Before the Show

Season 1

Noah is taught a routine by Daniel which he eventually performs with his troupe for A-Troupe.[4]

He sings and plays the guitar during a performance for A-Troupe in order to wish them luck for Absolute Dance Regionals.[5]

Season 2

Noah is initially scared of Amanda upon her arrival to The Next Step because of her uncanny intelligence.[6]

Noah auditions for A-Troupe but doesn't make it in.[7] He returns to J-Troupe, where he is eventually forced to re-audition for his spot due to an influx of new dancers, and remains on the troupe.[8]

Noah participates in the 24 Hour Challenge by creating and performing a song with James and Camille.[9]

James noah season 2 2

Noah listens to James threaten him as a way of getting him to perform in the fundraiser.

When Michelle and Chloe hold a fundraiser at Culture Shock, he and James are booked to perform. Noah is far from ecstatic about the looming performance because he fears that his will crack while he sings on-stage. Although the predicament appears to be remedied when Amanda steps in as the singer, he is eventually forced to perform when she bails on them. Thankfully, his voice does not crack in the process.[10]

Season 3

Noah is now one of J-Troupe's best dancers. When The Next Step must participate in a competition against Elite Dance Academy, he is offered a spot in the line-up by Kate which he graciously accepts.[11] During the competition, Noah takes notice of Abi, an Elite dancer who Noah confesses that he wants to get to know better. He is disappointed when he has to face her in the dance battle, and even more so when he beats her, despite it meaning that he is now on A-Troupe.[12]

Noah abi season 3 cftf

Noah attempts to talk to Abi.

Things turn around for the better when Abi enters B-Troupe. He constantly tries to impress her by getting things for her and getting Chloe to "compliment" him.[13] He seeks advice from West and James who tell him to just speak to her.[14] He takes the advice, but still proves to be obsessive.

One day, Noah catched a glass of milk falling off a table without spilling any of it in Hidalgo's, impressing West, Cierra, and Eldon who decide to see just how good his reflexes are. The three test Noah through a series of challenges of which passes with flying colours.[15]

Noah begins to feel like he isn't really a part of the team and as though his peers view him as inferior because he is younger than them. He is assisted by Ella and, with her help, he finally executes a difficult move.[16] Newly confident, he challenges Eldon for the position of male soloist for Absolute Dance Internationals, and despite losing, becomes confident that he will one day get to Eldon's level and have a solo.[17]

Noah abi season 3 imp

Noah slow dances with Abi.

At A-Troupe's party, Noah attempts to ask Abi to dance with him, but instead, blabbers about mayonnaise. After a few words of advice from James, Noah attempts to ask Abi to dance and despite his lack of coherent words, Abi understands. The two begin to slow dance. Noah is elated when Abi confesses that she wanted him to invite her to the party, and he tells her that he wanted to but was too nervous. When Abi tells him that he doesn't need to be, Noah has his first kiss with Abi.[18] Shortly after the kiss, he blacks out.[19]

Noah's uncanny spacial awareness causes him to be enlisted in the blindfolded routine at Internationals. He is ultimately who leads the team to victory, causing him to feel assured about his role on the team.[20]

Season 4

Noah admits that he is nervous for auditions.[21] With some help from Alfie and Henry, Noah becomes a little more confident and he makes it onto A-Troupe.[22] Noah eventually becomes a part of the trio for the first qualifier alongside Piper and Richelle.[23]

Amanda noah season 4 lc

Noah looks at Amanda with confusion after he is hugged by her.

Noah collaborates on a song with Amanda and grows closer to her.[24] Noah is helped by Amanda to help choose a good outfit for his family gathering. To show his appreciation, Noah tries to hug Amanda, but stops because he feels awkward.The costume is liked by his relatives, and he brings back some pie to share with Amanda as a thank you.[25]

Noah's back begins to start seizing up,[26] but tells nobody about it for fear of being kicked off of A-Troupe. This works to be detrimental, as this back problem causes him to falter during his trio at the qualifier, leading to the team's loss at the event.[27] Even after the loss, Noah continues to lie about his injury, but feels bad when he does so to Amanda. After consulting Henry, Noah realizes that the reason he feels bad about lying to her is because he likes her. Noah tells Amanda that he really likes her and admits to her that he has a back injury, but forces Amanda to keep his injury a secret. Eventually, Noah is confronted by Riley about his blunder at the qualifier again, but he lies that he faltered because he was distracted by Amanda.[28]

Noah amanda season 4 hoftm 2

Noah learns of the magnitude of his back problem.

Noah continues to hide his back injury, even though Amanda continuously prods him to tell Riley. Eventually, Noah realizes that his injury is growing worse and tells Riley about his state.[29] Shortly after his tests, Noah receives an early phone call from the hospital.[6] He is told that he has a cyst on his spinal cord and has to have surgery to get it drained, meaning that there is a possibility he might never dance again. Noah attempts to kiss Amanda before his surgery, but chickens out and promises to kiss her after his surgery.[30]

Noah does not want Amanda to see him at his weakest and snaps at her while she is trying to help him. He is immediately apologetic.[31]

With his surgery out of the way, Noah realizes that he has to kiss Amanda. Noah fears that, if the first kiss is not enjoyable, it will ruin his relationship with Amanda. When Amanda tells him that she kissed him while he was under the anesthetic, he finally kisses her, only to realize that she lied. Nonetheless, Noah is content that his first kiss with Amanda went smoothly.[19]

When Noah returns to the studio, he is wary about doing the qualifier duet with Alfie, as his mind is still not ready for him to be dancing again. Despite Amanda's advice to conquer his fear, Noah decides that he cannot do the duet.[32]


Noah is initially quite awkward. Overtime, Noah becomes more confident, but still remains a bit awkward. Despite how multi-talented he is, Noah is quite humble to the point that it seems as though he unaware of how gifted he is. When he first becomes a member of A-Troupe, Noah doubts himself immensely but builds courage when he realizes that he is truly an asset to the team. It can therefore be said that Noah's greatest desire probably is to be wanted.

Noah is a genuine affectionate individual, although he does not necessarily know how to normally depict this affection. For much of Season 3, Noah pines for Abi but struggles with how to converse with her. The true extent of Noah's care can be with how he acts in the presence of Amanda.

Physical appearance

Although Noah appears to be gangly, he is actually quite muscular, which Amanda has pointed out.[25] Noah has also been described as cute by Stephanie[33] and Amanda.[30] He has fair skin, green eyes, and brown hair.

In Season 1 and Season 2, Noah wears red and blue undershirts with shorts and socks. Season 3 and onward, Noah's dance wardrobe changes immensely. As opposed to undershirts and shorts, Noah wears tiro pants and baseball jerseys in the studio. During the later seasons, opposed to the earlier ones, Noah is usually barefoot around the studio.



Spacial Awareness

Noah has heightened spacial awareness, allowing him to be able to sense his surroundings even while blindfolded. This allows him to also be able to catch and dodge items with ease.[15]


Noah has declared that he is a fast runner.[34]


In "Square One", Michelle describes Noah as the best dancer at the studio; however, she might have just said this to persuade him to be in her trio.


Contemporary is Noah's dominant style of dance.


Noah is proficient in acro, which he first reveals to Cierra in "Your New Beginning."


As seen in "The Nutcracker Prince," Noah is proficient in ballet. Noah has been shown to be able to do more pirouettes than Giselle.[35] In fact, Noah can do 30 pirouettes in quick succession effortlessly.[36]


Noah is able to perform hip-hop, but it is far from his strongest style. In "Square One", Noah learns how to tut for the first time.
