It's all in the family...
Holly and Dale Bills opened Bay Valley Academy in 1976 under the name "Miss Holly's". Miss Holly has since passed down ownership to her eldest daughter and son-in-law, Jennifer and Brian Kennedy. Three moves and 40 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.
Bay Valley Academy is Bay County's only USA Gymnastics certified program. All of our instructors are annually educated in the latest instructional methods and National rules. Our gymnastics instructors are USA Gymnastics Professional members, safety certified, Safe Sport certified, and given formal background checks each year through USA Gymnastics.
