  • Hollis Pippin: Hollis Pippin was born on May 03, 1950. He grew up in Jackson, Mississippi—where he graduated from the historic Brinkley High School in 1968. In the fall of ‘68, Pippin attended Jackson State College. As an avid dancer, Pippin served as a drum major for JSC’s marching band as a freshman. Pippin went on to twirl as a featured twirler, choreograph for the Prancing Jaycettes (J-Settes) as well as serve as a member of a vocal group—the Soul Train Gang. His accolades extend what is stated. I pay homage to Mr. Pippin. @jacksonstateu #ancestors #bucking #jsettes #sonicboomofthesouth #afrocentric #afrofuturist #hbcu #hbcugrad #blackexcellence #americansoul #twirler #choreographer #theeilove #hbcudance

The 1993-1994 Prancing J-Settes .
I wonder if they knew that these counts would be legendary. Unchanged...And Yet Unchallenged. The Prancing J-Settes have never only been a bucking squad. You see that form! Song: Imagination-Al Jarreau

Jackson State University

Pictured: The 1968 Majorettes of Jackson State College. Hangin’ Em High....These women are the predecessors of the Prancing Jaycettes (J-Settes). For many years, JSC produced talented twirlers. JSU kept the tradition going by maintaining featured twirlers which mainly consisted of one to three people. #foreverprancing #jsettes #prancingjaycettes #jaycettes #lawofattraction #hbcudance #hbcudanceaffair #hbcubands #throwbacktime #hangemhigh #twirlers #collegetwirlers #beychella #beyonce #solange #sonicboomofthesouth #thrillofabillioneyes #unchangedandyetunchallenged #afrofuturism #blacktothefuture #afroblue @jsujsettes @sonicboom_ots @jacksonstateu

Southern University and A&M College - Baton Rouge, LA

In 1965, the Southern University Marching Band added a feature to its halftime show. Unlike most schools, Southern University Marching Band only consisted of male students. The creation of the Southern Belles—a majorette line—added 6 young ladies that would accompany the drum major in leading the band into the games. In the Fall of 1969, the Southern Belles were rebranded as the Dancing Dolls. The Dancing Dolls has produced phenomenal talent—professional cheerleaders, professional dancers, and choreographers. The legacy continues on into present-day. The 2019 Dancing Dolls will be the 50th dance line to dance under the namesake. Congratulations on 50 years of excellence in dance.
