He is disappointed he is chosen to face her in the dance battle and even more so when he beats her. Although, he is happy to be on A-Troupe.[11]

When Abi enters B-Troupe, Noah nervously attempts to impress her. He is advised by West and James to speak to her and follows the advice,[23] but still appears awkward and nervous.

Noah catches a glass of milk falling off a table without spilling any of it's contents in Hidalgo's, impressing West, Cierra, and Eldon. For the rest of the day, Noah is subject to their tests to gauge is abilities, all of which he easily passes.[24]

Noah models for Amanda.

Noah collaborates on a song with Amanda.[34] Having bonded with her, Noah entrusts her with helping him pick an outfit for his family gathering. The outfit is liked by his relatives and he brings back pie to share with Amanda as a thank you.[35]

Noah's back starts seizing up,[36] but he tells nobody about it for fear of being kicked off of the trio and A-Troupe, despite only being able to mark the routine during rehearsals. At the qualifier, Noah fumbles due to his back problem, causing the team not to qualify to Regionals.[37] Nonetheless, Noah continues to lie about his injury, but feels bad when he does so to Amanda. After consulting Henry, Noah realizes that the reason he feels bad about lying to her is because he likes her. Noah tells Amanda about his feelings for her, of which are reciprocated, and of his injury, but makes her promise not to tell anyone.[38]

Noah continues to hide his back injury even though Amanda continuously prods him to tell Riley. Noah realizes that his injury is growing worse and finally tells Riley about his state.[39] Shortly after his tests at the hospital, Noah receives an early phone call,[18] during which he is told that he has a cyst on his spinal cord and has to have surgery to get it drained; even with the surgery, he might never dance again. Noah attempts to kiss Amanda before his surgery, but chickens out and promises to kiss her afterward.[40]

Noah does not want Amanda to see him at his weakest while he is at the hospital and snaps at her while she is trying to help him. He is immediately apologetic.[41] On the day Noah is to go home from the hospital, he realizes that he has to kiss Amanda. Noah fears that, if the first kiss is not enjoyable, it will ruin their relationship.

Nonetheless, Noah is content that his first kiss with Amanda went smoothly.[27]

Noah season 4 oy 3

Noah admits that he can't do the duet.

When Noah returns to the studio, he is wary about doing the qualifier duet with Alfie, as his mind is still not ready for him to be dancing again. Despite Amanda's advice to conquer his fear, Noah decides that he cannot do the duet.[42]

Noah is supportive of Amanda when he learns of her opportunity to dance on tour but is happy when she decides to stay and dance with the team.[43] He feels sorry for Amanda when she is taken out of the final routine and worries when she fails to answer his calls.[44]

The Off Season: Season 1

Since breaking up with Amanda, Noah finally finds himself interested in a girl; Noah gains a crush on Jacquie, who he meets at a ballet workshop.[45]

Season 5

Noah excitedly tells Henry about Jacquie, but is forbidden by him from dating her, seeing as she is the ex-girlfriend who broke his heart. Although Noah is happy to make it onto A-Troupe with her, he realizes that nothing can become of their relationship.[46]

Noah struggles to keep his word to Henry, but is adamant about doing so because he values their friendship. Nonetheless, Noah notes undeniable chemistry with Jacquie, which he is not honest to Henry about. This lack of honesty with Henry is what causes Noah to lose his friendship.[47]

Noah asks Jacquie out.

When an upcoming duet competition is brought up, Noah hopes to be paired with Jacquie, but is instead paired with Richelle. Noah believes Richelle to be emotionally stiff and is sure that there would be much more chemistry if Jacquie were his partner. Noah tries to convince Emily of this to avail, and even Jacquie deems his reasoning nonsensical. Wanting to spend time with her nonetheless, Noah asks Jacquie out on a date after rehearsal, which she accepts. Noah is met with Richelle's wrath after Emily tells her about Noah's complaint, he feels guilty for hurting Richelle but nonetheless their friendship ends. Noah is forced into a longer rehearsal with no access to his cellphone, unintentionally ditching Jacquie.[48]

Noah comes to believe that Henry is dating Heather, and subsequently pursues Jacquie. When met with Jacquie's wariness, Noah comes clean to Jacquie about how he feels about her, thus beginning his relationship with her.[49] Noah is confused by Henry's continuous hostility until he realizes that Heather is not Henry's girlfriend. Having had enough, Noah tells Henry that he will be around when he decides to grow up.[12]

Noah becomes acquainted with Elliot's appalling attitude and witnesses him forcing Piper to change the choreography for their dance-off. He comes to Piper's defense when she is interrogated about the changed choreography and witnesses Michelle take Elliot off the team due to his attitude, leaving Noah wondering if Emily would do the same.[12] Noah makes up with Henry after he apologizes, but still feels amiss. Upon hearing Emily and Michelle arguing over changing the date of the dance battle, Noah realizes what is wrong; he notifies Emily that he will be quitting TNS East and joining TNS West where he believes he belongs.[12] Noah is therefore the most devastated at TNS West's loss to TNS East in the dance battle,[50] seeing as simply remaining on his former team would have meant victory.[51]

Noah is the first person who agrees to Piper and Amy's idea of a merge between the teams after the entire studio is disallowed from competing at Regionals, despite seeing the possible consequences if the attempt fails. Noah is worried about Jacquie's wariness to join the merge, even more so upon the discovery that she has been offered a chance to dance at Gemini.[52] He is ecstatic when Jacquie decides to stay[52] and even more when the merge works, allowing the newly unified team to compete at Regionals.[53]

Noah is unimpressed by Richelle and Piper's tactics to retain their dance captaincy and vocalizes this, insisting to his fellow dancers that they must work as a team. This insistence inadvertently results in him ultimately becoming the new dance captain.[9]

Unable to create sufficient contemporary choreography for the qualifier video, Noah tasks Jacquie with the job. He is upset to find that she has created hip-hop choreography instead and confronts her about it, leading to what Noah deems the worst fight he has ever had with Jacquie.[54] While this impasse persists for some time, Noah is able to eventually reconcile with Jacquie after she watches the video and sees that he was right about the choreography.[55]

Noah is ecstatic when his team qualifies for Regionals.[55]

The Off Season: Season 2

Noah auditions for the Stacy Carpenter Scholarship and dances about 'leadership'.[56]

Season 6

Noah starts the new dance seasons confident in his abilities and his place as dance captain. He wishes to work with the new studio head to lead the team to victory at Regionals, but this plan goes awry when he discovers how biased Ms Angela is.[57]

Upon Piper's position on A-Troupe being put in jeopardy, Noah cedes his dance captaincy to Lily in the hopes of keeping Piper's spot. Unfortunately, this is futile, because Piper is replaced with Winnie. Noah is elated when Richelle returns to A-Troupe, declaring her as the "Dance-Zilla" who can take down Ms Angela.[58]

When Richelle appears to have betrayed the team in favour of a duet with Lily at Regionals and being her assistant dance captain and critiques the team incredibly harshly, Noah is furious at her betrayal. However, when she tells them her plan for taking down Ms Angela, she and Noah resume their friendship.[59]

Noah once more becomes dance captain of A-Troupe.[60]

Noah and Jacquie's relationship continues with minor issues. Noah promposes to Jacquie and they attend prom together.[61][5]

After Summer fails to win the five-point advantage at the Absolute Dance WildStylz convention, Noah's position on the team is put into jeopardy due to him turning 18.[62] He is voted off the team due to Piper's anxiety about performing in the senior division at Regionals, but his kindness in helping Piper try to get her aerial prompts her to change her mind and Noah is reinstated into the team.[63]

Noah is content once more to be on the team, but when he and Richelle are rehearsing their ballet pas de deux under Chloe's tutelage, she invites him to audition for a professional musical. While initially not wanting to audition, Noah is convinced to audition by both Richelle and Jacquie.[64]

The audition for the musical clashes with A-Troupe rehearsal and Noah gets in trouble with Emily for auditioning. Despite this and his encounter with Elliot who tries to intimidate him, the audition goes well.[65] Unfortunately, Noah loses the part to Elliot, but thanks to the audition and conversations with Michelle, he is now aware of the possibility of more to dance than just The Next Step.[66]

At Regionals, Noah confesses to Richelle that he is thinking of leaving the studio. Despite Piper's failure to perform her aerial, Noah helps the team to qualify for finals thanks to his extremely emotional duet with Richelle; he reminds her of their shared history and helps her break through her emotional barrier.[67]

When it appears as though The Next Step has lost Regionals, Noah realizes that he owes nothing to anyone on the team and does not have to stay if he wants to leave. He attempts to convince Jacquie that they can still stay together despite him leaving, but she breaks up with him because she does not want to tie him to The Next Step. Noah is both saddened and glad when A-Troupe sings "Wish You Well" to him in farewell and helps lead the team to victory, thus enabling them to qualify for Nationals.[68]

The Off Season: Season 3

Noah has left The Next Step.[69]


Noah is initially quite awkward, blabbering regularly and easily getting nervous. He is initially prone to doubting himself and feeling inferior as well, but helping A-Troupe win Internationals makes Noah a more confident person. As Noah matures, he eventually becomes someone whom people go to for help[53], as well as becoming a leader of the team.[9]

Noah is an easily smitten individual, as seen through his feelings for Abi, Amanda, and Jacquie. Noah's infatuation is sometimes at the expense of his platonic friendships, as seen when he lets his crush on Jacquie get in the way of his friendship with Henry. Noah has also been accused of allowing his relationships to interfere with his dancing, as shown by accusations from both Emily[48] and Richelle.[70]
