Come see for yourself why more than 7700 families have chosen Angela Floyd Schools for their performing arts education since 1997. AFS was ahead of the game in March as they immediately prepared with live virtual lessons via zoom for all students during their regularly scheduled classes.
Additionally, a virtual studio website was set up for all current students to have access to more material than ever before and was an excellent hub for students looking for the above and beyond experience.
Here’s what parents are saying:
“My daughter has been dancing with Angela Floyd for the past 9 years. We have been pleased with her progress and dance knowledge she has learned over the past 9 years. Most recently, I have been very impressed with how they have handled the pandemic and the precautions they have taken to not impact the students’ learning and still allowed them to have a spring concert in the summer. We are very happy with Angela Floyd and the level of professionalism of their teachers and staff while still keeping it fun for the students.” – Jennifer Braun
“We are so happy to be part of the Angela Floyd Family! Our daughter attends the performing arts preschool program and we are thrilled with it. Ms. Karen and Mr. Alex are wonderful teachers and we cannot believe how much she learns not only in dance and music but academically as well. We are beyond impressed with how they have handled the COVID situation. They presented virtual options so quickly and it was nice to have a bit of normalcy in our routine and continue with classes online. Our daughter has taken all of the summer camps and we felt super safe with the safeguards they had in place and she was thrilled to be back in the studio. I danced when I was younger and have always wanted to take a class again but didn’t want to be with younger kids. I was so excited when I found out they have an adult ballet class. I love my night out with women my age enjoying the art of dance. This year I have added the adult jazz class and am very excited about it! If you are looking for a home studio for yourself or your child look no further!” – Lauren Therrien
“My daughter started dance classes at Angela Floyd When she was 3 years old. It’s 8 years later and she could not imagine life without this studio! The staff and instructors are the best around and the friendships she has made are priceless. The learning environment at AFS has really fostered her love of dance and given her confidence outside the studio. And they have navigated what 2020 has thrown at them without missing a beat. Hands down the best studio in Knoxville!” – Ashley Thomas
“Even despite the onset of huge changes brought by the unforeseen challenges in 2020, AFS consistently strived to provide structure, alternative teaching methods, and lots of fun for our kids. AFS is an outstanding school and once again proved this with their dedication to giving our children the gifts of dance and music while making it all easy for the parents. The spring recitals were a success! We are so blessed to have AFS and the remarkable staff and teachers!” – Julie Eisenhower
“One goal I had for my son Atticus was to find him a music class. We tried two other music programs before finding the Angela Floyd School. I wanted a class that was technical even though my child was just 2 years old. I started to think my expectations were too high. Then Atticus tried his first music class at the Angela Floyd School. When he came out of class he was smiling and showed me what he had learned during that class. Next his teacher, Ms. Sydney explained what they worked on in class and homework we could work on until the class. Ms. Sydney is a great teacher and is very patient with her students. You can tell she has a great passion for music and teaching others. The school has dates on the schedule where parents can observe the last ten minutes of their child’s class. I was blown away at the things he knew in addition to what we worked with him on at home. We love this school and look forward to our daughter Everest joining when she turns two.” – Stacy Littlejohn
