100:20:13

'Dance Inc has scored...

0:20:130:20:16

'95 points!

0:20:160:20:18

'That puts them in second place.'

0:20:180:20:21

I can't believe it. My first A-Troupe competition and we lost.

0:20:210:20:26

PHONE CHIMES

0:20:260:20:28

-Who's that?

-It's from Piper.

0:20:300:20:32

We didn't qualify.

0:20:350:20:37

The Next Step lost a qualifier?

0:20:390:20:42

This was supposed to be our big day.

0:20:420:20:45

What happens to A-Troupe now?

0:20:450:20:47

Where do we go from here?

0:20:480:20:49

'I have never been so disappointed in the team or in myself.'

0:20:530:20:57

I don't know how The Next Step is ever going to come back from this.

0:20:570:21:02

# We

0:21:040:21:07

# We're gonna show the world

0:21:070:21:11

# Everything we're made of

0:21:110:21:14

# We're gonna tear the roof off this place

0:21:140:21:19

# You

0:21:190:21:21

# You can never fade us out

0:21:210:21:25

# Don't even ask the DJ

0:21:250:21:28

# Everybody knows we own this sound. #

0:21:280:21:33

As A-Troupe dances at the qualifier, Amanda struggles to tell Noah about her feelings, while Noah continues to hide his injury.
