Top Ten Best The Next Step Characters

The Top Ten
1 Riley

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.

2 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 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

3 Michelle

Michelle is a beautiful young lady and looks like Richelle. This is my opinion. I didn't like her on season 3 or 4, but I loved her on the rest. She is also a 2-time Miss National Champion. First, I feel like they got their order muddled up. In my opinion, this is how I would have it:

1. Richelle
2. Michelle
3. West
4. Eldon
5. Noah
6. Giselle
7. Daniel
8. Summer
9. Jacque
10. Amanda and Amy
but Piper a close 11

I don't think Michelle is the best, though I do think she is a very close second. Personally, I think Richelle should have made it into A troupe in season 2. And then she may have got Miss National Soloist. I love Michelle though in season 1. I think she is slightly overrated. I love how Michelle goes through a divorce so people whose parents are divorced can see what it is like for her. Michelle is my second favorite, and hopefully, after reading this, she moves up on your list.

4 Giselle

Giselle is amazing. She is sweet, cool and utterly brilliant. She is definitely 5he best character in the next step and Jordan Clark is a stunning, amazing and a brilliant actor!

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!

she can do anything literally whether it is a spider to a walking bridge. I love her in every season and there's nothing I fault her with. I loved her friendship with Amanda and Thalia. I think she was underrated in season 1 & 2 but in season 3 she had the best solo in the merge she became dance captain and got to do the international solo this girl can handle anything

5 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.

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)

6 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.

7 Emily

at first I didn't like Emily but then I warmed up to her a bit more.

I have to say that Emily's loyalty to the studio is very impressive especially when Amanda is trying to take the next step down from the inside. I also find that her loyalty to Stephanie in season 1 is very impressive because she and riley let her sleep round every night. I love how caring she is for Riley too. Especially in seasons 2 and 4.In the end I love that she becomes best friends with Michelle because that relationship is very sweet.

I would like to give a shout out to Stephanie because I love her too.

8 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.

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.

9 Noah

Noah's freakishly good at catching and dodging things which I find unbelievable because, well you wouldn't expect that from Noah. I also have to say that he is such a good dancer that he makes all the moves he does look easy, not especially in season 3 but in 4,5 and 6 he does. I also love his relationship with Jacquie .

I would also like to give a shout out to Jacquie because I love her too.

He is so special and brings the team together. Him and Jacquie have something special and I cried when they did their last dance because Noah was leaving The Next Step.

10 Richelle

Richelle is an amazing dancer, her acro is incredible, her turns on pointe and her contemporary amazing. She should have left the Next Step a long time ago but I did annoy how good she was. Definitely 1st place.

She is a tough stubborn person that is very I would say like a panda. They're stubborn to new people but very kind and know what they want

I think she is a great dancer. I love her moves. I really think she is a powerhouse, her dancing inspires me to love dance and make myself want to dance like her.

I'm was sad and a little bit mad that she left TNS in s7 for Dance mania, but when I saw the flash-back video I knew that she wanted to see what she could do on her own, But turns out she needs a team and is stronger together.

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 first! She is always on point with her dancing and she lacks confidence but you never catch her being rude.

12 Ella

Being British myself I really like Ella she is SO cool and funny but she is also very scheamful but I still LOVE her!

She's so good at pranking they're always funny.

13 Sloane

The only part about Sloane I don't like is that she was so dramatic that LaTroy was dating Amy but I think she is super sweet and and the best female hip hop dancer in TNS!

14 Chloe

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!

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.

15 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

Him and Emily were perfect for each other! He is so charming too!

So chill and cool he deserves Emily.

16 Jacquie

She is so pretty and a talented dancer.she and no I have a amazing bond and relationship.I love how she and Richelle pushed each other to be brilliant dances.

She is so pretty, and a very talented dancer. She and Noah have an amazing bond and relationship. I love how she and Richelle pushed each other to be brilliant dancer. I love her personality too.

Jacquie is so nice and she is great with Noah! She is also competitive like me and very pretty!

17 Jiley

Riley and James are the cutest couple ever! Although I do have to say Emily and Hunter were so perfect together, I miss that couple so much! Anyway James and Riley just fit together like puzzle pieces, each piece one of them is missing, the other has the them. It's hard to explain, their just so perfect! Booo Alfie!

" 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!"

18 Lola

She is so bubbly, sweet, and confident. I love her character so much, I wish so much that she was still at The Next Step. She should have been in a relationship though, it would have been so cute.

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.

Your right she is so bubbly and nice. I love her personality. I'm sad that she left in s6. I can't believe she was on Ella's team in s3, and I also couldn't believe she was trying to take down TNS. I'm glad she put her heart to TNS and not Ella's team.

Lola's dancing inspires me to dance Jazz.

19 Summer

She is so pretty and a very technical and emotional dancer which is fantastic and she is really kind.

I love her type of style, it's like Michelle I could watch her dance for days. Her style is just amazing

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

She is not overrated! I don't like her as much as I used to. She used to be so much better, her bubbly, sweet self. But something changed, it's hard to explain.

I've loved Amy since her first line in the show I don't know why though but her smile is def the best thing about her and maybe I like her because I really like the acro style.

21 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 is so sassy loyal and a great friend.

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

22 Talia

Thalia is so sweet and caring not just to Eldon but the whole of A troupe she sees good in people when they don't even see it in there selves for example max & west . Thalia is a strong young women who is so friendly caring kind and lovely and on top of that she is friends with everyone on A troupe which shows how easy it is to make friends with her

First of all It's not talia it's Thalia.
Second of all she is so nice and so kind and she makes Eldon happy which is another bonus because Eldon is one of my favourite characters.

23 Henry

Henry made a big mistake with summer not that she's a bad person but Amy's way better. That's about his only flaw . He's an amazing character and proves that hip hop dancers are just as good as contemporary/acro (Emily) not that I'm saying she's wrong . Overall a great dancer

Henry made a big mistake with someone not that she's a bad person but Amy's is way better. Amy is way better than summe.

Henry is really funny but confusing.

24 Margie

Despite how young Margie is shes such a diva! I just imagine her wearing black shades! And I nearly cried when Margie disappeared but I absolutely love Chloe and Margie's friendship and how Margie always knows what to say and do I just love her so much. I was she would become a professional Next Step dancer!

I love how she was like a mini mom to everybody but I love how she always had good advice for Chloe.

The most mature little girl ever!

25 Cierra

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
