|This article is about the character. You may be looking for the actress.|
Cierra is forced to dance against her sister, Skylar, in a dance battle and wins, making her a member of A-Troupe. She is thrilled when her sister is permitted to become a member of B-Troupe. Dance becomes the subject of several fights between her sister, although they are eventually resolved.
After winning Internationals, Cierra is ready for the next season and wishes to be on A-Troupe with Skylar. Cierra makes Skylar promise that, as to evade arguments, either both of them make it onto A-Troupe or neither of them do. Cierra becomes so proccupied with Skylar's success that she does extremely poorly in her A-Troupe audition and does not make it onto the troupe.
Before the Show
Cierra is confident when Skylar's name is picked during the dance battle, as she knows that Skylar is prepared. But, her excitement diminishes when Cierra discovers that it is she who has to compete against Skylar.
Cierra knows that her mother will be unable to drive both Cierra and Skylar to rehearsal if they are attending different studios, so Cierra makes a deal with Skylar to forfeit the competition. When Lucien notifies her that if she forfeits she will be unable to return to Elite, Cierra is ultimately forced to compete against her sister, although in secret. Cierra wins the dance battle, thus earning a spot on A-Troupe.
Having gone through the same thing, Cierra later emphasizes with Michelle as she struggles with her parents divorce.
Cierra is shocked by what she deems to be selfishness on Skylar's part when Skylar complains about having to wait for Cierra to finish rehearsal. Cierra grows irate when she discovers that her mother has decided that she will pick up Skylar when she is done, ultimately meaning that Cierra is destined to take an hour longer bus ride home from the studio. Cierra eventually makes up with Skylar after realising she was the one being selfish by forcing her to wait for her.
Before the auditions for the new A-Troupe, Cierra creates a pact in an attempt to not fight with her sister about dance again: either both of them make it onto A-Troupe, or neither does. When it is time for auditions, Cierra makes multiple mistakes in both the choreography and freestyle rounds due to worrying too much about Skylar doing well rather than for herself.
When Skylar makes it onto A-Troupe, and Cierra doesn't, she is angry when Skylar refuses to drop out like she promised she would. After overhearing Kate offering Riley the position of studio owner, Cierra realizes that there will be an empty spot on A-Troupe. Unfortunately, Amanda gets the spot instead of her, despite Cierra enforcing Skylar to put in a good word for her to Riley.
Cierra is kind yet determined, as shown by the lengths she is willing to go to so that both she and Skylar can dance. Despite being from a rival studio, she is more than willing to make friends with the members of The Next Step. Cierra is also quite attentive, shown in how accurately she outlines what has happened while Amanda was in Sweden, despite not being a direct part of most of the events she lists.
Despite being a generally good-natured person, Cierra can be selfish. This trait is showcased through her inability to understand Skylar's frustration about having to wait for her after rehearsal every day and her eagerness for Skylar to drop out of A-Troupe, simply because she herself did not make the team.
Cierra has long, straight hair that is brown in Season 3 and blonde onward. She has fair skin and blue eyes.
