In the ‘Magic Shoes’ episode, Xyriel portrays the role of Bechay, a kid who doesn’t know how to dance. After her father died in an accident, Bechay tried on the shoes that she was supposed to give to her dad as a present when it suddenly fitted her feet and magically turned her into a great dancer. In order to help her mother in their financial problems, Bechay decided to use the shoes to win a dance contest. Can Bechay find enough confidence in herself to dance with her own feet when the magical shoes suddenly disappear?
Together with Xyriel and Slater in the episode are Susan Africa, Wowie de Guzman, Ciara Sotto, and Brenna Peñaflor. It is written by Arlene Tamayo and directed by Jon Villarin.
