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
