Hunter is from Madison, Wisconsin. He is a former member of A-Troupe.


Before the show

Hunter was born in Madison, Wisconsin, where he attended an unnamed dance studio.[1] He was close with and developed feelings for Michelle. He performed a duet with Michelle before she left the studio.

Season 2

Hunter transfers to The Next Step Dance Studio with the hopes of rekindling his relationship with Michelle. When he discovers that Michelle is dating Eldon, he hatches a plan with Emily to get their significant others jealous in order to get them back.[1] He becomes close with his partner-in-crime Emily during the course of the plan.

Hunter challenges Eldon to a dance battle, with the loser having to back off of Michelle.[2] He wins, expecting Eldon to do what was promised, but is frustrated when it takes a while. When a video of Hunter and Eldon's dance battle surfaces, Hunter is voted to get the solo for Absolute Dance Nationals, therefore dethroning Eldon. This creates a rift between Hunter and the other boys.[3]

Michelle hunter season 2

Hunter asks Michelle out.

After Eldon breaks up with Michelle,[4] Hunter asks her out on a date to which she accepts.[5] He is unimpressed when all she can talk about is Eldon during the date.[5] He comes to realize that he actually likes Emily and should have asked her out instead.[5] Later that day, Hunter says as much to Emily and kisses her.[5]

When Hunter discovers that Michelle saw him kiss Emily, he rushes to tell Michelle that he wants to be with Emily, not her, but will still be there as a friend.[6] Due to this, he feels as though he is to blame when Michelle leaves the studio.[7] Nonetheless, Hunter initiates a relationship with Emily which he believes to be going smoothly, contributing to his surprise and hurt when she breaks up with him seemingly out of nowhere.[8]

Hunter works to become friends with Eldon and the other boys. After baking a chocolate cake for Eldon as well as giving him back his solo,[9] helping James get Beth off of his back,[8] and showing West the head slide,[9] they become "bros." Hunter becomes a part of the small group with them as well,[10] and helps them win at Nationals.[11]

Season 3

Hunter picks Eldon's name out of a hat and is forced to face him in a dance battle for a spot on the Internationals team.[12] Although he is confident, Eldon beats him.[12] No longer being in A-Troupe, he says goodbye to the studio and his friends[13] and returns to Madison, Wisconsin.[14]


Hunter is a very determined person, as he transferred studios just to be with Michelle, although this also makes him clingy and unwilling to take "no" for an answer. He is initially extremely selfish, as he never considers the feelings of Eldon nor Michelle when carrying out his agenda, but rather only cares about his personal intention of dating Michelle. He is very confident as well.

Hunter can be remorseful for his actions, as he wishes to make up with Eldon and the rest of the guys, and is willing to apologize to Eldon and give him back his solo.[9] He is also quite caring and humorous when need be.

Hunter is confident. Hunter thinks that he is better at dancing that some of the A-Troupe members. He says he is confident when he is battling Eldon.

After talking to Emily, Hunter realizes that he needs to get on good terms with him.[9] Hunter bakes Eldon a chocolate cake, which Eldon shoves into his face.[9] Hunter hopes that this means they can finally be "bros",[9] although Eldon tells him that they can only be bros if Hunter returns the solo to him.
