MOMENTS | Mash-up: Non-Gender Conforming Prancing Elites is the Cheerleading x Voguing Dance Team That’s J-Stepping to End Adversity

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

If you can’t get behind The Prancing Elites, a black gay dance team from Mobile, Alabama, it’s quite possible you had a brain tumor for breakfast. The dance troupe’s signature dance style is called J-Setting, or as Elite member Adrian explains, “It’s like a cheerleading and voguing combined in one with a lot of pelvic thrusting.” And if you still don’t quite know what that means, Beyoncé introduced J-setting to the mainstream via her legendary “Single Ladies” music video. Of course, The Prancing Elites have routines that also include other styles like twerking, classical ballet and the classic death drop. Their new reality show The Prancing Elites Project just debuted on the US Oxygen network, and the first episode demonstrates just how important it is that this quintet is J-Setting their way towards equality and right into our hearts (obviously).

MOMENTS | Mash-up: Watch FKA twigs’ Self-Directed Music Video For “Glass & Patron”

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

For the upcoming YouTube Music Awards, FKA twigs directed her music video for “Glass & Patron,” a new track from an EP that will be released later this year. The music video begins with a pregnant Twigs who then gives birth to colorful scarves that morph into, as stated in the press release, “the most epic vogue battle of all time.” “Glass & Patron” was also co-written and co-produced by Boots, who also made an appearance in FKA twigs’ Google Glass ad. “Glass & Patron” is one of 13 new videos presented by the 2015 YouTube Music Awards, but we think this one might be our favorite.
