4 James

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.

His character is hilarious and makes me laugh all the time. His dancing is amazing and he has sooo much technique. Also him and Riley are so cute and I will ship them forever.

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)

Because his awesome

5 Giselle

She is so quirky and cool, and a good dancer.

She is tbe best
definitely not richelle she is the worst, she is a bully. Giselleis awesome, we love you elle

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

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

I love how fierce and diva-like, but also encouraging (when she dragged Stephanie to audition for A troupe again when she was not very confident). She is such an interesting character, I really like her!

Her moves are always on point, always percise, never to weak

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.

7 Amanda

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

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!

He is cute and deservs NUMBER 1

10 Eldon

Love Eldon!

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.

Is the best I love him!

She Is So Sexy

13 Chloe

Chleo has money issues

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.

15 Jacquie

So amazing best dancers ever
So good


She is super pretty and her chemistry with Noah is unstoppable

She is nice

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

Hunter's a cutie

Your right

17 Jiley

Great love them always

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

18 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


19 Amy

She is a poder house wow

20 Sloane
21 Henry

22 Lola

23 Summer

Summer is so sweet and an incredible dancer

Good dancer

24 Tess

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

I don't like this one

25 Cierra

A nice person and good dancer

26 Luke
27 Margie

She so cute!

28 Winnie
29 Kenzie

Go The Kenz!

30 Kate

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

31 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

32 Phoebe

Nice person

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

33 Max
34 LaTroy
35 Paul
36 Ms.Kate

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

37 Zara
38 Lily


39 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.

40 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.

41 Lucien

I hated him when he tried to take down tns

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

I hate him

Yeah me to

42 Charlie

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

43 Daniel

He was good in Season 1 and 5 but in season 3 (BARF) Season 3 = Trash

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.

44 Cassie
45 Alfred

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

46 Shantel
47 Gabi
