Alima International Dance Association

Alima International Dance Association is a family whose goal is to spread the diversity of dancing that derived from the African roots. Alima wants the world to become aware of the diversity and the beauty of cultures fused together into one. Alima believes that different nationalities and backgrounds should come together through music and dance. Although, people have different believes, different languages and certainly different dance rituals, Alima does not look at these differences. It focuses more on what people really have in common, and this is exactly what Alima does; taking all different types of music that sounds good and that sends a positive message and performs to it. Mission: In Arabic, ALIMA means, "Those who are skilled in dance and music." In addition to increasing awareness to appreciation of dance derived from Africa, ALIMA seeks to spread understanding of a lifestyle based on holistic development of the body, mind, and spirit. In its approach to performance, ALIMA seeks to create a special relationship with its audience intended to send energy out and to have that energy reflected back to the performers. ALIMA's vision is to establish an international academy for the teaching of African dance, leadership, communication, and holistic development. Our Members Alima accepts any and all students enrolled at the University of Rhode Island, both undergraduate and graduate. We have one requirement of all our official members: all members must choreograph a dance to present to the e-board. These dances, created by and representative of our members, are how we choose what dances will comprise our annual showcase, Rhythm of the Soul.
