‘Bring It!’ to tape at LIC Landing today


Oct. 14, 2016 By Hannah Wulkan

A popular reality show is filming at LIC Landing today, taking advantage of the Manhattan views as a backdrop for a dance competition.

Bring It!, a reality show about a Mississippi-based dance team competing around the country, is filming a competition live at 11:30 a.m. in Gantry Plaza State Park today.

The dance faceoff will be between the Dancing Dolls team, which the show follows, and a Brooklyn-based team called Strut N Strive.

“When filming a show about New York, there are no better views of the city than here,” said Frank Raffaele, the owner of Coffeed at LIC Landing. “It will be a great opportunity to show off Queens and show off the Landing.”

Raffaele said that he expects hundreds of people to come out to the filming.

Bring It! airs on Lifetime every Friday at 9 p.m. and features coach Miss D teaching the dancers, all between the ages of 10 and 17, and shows them competing throughout the country.
