Angela Harmon's Story
DJ/MC, Dance Instructor
Meet Angela Harmon…
Mary Poppins! My idol…absolutely perfect. I have such a fond memory as a child of watching Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke bring magic to the screen through dance and song. Although Mary Poppins first aired 20 years before I was born, that era of big bands, tap dancing, and swing rings true to my core.
When the swing craze returned in the late 90’s, I was in my element! My brother, Dave Harmon, started teaching ballroom and swing lessons with his new company, Harmon DanceWorks (now known as Harmon Entertainment), and he soon asked if I would like to co-teach. That was my life changing window! Since the age of 19, I have been dancing and teaching dance everywhere I can. Whether it was the Mexican Hat Dance with the MSUM Heritage Dancers, Line Dancing in Dallas, performing the Evolution of Dance at Fargo’s Bridal Show, or doing Salsa and Bachata in the Dominican Republic, it didn’t matter, I was dancing and happy! These days, you can join me and the Bismarck-Mandan Dance Group every first and third Friday at the Harvest for our social dance classes.
In addition to DJing and instructing dance, I am a mother and a Spanish teacher at Mandan High School. I love having the opportunity to share my passion for Spanish and help create compassionate, global citizens amongst our youth.
For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed creating positive experiences and memories for others. It is my absolute pleasure to be working with Harmon Entertainment in providing unforgettable weddings, receptions, and events. I am so looking forward to collaborating with you in planning “your special day”.
“It was such a pleasure to work with Angela from Harmon Entertainment. Not only was my wedding dance so much fun, dinner was fun and interactive. My guests raved about all the music! Thank you so much Angela!”

“We hired Harmon Entertainment to do our wedding music and the dinner/dance. It was the best decision! They are so organized and have information forms to fill out to make sure nothing is missed!! Angela was fun, organized, and on top of everything. I didn’t have to worry that things were moving along as she took the role of coordinator! My new husband and I were able to just relax and visit and have a wonderful time!! Our family and friends have told us it was the best wedding they have ever attended! I thank Angela and Harmon Entertainment for making our wedding a great time for everyone!!”
