Our Story

Norma’s Academy of Dance was established in 1972 by the late Norma B. Mitchell, and her daughter, Djana Bell, is continuing the legacy. Performing in and out of Georgia, the academy has been an asset to the Metropolitan Atlanta area for nearly five decades.


The earlier America’s youth becomes aware of their needs, desires and total existence, the greater effect the change will have upon them as they interact with their environment. It is upon these principles and goals that Norma’s Academy of Fine Arts was instituted.

— Norma B. Mitchell


Norma’s Academy of Dance Performance Ensemble

Our Performance Ensemble is comprised of the best and brightest students of the Academy, serving as a vehicle for members to receive exposure and recognition for excellence in dance. Ensemble members also promote cultural arts and dance in the community.
