Giselle is a professional dancer. She is a former member of A-Troupe, a troupe in which she was briefly Dance Captain.


Before the show

Giselle was a very hyperactive child. Worried about her state, Giselle's parents consulted a few other people, who suggested that Giselle be enrolled in dance. As a result, Giselle joined The Next Step Dance Studio at age five and immediately felt at home.

Giselle met Daniel at this time and he became her best friend. She eventually mentored him.[5]

Giselle started learning acro when she was seven and, shortly afterwards, went to circus school as a contortionist.[6] When she returned to The Next Step, she learned all of the remaining dance styles.[6]

Giselle started to play soccer, but eventually quit due to ensuing pain in her legs..[7]

Giselle was promoted to A-Troupe where she became a member of E-Girls.

Season 1

Giselle does not make into A-Troupe and is demoted into B-Troupe, as well as kicked out of E-Girls by Emily. Giselle realizes that she didn't make it into the troupe because she didn't push her self; she promises that she will never make that mistake again.[8]

Giselle practices her dancing day in and day out in the hopes of being promoted to A-Troupe and leaving B-Troupe for good. She despises being in the B-Troupe due to its lackadaisical nature and prays to be able to get out of it.

With Michelle's help, Giselle manages to perform the lift with Daniel during rehearsal, but it does not go as expected; upon doing the lift, Giselle watches Daniel fall to the ground in pain. She is devastated to discover that he has a grade three ankle sprain and will thus be unable to compete at Regionals.[11]

After making it into A-Troupe, Giselle befriends Thalia and Amanda. She auditions with them for the Nationals trio and is granted the routine.

Giselle is saddened to discover that Daniel left The Next Step for Superstar Dance Academy in order to have the male solo for Nationals, especially since he didn't tell her.[12]

Giselle thalia season 2 episode 15

Giselle tells Thalia of her plan to motivate James and Riley.

Upon seeing Riley and James's struggling with their duet, Giselle concocts a plan: she and Thalia create a faux duet meant to motivate James and Riley to work harder. Unfortunately, the plan fails and Giselle is given the duet.[13] Knowing that she cannot do both the trio and the duet, Giselle tries to convince James and Riley to take the duet back, but they refuse it.

After the truth about Amanda's nature is revealed, Giselle no longer gets to be featured in the Nationals trio. After James and Riley get back together, Giselle offers them the duet once more and, this time, they accept it.[14]

Giselle is ecstatic to see Daniel at Nationals, but is shocked to be met with coldness on his part. At the Nationals party, she is apologized to him and rekindles her friendship with him. She is happy for him when he is granted the opportunity to audition for Juilliard.[15]

Season 3

Giselle is angered and astonished when Daniel joins Elite, meaning that he will be competing against The Next Step in the dance battles for Internationals.[4] Giselle competes against Daniel in the dance battle and is overwhelmed with emotion when everybody votes for her, especially after everything that she had to go through.[16]

Giselle becomes the new Dance Captain.

After Michelle steps down from the position, Giselle is initially chosen by Kate to be the new Dance Captain. But, after Shantel expresses her wish to be Dance Captain as well, a trio competition ensues; the leader of the better trio will become Dance Captain. Giselle struggles with commanding her group and, after seeing how easily Shantel commands hers, begins to doubt herself. She receives words of advice and encouragement from Michelle and, with her newfound confidence, becomes the new Dance Captain.[18]

Wishing to be the best Dance Captain she can be, Giselle consults Michelle once again. She works through a series of exercises with J-Troupe in an attempt to hone her skills, but it ends in failure. After her defeat, she receives the Dance Captain Diary from Richelle which gives her a boost of confidence.[19]

At A-Troupe's party, Giselle is enamoured by Theo, and confesses confesses that she has a crush on him. When, she is asked by him to dance, Giselle happily accepts.[20]

Giselle wtwio

Giselle performs her solo.

Upon Ella stealing Riley's at Internationals, Giselle proposes that she teaches Riley a solo that she made. Although, with no time to do so, Giselle is put into costume and thrust onto the Internationals stage to perform the solo. Despite her exceptional solo, her outstanding performance is not enough to win the title of Miss Nationals Soloist.[21]

Giselle is shocked to discover that the two to seven person dance she is a part of is to be done blindfolded. Although, with the inclusion of Noah, she and her group advance to the quarter finals.[22] Giselle competes in the quarter finals and helps the team advance to the semi-finals.[23]

Giselle is angered at Daniel's arrival to Internationals and despite his apology, Giselle yells at him and brushes him off completely. She later receives a video from him of Lucien attempting to take down the studio, which works to get him fired as judge of the finals. Despite not formally reconciling with Daniel, Giselle admits that there may be hope for him.[24]

Season 4

Giselle season 4

Giselle talks about her audition.

After leading the team to success at the highest level, Giselle decides to audition for a world touring dance company.[25] After telling Michelle and Amanda about this intention, she is met with interest by Amanda who wished to audition as well.

On the day of auditions, Giselle reconciles with Tiffany. After being called back, Giselle makes it onto the tour.[26]


Giselle is, at first, seemingly too sure of herself and comfortable with her dancing presumably because of her membership to the E-Girls. This contributes to her demise, as playing it safe with her dancing gets her cut from A-Troupe and subsequently, the E-Girls.[8] This lackadaisical persona is brief, though, because from that point on she becomes relentlessly determined and hardworking, and promises that she will never get too comfortable again.[27] This claim is furthered in her distaste for the comedic nature of B-Troupe.

Giselle season 2

Giselle tries to think of another competition to do.

When she returns to A-Troupe, Giselle is shown to be extremely friendly, animated, and funny. She can be seen making jokes very often, but also knows when it is time to be serious. In addition, it is revealed that she has a very strange laugh.[10] She is liked by all of the members in A-Troupe and is never involved in major conflict. Despite her care-free nature, Giselle is also able to put her foot down and stand up for what is right. She is also somewhat of an idealist and always wishes to accommodate everyone, even when such a task is implausible. Furthermore, Giselle is very competitive.[28]

She is helpful and empathetic, as she had taught Daniel how to dance in the hopes that he could be a professional,[5] and is the only dancer who understands why he leaves the studio.[15] Giselle always takes the ideas of her colleagues into consideration and is willing to incorporate the other dancers' strengths, ultimately leading to her becoming Dance Captain.[18]

Giselle is proficient in hip-hop. She is one of the focal dancers in the music mystery routine at Internationals, which is a hip-hop routine.


While Giselle is proficient in ballet, it isn't her strongest style.
