Previously on The Next Step...
In hockey, I wasn't going to make it to the NHL.
But in dance, I may make it on The Next Step.
I would like to welcome Josh as the tenth member of our team.
This is where we belong.
I can't believe you haven't told your mom.
If she finds out that I'm not in A troupe,
she's going to lose her mind.
I just want to show everyone, like, what I've got, like,
all my moves and stuff like that.
-Can we focus now, please?
-This kid is a J-Trouper.
Three, four, nice, nice.
See, that's the important thing about dance,
is you've always got to have chemistry.
I feel like I have so much chemistry with Noah, it's actually real.
It's there. It's fully there.
OK, I have some really exciting news.
I have decided that it is time for us to enter our first competition.
It is really important that you understand the kind of pressure
you'll be under at regionals.
And the only way to truly understand it is to compete.
So our first competition will be a duet.
I'm still new here.
I have no idea who Emily's going to choose.
I hope it's me. But I don't know.
This duet would be the perfect way to spend more time with Jacquie.
And I wouldn't be breaking any bro code with Henry.
So, who'd you pick?
I've decided on Noah
When they call Noah's name, I instantly hope
that I'm the next name called.
Not only would it be great to hang out with Noah,
but it would be my first competition with The Next Step.
I could not be more excited when I'm chosen for the duet.
I think Noah and I will dance amazing.
I think we're two of the strongest dancers on the team and I definitely
-think we can win.
-I'm a little disappointed.
I think it would have been...
..a good chance for me to bond with Jacquie if she got picked.
# We are gonna show the world
# Everything we're made of
# We're gonna tear the roof off this place
# Stand up! #
# Ticket to the top. #
Seven, eight. We go one, two...
Right now, I'm teaching the team some choreography for the regionals
routine. It's important that they learn this today because we're way
behind all the other studios.
Two and - so you do it twice.
I like Michelle's choreo. It's challenging.
Picking up this choreography would be really tricky
if it wasn't for all the extra classes that I'm taking.
Now I can actually keep up.
I'm going to step out for a little bit so that you guys can work on
your choreography. I'd better be impressed.
-See you guys in a bit.
-Let's do it. OK.
-I am so hyped for this piece.
You know, maybe I should add some of my own animation,
little popping steps. What do you think?
We'll see about that. OK.
Maybe if I keep practising, you know, I'll be better
than LaTroy here.
I love Ozzy and all, but he's got a pretty big ego.
Better than LaTroy. You're funny, man. You're funny.
I decided to prank Ozzy,
cos I feel like he's a little bit too much, you know?
So I feel like I just need to...
Break him down a bit.
-So, how's it going?
We've got some acro stuff, so we should probably get started.
-Actually, before we get started we need our good luck charm.
I'm not too sure what LaTroy is up to.
I think he's trying to prank Ozzy.
-Yeah. Come on, Amy.
-You know this.
-Yes. Good luck charm.
TNS tradition, yeah.
-I've actually heard of that tradition before.
I see what LaTroy's doing.
And I want in.
Emily, she has this lucky bronze ballet slipper that she won at this
competition one time.
You know, it's in her desk drawer. You should go and get that.
There's no way I'm sneaking into Emily's office for anything.
And, honestly, you're the lightest on your feet.
-You'll sneak past and nobody will ever see you coming.
They're obviously not going to let me off the hook until I go look for
-Man, do it, come on.
All right. Let's go. Let's go. Let's go, let's go, let's go.
You got this!
Oh, my goodness. I can't believe you...
Ozzy has absolutely no idea that I'm pranking him.
I'm a prank master.
Right now, we're working on the duet.
The concept of the dance is a black widow spider
slowly seducing its prey until she finally catches him.
I think, with a couple more rehearsals, we'll be good to go.
# Can't find the highs, only the lows
# You're paralysed, lost all control
# Bury the pain, nowhere to go
# We're just looking for home. #
The routine is really, really good.
It's just there's... Something missing.
I don't know what it is.
Actually, I do know what it is. It's our chemistry.
There's something about Richelle, and she...
She... We can't make eye contact.
I've been dancing with Noah since J-Troupe,
pretty much since I first came to the studio.
So we're strong dancers and we complement each other's strengths
-How do you feel about it?
-I feel great.
I think with a couple more rehearsals, it'll be clean,
tight and ready to go.
-How do you feel about it?
-Yeah, I feel good.
It feels great.
I believe the most important thing in a duet is the chemistry.
And Richelle and I, we don't have it.
Now, if Jacquie were in Richelle's spot,
chemistry would not be an issue.
Guys... Hey, guys.
He's been gone a while.
Yeah. Yeah, he has been.
I'm a little worried when Ozzy doesn't come back.
It's been a long time.
He'll be fine, man. Don't worry about it, like...
No, man, what if, what if Emily caught him?
Dude, you're overreacting. That's not, that's not happening right now.
-Someone text him.
I don't have to text anybody because he's right here.
I am so glad to see Ozzy back in one piece.
If Emily caught him, there'd be big consequences.
-..where's the slipper at?
-Well, I didn't find the slipper,
but I did find a registration form.
Well, the form is for a dance competition,
for dances from around the world.
-What's this competition called?
-Does Michelle know about this?
Guys, guys, guys, don't worry about that stuff.
The best part is we each get 1,000 if we win.
-Legit, a thousand?
1,000. I'm actually pretty excited,
because we can all use a thousand bucks each.
If I had 1000, the mall would not know what hit it.
-I think we're in.
I got the perfect dance in mind. But the competition is this weekend.
Bro, lead the way. Lead the way.
1,000 coming my way.
I can feel it.
You da man, Ozzy. You da man.
-Can I join?
-Yeah, of course, as long as you show me something.
I'll show you something.
I was just practising alone until Zara showed up.
I have a lot of time to kill because
my dad took my brother to his hockey game.
We're working on our moves so when the next competition
comes around, Emily will think of us.
-That's cute. That's cute.
I just came from B-Troupe.
And I don't really know the other A-Troupers quite yet.
It's fun spending time trading moves with Josh.
Do you know where the nearest emergency exit is?
-Because I'm about to set this place on fire.
All right, for sure. Let's jam, then.
Bring it on, Zara.
I spend a lot of extra time at the studio,
waiting for my brother's hockey to finish.
Adam playing hockey definitely takes
a lot of time out of my parents' lives.
They're obviously invested in him a lot.
But it affects me a lot too.
I guess the only benefit is it gives me time to practise my dance.
Josh is doing so well in this battle.
He's definitely bringing it.
I got to bring my A game too.
-That was really fun.
-Oh, my gosh.
-I didn't know you were that good.
You too. You were amazing.
I know, we should do this again sometime, for sure.
-Yeah. We would make an awesome duet.
-Oh, we make the best duet.
Zara and I would have killed it if Emily had picked us for the duet
She's an amazing dancer.
I love having her around.
I'll have your watermelon in a minute.
Hey, Emily. I'm a little concerned about the duet.
Why? Are you and Richelle having problems with choreo?
No, no, no. We actually have some really good choreo.
OK, so there's no problem, then.
But it's just... See, Richelle's dancing...
is...a little emotionally stiff.
And, you know, duets are all about chemistry.
For example, if it were with Jacquie and I, our chemistry would...
Oh, chemistry, yeah.
Noah wants to switch Richelle for Jacquie?
I know what this is about.
I'm not really here to make decisions based on
-who you have a crush on, Noah.
I don't have a crush on Jacquie.
Yeah, OK. Look, Richelle is a technically amazing dancer.
Even better than you in some cases.
A good dancer would be able to make this duet work, right?
Yeah. You're right. I apologise for bothering you.
Emily is wrong.
This duet could be so much stronger if I could be with Jacquie.
I don't know what I'm going to do.
All right, so I'm going to be teaching you a Litvanian
I was born in Litvania and the dance is part of the culture.
I've actually never heard of Litvania before.
-It's in Eastern Europe.
And it's one of the smaller countries, so maybe that's why.
All right, so one main focus of the dance is the knees.
the knees are considered the most beautiful part of the body.
I got beautiful knees.
And I'm ready to show them off.
You can either, like, go faster.
You can take it slow.
You can go, like, doubles, or you can go singles.
I think I'm getting this.
I'm learning a lot about Litvania.
There's so many interesting things that I didn't know about it.
These guys are buying that this dance is a real thing.
In Litvania, the ostrich is the king of the birds.
And in this dance, the neck is used to represent the ostrich.
So we're going to lengthen and then we're going to add our neck
going back and forth with the length.
Ozzy's pulling out some really weird moves from his home country.
It's got to do a lot with the knees and the neck.
I'm a little suspicious about this Litvanian thing.
-OK, Henry, Henry...
-You know what, Oz?
You know what? Not to be disrespectful or anything,
but I think this just seems a little bit, you know, whack.
OK. The truth is there's no Litvania.
And there's no dances of the world competition either.
I'm just trying to get back at these guys for pranking me.
OK, LaTroy, I'm going to be straight up.
I do feel disrespected.
That's kind of like disrespecting my culture and my hometown.
You're right, I'm sorry, your sanctuary, your place...
It's all good, don't worry.
-Let me see the knees.
-Let me see the knees.
Yeah, there it is. There it is. Let me see. Kingston, knees.
Sorry. I don't want to make fun of anyone else's culture.
I'm just going with it.
These guys think they can prank me.
But little do they know I always get the last laugh.
You think the rehearsal's been going well and stuff?
-Yeah, it's going good.
-Yeah? How's the duet?
Right now I'm in Neutral Grounds, hanging out with Jacquie,
and we're just talking about the duet that I have with Richelle.
I still wish there was a way that Jacquie could be my duet partner.
I wonder if she feels the same.
Emily laid into me a little bit, but it's all good.
-Why would she do that?
I had asked Emily to change my duet partner to somebody who I have more
chemistry with, but she said no.
Would this somebody that you have more chemistry with...
Well...what would you think if that were true?
That would be pretty sweet.
But stupid. I'm really flattered
that he would want to change the duet to be with me,
but he's danced with Richelle so many times.
He can't sabotage the duet.
You know, there are other ways you can hang out with me.
Like going to grab a bite after rehearsal tonight?
-That sounds great.
-Great, well, I'll see you tonight.
-I know I'm breaking the bro code,
but I'm really excited to be able
to spend some time with Jacquie tonight.
So it's like...
Yeah? And then after, you can, like...
Oh, yeah, feel it. Roll the neck.
Arch the back. I still can't believe
these guys are buying that this dance
is a real thing. They don't even know that I'm pranking them.
I'm trying to make these guys look as ridiculous as possible.
And it's working.
-Have a good time.
I'm not 100% sure if this dance is going to win us 1,000.
I think the Litvanian traditional dance is very unique.
I'm loving it.
I'm having a lot of fun dancing with these guys.
It feels like home.
Amy Abigail, what are you doing?
Lying to my mom about being on A-Troupe
is the worst thing I've ever done.
And now she knows.
This is so bad.
I'm so disappointed in every single one of you.
You just embarrassed the studio in front of Amy's mother.
Now I have to go deal with that.
You guys were dancing like chickens.
I feel like it's my fault, you know,
cos if I didn't prank Ozzy in the first place, you know,
none of this would have happened.
I left you guys with such an important routine to work on
and you blew it!
We're in a lot of trouble. And when I say a lot, I mean deep.
You might be here all night, but I really don't care.
I just wanted to have a little fun with these guys.
I didn't think that it would end like this.
I feel a lot better going into this rehearsal
after talking with Jacquie.
She really opened my mind.
I'm going to make the most of this duet with Richelle.
-I had a little talk with Emily.
Don't you think I know that I have a hard time connecting with people,
Noah? I don't need to hear it from Emily.
You know, if we had a problem, why don't you just come to me?
Richelle, I'm so sorry.
I, I just thought the chemistry between us...
If the chemistry was bad before,
I can't wait to see what it's going to be like now that you tried
to take me off the dance.
I never meant to hurt Richelle.
I don't think she knows where I was coming from,
but I do feel horrible right now.
I am, I'm really sorry. I didn't mean to do that at all.
And why don't we just start rehearsing
-and forget about all of it?
-Yeah, let's start rehearsing.
And we're not leaving till it's flawless so you'd better not have
any plans. Cos we have to work on our chemistry, don't we?
From the top.
What are you doing? No phones in studio one.
From the top.
My phone's gone. And now I can't tell Jacquie
that I'm not going to make it tonight.
I'm supposed to be meeting Noah at Neutral Grounds after his rehearsal,
but he never came.
I've no idea why he would do that.
I can't believe Noah didn't show up.
He didn't even text me to tell me why he wasn't going to be here.
I thought I liked Noah,
but I definitely don't like the way he's treating me right now.
I just got a text from my dad,
and he's with my brother at his hockey game
and it's going into overtime,
meaning they're not going to be here for another hour.
Whoa - what are you doing here?
I'm...just about to be picked up, in like five minutes.
-How are you? What are you doing here?
-I forgot my textbook.
It's getting pretty late. Are you sure that you don't need a ride
-No, no, honestly.
Dad's going to be here soon so I'm right behind you.
-Are you sure he's coming?
-Yeah. Honestly. Positive.
-I'll see you tomorrow.
-Yeah, see you tomorrow.
I don't tell Zara what's going on because I don't want to involve
people at the studio in my family drama.
It just makes me mad.
My parents always think that what I do is less important than what my
little brother does. Hockey always comes before dance.
And it's really getting to me.
Please, please reconsider.
No, my mind is made up.
I am pulling Amy from the studio.
I can't even imagine the studio without Amy.
If I could rewind time,
I'd make sure that Amy wouldn't be getting kicked out of the studio.
She deserves to be here more than anyone else.
And you should be ashamed of yourself.
You manipulate these kids into coming here when they're actually
-dancing with real troupes.
-Mom, Mom, please...
-Stop it, Amy!
Maybe Gail's right. Maybe I have been stringing these dancers along.
I'm so disappointed in myself.
I've let everyone down.
She was dancing on A-Troupe.
And now she is wasting her time here?
What? I can promise you, this is going nowhere.
-And my daughter is not going nowhere.
Say goodbye to your friends, Amy.
why I wake up in the morning.
And dancing is, is what makes me really happy.
And, and not being able to do it any more makes me really upset,
because I love it so much.
-Amy, say goodbye to your friends!
