TNS East (short for The Next Step East) is the new official name for A-Troupe after Michelle quits the troupe and creates TNS West.

History

TNS East is originally A-Troupe, until Michelle quits the troupe and creates TNS West, believing Emily to be slighting many of the studio's best dancers.[1] Because of this, TNS East is often seen as the more legitimate troupe and, therefore, gets more funding and resources than its rival.[2] Unlike TNS West, TNS East is actually officially A-Troupe.

TNS East is definitely 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.

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;[3] and all female dancers must wear their hair up in the studio.[4]

TNS East rehearses solely in Studio 1.
