Studio A is in The Next Step Dance Studio and is where the dancers in A-Troupe rehearse.


Studio A is the main setting of the show. It is mainly used by A-Troupe, where they practice their routines for upcoming competitions. The studio is also used for alternate recreational purposes such as: personal dancing, Dance Camp,[1] parties,[2][3] dates,[4] etc. It is in this studio that The Challenge and the dance battles take place. Studio A can also be booked by a dancer who wishes to use the studio for themselves for a certain period of time.


Studio A is a mostly wooden, brightly lit (some light emanating from a chandelier on the ceiling of the dance floor) and large studio that also incorporates Riley's office, which has stained-glass mosaic windows that overlook the dance floor, flanked by ballet barres on either side.

Cubby-holes where the dancers can keep their personal belongings can be seen in the right-hand vestibule (looking from the direction of the dance floor), alongside the entrance.


  • A display cabinet containing trophies from The Next Step's past achievements stands in the left-hand vestibule of Studio A (looking from the direction of the dance floor). Riley is shown to be putting the trophies into boxes when she, Kate, James and West are packing up the contents of the office after receiving the eviction notice.[5]
  • From Season 3 onwards, a large poster based on that of the British Government's motivational poster Keep Calm and Carry On from 1939 can be seen in the corner of the right-hand vestibule, next to the office. Green with white lettering, with a Tudor Crown symbol at the top, this version reads: Keep Calm and Dance On!
  • As of Season 3, a poster bearing the name Giselle can be seen in the passage on the way to the office, but this would appear to refer to a production of the romantic ballet of that name and not Jordan Clark's character in the show.[6]
