Top Ten Favourite The Next Step Characters


The Top Ten

1 Riley

Riley is awesome, she's in all the seasons and is an amazing dancer! The thing is, in the series they never classified her as one of A-Troupe's best dancers, but she clearly was because she got through the challenge and all the A-Troupe auditions. Riley has such a great personality, she's funny, serious, happy and kind. I love how her sister is Emily, they're both such different people but get along so well with each other! And Jiley, they're so perfect! I love how they're not all about being lovey dovey but they really just care for each other and for some reason every time they hug it just seems so real! We love you Riley!

She is awesome she wants what is best for the team she is a really good dancer and I think she should deserve more like to be dance captain since she is a great team leader

She is such a good dancer and a good actor I love the next step so much and they dance so good

Riley is the best

2 Michelle

Michelle is the "nice" one. But I don't think she has to have everything.

I love Michelle through all the hate with Emily she still managed to become dance captain and also she deserves to have Eldon I got so annoyed when hunter and Emily ruined that how was she an alternate she's one of the best dancers on the team but then again I understand because she was very emotional about her parents divorce

Michelle is so nice and the best dancer but has been through a lot, nobody's perfect.

Michelle is sooo pretty and a great friend to riley she fights for what she wants and she doesn't deserve her parents divorcing

3 West

Yeah he is super funny and cool but I don't know about him or Michelle because she had a hard life and is the best female and west is the best male simple as that. West has a lot of funny parts which makes him enjoyable and hey me and my friend tried looking at people and pretending what they were saying! It was honestly fun

West is one of those characters that people have to laugh at cause he's funny, exciting and crazy every time you see him on this show

West is a great and awesome dancer plus he is like the king of hip hop and he's funny chill hilarious and that

Cool guy
Best moves

4 James

James is funny I guess. But he just kissed beth infront of Riley his girlfriend. So he doesn't have any idea what he's gonna do.

I love you james

You are a good dancer

Well first of all James is a part of the original cast which is way better then the cast after season 3. He is really funny and kind at the same time. I just wish he never broke up with Riley. (Sorry for spoiling for anyone who hasn’t seen it)

5 Giselle

Giselle is incredible and an amazing dancer! She tried so hard and she got to be a dance captain for Internationals. She is a bubbly person and super outgoing! I loved her mostly in season 1 and 2. I love how in the end of season 1, she got to be back as an A-Troupe dancer! She is the best character ever!

Giselle is awesome and my favourite. She's a great dancer and her flexibility is insane.

Giselle is my favourite. And she is always bubbly and excited to see everyone. And every time I am sad I always think about her and dance I love you Giselle!

Giselle made the Next step win INYERNATIONALS as a DANCE CAPTAIN and Ma.Kate and Chris made a REALLY bad decision to kick her out of A-Troupe in the first season

6 Emily

Emily has made so much progress from the previous seasons and has grown to be inspiring and a true leader. She has learnt from her mistakes and proves to anyone in the world that they can do anything. Emily is amazing and has become a great studio head for the Next Step.

Emily is nice. I love her devious personality. Always causing trouble and being her is awesome. But drama in a troupe is really stating to bubble up.

Emily is much feistier than he rest of the characters and more interesting too. Everyone says I'm most like Emily which I take as a total compliment. I wasn't a fan when I first saw TNS but when I got older and understood the world better I saw how amazing she was as a character. We love you Em!

Actually amazing, has probably the most character development as the show goes on.

7 Amanda

Honestly, Amanda is the greatest. Well in my opinion.

You can really see, that she have developed so much. Not only as a dancer but as a human being pretty much.

It's amazing to see where time have brought her and how she acts in Season 3-4 compared to Season 1-2.
- Especially her current love-interest in Noah.
You had never expected her to "fall in love" in the series.

But that's what makes her unique above the other A-Troupe members.

In the series she had always have to prove herself, and it's great to see that she is strong enough to stick up for her friends etc. after everything she's been through.

Amanda is awesome. Even though she was evil she has changed and a great dancer

Wow she is really good at being a dance captain!

Michelle is dull
Emily is irritating
Chloe,Steph and Tiffany are irrelevant
Giselle is weird
Amanda is awesome

9 Noah

I love him in season 4

Noah is a phenomenal dancer and doesn't deserve to be in j troupe

He is cute and deservs NUMBER 1

Noah is really nice he knows what's best for him he is a great boyfriend and always put am and a or jacquie first and he is an amazing and dancet also is chemistry with briar briar and mules have so much chemisty

10 Eldon

Eldon was in love with Emily from over five years. Her started to date her and now he is dating Michelle, that's really stupid. But Hunter comes in to sort things out and now Eldon has to keep away from Michelle.

Eldon honestly is one of the most GENUINE characters on the next step. He's sweet, a bit kooky, the best dancer the next step has seen, and he's very funny and not to mention romantic. He is passionate and hardworking and DRIVEN to do what he wants, he never gives up, but he's still a total sucker for love.

Is the best I love him!

Eldon is the best dancer in the studio. I hate when people think that hunter is better. they had 3 dance battles. Hunter won the first time. Eldon won the other two. He is determined.

The Newcomers

? Gabi
? Gabi

The Contenders

11 Piper

I love Piper. Shes so sweet just like james

Piper is lovely and awesome like James

Good actor and dancer

12 Chloe

She is a really good dancer and she thinks about other people not just herself and she should come back in season 4 hopefully she does come back in season 4

She is a really good dancer and she is kind and helpful and is a outstanding dancer won of the best dancers

Chloe is an amazing ballet dancer and a lovely person. She deserves to be in the top ten.

Chloe has money issues but she is strong and got threw that she is better than richelle richelle is ugly and mean

She Is So Sexy

14 Chloe

Chloe is a great dancer. In the second series she has a lot of make up on. And Margie is creeping her out a lot.

A good dancer

Chloe is so nice and misunderstood

Go chloe raze the the roof

15 Tiffany

She is beautiful and nice. She is a good addition to the next step

Tiffany is a girl who funny and determined

Such a great hiphop dancer with strengths in other types of dances as well

Not to be mean but tiffiny is a bad dancer

16 Talia

She seems really nice and actually surprisingly a good dancer. Talia has a lot to bring for a troupe and she's in the natinals team for a reason

Yeah she is so good


17 Hunter

He's amazingly devious, and I totally respect that. He's fighting for Michelle and a good quality is if you have your mind set on something, don't let anyone get in your way

Hunter's a cutie

Your right

18 Jiley

I know this is not a character but it is awesome!

Great love them always

19 Ms.Kate

She's the caring and tough at the same time dance teacher. She cares about the team and is fair.

20 Jacquie

She is super pretty and her chemistry with Noah is unstoppable

She is nice

21 Sloane
22 Lola

No1 so pretty

She is far the prettiest she is amazing and also the best looking xx 👍🏻

23 Tess

She okay I guess. But what has she really got to bring to the show.

I don't like this one

24 Cierra

A nice person and good dancer

25 Amy

She is a poder house wow

26 Henry

The new west

27 Luke
28 Summer

Good dancer

29 Kate

Kate is a great owner of the studio. She is very very very supportive to all of the dancers.

30 Stephanie

Stephanie is a loyal friend to Emily, but maybe a bit too loyal. And when it comes to the final cut she's not in the natinals team. She Houghton that if she stuck up for Emily then Emily will stick up for her. But Stephanie didn't know the choreography cause she was at acting class. Stephanie wants to be a triple threat so acting and dancing can't mix together.

Stephanie is better than chris

31 Phoebe

I think she's nice and has lots of yoga training

Nice person

32 Max
33 Paul
34 Zara
35 Chris

Chris's dolphin tail is so funny. No one in the whole wide world can do that sound but hi. I think it is sooo funny.

36 Beth

Beth is so annoying. Her voice is annoying she laughs at everything and then she kissed James. What's wrong with her brain. Riley and James have even got a name Jiley. Beth and James don't work at all.

I hate beth she is so annoying. Riley and james were great until beth kissed james and then riley dumped james.jiley is a great name but jeth does not match at all.

37 Lucien

Lucien is horrible. He showed at Amanda at the mall infront of everyone.

I hated him when he tried to take down tns

I hate him

Yeah me to

38 Charlie

Charlie is a great dancer. But Charlie isn't really in a troupe he in b troupe so yeh!

39 Daniel

Daniel is the best dancer. He's so technically awesome

Daniel is technical and strong. Even though I don't like ballet I think he is epic at it. Even though before reginals he broke his ankle and couldn't perform. But this time he's up on the natinals team for good.

40 Cassie
41 LaTroy
42 Alfred

Alfie is so kind and so nice and a great friend!

43 Shantel
44 Margie
