Michelle is a contemporary dancer who was named Miss National Soloist. She's the new girl at the studio and just wants to fit in and make friends, even though she was the Dance Captain of her last troupe. She ends up becoming Dance Captain of the Next Step studio by the end of the episode "Sabatoge."
Michelle has long curly blonde hair, with brown eyes and tan skin. She looks to be around 5'6". Michelle usually wears pink and usually wears her hair down.
Michelle is very kind and she takes dance very seriously but always remembers it is about having fun. Overall Michelle just wants everyone in the studio to get along. Early in the series, she is portrayed to be very kind, friendly and somewhat passive, especially towards Emily . However, once she sees how Emily treats everybody in the studio, she decides not to take it anymore and becomes more assertive.
In the first episode, Emily is shown to be threatened by her the minute Michelle walks in the studio. Michelle at first isn't aware of this. Yet, in the episode "Can You Keep a Secret," she sees how badly Emily treats everyone in the studio, especially Chloe after she shows up late at the studio, and stands up for her. Later on, Michelle decides to join Riley's and James's plan on overthrowing Emily's position as dance captain. Their plan worked and Michelle is now dance captin.
Eldon had thought Michelle was a nice person ever since he met her. When the team had to pick dance partners in the episode "Just the Two of Us", Michelle picked Eldon. Later on Emily decided to be Eldons partner too, so he had two partners. When it was time for auditions, Eldon ended up picking neither and picked Chloe. In the episode "Get it Together," Michelle sees Eldon get along with Emily and is unsure why she's upset about it.
