The Prancing Elites are a Mobile, Ala.-based, all-black, gay and gender non-conforming dance troupe. The five dancers dress in sequins and bodysuits, make-up and heels, and perform a type of dance called J-setting.
Now they are the subjects of a new reality show on the Oxygen network called "The Prancing Elites Project." Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with three members of the Prancing Elites: Kentrell Collins, Jerel Maddox and Kareem Davis.
Correction: An earlier version of this interview misstated the name of the college where J-setting originated. It originated at Jackson State University, not Jacksonville State.
