Jacquie, Henry, Kingston, Paige, Noah, Piper and Amy and talking about the new A-Troupe when Miss Kate comes in with an announcement that there isn’t now going to be two groups. Amy says that is not a good idea as last year it ended is disaster. Miss Kate says that A-Troupe will only be competing at regionals so far, but she is trying to make them allow the teams be 16 dancers, 12 mains and 4 alternates. Miss Kate says there will be A-Troupe and Acro Nation. A-Troupe is for the all round dancers and Acro Nation is the one that works on hip-hop and acro. A-Troupe will be lead by me for now and Acro Nation will be lead by Thalia and Eldon. Henry asks where Michelle and Emily are. Miss Kate replies with that they let Richelle dance even though they knew she was injured so they were disposed of. Paige says in talking heads that this isn’t fair. I have know Michelle for ages and she has never done anything like this nor has Emily. Something is very fishy. Miss Kate says that Daniel and West also knew about the injury and they have been kicked out as well. Kingston asks who is the new head choreographer. Miss Kate says Giselle. Paige runs up to her and gives her a massive hug. Giselle says it is nice to be back with Paige her best friend.
