Dancer Status Joined Left Notes
Tayluer Amos Active S1, E0 Has Not Left Tayluer has been shown to be Jennifer's number one girl since the start of the show. Due to this, fans of the show often refer to her as the "UK Maddie".
Eleiyah Navis Active S1, E0 Has Not Left 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 Fenton Active S1, E0 Has Not Left 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.
Aleah Simpson Active S1, E0 Has Not Left Aleah is evidently the weakest dancer on the team due to her lack of experience. Jennifer often pulls her out of the group dances because of this.
Leah Rose Kennedy Active S2, E2 Has Not Left 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 Smallman Recurring S2, E1/S2, E8 S2, E2/TBA 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.

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.
Molly Thorpe-Franklin Dismissed S1, E0 S2, E8 9 Molly had been part of the team since it's creation but was dismissed prior to No-one's Safe due to her being one of the bottom two on the final pyramid in It's The Dance World Cup.
Sam Dennis Left S1, E0 S2, E8 17 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.
