DD4L! DD4L! DD4L!
If you understand what that means then you just like me are a fan of the new Lifetime series "Bring It."
On March 5, Lifetime premiered their new dance competition docu-series called “Bring It!” at 10 pm ET/PT. The series follows Jackson, Ms. majorettes, the Dancing Dolls Troupe, coached by no-nonsense Dianna Williams, also known as Miss. D.
The Dancing Dolls Troupe refuse to lose, pushing themselves to the limit each week in the relentless pursuit of victory. Every pump, thrust and high kick on “Bring It!” highlights the triumphs and struggles of intense competition, where errors aren’t tolerated, mediocrity isn’t excused and only a win is acceptable.
Miss D. founded the troupe in 2001 in Jackson, Mississippi. The group, with girls ages 7-17, are said to be one of the best troupes in the country with over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies to their name. Each episode will follow the girls and their mothers as they prepare for parades, showcases and competitions with some of their biggest rivals.
Now if you attended an HBCU then you recognize the dancing of the Dancing Dolls. Whether you've seen Bethune Cookman's14 Karat Gold dancers, Jackson State's the Prancing J-Settes, Southern University's Dancing Dolls, Albany State's Passionettes then you know these are some dancing sistas who show up and show out.
Do you watch the show? I would love to know what you think.
"Bring It" comes on Lifetime on Wednesdays at 10 PM EST. Check your local listings.
