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.
Tayluer is often referred to as the "UK Maddie" due to Jennifer's favoritism towards her. Since day one Tayluer has proved herself to be a hardworking dancer who craves perfection. Tayluer remained on the team until the show's conclusion.
Eleiyah is Tayluer's biggest rival and is determined to come out on top instead of being second best. She practices day and night to make she's always on her A game. Eleiyah remained on the team until the show's conclusion.
Chloe is the youngest dancer on the team but despite this, Jennifer describes her as a being her "prodigy". Chloe has shown that she doesn't let anyone get in her way when it comes to first place. Chloe remained on the team until the show's conclusion.
Aleah is evidently the weakest dancer on the team, due to her lack of experience. However, this doesn't stop Aleah from working her hardest to try and improve. Aleah remained on the team until the show's conclusion.
Leah Rose was first introduced at the crisis auditions in One Man Down: Crisis Auditions, however, this was her only appearance in the first season. Leah Rose was later brought in as part of the reserve team in season two. After impressing Jen in the Work group dance, she was added to the main team the following week. Leah Rose remained on the team until the shows conclusion.
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. Despite this, Harry and his mother returned for the season finale.
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 tried out for the open spot on the team at the crisis auditions. Regardless of Jen not picking anyone in the end, Poppy was invited back to do a duet with Aleah. The duet however, ended up being scratched the day before the competition due to her mother not wanting 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.
