Teaching the Art of Dance and Music in Knoxville Since 1997
Mission: To inspire families in East Tennessee by connecting them to the art of dance and music.
As a parent, we realize you have a choice between several different dance and music schools. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facilities and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.
This is a review specifically for the Angela Floyd Performing Arts Preschool program. We moved to this area 4 years ago. We have 2 young children and have experienced Angela Floyd Schools, Concord Christian, Trinity Learning Center, Primrose, and Morning Star. By far the best experience has been Angela Floyd. If you have a 3 or 4 year old child, below are just some reasons as to why they are the best!: The Teachers: The school has a female and a male teacher and they are amazing! Both are incredibly talented people with years of experience. Unlike many other schools, you see the teachers every day at drop off and pickup, and they’re always available to answer questions and to update you on how your child is doing. The Ratio: The school is made up of just 1 class room, and typically there are 10 to 12 students. They have 2 teachers and an office assistant who often helps out as well. From a student to teacher ratio, you can’t find better than that. The Academics: Before I get to the performing arts piece, I am amazed at how much they teach at this school. After attending 2 years at Angela Floyd, our daughter entered CAK reading at a 4th grade level. I often worked on her reading at home, but letters and letter sounds were reinforced every day she went to school. And at that age, reinforcement is the key and we’re grateful that she received it. Our son (age 4) is also currently in the program, and he too has started reading. Performing Arts: I mean, how cool is it that they get to start learning music at the age of 3 and 4? And they get to learn the beauty of dance in all its forms and put on regular shows for us parents to watch (which are always fun to attend). And of course there’s the big recital performance at the end of the year, where the preschoolers steal the show! The Parents: Some of our greatest friends have come from the parents that we met through the program. And because you sit with the parents for a few minutes in the lobby before and after pickup, you really get the opportunity to create great bonds. In essence, if you’re contemplating where to send your child for preschool, look no further. For the ages of 3 and 4 years old, Angela Floyd Schools are by far the best preschool option in the area. Are daughter (now age 6) continued her love for performing arts and now plays the piano, takes voice lessons, and attends 2 different dance classes weekly at AFS. Our son wants to learn drums with Mr. Alex when he turns 5, and will also continue with dance. It’s been a great program for our family, and hopefully will be an incredible opportunity for those of you reading this review! – Andre Therrien
