The Jennifer Ellison Dance Team (aka JEDT) is the team featured on Dance Mums. The team was selected prior to the show's debut in 2014. The dancers compete at weekly competitions with routines learned days before said competition. Jennifer Ellison is the main choreographer however guest choreographers are occasionally brought in to assist. Guest dancers are also brought in occasionally.
Eleiyah is Tayluer's biggest rival on the team and is often shown to be Jennifer's "number two girl". In the second season of the show however, both Eleiyah and Tayluer are described as being Jennifer's favourites.
Chloe is the youngest dancer on the team but despite this, she often outshines the older girls in group routines. Jennifer describes Chloe as a being her "prodigy". During the first season of the show she was often referred to as "Chloe Jnr" due to the presence of another Chloe on the team.
Leah Rose was originally introduced as part of the reserve team but was later added to the main team as Jennifer liked her stage presence. She has since remained as part of the Jennifer Ellison Dance Team.
Harry was added to the team after auditions in the first episode of the second season. However, Jennifer announced in episode four that Harry had to leave the team due to school commitments. Harry made a re-apperance for the season two finale but it is unknown if he will be returning for season three.
Chloe was an original member of the team in Season 1. In One Man Down: Crisis Auditions, Chloe and her mother were excluded due to a physical altercation between Carol and Danielle in the previous episode. However she returned the next week with her grandmother Linda- who took her mother's place for the rest of the season. After Nationals, Chloe and Linda were asked to leave the team. Chloe was not present for season two until she made a one-off reappearance in I Wasn't Prepared For This.
Sam had been featured on the team since it was first created. During her time on the team she was often put in the shadows of Eleiyah and Tayluer, making her the underdog. Prior to the season two finale Charlotte announced her and Sam's departure from the show on twitter.
Poppy auditioned to fill in for Chloe Snr in Cabaret but was later brought in to have a duet with Aleah. However, the duet ended up being scratched the day before the competition as Poppy's mum didn't want to be part of the team.
In episode five Ali was brought in to be part of the "Phantom Of The Opera" group dance. Jennifer chose to invite him to get back at Team DB for entering a dancer who wasn't trained at their studio to compete against the JEDT solos the previous week. He was later invited back to re-perform the same group dance in the season two finale.
