"Bring It" is a new reality show on Lifetime and before you roll your eyes at yet another reality TV show, you have to see the show first. "Bring It" gives you a behind the scenes look at the elite world of hip-hop majorette competitions.
Forget about the watered down Hollywood movie version of this urban dance phenomenon you get to see where this art form was orginated and still practiced with fierceness!
"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.
All of this happens at the Dancing Dols in Jackson, Missisissippi and is supervised and managed by the head Doll her self Dianna "Miss D" Williams. This Diva is beyond fierce!
You cannot compare "Bring It" to "Dance Moms" because that would be like comparing the ocean to the kiddy pool. These young girls are fierce!
And don't get me started on the moms because there is no momma drama like black momma drama...LOL.
But serisously what makes this show stand out is that it gives us a peek into many of the organizations within the black community that reinforce values like hard work, discipline, competion, sef-esteem and team work.
Many of us who participated in similar organizations will see our mentors in the no non-sense firm leadership style of the fearless head Doll, "Miss D."
I was very moved by "Miss D" sharing her own struggles as a young woman that led her to make some poor choices and how that is why she is committed to being an advocate for these young women.
If you want to get served some serious attitude and dance moves then you have got to watch "Bring It" on Lifetime on Wednesdays 10/9 central!
