Top Ten Favourite The Next Step Characters

The Top Ten
1 Michelle

Miss National Soloist! She is so loyal and kind and dedicated. She made a great dance captain and she went through so much hard things (Emily being mean to her, being an alternate for Internationals, and her parents divorce) and she was still a great character

Michelle is just so talented and she has been through so much but never gave up completely and stayed committed to A Troupe

While I am writing this I am watching the Michelle dance in s5 (the episode were at the end piper suggested to merge tns east with tns west.

She is so nice and she is a determined dancer she is so good at dancing, she is totally my favorite dancer.P.S. she is also the best looking in the group! Everyone should vote for her.She has a great heart and she inspires me!

2 Riley

"Riley is such an amazing character and despite how young she is she always puts the studio and others before herself and she shows that amazing kindness constantly through her 4 seasons. She has flaws as well but if anything they make her look even better because it makes her look that much more inspiring, when you see someone you love being amazing but knowing they do have flaws like yourself makes you want to push yourself to work just as hard as them. Riley is utterly amazing and her relationship with James is just a whole other thing I could write pages just on how much I love their relationship... but I don't have that time so I'm going to stick to Riley! She is also so brave I don't know many people who can stand up to their family in such a way that Riley did, she did what was right and looked after her sister afterwards and not in a way that felt like pity because lets face it no one likes pity. Riley takes my breath away in everything she does she is such a hard worker and ...more

Riley is awesome and very kind because she went through quite a lot with her sister, Emily, but still she didn't give up. She's like a hero.

In season 4 Riley... Wasn't the best studio, but she definitely wasn't the worst. I'll leave that title to Miss Angela. Kissing Alfie was bad, but in all fairness it was not her fault. Riley doesn't handle well under stress of being the studio head, and James was always their to calm her down and when he left she needed someone to help with the pressure: Alfie. But unknowingly to her Alfie liked her, and then she discovered new feeling, and ended up liking him. But no matter what she loves James more and she only liked Alfie because James wasn't there. Her heart found a replacement for James, but really she eventually realised that if James wasn't going to be there for her then she'd be there for him.

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!

3 West

West is a very likeable character I mean com on its West he's hailorous and I could not get enough of him. He has givin me a laugh along the way of the show. West is caring cind and relieavle and has the biggest heart out of all of them. West is very creative and is a Amazing dancer the way he moves with he's body is incredible I have never seen anything like it. I wish West was still part of THE NEXT STEP by the way congrats to riley by Melea

Funny, caring and dedicated West is by far one of the best characters. He helps TNS win Regionals, Nationals and Internationals and he is such a great asset to A-Troupe. I love his competitive drive and all of his friendships.

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 west west
is the
Best best best
he brings that vibe to the studio
he is honestly the reason why I continued to watch the show after seeing the first few episodes of it and It became one of one of my favourite shows!

4 James

James is really funny he is weried but in a good way he's realation ship with riley is really cute. James is a incredible dancer and its cool watching him do all of his flips and tricks. I think him eldon and wests little group is adorable they are the perfect match for eachother there like the three ameegos. I wish james was still part of THE NEXT STEP by the way congrats to Riley by Melea

The best boyfriend for Riley and one of the best characters on TNS... James! He is loyal, funny and SO chill. I love his rivalry with Alfie it makes the show more interesting and it shows that he isn't chill around everyone

Personally, James is the best character due to his loyalty to Riley when yes he kissed Beth, but it was accidental and he completed a whole list to ensure he would win Riley back. However, Riley started an affair with Alfie and James took her back easily without any challenges for her to complete. He is a fantastic dancer with his technical moves, and he's been accepted into all the auditions.

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

The queen of Acro... Giselle!
She is bubbly, dedicated, competitive and her heart is in the right place. I don't know why but I wish she could have a Next Step boyfriend. I love her friendship with West and also her friendship with Thalia.

I thought she was a queen at acro and a lovely person. Always tried her hardest, even when she got kicked out of the troupe. She's a fighter and a powerhouse.

1st of all she is SO beautiful I swear- she is so good at acro and she is actually one of my favourite characters, she helps the team so much

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!

6 Emily

She is a wonderful sister and has stayed strong even though Michelle has taken many things including her boyfriends, friends and dance captain away from her. The only reason why she is mean to Michelle is that she knows that Michelle is jealous of her. I know Michelle is jealous of her because she created TNS west because she did not like the feeling of being told what to do by Emily since before she and Emily were on the same level. The only reason why when Emily was the head she took of the dancers that don't do contemporary is that she knows that contemporary is liked more than other dance styles and didi did not want Kate to be mad with her by losing nationals, international(etc.).I feel like people like Michelle more because she's going through the most but really if you think about it Michelle just entered the studio and said is this where the auditions are being held. I mean everybody else worked so hard to get the chance to be in A troupe and she did nothing but be miss ...more

At first I didn't like Emily because she seemed selfish and mean but then as season 1 went on I started to warm up to her. She is actually a really good character. She just puts up a wall of selfishness and focus but behind that wall is a friendly, funny and dedicated girl

I honestly love Emily she is my favourite she is funny and she does anything for her team, and her sister. I like how she is so straight up. I also love that she has such a strong relationship with her friends and her sister Riley. I also like her fashion stile it really shows her and the character she is acting out. But overall she is defiantly my favourite. No hate on the other actors

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.

7 Amanda

I admit from season 1-right before Nationals I didn't like her one bit. But then she started to help TNS and I saw a better side of her. She is a bit misunderstood because of her history at elite. She was a great asset to the international team, even if she doesn't think so because she can't do Acro, so I don't think she should've been the alternate

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

Amanda as changed a lot but dose sh still like Lucian.

8 Noah

Honestly, he is the BEST dancer I have EVER seen. He flows through his movement sooo well and was a great dance captain (until Lily took that away). Noah is clearly the most, awesome, greatest, best, fabulous, amazing dancer in the WORLD!

Noah is such a great dancer and so caring, dedicated and loyal. Some people will disagree with me but I actually like Noah and Jacquie's relationship. He is in every season and he grows so much as a person.

Noah is the best character, hands down. He is an amazing dancer as well as a loyal friend who will always put others first.

He made an amazing dance captain. He kept team spirits up and put everyone before himself.

9 Richelle

Richelle is underrated in season 4 and is strongest in season 7. The best dance of hers was the one to president in Season 7, Episode 4

Competitive and loyal, Richelle is one of the best characters. I like how her and Jacquie are frenemies and I also thought that her and lola's friendship was so sweet. She was a great dance captain and is one of the best dancers on the show

Richelle is hands down the best dancer I have ever seen in my whole intier life I can not get enough of her. I mean do I even have to talk sbout her techneqe its inpeckible in a way I can not decribe. she is drop dead gorgeos and I think her realationship with elite was cute. Honestly I cind of wish her and ozzy would get together already I just think they would be cute toghether. I love how focus she is on dance and I hope THE NEXT STEP makes it to natonals and Richelle can be miss national soloist and hopefully win because she deserves it richelle is one of my favourite characters. By Melea.

I think most of the best female characters in the series are people whose names end in i_elle. Giselle, Richelle, and Michelle

10 Eldon

He is so awkward and goofy but at the same time he's funny, dedicated and caring. I like how Daniel and him go from friends to enemies I less than a season. I think he should've definitely won Mr National Soloist and Mr International Soloist.

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.

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.

So goofy and a little bonkers, but such a lovely heart and an amazing well rounded dancer.

The Contenders
11 Piper

Always did what was best for the team. I think she lacked a lot of confidence but I was so invested in watching her gain confidence and become a better dancer.

I do feel that Piper is completely underrated as a dancer just because she can't do a lot of acro. She always puts the team first and I would go as far to say that her turns are better than Richelle's.

Piper should be at the top! She is such an amazing character and my all-time favourite!

Piper is really nice and a great dancer even though she can't do Acro.

12 Chloe

I always thought she was so lovely and an amazing friend. She was dedicated and passionate when it came to dance and even took on a job for Ms Kate to help fund her dancing. She is so hard working.

Chloe is an amazing character, she has a beautiful dance style and has been through so much; Emily being nasty to her, her financial issues, everyone believing she stole the nationals money and the hard decision she had to make in season 3. And still after all the complications in her life she is just a wonderful and caring person. I love 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.

Chloe is such an amazing dancer but hasn't got enough money to pay for reginals and nationals so she needs a lot of help.

13 Ella

Ella pranks are so funny

14 Jacquie

Jacquie has great with Noah and she is an amazing dancer and she is also really pretty.

She is the best dancer and she is so pretty!

Jacquie is perfect and she is the most beautiful person eye right she also can dance extremely well

We both have the same name.

15 Jiley

" Jiley is sooo cute and I love how they grow themselves yet they are still as awesome and they never loose the spark of their reletionship even if they aren't dancing they are just truly amazing, and without the other one of them wouldn't be whole we saw that in season 2 and 4 when they both lost each other and they were devastated. JILEY FOREVER!"

Jiley is one of the cutest coupes I have ever seen in my entire life. I hope they never ever break up and if they do they get back toghether again. Honestly I wish I had a as good as an realation ship as they do. By Melea

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

Great love them always

16 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

So cute and sweet.

Hunter's a cutie

Hunter is really Charming, sweet and kind although at first he seemed a bit awkward

17 Lola

So pretty and compassionate. I know it wasn't right of her to break the shanks of Richelles ballet shoes, but I can see that she was doing it to save her from an injury and is really a kindhearted person.

Lola is a cind/warm hearted girl she is an amazing dancer with amazing techniqe. I think her and richelles realationship was soooooooooooo cute and I wish they were still best friends. Lola also has a bubbly fun personality which I also love. Lola also puts other people befour herself. I wish Lola stayed at THE NEXT STEP. I also wish that at the next step she became dance capiton. Lola is drop dead gorges and I am surprised that on the show they did not give Lola a boyfriend because I would love to see that. Lola is very loving I think even if you on perpose broke her leg she would still be nice to you and want to be your friend and that's just how nice she is. I hope one day fingers crossed that Lola comes back to THE NEXT STEP. Congrats Riley for the win but you will not be first place for long. By Melea

She is always wanting a second chance but that is a good quality to have

18 Summer

She is really nice

19 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

She's a good dancer

20 Amy

I personally think that Amy is completely overrated as a character. Sure, she's a decent dancer, but she was unbelievably annoying in seasons 5 and 6. I did used to love her, but ever since she started dating her personality has gone downhill and honestly she is now one of my least favourite characters

21 Henry

Henry is really funny but confusing.

I love henry. Full stop.

22 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.

She can be mean at times but she only does what she does because she doesn't want to upset Emily

23 Margie

The most mature little girl ever!

She is the best ever and so cute!

So adorable I love her

24 Tiffany

Tiffany is an e-girl and she one Reginals with a troupe. But then they have to go to natinals. Amanda comes in and tells them that the challenge is basically where people from other dance studios come in and try to get on the natinals team. Tiffany and Stephanie don't agree with that. But
Emily and Michelle decided that they should do the challenge because they will have the strongest team for nationals. Tiffany didn't make it and now she's in b troupe.

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

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

25 Cierra

Cierra is just so nice, she's ready to give you advise whenever you need she puts friends and family before herself and I really admire that

Cierra cares about dance, family and having fun. I like how she always helps anyone

She has the right character and if any one else played Cierra I wouldn't watch the show
