In Studio A, all the dancers from Region 7 that qualified for Regionals are in Studio A, preparing for the dance convention. Emily says about how little room there is for error. Amy is warming up with AcroNation, and confesses that she joined AcroNation because she wants to be a star dancer, something she is far from at The Next Step. Emily and Michelle open the convention, and reveal that Dytto will be hosting a workshop in Studio 1 later. Richelle, Jacquie and Summer start their routine for the opening number, where Henry and Kingston come in after.
