Bring It! is set in Jackson, Mississippi and features Coach Dianna "Miss D" Williams and her Dollhouse Dance Factory, home of Miss D's Dancing Dolls team,[6] which was founded in 2001. The troupe has over 15 Grand Champion titles and more than 100 trophies, and consists of children aged 10 to 17. The show additionally features the Baby Dancing Dolls, consisting of children under the age of 11.

The team competes in hip-hop majorette competitions,[6] with their main focus being on the Stand Battle (a routine where two teams face each additional and alternate "stands" (routines), which are called by the captain depending on what stand the additional team performs). The team slogan (both the Dancing Dolls and the Baby Dancing Dolls) is "Dancing Dolls For Life" (popularly shortened to DD4L, featured on much of their gear).

Rival dance teams featured on the show include: the Divas of Olive Branch (the Dolls main rival, due to the intense rivalry between Miss D and Divas coach Neva), the Prancing Tigerettes (from Memphis) and the Infamous Dancerettes (f/k/a Dynamic Diamond Dollz, additionally from Memphis), the Purple Diamonds (a cross-town Jackson rival), the YCDT Superstarz (from Miami) and new rival (from Tupelo, Mississippi) The Golden Prancerettes.

Similar to fellow Lifetime show Dance Moms, Bring It! features the moms of several of the dancers and their interactions (and occasional arguments) with Miss D. Notwithstanding unlike Dance Moms (where the moms are in a room above the studio watching the practices), the moms in Bring It! are featured outside the studio. In early seasons, the parents could only see what happens in practise through the studio windows; in later seasons Miss D has made a room for the parents to watch the girls through a tv screen. (Miss D doesn't allow parents inside the studio throughout practices, believing that the dancers need to have only one person – Miss D – leading them at those times.)
