Being a professional dancer means your schedule often revolves around other people's schedules and last minute auditions just goes with the territory. After a while, it is possible that the hectic audition and rehearsal schedule will start stunt your social life, but, that's a Dancelife. No one can testify to this more than Celestina, who has been having a difficult time juggling work and her boyfriend Todd.
When a last-minute audition for an Ashlee Simpson concert in Las Vegas surfaces, everyone flocks to Millennium for a chance at the job. Meeting up with Jersey before the audition, Celestina shares some of her recent relationship woes. Jersey comes up with a quick fix to Celestina's problem and invites her and Todd to the Carnival dancer's showcase she'll be performing in at The Key Club.
During the audition Celestina and Jersey both make it through the cuts to the final group of dancers. Ashlee's choreographer Teresa videotapes the final parts for Ashlee to watch. Later, while reviewing the audition tape, Ashlee says she is particularly impressed with Jersey and Celestina. While on her way to rehearsal at Carnival, Jersey gets a call from he agent informing her that she's been booked for Ashlee Simpson's Vegas show.
Meanwhile things are still looking bleak for Celestina's love life, and its beginning to get her down. When she tries to make plans with Todd after one of her rehearsals is canceled, he tells her he's already made other plans, and Celestina realizes she is alone at Millennium, with no one to console her.
Later, Celestina finally get's to spend sometime with Todd. Over dinner she begins to tell him about Jersey's invitation to the Carnival performances. Not being a dancer, Todd is skeptical, saying he would rather go to a basketball game, however he will try to keep an open mind. In the middle of their meal together, Celestina receives a phone call from her agent informing her that she has also been booked for the Ashlee Simpson concert. While that would normally be good news, in order for Celestina to accept the job, she is going to have to cancel a weekend trip to San Diego with Todd. While he says he understands why it's important for her to cancel, he comes across as very disappointed.
While she's packing the next day, Todd begins to tell Celestina that he's upset that they haven't been spending enough time together. She tries to explain to him that her schedule will always be determined by the dance industry, and that she cares deeply for her career, but also for him.
That weekend Celestina and Jersey arrive at the rehearsals for the Ashlee concert together. Ashlee is there to greet them personally and take them through the rehearsals for her song "L.O.V.E."
When the girls get back to L.A., Jersey heads straight from the airport to rehearsal at Carnival. Midway through, the choreographer Flex pulls Jersey to the side because he's concerned about her not being able to keep up. Jersey tells him that she has a lot on her mind, but that she will not let her personal problems affect her performance.
While Jersey is trying to get herself together, Nolan and Blake are also preparing their own performances at Carnival. When Blake's group takes a break from practicing, he sticks his head into Nolan's studio to eyeball the competition. After a slight confrontation between him and Nolan, Blake reports back to his group that they have nothing to worry about because, in Blake's opinion, Nolan's group is no where near as good.
Todd surprises Celestina when she gets back to L.A. by purchasing the tickets to the Carnival performances at the Key Club. At the show, all three groups blow the audience away with their distinct performance style, creating a positive buzz backstage. As Celestina and Todd make their way home from the club, she says that their next date should be over a nice romantic dinner, Todd jokes that they don't have romantic dinners at Lakers' games.
