The One With Stephanie's Dancing...
25 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really love this episode. I love seeing all of the early '90s dancing and it just makes me nostalgic for that time, even though I wasn't even born yet.

In this episode, Stephanie begs Danny to let her take a more intense dance program, as she is very talented and loves dancing. Danny allows her to, but only if she keeps up with her other responsibilities. And mainly because he wants Stephanie's dreams to come true, as his high jumping dreams didn't. Stephanie loves it at first, but then grows tired. And at the big recital, she messes up on purpose, so she won't be accepted to a Summer Dance Academy. Meanwhile, Becky tricks Jesse into coming to her baby shower and Michelle gives into telling Jesse a secret when he bribes her with ice cream.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
