Dianna Williams will be the first to tell you about her less than innocent past, but with her passion for dance, story of redemption and faith in God she is dedicating her life to giving young girls tools for a bright future.
Williams, the 35-year-old Jackson, Miss. native, is Lifetime network’s newest reality television star of the unique series “Bring It!” An accomplished dancer in multiple styles of dancing, the choreographer decided to open up her own studio called the Dollhouse Dance Factory in 2010 that houses the award-winning Dancing Dolls dance team.
The Dancing Dolls have won over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies. After discovering the Dancing Dolls on YouTube, Lifetime network will broadcast some of the ups and downs that come along with Williams’ dancers’ lives as they take part in hip-hop majorette competitions against worthy opposition.
Still, the Dancing Dolls’ founder and director insists that the series will offer so much more to the world than jaw dropping dance moves.
“Our show teaches life lessons. It is an in depth look into these kids lives and you see the struggle, the heartache,” Williams told The Christian Post. “There is some comic relief in there and a little bit of drama all mixed together. On the show we talk about so much from the relationships with the parents, to the relationships with me and how important it is to go to school and have faith in God.”
The Dancing Dolls consist of girls age 7 to 17-years-old, who Williams does not hesitate to give tough love. She explained the importance of giving girls at that age an outlet that will keep them out of trouble.
“With teen pregnancy on the rise our girls need something that they can do, something that’s positive. Community dance teams such as myself, which there are a lot here in Jackson, is keeping kids off of the streets,” Williams told CP. “It gives them a sense of pride and determination. These kids know that they have to be academically successful plus they know they have those extra mentors and counselors to push them to be great.”
Although Williams has been dancing since she was 3-years-old, she admits that the sport did not always keep her out of trouble when she was growing up. At 19-years-old, Williams became involved in participating in adult films.
