Casey makes the cut, along with her rival, Sadia (Romina D'Ugo). But so does 'crazylegs' Derek (Michael Seater), who enters the competition as a joke. Dressed in hockey pads, and calling himself 'D Vent,' he impresses judge Cindy (Debra Lynne McCabe) with a ridiculous dance that she calls "refreshing and original." Casey begs Derek to bow out, and accuses him of making a mockery of the art she has pursued all her life. Derek is about to yield until the beautiful Sadia asks him to be her dance partner for the next round. Derek thinks Sadia is ripe for romance, but she means business.
