Trevor Tordjman and Jordan Clark, stars of the hit teen dance drama The Next Step, are engaged but have not yet tied the knot. Their real-life romance has delighted fans who watched their characters fall in love on the show. Though fictional Trevor and Jordan got engaged on screen in 2016, the actual couple only got engaged in real life in late 2021.
Many of The Next Step‘s young cast members formed real bonds while filming, but Trevor and Jordan‘s off-screen relationship outlasted them all. Their contagious chemistry as on-screen love interests has blossomed into a lifelong partnership. But don‘t worry – there‘s still a real-life wedding to look forward to!
Trevor and Jordan: Dance Dreams Turned Off-Screen Romance
Trevor Tordjman and Jordan Clark simultaneously landed their career-making roles on The Next Step back in 2013. Tordjman‘s dance training began at just four years old and included ballet, hip-hop, jazz, lyrical, and tap. Clark similarly started dance lessons as a child and competed across Canada. Their raw talents were evident from a young age.
Over The Next Step‘s four seasons and 93 episodes, the pair‘s acting and dancing skills made Trevor and Jordan fan favorites. The show, which follows competing dancers at the Next Step Dance Studio, premiered in 2013 on the Family Channel. It gained a wide audience in Canada, the UK, and internationally.
The Next Step averaged an impressive 879,000 viewers per episode in its home country of Canada.
Tordjman and Clark‘s natural chemistry translated from intense dance rehearsals to tender on-screen moments. Their characters experienced exhilarating highs and heartbreaking lows in their tumultuous TV relationship. When fictional Trevor proposed an emotional engagement to Jordan in the Season 4 finale, millions of fans swooned.
Off-screen, the bond between the actors continued to grow. Like their characters, the real Trevor and Jordan defied the odds and realized they were perfect dance partners. After years of dating quietly, Tordjman proposed to Clark over the 2021 Christmas holiday.
Inside Trevor‘s Magical Proposal to Jordan

Tordjman clearly invested in a ring worthy of his Next Step co-star turned real-life leading lady!
Confusion Among Fans – Are Trevor and Jordan Really Engaged?
Understandably, many fans were bewildered when news broke of Clark‘s engagement to Tordjman. Some mistakenly thought fictional characters Trevor and Jordan were the ones getting married.
Comments on Clark‘s Instagram post asked:
- "OMG is this real?"

Multiple entertainment outlets also initially reported that The Next Step characters were engaged, not the actors. This speaks to the authenticity Tordjman and Clark brought to playing smitten teenagers.
Luckily, both stars clarified that the engagement announcement was for real life, not just a show storyline. After years of on-screen flirting, the actors were taking their own relationship to the next level away from the dance studio.
