Zack and Cody can't believe that the hit television show Go Dance USA is holding a dance contest -- right at the Tipton Hotel! Their friend Max, who has the coolest moves of anyone at school, has always wanted to be on the show. Then Max asks Zack to be her partner, and Cody's feelings are hurt. He wonders why Zack is better at everything. But when Zack gets injured, it's up to Cody to bust a move with Max.
Will the new dance partners win the competition? Or is Cody doomed to be second to Zack forever?
