However, after a series of mishaps, Anne comes to realize that looking after a dog full-time is a lot of work. She is happy when Peg Bowen comes to claim her lost dog.

The girls are eager to meet him, especially since he knows how to dance hip hop, but they definitely do not want him as a ballet partner - he's not a ballet dancer. It's not until Angelina is reluctantly paired up with AZ that she learns you can't judge a book by its cover. Not only does he know hip hop, but AZ is pretty great at ballet too!
