|“||Don't you think I know that I have a hard time connecting to people, Noah?||”|
— Richelle, recognizing her stand-offish nature, "It's All Fun and Games..."
Richelle is made dance captain of TNS East.
Before the show
Richelle did gymnastics, but started dancing when one of her friends did.
Richelle joined J-Troupe.
Richelle is outraged when she learns that she and the other current J-Troupers must re-audition for the troupe. She tries to persuade Kate to give the current dancer guaranteed spots to no avail. Richelle auditions and remains on the troupe.
When Emily can no longer dance, Richelle is given her spot in the dance battles. Despite an exceptional solo, she is outmatched by her opponent, Max, anddoes not make it onto A-Troupe. Though, her commendable performance causes Kate to promote her to B-Troupe.
Richelle is given the dance captain diary by Emily, which she uses to gain as much knowledge as she can about holding the title. When Giselle struggles with being dance captain, Richelle gives her the diary.
Richelle places second in a duet competition with Max. The victory prompts Phoebe's decision to have A-Troupers and B-Troupers perform duets with each other, for which Richelle Richelle is paired with Noah, much to her displeasure. Fortunately for her, having to spend time with Noah causes Richelle to realize that she no longer likes him.
Upon A-Troupe's difficulty registering for Absolute Dance Internationals, Richelle is paired with Skylar to perform a duet to cleanse the studio. Richelle finds the idea ridiculous, but partakes in it nonetheless.
Richelle makes it onto A-Troupe.
Richelle auditions for the Regionals qualifier with Michelle and Amanda. Her excellent performance causes her to replace Sloane in the winning trio. At the competition, Richelle is irate when Noah fumbles during the routine, causing them not to qualify.
Richelle is concerned for Noah when she discovers that he has to get back surgery, but assures him that he will get through it. Richelle visits Noah in the hospital where she meets Amanda in the waiting room. After finding out Noah told Amanda to leave his room, Richelle she tells Amanda of how she did not want any of her friends to visit her in the hospital when she got her tonsils removed because she looked like a chipmunk, and claims that Noah is just a proud person.
Richelle offers Amanda and Amy to fill in for Michelle in the rehearsal of their trio for Regionals. When accused of being selfish by Michelle, Richelle assures Michelle that she is looking out for the studio way more than she is and tells her that she must give an equal amount of time to her solo and trio.
Richelle is uncharacteristically nervous to perform the duet with Noah at Regionals but is given advice from Noah and is able to help the team qualify to the sem-finals. She is disappointed when the team loses the competition.
Richelle makes it onto A-Troupe and is made dance captain, much to her excitement. She is immediately wary of Lola's subsequent kindness toward her, believing it to be a means of sucking up to her for a featured spot in one of the routines. Although, after seeing Lola stand up for her and refuse a proposed solo, Richelle is willing to give their friendship a chance.
Richelle is paired with Noah to compete at a duet competition and believes their rehearsal to be going well. She is therefore irate when Emily tells her that Noah believes she is having trouble connecting with him, not only because he didn't tell her himself, but because she and he both know she has trouble connecting with people.
Richelle initially appears as a confident keener. Her greatest ambition is to become the dance captain of A-Troupe and she is willing to do just about everything to achieve this dream. Richelle can be close-minded and wary of change, shown in how angry she is when the members of J-Troupe have to re-audition for their spots. Despite her apparent conceit and bossiness, she struggles with certain tasks, such as: getting people's attention and bargaining. Richelle is willing to listen to others' advice if it will benefit her, as she deeply respects her superiors, but she still struggles with criticism.
Richelle displays a large amount of envy when she has a crush on Noah, as she continuously gets jealous when she sees him interact with Abi. Richelle views her temporary crush on Noah as a hindrance rather than a normal emotion, even deeming infatuation as the reason A-Troupe loses dancers. She genuinely cares about Noah nonetheless, although selfishly; she has stated that she wants Noah to be happy, but not with Abi. Otherwise, Richelle is very much a lone wolf and has trouble connecting to people. Richelle can be prissy, dramatic and judgmental, exemplified with how disgusted she is at Noah's habits.
Richelle's determination and conceit reach all-time highs in preparation for her A-Troupe audition. She goes out of her way to display her expertise and revels in the intimidation of her peers that results from her dancing. But, since Richelle is obsessed with perfection, she is able to commend others on their successful dancing. In fact, Richelle can be quite empathetic and rarely harbours genuine ill-content; her greatest flaw, perhaps, is her inability to make her words reflect her mind-set.
Richelle has fair skin and green eyes. Richelle initially has straight, dirty blonde hair, which is dyed brown for a dance season. Afterward, her hair reverts to blonde, but is noticeably thicker and longer.
While dancing, Richelle usually wears a sleeveless top and shorts.
Richelle's street wear is quite feminine, as she is usually seen in a dress or skirt.
