Prancing Elites dance their way into Pride parade

UPDATE | It wasn't the Prancing Elites and it wasn't with the Hawks. We apologize for the mistake.


The Prancing Elites were scheduled to take part in the parade and march with a contingent from the Atlanta Hawks. But the dance troupe didn't make it. We searched the parade lineup to figure out the identity of the group we misidentified, but haven't been able to sort it out. We've reached out to Atlanta Pride to help us correctly identify them.


ORIGINAL STORY | Twirling dance divas and reality TV stars the Prancing Elites marched on through the Atlanta Pride parade on Sunday, injecting their spirit into the big gay parade. 

The group from Mobile, Ala., went viral thanks to a video of their high-energy routine during a basketball game in 2013. Then there was that troubled Christmas parade in December 2013. And since, they've turned the attention into an appearance on “America's Got Talent” and better still, a ratings-grabbing “The Prancing Elites Project” on Oxygen. So popular, in fact, that the network announced a second season of the reality as the first season wrapped up this summer.
