B-Troupe is the second-highest ranking troupe at The Next Step Dance Studio, after A-Troupe. It is initially described as a troupe for recreational dancers, and also includes dancers who have demoted from A-Troupe or promoted from J-Troupe


Although the original members of B-Troupe are known to fool around and not take things seriously in the earlier seasons, the troupe begins to drastically change in Season 3. Giselle comments that it is nothing like it once was when she belonged to it.[1]

Nonetheless, being demoted from A-Troupe to B-Troupe is deemed as negative, as it means that you haven't improved at all as a dancer, or you have gotten worse.[2]





Presumably at the same time that A-Troupe gains its uniform, B-Troupe is given a similar one albeit with just the jacket. Like the A-Troupe jacket, it has The Next Step's logo on the front and back, and the right shoulder displays the letter 'B' for 'B-Troupe'. The colour of the jacket is also blue, but it is a much lighter and brighter blue than the A-Troupe jacket. It always seems to be worn with black leggings. It can be assumed that the jacket, like the uniforms, was designed by Zoltan and Minnow.

At the same time that Miss Angela becomes studio head and gets A-Troupe new uniforms, Winnie is seen wearing a new B-Troupe uniform, which consists of an orange T-shirt with "TNS" printed on it in silver. Besides being in different colours, it is similar in design to Miss Angela's A-Troupe uniform. Winnie is the only B-Trouper to wear this on-screen during Miss Angela's reign as studio head. The uniform makes a reappearance during It's a Wonderful Life, Piper - Part 1 and Part 2; Richelle and Ozzy are seen wearing it in an alternate timeline where they have been moved down to B-Troupe.
