Recap / Kids Incorporated S 1 E 21 Dance Palace

Go To

This episode contains what's promoted as the first annual dance competition at the P*lace, with Kids Incorporated hosting and performing. As will be seen below, there isn't much in terms of plot here.

We open up with a performance of "(Love is Like a) Heat Wave"; upon which Riley - serving as the emcee - goes over the rules before turning it over for the first contestant, Carla Martin, who dances to an instrumental version of "Footloose" - with Mickey & Gloria joining in towards the end. Next is a duo of contestants (one of whom is named Garrett Young) dancing to an instrumental of "Freak-A-Zoid" before the kids take the mic for a cover of "Billie Jean".


Following that song, we learn of the grand prize being a Singing Machine karaoke player before our second duo (Tiffany Brady and Danielle Vanderberg) dances to "Maniac" before the dance competition ends with a kid calling himself "The Little Wizard"), who dances to "There's No Stopping Us". The band takes a vote, and (after Stacy whispers the result to Riley); Gloria announces that Tiffany and Danielle were the winners, setting up closing song "Far From Over".
