ABOUT ANGELA FLOYD
PERFORMING ARTS MENTOR AND FOUNDER OF ANGELA FLOYD SCHOOLS
Successful business leader and advisor to thousands of students and families since 1997. Angela leverages her unique access to top leaders in the industry to produce the insights and strategies most critical for performing arts students. She can help them safely navigate today’s unprecedented challenges and identify unique opportunities to make their big positive impact on our world. Angela’s parents put her in ballet and tap lessons at the age of three knowing it was her passion, but probably not knowing it would be her life. Since the age of 9 she has also had a passion for playing the flute and still loves to play music from the 70’s. Angela was one of the youngest principle dancers with The Knoxville Ballet Company and head majorette with The Pride of the Southland Band at UT. Not only has her choreography been seen for years in front of 107,000 people at Neyland Stadium, but she also choreographed for the Grammy Award winners “The Impressions” for their tribute to Curtis Mayfield on the NBC Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In addition, she choreographed and performed for many years with “Seventeen Magazine” fashion shows. She was selected by The City Ballet/Tulsa Ballet to be their Children’s Rehearsal Coach when this professional ballet company was a part of the Knoxville arts scene. Angela and her family pride themselves on offering their students and parents the best quality facility, instructors, and office personnel. Angela Floyd Schools are pleased to have unprecedented customer satisfaction. Dance and Music is her life and it is her passion to share this with you and your family.
Angela Floyd Schools’ History in Knoxville
Since 1997 over 9100 students have taken dance or music lessons at our two different locations, more than at any other studio in West and North Knoxville. We started as a very small school but have grown to become the largest dance and music school in Knoxville. Besides dance lessons with classes in tap, classical ballet, jazz, and hip hop, we also have music lessons featuring private instruction: voice lessons, guitar lessons, drum lessons, piano lessons, keyboard lessons, violin lessons, viola lessons, cello lessons, saxophone lessons, ukulele lessons, and flute lessons.
We do not believe we are the best because we’re the biggest. Instead, we believe we’re the biggest because families think we are the best. Read our reviews to see and hear what our students and parents are saying.
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.
Today, as back in 1997, there are several different studios to choose from. We invite you to compare all of the features and options to see why our school has been chosen more than any other dance and music school.
What Our Families Are Saying About Us……
“We love Angela Floyd School! This is our 3rd year with them and our daughter really enjoys it so much. Very impressed with the level of professionalism and class the performances are done with. The costumes are always beautiful and in good taste and the level of instruction is wonderful! We are proud to be part of the Angela Floyd Dance family!” – Steve Whitt
“Our daughter is so shy, but has really come out of her shell at Angela Floyd. We are on year 2, and I’m sure we will have plenty more years to go! We wouldn’t go anywhere else!” – Jade Ramsey
“Our daughter loves her music lessons! The staff are amazing to work with and she will likely continue going for years to come.” – Charaya Upton
“My daughter has been taking voice from Mr. Daniel with AFS for almost two years. She absolutely loves it and I can’t say enough good things about it. My daughter has high functioning autism and Mr. Daniel is so good with her. He is patient and kind and understands how to work with her. He has not only improved her vocal skills, but she is now more confident in her ability to communicate overall. I highly recommend AFS for anyone looking for voice lessons.” – Megan Williams
“My 2.5 year old has stayed home with me throughout Covid. We put her in preschool hip hop because she loves to dance, but also for social interaction and to start learning how to pay attention to teachers. After just a couple of months, I can’t speak more highly of AFS and their teachers! Watching the classes on zoom and seeing her progress as well as how wonderful the teachers are with her… it just makes my heart so happy. My daughter also takes a private music fun class with Ms. Colleen here and she talks about it all week!! She just loves the class, her teacher and learning music!” – Kelly Maglaya
