Alabama: Male Dancing Troupe 'Prancing Elites' Booed During & After Christmas Parade Perfromance
The Prancing Elites, the all male dance troupe from Mobile, Alabama that we told you about back in June, have found themselves at the center of the South's attention.
Though the group was approved to perform at the Christmas parade in nearby Semmes, their appearance drew jeers and offensive remarks from the crowd.
"Some of them were saying stuff like Oh my God, what's that?" dancer Adrian Clemons said.
"I would rather you pull us to the side and say, hey that's probably not a good idea for you guy to march. Okay we can accept that," dancer Jerel Maddox said.
Claudia Davis was at the parade with her daughter.
"I was outraged and appalled. I never expect anything like this at the Semmes Christmas parade," Davis said.
Like many others in the crowd Davis felt the dance group was inappropriate.
"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," Davis said.
"We do want to apologize if we offended anybody who did not know who we were before today, but still at the end of the day, we only just came to dance and we did get invited," Colllins said.
