It's all in the family...

Holly and Dale Bills opened Bay Valley Academy in 1976 under the name "Miss Holly's". Miss Holly passed down ownership to her eldest daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Brian Kennedy. Recently, Karrie Mieske and Lindsay Woolever, once BVA competitive gymnasts and dancers, and now dance and gymnastics moms themselves, took ownership. Three moves and 45 years later, BVA is still committed to excellence in all that we do.



As a family of instructors, our philosophy is to enrich our athletes and provide the highest standard in gymnastics instruction, dance technique training, and age appropriate choreography. Our staff is made up of well-trained and experienced individuals that share a mutual interest in providing your athlete with character building and confidence boosting instruction.
