“In the past 10 years, no other dance team has won as many trophies. Being a Dancing Dolls is not easy. You gotta be tough, if you want to make the cut. I expect nothing less than perfection for all my girls. In my studio there is no room for crying or complaining…I push these girls because I know they can go far.”

-Diana Williams, Dance Coach of Dancing Dolls

Dancing Dolls dance coach Diana Williams is one tough teacher. Bring It! is an one hour show jam packed with lots of yelling, tears, dancing, Diana Williams, Dancing Dolls and their parents. Many have already described this show as “the knock off Dance Moms” or “the black Dance Moms”, but here is what I got from the first episode.


The show, initially is a lot to take in all at once. You have Diana Williams screaming at the kids, the kids crying, the moms yelling at Williams, Williams lashing back, on top of watching these girls prepare for competition. Because the show is based around the girls preparing and performing at competition, you get to see the routines. The girls put in a lot of hard work and effort into their routines, but the dances that are being taught are inappropriate. All of the Dancing Dolls are girls between the ages of 9 and 13. As the viewer you are subject to watching little girls shake and smack their butts- something that is completely inappropriate for girls that age. Although the dancing is inappropriate, Williams is a great dance teacher. She continues to encourage and push these girls to put their all into what they do. She teaches them things like building tough skin, being confident in themselves, and putting all of their effort into everything they do, which are lessons that can be applied later on in life.

All in all Bring It is pretty entertaining and there is something that watchers can take away from this show-whether it be good or bad!

    I’ve heard dancing dolls is good but myself and thousands others are boycotting Lifetime until you cancel all of Abby Lee Millers shows and quit profiting off abusing children.

      Abby is not abusing children, she is just down right mean, and she would no way in hell yell at my kid, less more me, hell no. i don’t know how much her dance classes are, but they are probably very expensive, but no cost of fame, is worth some fat cow, yelling and yelling at the kids or their moms. Ever dancer does not make it to Julieart. Whatever they call it, we have ballet dancers that have killed there selves from eating disorders and dieting to death, nothing is worth that. you push and push and push, everybody is not going to be a start. Diana tell her girls this is a stepping stone for you to go our and write your own story, be what you want to be. It’s something they can enjoy, if the go to performaning arts school that’s great, if not, do something else.

    I am a very grown woman who loves dancing and witnessing my girls challenged to the farthest – not abused. The show “Bring it” is one of my favorites – why? I love a no-nonsense woman that can take charge; not just of teens but every part of her life. The young girls show alot of determination and I just pray their’re happy souls inside the shell. The instructor made a very valid point when the show first took off. She compared it too football players coach; they’re pushed to be the best – to win! Young ladies I just want to say, take all the tough talk and soft yelling (lol) where it;s needed. Don’t let a noise maker tear you up, laugh on the inside and let everyone know you are badd like that because you love what you do, that’s it! GOD BLESS

    Hi Mrs. D, Im charlotte, and I was looking up to kamryn because I think she’s a good role model. I was wondering if you could tell Kamryn that ” You are one of my favorite dancers of all time. You, Sunjai, and Kayla are my role models”.

    I love to watch Bring It!!..Especially being that they are Mississippians; it shows we have talent within the State of Mississippi. I have my DVR set to record if I have to work late because I don’t want to miss it. I was a little disappointed in the show tonight, but I am a DD4L fan for life.. GO Dancing Dolls!!!I have lots of creative ideas and would love to share them with my D.

    Although very little is expected from the state of MS. I’m still embarrassed and appalled by the behavior of the instructor, and parents. Ms. D, you are a poor example for a leader of young girls. I don’t know your level of education, however once you open your mouth it’s apparent. Obviously you didn’t finish Junior high. I often think of the old saying people don’t know how smart you are until you open your mouth. I know MS. has the highest drop rate, teenage pregnancy rate and highest infant death morality rate. Don’t you look bad enough without your show.

      Oh wow Denise! I don’t know why I get so appalled by ignorant comments like your comment above. Ms. Williams is a talented dancer, a business owner, has a college degree and most of all a role model to many young girls in Jackson, MS. I applaud her efforts to lead the girls to be strong, get their educations and not make bad decisions.

      People like you with your ignorant comments make MS and the world period look bad. FYI…before you come at me, I have a BA and a MPA. So, I passed Jr. High a long time ago.

        The only thing Denise did with her comments was show how ignorant SHE is and that not much should be expected from HER. You can tell because she opened her mouth.

    I’m looking for a dance troupe that teaches dance similar to DD4L!I’m in the NW Arkansas area, like Fayetteville. My daughter is 7. We love DD4L and anything dance related except for dancing with the stars.

    I think it is wonderful that there are dance teachers who spend their time working with these girls. They develop a skill, learn to work with others, become leaders and still keep their grades up so they can to college. Where would these girls be otherwise? Hanging out in the streets? We need more clubs like BRING IT, JUMP.

    When I first saw “Bring It” I was shocked. But it is a southern thing. Now I love it. Ms D loves to win just as much as Abby Lee but she has the teaching techniques to really teach and inspire. yes those little girls shake it but it is a cultural thing. If they came to Dallas I would love to go to s competition.

    I love this show. I don’t know what show the original reviewer was watching, but it isn’t the same one I watch. I find Bring It! to be original, entertaining and fun to watch. I find nothing vulgar or inappropriate about it. And, trust me, I don’t watch reality shows because they are generally stupid, insulting, vulgar and have no redeeming value. Bring It! does. I’ve rarely seen a kid cry – only when their interfering mothers put pressure on them or when they know they have screwed up. Kids need to be taught that they don’t get a trophy or rewarded just for showing up. Life IS hard work and the sooner they learn it, the better off they will be.
