Previously on The Next Step...
As long as there's an us, things can never get too completed.
Elliott has it all.
He was finally one person that I trusted on this team.
Guys, just cancel everything.
There is no way that our video is going to hold up.
It was the dancers that unified the team.
It should be put entirely into their hands.
I think the video should be about the story of the studio.
This idea better work.
I really hurt myself, and if everyone finds out
I could be out of this group.
There's no way you're dancing on that hip, Richelle.
I had your back, now you have to have mine.
We have to shoot this video in a couple of days.
Right now, everyone is in practice mode.
It's going to be great.
I'm so excited. Everyone's bringing their best.
Everything is resting on this qualifier video.
I have no idea what to do.
I quit the math team so I would have the solo.
It blew up in my face.
I know Zara is still upset that I took the solo,
but she needs to get over it.
I lost dance captain and I need this.
I think the dancers are doing a great job of putting this together.
I definitely trust the dancers to choreograph this.
They are an amazing team.
They can do this on their own.
I guess we can agree on that.
We just have to get through it together.
I am not going to be the studio head who loses regionals
for The Next Step.
I'll leave that title to Riley.
Daniel and West left it in the team's hands to come up
with brand-new choreography.
Right now, I'm working on the contemporary section and...
..I just...I can't think of it.
I'm really feeling the pressure.
-Hey, what's up?
How's the choreography coming along?
You still need that missing section, right?
I haven't thought of all of it yet.
This dance is so important and it has to be perfect, not just OK.
But an OK dance is better than no dance at all.
I'm tapped. My brain isn't working
and I cannot think of the choreography.
Yeah, your brain doesn't work often,
but have you considered asking another dancer to choreograph it?
-It's a good idea.
-That's a really good idea.
Henry's right. To get a fresh perspective,
I think that could really help.
So, we're going to go from the top one more time.
If I'm going to have someone else choreograph this section,
it has to be someone that I trust to do a great job.
I know the perfect person.
Heel, heel, out.
Jacquie gets me, she knows my style,
so I know her choreography will fit perfectly in this dance.
Jacquie, I was thinking about a section in the qualifier video
that I would love for you to choreograph.
I'm so excited that Noah asked me to choreograph part of the dance.
This is such an amazing opportunity for me.
I know you'll be great at this.
-Thank you so much.
-Of course, of course.
-I would love it to be a contemporary piece...
-..you know, something to contrast Richelle's pointe solo.
-I will not let you down.
-I know you won't let me down.
-I'll start working right now.
-Can't wait to see it.
Noah is such an amazing choreographer, and the fact
that he asked me to choreograph a part for the music video,
I really want to impress him.
I believe in Jacquie, and I know she will kill this.
I'm breaking in my pointe shoes so they're ready for my solo.
They have to be perfect.
The stakes are definitely high right now.
I've had some problems with my hip, but the doctor said that
I have a 50% chance that it won't get worse, so I'm going to risk it.
I know that Richelle has a really bad injury.
I'm not telling Michelle and Emily, because she's my friend
and I promised her that I wouldn't tell them.
I understand that she wants to dance in the qualifying video, but if she
goes through with this, it could be the end of her career.
# We are gonna show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're gonna tear the roof off this place
# Stand up! #
I don't know what to do.
I want to keep Richelle's secret, but if she dances on her hip,
she's risking permanent injury.
Hey, have you picked up your costumes yet?
Heather is the most level-headed person I know.
I think out of everyone, she could give me the best advice.
Hypothetically, if a friend told you that they were injured,
would you tell Michelle and Emily?
-But if I tell them, they could get kicked off
the qualifying video. But if they dance in the video,
then they could get really hurt.
Lola, you have to do the right thing.
Heather is right, I should tell the truth.
But I really can't betray my friend.
You know what? I need to think about it some more.
I don't want to tell Michelle and Emily.
I promised Richelle that I wouldn't,
but I don't know what I'm going to do.
Wait, is Lola the one that's injured?
I have to tell Michelle.
I'm not going to let Lola ruin her dance career over a regionals video.
# I'm falling behind
# I'm falling, falling behind
# I'm falling, falling behind. #
Hey, Uncle Tony, it's Ozzy. How are you doing?
The entire team is counting on me for the video shoot location,
so I'm just making sure my uncle's theatre is ready for the weekend.
Awesome! So, I guess I'll see you Sunday.
Ozzy, you do know we're shooting on Saturday, right?
We need to submit the video by Sunday.
Yeah, yeah, no problem.
-OK. I thought you'd made a huge mistake.
Oops, I've made a huge mistake.
Hey, Uncle Tony...
..did I say Sunday, cos I meant Saturday?
What do you mean it's impossible?
Who gets married on a Saturday?
All right, listen, Uncle Tony,
do you have a place for us to shoot the video on Saturday
for four hours?
Come on, please?
There's no place to shoot the qualifier video
and it's all my fault.
My hip is still really bothering me,
but I've got to keep breaking in my pointe shoes.
Where did these come from?
I had no idea that he felt this way.
I always admired Elliott, and...
..I guess he admired me, too.
# Yeah, I'm a saviour
-# Talk of the town
-# Of the town
# My bad behaviour
# I know it's all they care about
# Yeah, call my name. #
One, two and three, four, five.
We've been working countless hours on this dance.
I've added textures, I've added hits.
I think Noah will really like it.
-Guys, it's looking amazing, but we have to perfect it so...
-..one more time, OK?
Five, six, seven, eight.
One, two and three, four.
I walk into Studio A and this is not the choreo I had in mind.
It's actually nothing like what I asked for.
One, two, three, four, five, six, pose.
-You guys, it's looking so great.
Hey, that was a nice hip-hop routine.
Yeah, I know, the music, I just listened to it a lot
and hip-hop just went better with it.
I'm very frustrated right now
because I asked Jacquie to give me a contemporary section and she didn't.
She gave me a hip-hop routine.
I told you I wouldn't let you down.
-We'll practise it even more and have it perfect, I promise.
Ready? Are you guys ready to do it from the top?
We don't have time for this.
If this video is going to work, it needs to be perfect.
As dance captain, Jacquie's choreography
is not what I asked for.
As Jacquie's boyfriend...
..I don't know how to tell her.
Hey. You wanted to see me?
Yeah, take a seat.
Oh, this is serious.
Listen, I know about the injury.
Heather told me that you're hurt.
And if that's the case, then you're not dancing in this qualifier video.
No, no, there's been a mix-up.
Lola, it's not happening.
I'm not the one that's hurt.
Then who is?
I have to protect my best friend.
I promised her that I wouldn't tell Michelle.
So, I'm not going to.
Heather told you that I was hurt?
It's way too much to risk
and, until you're fully recovered,
I have to pull you from all the dances,
including the qualifier video.
My decision is final.
This is not fair.
I was just trying to cover for my best friend.
Everything that I've worked for, it's gone now...
..all because of a lie.
Hey! I just had a great rehearsal in these shoes.
They're perfectly broken in, actually.
I got kicked off the dance.
They think I'm the one that's injured,
so it's time for you to fess up.
..why don't you just go to the doctor
and get a clean bill of health?
That way, Michelle and Emily can't kick you off the video.
You want me to keep lying?
No, no, I don't want you to keep lying.
I'm just asking a friend for a favour.
I mean, you are my friend, right?
Richelle is being so selfish right now.
I would never do this to her.
Richelle, you're hurt, you can't even walk.
Do you realise that you not fessing up
is causing people to get kicked off the dance?
This is starting to get out of control.
You are way overreacting, Lola.
I cannot believe she's not going to come clean.
What am I supposed to do now? I'm going to get kicked off the video.
I can't believe a friend would do this to me.
My uncle won't budge and I can't find another venue.
We're not going to be able to shoot the qualifier video.
This is the worst thing that could happen.
Ozzy, are you OK?
OK, clearly not.
Man, you can tell me what's on your mind.
I made a huge mistake.
I booked the venue on the wrong day and now the venue's gone.
The venue...for our video?
-You're telling me you mis-booked that?
I can't believe Ozzy.
I can't believe this is happening.
How do you possibly make a mistake that huge?
Do you understand we need that venue?
-That was the only venue we had!
I can't believe you.
I messed up. Sunday, Saturday...
Kingston's right, I let the team down.
I really messed up.
I want to fix this, I just...I don't how, like...
I don't know what to tell you.
Ozzy has a good heart and I don't want everyone to be mad at him,
so I want to help him out.
That's what best friends do.
There's definitely a way.
And if you're willing to, I'm willing to put in the work too.
All right, man.
I hope this works.
The dancers are on break, so this is my chance to tell Jacquie
that she needs to change the choreography.
I'm going to have to just go and tell her
and hope everything goes OK.
OK, I don't know how to say this...
..but the choreography you did was good.
It's actually amazing.
Yeah. So, it's not really what I was looking for.
I really wanted a contemporary section.
I know you wanted contemporary, but if you listen to the music,
the section has to be hip-hop.
The music in this section
is hard-hitting, so it only makes sense to put hip-hop moves
with a hard-hitting section.
But, like I said, it really needs contemporary,
it needs to contrast from Richelle's pointe solo.
I see the whole picture for this dance
and Jacquie doesn't.
Well, if you wanted something so specific,
then you should have done it yourself.
This isn't anything personal.
I asked you to do something, but you didn't do it.
I did what the dance needs.
OK, look, I'm just going to do it myself.
Well, everyone's here, so let's learn your new choreography.
I know changing the choreography is a little bitter,
but, I mean, the way she's acting, it's not right.
Guys, the choreography you did with Jacquie is fine,
but I'm going to be re-choreographing it.
So, why don't you come to the centre?
This is so awkward.
Noah's actually redoing my dance.
My choreography was perfectly fine.
Starts walking forward. We'll go, like, one, two, and three, hit four,
five and six,
then we can push seven and eight.
-Push it through.
-And really stomp that.
Um, I don't think it needs a stomp.
It's contemporary, so let's just flow through it.
I'm trying to put my hip-hop in the dance because
I know this is what's going to get us to regionals.
Is that like...? Or here...?
-Yeah, we'll keep it here.
-And it's with fist, too.
-Fist with that, too.
-There's no fist there. No fist there.
This dance is super important for A-Troupe.
With them fighting all the time,
I don't think we're going to get anything done.
That section right there flows perfectly.
We're not prima ballerinas here.
Yeah, but we're in a contemporary section, which is why I plied in
-and kind of opened from there.
I'm so embarrassed right now.
I can't believe he's doing this.
Go one. I think it's very unprofessional of Jacquie,
and she's pulling this in front of all the dancers?
It's not cool.
-You can push through there.
-Well, since you want it so contemporary...
Jacquie? Really? Are you going to do this in front of everybody here?
-We're not doing hip-hop in this section,
it needs contemporary. OK? Cool?
This is tense right now.
You know what? I think we should just take a break.
I can't believe Noah.
I've never had a boyfriend treat me like this.
I can't even look at him.
This is the worst fight Jacquie and I have ever had.
But I had to do what's best for the qualifier video,
not for our relationship.
-So, you're good to dance?
The doctor said I'm good.
I'm giving Michelle a doctor's note
to let her know that I'm really not hurt.
Hopefully she'll let me dance in the video again.
So then, what was this all about? Why did Heather say you were hurt?
It was just a misunderstanding.
Well, I'm glad everything's OK,
-but if something was wrong, you would tell me, right?
Richelle has put me in an impossible position.
Now I'm lying to Michelle again.
I don't know what to do any more.
What was going on in there?
I got a doctor's note.
That's great. That's awesome news.
Then we can both dance in the video.
No, that's not great news.
-I could have spent all day practising my part of the dance,
but instead I wasted precious rehearsal time
getting that stupid note so I could cover for you.
But everything just worked out fine.
Richelle is only thinking about herself.
It's just ridiculous.
Richelle, if you insist on dancing, we can't be friends any more.
I can't believe Lola is threatening our friendship over this.
Maybe Lola's not the friend that I thought she was.
Yeah. For sure.
Kingston's talking to the owner of another theatre
to see if we can shoot there Saturday. I really hope he says yes.
I got the venue!
Kingston saved the day and the team.
I still need to tell you something though, so take a seat.
I shot a video here for a website once
and the owner isn't using it right now, so we can shoot there.
-I've got to let you know, it's not as nice as the other one.
I'm not going to lie, this place is a dump.
It's kind of old. Abandoned, actually.
It's pretty run down. It's really dirty.
Dusty, smelly, mouldy.
I don't like it.
You know, it might even be haunted.
Yo, free ghosts?
When Kingston is describing this venue, it sounds fantastic.
Bro, I'm in 100%.
You know what? This is actually perfect.
I think it's even better than the other venue.
-I mean, ghosts?
This venue is going to take the qualifier video
to a whole new level.
I'm just in the studio right now and just freestyling.
I just need to get all my emotions out.
# I'm on a bird on a thin wire
# Walking on the coals of a bonfire
# Voices of a navy blue sky choir
# Calling out my name. #
I feel so hurt right now.
Noah hasn't apologised to me, even though he completely embarrassed me
and I don't know if I can forget it.
# You know our story's never ending
# We rise, we're constantly ascending
# Up above it all
# Everything seems so small... #
Honestly, I don't really want to see Noah right now.
I don't want to talk to Noah ever again.
Sorry, I didn't realise someone would be in here.
Actually, I was leaving.
I don't know how to deal with this situation.
All I know is that we're running out of time before we shoot the video.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
# I'm taking off I'm hearing what you say
# No aerial boundaries are in my way
# Burning brighter than the middle of a flame
# You know you can't stop me now
# Did the work and it all paid off
# Started with a little now I got a lot... #
It was a mistake to mix dance with my relationship, but we have to work
together for the team.
I just hope she can just forget about it and move on.
# Lay it on the line
# Spread your wings and fly. #
I never should have asked Jacquie to choreograph.
This is all my fault.
I tried to get through to Richelle, but she won't listen to me.
I can't rat her out to Michelle and Emily,
but I also can't let her dance.
If Richelle were to get seriously hurt,
it would be on my shoulders.
I'm saving Richelle from herself.
I'm snapping the shank in Richelle's ballet shoe.
The shank is the whole support
and with no shank she won't be able to dance.
Sabotaging her pointe shoe is probably the worst thing
that a dancer could do.
But sometimes, in order to do the right thing,
you have to do a bad thing.
# And if we must battle forever
# We swear that we never surrender
# And when we're on top of the world
# We're gonna take the power and we'll never give it back
# You know what it takes just to conquer?
# We fail but we shall never falter
# The pain and the pride and the glory
# Gonna take the power and we'll never give it back
# We're never divided Forever united. #
Lola and Richelle's friendship is threatened when Lola tries to keep Richelle from making the biggest mistake of her life. Noah's role as dance captain puts him at odds with Jacquie and puts pressure on their relationship. Ozzy is terrified he has ruined the team's shot at regionals.
