Director, Angela Floyd, started Angels Kickline in 1992 to expose dancers and Knoxville to precision dance and the opportunity for more performances. Angels Kickline was quickly named “Knoxville’s answer to the New York City Rockettes” as they performed annually in the WIVK Christmas Parade, the Knoxville Dogwood Parade, Fantasy of Trees to benefit Children’s Hospital, and at the Historic Tennessee Theatre. In 1997, Angels Kickline retired the silver sequin long sleeve leotards with a pink flower appliqué for a classic white velour leotard with a cascade skirt and a green “Angels Kickline” sequin logo. Soon the “Angels Kickline” logo was removed and fur, feathers, other logos, hearts, bow ties, snowflakes, toy solider accessories, and numerous hats were added to create a new look for every occasion. Performance request were growing and Angels Kickline added the Farragut 4th of July Parade, The Knoxville Mardi Gras Parade, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, Buddy’s Race against Cancer, the Lion’s Walk for the Blind, Gatlinburg’s 4th of July Parade as the Texas Roadhouse Dancers, and the Louise Mandrell Christmas Show to their performance schedule.
In 1999, Ms. Floyd, founded Knoxville’s first competitive jazz company. The Knoxville Jazz Company gave dancers the opportunity to display their talents regionally, nationally, and internationally, the chance to take classes from master teachers and most importantly, the chance to grow individually and have fun while working with a team. Many dancers were a part of both Angels Kickline and The Knoxville Jazz Company and performance opportunities kept growing. The Knoxville Opera Gala, the Love Kitchen’s 25th Anniversary Celebration, many area Fall and Spring Festivals, Royal Caribbean Cruise Line, guest performers during Walt Disney World’s Magic Music Days, The Addy Awards, the Kodak Film Convention, the University of Tennessee Men’s Basketball Halftime Show, featured dancers during the Gaylord Music City Bowl Halftime Show, and most recently the Harlem Globetrotters came calling. The Knoxville Jazz Company has grown into the areas leading Competition Company with numerous Platinum Awards, Overall Awards, Choreography Awards, and Special Recognition in solo, duet/trio, and group routines. Many Company dancers have received scholarships to national conventions and Broadway Dance Center in NYC. Current and former dancers have been selected by audition for Tennessee Governors School for the Arts, New York City Rockette Summer Intensive in NYC, and the Broadway Dance Center Internship Program in NYC.
Today, Angels Kickline and The Knoxville Jazz Company have merged to form the Angela Floyd Dance Company. AFDC will continue the traditions, meaning, and legacy of Angels Kickline and The Knoxville Jazz Company.
