Dates & Dances is the first episode of Season 4.
Austin and Ally hire James and Violet as their new band members, but when they find out that James and Violet like each other, they set up a double date between the two. However, while on their date, James and Violet get into an argument, which makes band rehearsals difficult, so Austin and Ally try to get them back together.
Meanwhile, Trish and Dez get cast as backup dancers for Shiny Money, but Dez accidentally gives Shiny food poisoning, so they have to try to save the show.
In the end, James and Violet forgive each other, but refuse to continue dating, and Trish and Dez completely ruin the show and are fired.
