The Next Step follows the lives of an elite group of dancers who train at The Next Step Studio. Season five brings about a lot of changes. As many dancers leave to pursue their goals and dreams, former dance captain Emily steps in to take control. But, her strict regime isn’t welcomed by everyone and the studio quickly divides into two: Emily’s classically trained dancers, and the self-trained/hip-hop crew led by veteran A-Trouper Michelle. In the end, only one team can make it to Regionals and it’s a full out battle between East vs. West.
