About Us

Our Mission

Next Step Dance Studio of Harrison (formerly Deborah Moore Academy of Dance) was founded in 1997, in Harrison, Arkansas, and continues to thrives to this day.

With more than twenty five years of teaching experience, dance is our way of life. To give a child the gift of dance is to provide them with an experience that will enhance their entire life. It is a wonderful artistic outlet which not only cultivates creativity and harnesses talent, but teaches the value of both discipline and perseverance.

Our staff takes their role in sharing this gift very seriously, and are mindful of their own ability to build character and self esteem in the children they welcome into their classrooms.

In short, our mission is to provide a positive and productive learning environment for your child, and to build the experiences and memories that they will carry with them throughout their lives, and help to shape the person they will become.
