A-Troupe traditionally has 12 members, two of which are alternates, as only 10 dancers can compete at competitions. It is well-known that on the troupe, nobody's spot is safe–although, neither Michelle or Emily has to auditions for the troupe in Season 2. A-Troupe is led by a dance captain, and is the only troupe at The Next Step Dance Studio to have one.
In Season 2, after making it to Nationals, A-Troupe decides to buy professional uniforms in order to fit in with the other dance teams, and they hire designers Zoltan and Minnow to create them in exchange for A-Troupe being models in one of their fashion shows.
The resulting uniform consists of a blue hooded jacket with the logo of The Next Step on the front and back and the letter A for A-Troupe on the right shoulder. The jacket eventually changes to one that has no hood, with black embroidery and The Next Step logo replaced with the acronym TNS. The rest of the uniform consists of a light blue shirt, with fitted blue yoga pants for the girls and blue sweatpants for the boys. The uniform eventually changes so that the blue yoga pants become black leggings and the blue sweatpants become black sweatpants. Furthermore, the black leggings eventually become stylized with a blue portion at the lower calf that has the acronym TNS upon it.
