Dianna Williams is known for her majorette community dance team, Dancing Dolls. They have traveled state to state by showing their etiquette style and much determination that they are that team. Williams has announced that she will be going on the Bring it On Live tour that is set to kick off on June 22 in Savannah, GA. We have caught up with the Jackson native and talked about how she began coaching, how she pick the Dolls and more.
RESPECT.: Tell us how did you begin coaching? Were you a fan of dancing?
I became a coach in the inner city of Jackson, Mississippi by having the opportunity to do something positive within the community. There are girls, who are pregnant in their teens, and needed to get out of trouble. It is not popular in the city to dance, and they are limited to travel, so I created a community dance team for them to travel.
RESPECT.: What/Who was your inspiration in beginning to dance?
The reason why I keep doing dance is because I get so much love from it. The community appreciates and cares by me making an impact with the kids.
RESPECT.: Define RESPECT.
Earned, not given. By carrying yourself and treating others.
RESPECT.: For the people who look up to you, can you give them some advice?
Life is by being in the public eye. There is a fine line between personal and business and there are boundaries. You can be mind-confused and body-shuffled by taking a step back to see what is happening around you. You have to be sure that you love what you do everyday instead of giving up by investing financially, praying and crying on the regular.
RESPECT.: What’s your promotion and sponsorship event that you did for the High school girls?
Doll Face Academy is created to keep the crown. To have young ladies to keep their crown on their head to hold the world. No man will ever possess to give life, carry, bake and cook the child. It means beautiful and confidence within a person by being a great individual. With your drive, heart and passion come from your best ideas. We help by building and writing resumes, entrepreneurship, life and social skills and everyday skills for the job that they want.
This past Saturday, we selected two stellar students who attends Stone Mountain for Doll Face Academy prom giveaway. We took care of the dresses, travel, manicure, pedicure and hair. One of the students gave away her gift to one of her peers because she felt like she needed it.
I want to give a shout out to Lovely Mimi for getting the girls nails done and meeting them. Kenya Nicole for taking the photos; Tyanna Renee for doing their hair; Deaira Horton for the videography; Derek Hill, who is the President of the organization, who has helped put this together and also I can’t forget the owners of Cinderella Gown who donated the prom dresses. We appreciate them!
RESPECT.: Since you will be touring soon with your dolls, tell us how you pick the dolls? Is there a process?
Every dancer goes through an audition process. There are certain walks and dances we do. I trust my judges, who are the panels, but also I have my own panel. With the main judges, I trust them with the criteria that I choose.
RESPECT.: What can we expect for the Bring It Live tour?
A dance battle extreme. All dances will be new that never been featured. Ninety percent of the dances are brand new and alumni’s are new to the tour. We have been waiting for them to join us. It will be live energy and fun!
