We signed our daughter up for dance with Angela Floyd, Once we seen all they were doing was having play time in the dance studio we decided to enroll her somewhere else. When we confronted them about the issue they told us it would not be like that all the time we were paying a lot for each class. We could have taken our daughter to the park and movie for the amount it cost to attend that class. When the next month passed they charged us again for the classes. We asked them about this and they told us it was there policy that you had to have a 30 day withdrawn document. They would not cancel over the phone. They required us to come down there, well I live in East Knoxville and that was a 30 min drive. There is no reason they could not cancel it on the phone except they wanted to make it hard to cancel. When I got there the lady was not available, how convenient, to help me withdraw. So I had to make a second trip a few days later. The following month they charged us again for the classes when we confronted them they said we cancelled after the cut-off date. So we basically paid for 3 months for our daughter to go to the classes 3 times. I tried to speak to the owner but she would not call back. There is a lot of other dance providers in Knoxville so you might want to stay clear of this one, I could see going there if they were the only place in town but since there is others I would stay clear. You want a friendly provider.

We have been so pleased with our experience at Angela Floyd Schools! This is our fourth year at this studio, third year on one of their competition teams, and our first year joining the music school. The staff is organized and efficient in handling the day to day business of the studio. We have been so impressed with the teachers. They are qualified and come from dance backgrounds. They are very genuine and care for the child’s dance education. From day one, they have taught proper dance vocabulary for the dance movements. While the teachers bring a fun approach to teaching they also are serious in teaching proper technique. Our daughter started piano this year and we have been so pleased with her progress. The one-on-one experience with her teacher has been priceless. The teacher is so engaging and each week brings a contagious excitement under which our daughter has thrived. So, if you are looking for a studio to call home, look no further. You will not be disappointed.
I'm new in town, went to their Friday night dance party and had such a blast!! What a super-friendly group of people, and that floor is just amazing to dance on.
Beautiful facilities and very friendly and welcoming staff. You should definitely check it out.
Group dances are fun. Very welcoming instructors and environment
A five star experience for both the audience and the performers. My daughter is beginning her second year with GO! and we couldn't be more pleased! It is amazing to see how much the dancers grow in just one year with this fantastic company. The performances incorporate the techniques of ballet, pointe, contemporary ballet, modern, jazz and tap. If you haven't seen a GO! production yet, don't waist another minute!
This is, hands down, the best dance studio in Knoxville. I cannot say enough about the level of professionalism and instruction. It is incredible! The end of the year recital is breathtaking as is every production the studio puts together. Dancers of all levels excel with excellent instruction that encourages growth and emphasizes strong dance technique.
This is our first year as members of Go! Contemporary. We have over the past 5 years enjoyed their story telling performances. Unbelieveable the caliber and talent. My daughter auditioned this year. The process of the audition was professional. My daughter experienced a true audition. We were pleased she was selected for the apprentice group. The time/talent is beyond spectacular. This nonprofit dance company is bringing amazing dance to Knoxville and surrounding areas. To watch is amazing. To observe my child go thru the process, the training - breath taking to say the least. So excited to watch the show in Oct at the Clarence Brown Theater then the February show at the Bijou! The gala before the show in February is a must attend. New York in Knoxville is the only way to describe! Talent beyond belief. So happy and proud to be a part of it!
I have three daughters that dance at Studio Arts. They have been students for 8 years and the quality is unbelieveable. The dancers learn the art. The May performace is beyond spectacular at the TN Theater! It is a professional display of talent from the youngest of young to the most talented high school dancers anywhere. The office staff is organized and on it - they know you by name. The instructors teach the art and the kids talk the talk/dance the dance. The artistic director is Broadway. East TN is very fortunate to have Lisa Hall McKee and Studio Arts!
