"The Prancing Elites Project" is a reality series on Oxygen features an African American, gay and gender non-conforming dance team that challenges societal norms while overcoming several obstacles with passion and wit on their journey to be their authentic selves.

The dance team is comprised of Adrian Clemons, Kentrell Collins, Kareem Davis, Jerel Maddox and Timothy Smith. The series delves into the personal lives of these five best friends in Mobile, Alabama as they fight to be accepted in the female-dominated dance culture of J-Setting.

Currently excluded from competitions and banned from participating in several hometown and national parades, The Prancing Elites seek other ways to showcase their talent from dancing in the stands at college football games to performing on a boat cruise. Despite professional rejections, family disapproval and tensions, personal health crises and heartbreak, the group won't let anything stand in their way as they continue to lift one another up and band together in the face of adversity. Hoping to build a name for themselves outside the walls of Mobile, this dream team is determined to see their name in lights and go wherever the music takes them.

Season 2

The Prancing Elites have begun to defy the odds and find success and acceptance in the South, but as they head home to hone their skills, they start exploring who they are as individuals pulling their focus away from the group. Following his HIV revelation, Kareem is happy, healthy, and trying to move forward with his new boyfriend, who happens to be a member of The Prancing Elites' biggest competitor. While Kentrell questions Kareem's loyalty, he continues to pursue the idea of fatherhood and whether he is ready to make his dream a reality. On the side, Jerel works to expand his make-up artistry business trying to gain additional exposure through comedic online videos.

Tim further comes to terms with her sexuality and how she defines herself. As she gains confidence with who she is, Adrian helps her find the courage to confront her family about acceptance. Continuing to spread this message, Adrian takes outside choreography opportunities, working one-on-one with an all-female dance troupe struggling with body image issues. Performance invitations come in, but with each Elite dedicating less time to the team, Kentrell is realizing their biggest competitor might just be themselves. Can the music keep The Prancing Elites focused and on track so that they can find success in the spotlight once again?

"The Prancing Elites Project" is produced by Crazy Legs Productions with Tom Cappello and Alana Goldstein serving as executive producers.
