Previously on The Next Step...
I am auditioning tomorrow for a worldwide dance tour.
Do you think I could go with you?
-Could you imagine doing this tour?
-It would be insane.
No, it would be out of this world!
I am really excited for Gisele.
Even though I didn't get a spot on the tour,
I am so happy that she did.
There's so much I need to say to you but I want to say it in person.
When are you coming back to the studio?
I don't think you understand, Riley.
I'm not coming back. I'm in Switzerland.
Alfie will not be returning to The Next Step.
-He's a prince.
And he has royal business in Switzerland.
Getting the team to regionals without Alfie is going
to be really, really tough.
OK, now that everybody is here, let's get right to business.
I thought, since we are at the cusp of regionals, I would go over how
the competition is exactly going to work one last time.
So, there are eight teams competing for the regionals title.
First round will be solos. Michelle, that's where you come in.
I'm ready to rock. I'm good to go.
I have been training nonstop for this solo.
This dance will determine our road to the semifinals,
and I cannot let the team down.
If Michelle wins, sorry, WHEN Michelle wins,
then we move forward to the quartet.
Cassie, Piper, Skyler and Sloane, that's you guys.
We're definitely ready. We've been working really hard.
If we win the quartet, then we get a bye to the semifinals.
That will give us more time to prepare, and at regionals,
However, if Michelle loses, we go to the trio round.
Amy, Amanda and Michelle, that's you three.
Now, you absolutely have to win, because if you lose,
we're going home.
Well, we're ready if the team needs us.
If Michelle loses the solo, then it will be up to us.
We have to win the trio so we can advance to the duet round.
Once you three win, we then move onto duets.
Richelle and Noah, that's you two.
Once you guys kill it, then we move on to the semifinal group dance.
Henry, Sloane, Noah, and in Alfie's spot, Piper.
I'm happy about getting the small group,
but I'm worried about replacing Alfie.
Those are some pretty big shoes to fill.
And once you guys win, all we have left is the ten-person routine
for the final round.
You actually haven't chosen the final line-up for that routine yet.
And with Alfie gone,
that means there's only going to be one alternate.
Someone here won't be dancing in the finals.
One of us is going to be an alternate.
I hope it's not me.
And I've actually made my decision.
Cassie, I am very sorry, but you won't be dancing
in the final routine.
It's OK. I understand.
But as our alternate, you're still a very important dancer.
We need you to be ready.
I feel terrible.
All I wanted to do was help the team win at regionals.
Now I'm just stuck sitting on the sidelines.
# We are gonna show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're going to tear the roof off this place. #
Right now, we're teaching Piper Alfie's choreo
for the semifinal routine.
To be honest, I'm a little worried about this dance.
Regionals is right around the corner
and Piper has a lot of catching up to do.
Learning complex choreo was hard.
But learning complex choreo designed for Alfie is impossible.
Even though I am an alternate for finals, I'm still in the quartet.
Since Sloane and Piper are working on this dance, I have nothing to do.
This choreography is not going to work with me in Alfie's place.
We have to make adjustments.
-I'm not Alfie.
-OK, well, Piper, there is not a lot of time,
so we have to make as much of this work as possible.
Look, I wish Alfie was here too, but I'm doing the best I can.
Piper, we're not saying you're not doing a good job, OK?
But like I said, we don't have a lot of time.
We all need to work on things.
Honestly, we're just going to mess this up for The Next Step.
OK, you guys, be positive!
I can see what the real problem is.
Alfie leaving has made everyone lose their focus.
-Let's figure this end out.
-Well, I can't lift you, so...
I've got it. I know how I can help The Next Step win at regionals.
Getting Alfie to come back.
After all the hard work and drama,
I can't believe we are finally going to regionals.
I know, it's crazy, right?
No-one should be more excited for regionals than me and Amanda.
Seriously, I haven't felt this good in a long time.
And the comeback that we've made, we were alternates last year!
And I am the soloist for regionals. I cannot wait!
-It's going to be fun.
-Yeah, you did it, Michelle.
-We both did.
-And we're going to be a big part at regionals.
Michelle has accomplished a lot more than I have.
If I don't get to dance the trio,
then I basically have one group dance to show for my entire year.
-Giselle, what are you doing here?
-What are you doing?
-It's so good to see you.
-So nice to see you guys.
I just had a couple of days off tour, so I came to say
-good luck for regionals.
Giselle has gone from A Troupe to dancing in a professional tour.
I auditioned too, but I didn't make it.
I wish I could stay and chat, but I think I have to get going.
I have to rehearse my solo.
I'm the first round up at regionals.
-You got the solo!
-Michelle, that's amazing.
-I'll see you later.
OK. So nice to see you again.
Well, I should probably go, too.
Actually, do you mind hanging out for a moment?
-I kind of have something important to talk to you about.
I am so excited to talk to Amanda.
She doesn't know it yet,
but I have some news that's going to change her life.
The forms are submitted and everyone is rehearsing on their routines,
so why do I feel so nervous?
-Congratulations for what?
We haven't actually won anything yet.
In fact, we're actually in a bit of a precarious position right now
and I don't really know if we'll be able to.
-What are you so stressed out about?
Regionals are just around the corner and I'm the head of the studio and
-we are the defending champions.
-Step away from the beans.
James, today I am in full bean mode.
Riley, you're the head of the studio -
you have to get the team ready for regionals,
and you've already done that, right?
Yeah, but now I have to stress and worry and obsess over everything.
Right. Yeah, I've heard enough.
-Where are you going?
-I have an idea.
If Riley is worrying, then the team is probably worrying, too.
Luckily, I can help.
Great, James has an idea.
One more thing to worry about.
I heard that.
We're taking a break from our small group routine,
so I came to the rehearsal room to cool down.
Thanks for the water?
-What's the occasion?
-It's our friend-iversary.
You didn't remember?
LaTroy and I have been friends for our entire lives.
Once a year, we remember the day we first met with our friend-iversary.
I did remember. I just wasn't sure if you would remember.
I would never forget.
Our friendship was really tested,
so it means a lot that LaTroy remembered today.
Do you remember how we met?
Yeah, how could I forget?
You threw a toy truck at my head.
Yeah. I'm sorry about that.
I like to make a strong first impression.
Well, you know, it worked, because I had the imprint of a steering
wheel right here in the middle of my head. Right here.
Well, you got me back when you convinced me to go off
-that bike ramp.
That was bad.
-That was hilarious.
-No, it wasn't.
-Sorry, I didn't mean to interrupt your date, but...
This isn't a date. That is not what this is.
This is a friend-iversary.
Yeah, that's cool. I don't care.
All I need to know is if I can use the studio to rehearse my solo.
Yeah, for sure. We will clear it out in five minutes.
-OK, good. Thanks.
Why does Michelle think I'm dating Sloane?
Everyone knows I'm dating Amy.
I am dating Amy. Amy. All right? Cool.
Tour has been amazing.
We've been to Berlin, Paris, Rome.
-Oh, my gosh!
-It has been unreal.
Giselle, that's amazing. I'm so happy for you.
Giselle is telling me all about all her great experiences on tour,
and it's just making me wish I could've gone too.
There is one thing missing, obviously, which is you.
I know. I wish I booked the tour when I auditioned,
but I didn't and there is nothing I can really do about that.
That's not really true.
What do you mean?
There's one spot open on the tour.
When are auditions?
-You almost got the spot last time, so the tour manager
sent me here to personally invite you on the tour.
Oh, my goodness, Giselle, please tell me you're not kidding!
I am so not kidding!
Oh! When do I start?
OK, so, that is a yes, or...?
Yes! That's a yes!
That's awesome. There is a catch.
-Kind of a big one, though.
We would leave for the tour the same day The Next Step would be dancing
in the finals at regionals.
I can't bail on the team.
I'm in that number.
I'm one of those ten dancers.
-I guess you have a big decision to make.
This is a huge opportunity, but I can't let the team down,
not after Riley gave me this chance. Can I?
I feel guilty about my friend-iversary with Sloane,
so I got to show Amy how important she is to me.
What...are you doing?
Flowers for you.
What's the occasion?
And chocolates, too!
-What are you doing?
-You forgot, didn't you?
It's our ten-week anniversary.
Bam! You don't remember?
I remember. The whole world remembers.
LaTroy can't even remember his own birthday.
Now he cares about some meaningless anniversary?
Something's definitely up.
You're acting awfully strange.
What are you talking about? Ten weeks!
This doesn't have anything to do with your
friend-iversary with Sloane, does it?
-The thing is, about that...
It's totally cool for you to go on a friend date with Sloane.
You guys are really close. I trust you.
Honestly. Don't worry.
After all the drama Sloane and LaTroy went through,
I think it's great that they're back to being best friends.
They can celebrate all they want.
Oh, I'm still eating these, by the way.
The chocolates - not the flowers.
Amy says it's cool for me to hang out with Sloane,
but I still feel guilty.
I know Alfie and Henry spent a lot of time together when he was here.
If I'm going to get Alfie back, Henry is the person he'll listen to.
All right, here goes nothing.
Please pick up.
Hey, guys. What's up?
Hey. How is being a fancy royal prince guy?
I didn't realise the news was out.
I'm sorry for not telling you guys before.
Honestly, man, it's all right.
Just, is that the reason why you can't come back and dance with us?
No, no, of course not.
I love being a part of The Next Step and I would give anything to just
-be another dancer on A Troupe again.
-But you won't, right?
Look, the only thing that's holding me back right now is a broken heart,
and I don't think that's going to go away any time soon.
I get it. Broken hearts are hard to deal with and they take time to get
-Alfie, are you serious?
A Troupe is desperate for you.
When are you going to get over yourself and get back here?
-Riley said Alfie had to go and do Prince things.
This is about a break-up?
-Are you kidding me?
-Sorry about that.
No, it's fine. I completely understand the way you guys feel.
I'm off the team for good now.
Can't you just forget about what happened with Riley
and dance with us at regionals? Please!
We need you.
If you guys are ever in Switzerland, let me now.
Good luck at regionals.
-We tried our best,
but it looks like Alfie is never coming back to The Next Step.
I see a man sitting there with a full bowl of popcorn,
not eating it. There's trouble afoot.
What's going on?
All right, well, I went on this friend date with Sloane.
Not a date, more like a hang-out.
And I felt guilty about it so I tried to do something nice for Amy,
but then she told me I was trying too hard.
-I don't know, man.
-Well, was Amy mad?
No, she was pretty chill about it.
I think I know why you feel so weird.
See, I think you wanted to hang out with Sloane
more than you wanted to hang out with Amy.
If a guy wants to spend time with his girl friend more
than his girlfriend, that has big trouble written all over it.
You should probably keep an eye on that because it could turn into
a little bit of a problem.
-All right, man.
Before I left, everything makes sense.
Sloane, best friend.
And now I'm just confused.
What are we going to do?
Without Alfie we have no chance of winning.
Cass, it is going to be perfectly fine.
Yeah, it's too bad that Alfie left and, yeah,
we're going to have to fix some of our dances, but you know what?
We're going to be OK. It's going to be good.
You know? Then what are you so upset about?
I wanted to help our team win.
Since I'm not in the ten-person dance,
I've been feeling a little left out of everything.
Cass, you're a huge part of the team. Seriously.
Alfie chose to leave. You, me, and the rest of us, we're still here,
and we're going to be a part of the team winning regionals,
whether you're on the dance floor or you're cheering from the wings.
-You really mean that?
It took all of us, even Alfie, to make A Troupe what it is.
I don't know what alchemy is, but if it means
I get to help the team win, I'll take it.
If Henry's right about this alchemy thing,
maybe everything worked out exactly how it was supposed to.
Only time will tell.
James asked me to bring the team into studio A.
What is he up to?
Man, I need the monitor in the right place so I can hear myself.
-All right. What about that?
-What about that?
-What about that?
-You've got to be kidding me, bro.
Right now, the band and I are setting up for the unofficially
official going away to regionals party.
-What is this all about?
-This is your big send-off.
You're going to regionals.
-You did good.
I remember when I was sending you off to regionals,
-but now you're sending me off.
-Yeah, bro, I wish you well.
-You're still hitting that note! OK.
-All right, guys.
We're here to send you off to regionals, so enjoy our performance.
# We are meant to be strong
# That's what we've always been told
# We've got to hold our heads high
# On we go, on we go, on we go... #
I can't stop thinking about Giselle's offer.
I've been wanting something more lately and this tour could be it.
It could be the opportunity that I've been dreaming of.
# Can I stay the same?
# We are, we are, we are the stars above... #
While dancing and listening to James' band,
I noticed that Amanda looks kind of distracted.
-Are you OK?
-Want to dance?
I don't know how I'm going to tell Noah
that I might be leaving the studio.
We have this amazing relationship, and if I go,
I don't know what will happen.
# There's a price that we pay
# If our dreams are forgotten... #
I can't believe I'm going to my first-ever regionals
with my first-ever boyfriend.
This is going to be the best time ever!
# As the days change
# We've got to be upright and... #
LaTroy and I are going to regionals together.
It's almost the best friend-iversary present I could ever ask for.
# We are, we are, we are
# We can, we can, we can... #
I thought my feelings for Sloane were just friendship.
I like Amy, but what if I like Sloane, too?
What happens then?
# We are, we are, we are... #
Riley is about to take her team to her first
regionals as the studio head and I couldn't be more proud of her.
# We all, we all, we all have the spark inside
# So let it all out
# We'll rise up from the ashes 1,000 times... #
James is right. This is exactly what we needed.
# Find a way back home. #
I'm proud of this team.
I'm proud of what we've accomplished.
I just hope we're ready because regionals
is where the real battle begins.
The team prepares to leave for regionals. Cassie is made the alternate dancer but still tries to help the team. Giselle drops by on a break from her tour and gives Amanda a special invitation. LaTroy spends time with both Sloane and Amy.
