WATCH THIS The Prancing Eiltes Project Premieres Tonight!By Delaina Dixon | April 22, 2015 | Entertainment
Everyone has the right to dance. And for these five men of Oxygen’s new series The Prancing Elites Project — premiering tonight — it’s their salvation.
Adrian, Kentrell, Kareem, Jerel and Timothy are black, gay and living in the south. That’s already a challenge. But this soulful crew want to prance and dance — decked out in full dance squad attire. They want their creative expression to make people happy, though some just can’t seem to understand. But for ever naysayer, there are those with bigger hearts who support the boys as they express themselves freely.
We got to meet the team at the Oxygen Upfront and it was easy to tell their hearts are as full as their high kicks. After a rousing performance to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” they┬á expressed their gratitude of being embraced by the network, and hopefully by the nation as they share their story.
We’ll be watching!
The Prancing Elites Project series premiere airs Wednesday, April 22 at 10 on Oxygen.
