TNS East (short for The Next Step East) is the temporary name for A-Troupe after Michelle quits the troupe and creates TNS West. TNS East is now a defunct troupe.

History

TNS East is originally A-Troupe, until Michelle quits the troupe and creates TNS West, which Kate officiates.[1] Because of it technically being the official A-Troupe, TNS East is often seen as the more legitimate troupe and therefore gets more funding and resources than its rival.[2]

TNS East wins the dance battle against TNS West, making them the team that will go to Regionals.[3] Although, after Elliot is discovered to be a professional dancer and the rivalry between TNS East and West becomes apparent to Kate, the troupe is disallowed from competing.[4] The troupe eventually disbands altogether, in favour of a merge between its members and TNS West's members.[5]

Description

TNS East is the more technical troupe, per Emily's incessant orders of having technical dancers. There are no alternates, as Emily believes everyone at TNS East should have the opportunity to dance.[6]

Additionally, the troupe is much more strict than its rival, resulting in a series of rules: no sharing choreography or information about the troupe's activities with "outsiders", as Emily deems those who don't dance at TNS East;[2] no cellphones in the studio;[7] and all female dancers must wear their hair up in the studio.[8]
