The Jesuit Jayettes are happy to announce the 41 dancers (listed below) that make up the team for the 2020–2021 academic year. The Jayettes would also like to welcome their new coaches, Chloe Crosby and MaQue Hollins, to the team. They are sad to say goodbye to their coach for the 2019-20 team, Sydney Greshem, but would like to wish her success in all her future endeavors.

Due to unusual circumstances, round one of tryouts was held via video submission and consisted of 86 girls. Round two tryouts were held in the Benson Arena on Saturday, May 23, with a total of 56 girls hoping to fill one of the 41 available spots. The girls tried out for the team in front of a panel of three judges whose dance experience in both performance and coaching allowed for a professional evaluation. Jayette hopefuls were judged on the execution of a dance that was learned via video and Zoom live stream.
