As you may well know, "The Thrill of More than a Billion Eyes- The Prancing Jaycettes/J-settes" of Jackson State University have a very rich and talented lageacy... The organization itself was formed and founded in 1971, by former twirler and accomplished performer, Ms. Shirley Middleton-Blakely... The J-settes were formed from the twirler/majorette body that was already present within the band program many years before; thus transitioning into an outstanding dance performance unit in the fall of 1971.

There have been a number of powerful, strong, and memorable Prancing J-settes and captains throughout their 45 years of performing excellence, for which they are celebrating this year.

Whom are your favorite and/or memorable J-settes and captains?????

It appears the young ladies were about the same height back then, no “Short and Sassy"?

I hope the next captain actually takes the time to give us classic throwbacks this season.
I wanna see if this new squad can raise the bar and set a new standard. I want this season to be so great that we talk about it for years. Can't be any slackin or half steppin. From what I saw in 2015, Chloe seems to have the girls doing more dancing as opposed to stunting throughout the entire performance. Dom's era gave me a little old school vibe sort of like Michelle Spurlocks era (86' & 87'). High energy, poise, Grace, and some stunts here and there.
Well according to Charlotte the sponsor chooses what uniform will be worn not the captain

In the main post heading pic, all of these J-settes are actually short... Their poise, stature, and stance is what makes them look tall in the photo.

Wow, well that is a change... During my years Aquita and Niklia choose the uniforms that squad wore per game/performance.

I remember Ms. Worthy selecting uniforms for certain games/performances... And she would do that to make sure that the older uniform pieces would not fall apart on the J-settes, as they performed in them.
