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.

  1. This is total trash. Where did Diana study dance. Lifetime should be ashamed of themselves and every professional dance teacher should publicly protest the degrading form of dance that this group is performing. Notice Miss D is a “dance coach”, not a “dance instructor”!

    • to Ms. Lynn Lewis, First maybe you don’t know the creative styles of dance. Then again maybe you don’t understand the positive message of team work that these young ladies are learning, Then again mayabe you don’t understand what it take for someone to come out of the darkness of hell and totally give themselves back to God. Do you know what it takes to run a dance company like this. Do you know the benefit that these girls get from “daily exercise” that our youth really need. There is so many positive things from this show for the kids to learn plus it get them away from the TV and internet. I (don’t like the parents acting a fool). But Diana, yes she is a little bit much BUT she is without a dout the kind of coach I would want my daughter to be coach by.She gets the best out of them. Ms. Diana is a beast (and I mean this in a good way). She cares about them girls and she’s a winner! They (girls) will be ready for anything . Diana give them the taste of the real world. Remind me of my football coach. So let’s not judge someone for doing something positive. I see nothing wrong with this program, I hope they keep it. GOD BLESS YOU Ms. Diana Williams.

    • Amen! It’s an embarrassment to those who actually study dance. It’s total “shake your booty” time.

    • Is it because a shes ayoung black woman doing positive things and you at home possibly drawing social security.

  2. This is for the last message posted. you should be ashamed of yourself. every time someone tries to better themselves there is someone like you there to try and knock them back down. First the dancing that their doing is a style its called hip hop and is recognized and taught throughout all dance studios, schools, and instructors/coaches. and as for Ms. Dianna Williams I am so proud of her. and you should be to. she has walked away from the darkness and entered the light of god and now she is doing something positive and trying to teach our young people a different way. so therefore at the end of the day you should be ashamed of yourself trying to knock her down for changing, trying, and doing something positive for our youth. as for me Ms. Dianna don’t stop, keep doing what your doing . if you ask me we need more Ms. Dianna’s in this world. GOOO D.D.4.L!!! GOD BLESS

  3. I agree. Being positive is a great Motivator in Life. Actions speak louder than words Miss Lynn. Dianna is taking action while you’re just-What are you doing-Oh yeah being Negative.

  4. I live in England and enjoy watching this show (Bring It) whenever I can. I particularly enjoy Dianna’s energy and her tough love approach. I understand that Dianna or “Miss D” as she is fondly known is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea or please everyone, because of her controversial style of dance teaching, but at the end of the day she is at least doing something positive in the lives of these young girls/ladies, some of which would probably be on the streets or otherwise spending their time in less positive activities. It is such a shame that there still people out there who are hell bent on writing negative comments about this lady. Perhaps we should all take a good look at ourselves and be a little less judgemental of others. The Bible says “let him without sin cast the first stone”.

  5. DD4l I love this show!! I support this show!! And the rest of u are haters and guess what Mrs. D made it and that’s all that matters!! If people would stop hating the world would be a better place!!
