New Season of The Next Step on Its Way

The second season of The Next Step will be quite intense.

Jordan Clark from Tottenham said that the premiere of the Family Channel show this Friday, March 7th at 7:30 p.m. will be exiting.

The Next Step presents the lives of an elite group of young dancing enthusiasts at the Next Step Studio.

Jordan Clark stated that the role in the series has been a great opportunity for her.

At the end of the first season, the A-Troupe had just won the regionals. However, the celebration is interrupted when the dancers learn they have to re-audition with dancers from other studios in order to form the national team. There will be new faces joining the show and the dancers will be put on a hard test as they try to find a balance between their individual talent and the teamwork needed to win the nationals.

Jordan Clark is known as a hard working dancer. She has won a great number of dance awards.

Recently, she appeared in the Little Mermaid in downtown Toronto and filmed another dance movie called East Side Story which is not yet released.

She is also in the process of moving to Los Angeles because she wants to focus on acting, singing and dancing.
