I really like it,

and I thought I was

going to do it...

Girl, did you even

go home today?

I think you've actually moved

out of my place and into here.

Does anyone need

a place to crash?


Let's do the first number.

Whoo. Thank you.


Oh, snap!


Four, five, six, seven, eight.

Now I didn't wanna say

but I'm the baddest...

Four, Five, six, seven, eight.

...You could try

but ain't no point

You'll never match it

Seven, eight, shoulders.

'Cause I be on my new

and it's incredible...


...Just so beyond that Fleek

I tweak it daily

Five, six, seven, eight.

Once in a lifetime

Tell me are you gettin' this?

Five, six, seven, eight.

You better act like

it's a privilege...


Come on, Alicia, focus!

It's okay,

don't worry.

First day is always hard.

Just keep going.

...Oh, snap

Is she serious?

Yeah, sexy.

...Is she a good girl

or is she devious?

They hooked on me

I got 'em freakin' out

Five, six, seven, eight.

Why everybody posted up

Five, six, seven, eight.


What she gonna do now?

Kick, kick, kick, kick.

...You never seen

nothing like this

So give it up

You'll never see it again

So hit me up

Oh, snap

All right.

Same time tomorrow.

Thank you, everyone.

Hey, Deb,

you got a minute?


It's a nice move.

I'm trying.

It's a snap.

I just wanted

to let you know

that I'm putting

a new solo together.

It's got your name

all over it.

Don't you dare tease me!


We'll see how you do.

No promises.

Now head home.

Even you need sleep, all right?


Hey! We're all going

to the diner.

Okay, I'll meet you there.

Go, go. I promise.

Oh, no, no, no, no,

don't even think about

trying to get a job there.

If you want another gig,

try Planet Hollywood.

The boys are way cuter.

Come on, girl.

Snuggle in.

We have to help

this young thing,

or she'll get trampled.

Thanks for today.

Oh, no worries.

We know how it feels.

Sounds like you're

a Vegas virgin.


I'm from Nebraska.

My parents don't even know

I'm here dancing.

They think I'm waitressing.

Oh, you go, girl.

And you got a part

in Rendez-Vous with us?

That's amazing!

How long have

you been in Vegas?

Just over a year.

A year

of way too many auditions,

and way too many "no's."

Oh, that's a word

you never hear from men.

Just from you, honey.


you have to push yourself

every single day,

because the reality is

there's always somebody

behind you,

hungry for your spot.

Oh, I'd never do that.

Oh, yes, you would,

and you better.

It's what drives us.

We are all chasing

the same dream.

To dance...

for life!

In the best show we can.

Yeah, baby!

Our routine is, we get up,

we rehearse,

we audition, we eat,

we audition,

we get hit on

at the mall,

then we audition again.

No, you have

to get used to,

"You're so beautiful,

but you're not right,"

or "Seriously, dude?

There's a ring on your finger."

"You're married."


Cry me a river.

You're a natural talent,

while we've all

studied for years

and can hardly keep up.


You b*tch.

Guess what?

Tonight, we're celebrating.


Okay, I'll bite.

What are we celebrating?

Kevin is giving me

a shot at the lead.

Oh, my God! Yes!


That's amazing.

I've got to prove

that I can do it.

Oh, honey,

you got this.

I'm starving.

Are you hungry?

Excuse me!

Kid's meal pancakes

for everyone here.

I'm paying.

Anything you need, just ask.


How come you're the one

with the big news,

but I'm the one

that couldn't sleep last night

because I am so excited for you?

Roxie, it's everything

I've ever wanted.

You're going

to nail it.

I know you are.

Plus, Kevin wouldn't

have asked you to do it

if he didn't think

you could.

He's going to

choreograph every move

with you in mind.

I just have

to stay focused.

That's the least

of your problems.

I don't have

any problems.


There you go.


Ah, maybe you can

lose focus.


Who's that? Wow.

Keep your clothes

on, sister.

His name is Jason Griffith,

but he goes by Blu.

He dances lead

in a Cirque show.

No way!

Went to Juilliard.

That makes him

way out of our league.

Your league, not mine.

He's a beautiful human being.

All right, everybody,

let's get started.

Come on, come on. Places.

All right, let's get to it.

We'll be taking it

from the first position.

Let's go.
