B-Troupe is the second highest rank in The Next Step, after A-Troupe, for recreational dancers.


Although the members of B-Troupe are known to fool around and not take things seriously in the earlier seasons, the troupe begins to drastically change in Season 3. Giselle comments that it is nothing like it once was, back when she belonged to it.[1]

Nonetheless, being demoted from A-Troupe to B-Troupe is deemed as negative, as it means that you haven't improved at all as a dancer, or you have gotten worse.[2]




Presumably at the same time that A-Troupe gains its uniform, B-Troupe is given a similar one albeit with just the hooded jacket. Like the A-Troupe jacket, it has The Next Step's logo on the front and back, and the right shoulder displays the letter 'B' for 'B-Troupe'. The colour of the jacket is also blue, but it is a much lighter and brighter blue than the A-Troupe jacket. It always seems to be worn with black leggings. It can be assumed that the jacket, like the uniforms, was designed by Zoltan and Minnow.
