About us

About NEEMA: 

NEEMA International Performing Arts Center is dedicated to providing the North Alabama Area with cultural diversity in dance and musical instruction.

Our style and instruction is different from the traditional instruction that is locally available. NEEMA (Christian Based) is family oriented and takes pride in the conscious effort to keep the instruction appropriate for all ages and focus our attention to cultural diversity in the arts. We believe that it takes a community to raise children, and we treat all of our customers like members of our own family. It is our belief that with this understanding, our organization can successfully present our motto:

“Establishing Positive Perspectives in the Community!”

We are a small multi-cultural family oriented artistic environment. We are currently located at 2809, Suite 114 Newby Road next to Byrd Spring Park. NEEMA opened its doors in October 2002 with just seven students. Since then we have trained over five hundred students, including Middle School Dance Workshops, Church Workshops, Community Workshops and individual mini-term dance training. We are not just another dance center, NEEMA is an experience.Our motive is to provide quality dance instruction with the highest levels of professionalism, yet at the same time aim provide excellent customer service, promote self-esteem, provide quality instruction, promote respect for our fellow man, and create and certain level of appreciation for various art forms. 

At NEEMA, we try to make the atmosphere comfortable for everyone, even if you have never taken dance a day in your life. No one should feel uncomfortable about doing what he or she desires. From the children to the adults, it truly is all about the individual wanting to dance-regardless of race, age, size, or gender.
