Titre original : Episode 26
With only twenty four hours before the dance finals, a mixture of nerves and excitement fills the chatroom. Having worked towards this day for the past six months the pressure is on, especially for Jackie. Forbidden to dance because of study commitments, this is the one opportunity she has to prove to her father that she can combine dancing and schoolwork. But she’s too scared to tell her father about the final because she believes he’ll refuse her permission to participate. Ally and Emma however come up with a plan. They manage to get both of Jackie’s parents to attend the final and watch their daughter perform a flawless routine with her two friends. Ally and Emma are barely able to contain their excitement but Jackie’s quickly dismayed when she sees her father leave the venue clearly upset. Knowing she has no alternative, Jackie has to summon up all her courage and confront her father and tell him the truth about what she’s been doing – hoping that he’ll understand and be sympathetic. But she knows that it will be an extremely difficult discussion and the outcome very uncertain. As well as this, all three girls now have to come to grips with the fact that the chatroom is about to close down and their ability to travel between each other’s homes and countries is going to be taken away forever. After six glorious, exciting and adventurous months, it’s a sad moment for them. At the same time, they can’t help but acknowledge that they’ve enjoyed a remarkable experience together – one which they’ll never, ever forget.
