Riley is one of the best dancers at Silver Shoes. Does this mean she will be a great teacher too? Riley has sprained her ankle playing basketball and has to miss three weeks of dancing! Sitting at home on the couch is difficult for active Riley and she decides to help out at Silver Shoes. Excitingly, Miss Caroline makes Riley her personal assistant. But is she getting carried away with her new-found role and being too bossy to her friends? And will Riley's impatience to get back out on the dance floor and master her new lyrical routine for the upcoming exam make her injury even worse?
