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 not sure where the two negative reviews were coming from. I've been a part of this studio and the all-star program for 3 years (the entirety for which they've been open). The owner is a young, respectful, well-trained, and exceedingly professional individual. I've never had any of the mentioned issues. I also don't have any complaints with the room set up. I think it's great that we are a part of a studio with two large rooms and my daughter has never had any comments about being unable to concentrate. At Prima Dance Studio my daughter feels as though she has a second family. She loves the coaches and all of her teammates. Since we've been a part of Prima her technique has improved tremendously and I can't even tell you how many cool "tricks" she's learned in such a short time. Would I ever consider switching studios? No. Would I recommend Prima to someone who wants to be a part of a great studio? Absolutely.
Our daughter has been a student at Angela Floyd's for 6 years now and we could not be any happier with the way everything has gone. Our daughter has loved every single teacher that she has had...in her words, they are "AWESOME!" We've had several friends leave AFSD and they always tell us, I don't know why we did that. They talk about how well organized that AFSD is compared to the new studio that they are at. We agree with there assessment. It is a well organized machine and they are always emailing us and letting us know about upcoming events and things like that. Our daughter gets so much out of her studio time that when she gets home, she continues to dance, working on what she learned in class. We ask her why and she says that the teachers challenge me, so I want to get better. To us that is the sign of a studio that has teacher who know what they are doing.
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!
My daughter has been dancing with Studio Arts for the past 5 years. The teachers have instilled a love of the art of dance and helped her grow as a dancer . Ms. Lisa is an amazing guiding force behind it all . Each May, at the end of the year performance, the dancers show how much they have learned and grown over the year. I am always amazed and moved by the choreography. If you are looking for a dance studio that will encourage your dancer and be welcoming to your family, Studio Arts for Dancers is where you want to be.
Studio Arts is the best dance school in Knoxville. My daughter has been dancing there for 6 years. The instructors are knowledgeeable and kind! They work hard to maintain the positive self image for the students and encourage them to be successful in all areas, not just dance. The show at the end of the year is not just a recital it's a full fledged show. It's amazing! The girls learn to be graceful and creative and carry that out of the studio into other areas of their lives. Great Value TOO! FANTASTIC!!!!!!
Prima Dance is one big family. There's no other studio that can compare to this place I call home. Every girl is devoted and passionate about their dancing. We all motivate each other and cheer for each other in getting new tricks or even working as a team. The coaches here are the teachers here are super understanding and they care for all of their kids. Little kids are able to come here and grow so much in their dancing. I'm so blessed for Prima Dance. You should really come and be apart of our family.
I have three dancers who have been at Studio Arts for Dancers since August 2004. We came from a different studio because I was looking for a studio that taught excellent technique with a performance flair. This studio has both and has worked well with my three vastly different children. The classes are professional and their performances excel. If you have a student that desires an excellent classical and/or modern technique, then I would highly recommend Studio Arts for Dancers.
My two girls have been dancing at dancers studio for years and years. They absolutely LOVE it. The staff is very proffesional and appropriate for each age level. Dancers Studio embraces creativity and the joy of dance and being exceptional is truly projected there. Although the teachers can be strict, they truly create strong and amazing dancers. We will definitely stay with the studio, because we and many others believe its the best studio in Knoxville.
