Season openings


"After a major shock sends the studio reeling, season six of The Next Step finds the dancers scrambling to get back on the road to competition. For the studio, that means pulling out all the stops: a dance convention, a team-building escape room, and a much-needed in-studio prom. As A-Troupe gets ready for the dance competition of its life, new faces cause egos to clash, friendships to form, and romances to blossom. But while some of the dancers think it should be all for one and one for all, others declare that when it comes to winning… all bets are off. Can the dancers put aside their differences to bring home a victory? Competition just got a million times harder."[6]
