Alabama's Gay 'Prancing Elites' Dance Troop Kicks Off Reality Series Tonight on Oxygen: VIDEOS

Prancingelites

Towleroad readers may recall the Prancing Elites, a dance team from Alabama which caused controversy after appearing in a local Christmas parade.

2_prancingelitesOne onlooker told FOX10 at the time: "I was outraged and appalled. I never expect anything like this at the Semmes Christmas parade. If they were gonna put this kind of activity in the parade, they should have notified the people of Semmes so that we had a choice whether we wanted out children to attend and see something like that."

Now the troop is the subject of a reality series, The Prancing Elites Project, on Oxygen which premieres tonight at 10/9c. From its synopsis:

Set in the high-stakes world of Southern dance teams, this show chronicles the story of the Prancing Elites—an all-male competitive dance team in Mobile, Alabama who are looking to go from a one-click-wonder to a national sensation. With big personalities and even more heart, these five best friends will navigate the pitfalls of stardom and interpersonal drama all while attempting to break down the stereotypes and barriers put in their path towards success.

In tonight's episode, the group gets some encouragement from (and freaks out upon meeting) Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes.

Barker

Alice Barker, a 102-year-old former dancer who made movies, commercials and TV shows during the Harlem Renaissance of the '30s and '40s had never seen herself on film until just recently, when the folks at Tenfresh obtained some of the "soundies" she had appeared in and showed them to her.

Barker lit up upon seeing herself on film, laughing and remembering it:

"Making me wish I could get out of this bed and do it all over again."

Tenfresh notes that Barker is still alive and well:

If you'd like to send Alice fan mail we would love to see her get the adoration she deserves after so many years! (We'll do our best to read some of your comments to her as well.):

NFL Free Agent Michael Sam Invited to Veteran Combine, Says He's 'Getting the Hang' of Dancing: VIDEO

3_sam

NFL free agent defensive end Michael Sam has been invited to the first-ever veteran combine, ESPN reports:

The veteran combine will be held March 22 in Tempe, Arizona, less than a week after Sam is set to start competing on the latest season of ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," which starts March 16.

Sam was chosen last year in the seventh round of the draft by the St. Louis Rams but the team released him before the season began. He was later signed to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad but then waived.

The Veteran Combine is similar to the one held for potential draftees but it is for current NFL free agents like Sam.

Following the announcement this week that Sam would compete on Dancing With The Stars, he released a statement on Twitter:

Very excited to be a part of @DancingABC. Football remains my unquestioned number 1 priority, however, while I continue to train and stay ready, I am ecstatic to participate in a fun, athletic competition like so many players before me have done. Filming this offseason is very flexible and allows me to be part of the veterans combine 3/22 if accepted or any other workouts. I’m looking forward to getting started with @PetaMurgatroyd and winning! Thanks for the support! #TeamSambatroyd

Paparazzi stationed outside Dancing With The Stars rehearsals caught up with Sam this week as he arrived to rehearsals with fiancé Vito Cammisano in tow, and asked him which was tougher, dancing or the combine.

"Both," he replied.

They also asked if he has nailed his first dance yet:

"I think it's a secret right now. It's different from football. Peta's (Murgatroyd, his partner) doing a great job. She's bearing with me. It's different than football, clearly. But I'm getting the hang of it. It's fun. Great workout."

And what kind of advice he had for gay kids nervous to come out.

"Be on your truth. On your truth."
