Gale[1][2] is Amy's mom and a former professional dancer.


Before the show

Gale was a professional dancer.[3]

The Off Season: Season 1

After the The Next Step's dance season of loss, Gale decides she needs to be more invested in Amy's dance life so that she can become a professional.[3]

Season 5

Gale believes that Amy is on TNS East for quite some time and is enamoured by Studio 1's allure. She frequently drops by the studio unannounced to check up on Amy and the studio space.

One day, Gale stops by the studio, only to find Amy fooling around in Studio A as opposed to rehearsing in Studio 1. Irate and baffled at the troupe's buffoonery, Gale pulls Amy out of the studio.[1]


Although Gale loves her daughter, she is incredibly overbearing of her upon A-Troupe's Regionals loss. Gale only expects the best from Amy and refuses to acknowledge anything less, often needlessly pressuring her in the process.

Gale's over investment in Amy's life appears to be her way of living vicariously through Amy; it seems as though Gale is reliving her former time as a dancer through her daughter.
