Miss Sam's Dance Centre' of Performing Arts LLC

Miss Sam's Dance Centre' LLC offers Certified Dance Curriculum in a friendly learning environment.

I, Samantha Alger am thrilled to announce that I will be the new Owner/Director of the Dance Centre' of Performing Arts. I am so excited to have the opportunity to not only fulfill my dance dream but your children’s as well. The art of dance has been my passion from a very young age. I've danced for over 18 years and have loved every minute of it. My dance studio was my sports team, my hobby, and my second family growing up. Dance has taught me discipline, dedication, self confidence, respect for myself and others. Along with the physical aspects like poise, grace and posture, I believe dance is a therapy form in itself. To move to a song that you can relate to personally can help reduce stress and escape from life’s hardships. Growing up, I had so many priceless opportunities at the Dance Centre while under direction of Jane Petti. I traveled to NYC and danced at Radio City Music Hall with the Rockets. On weekends, I traveled to NYC for workshops and classes. I was “Clara,” the lead role in the Nut Cracker Ballet and the Sugar plum fairy in a different performance of the Nut Cracker. I held lead roles in 42 Street and Oliver Twist. I was in many other musicals casted as a dancer; some of those include The Wizard of Oz, Peter Pan, South Pacific, Anne, and West Side Story. I also performed at Sea Breeze and Darien Lake amusement parks along with many festivals, competitions and local community events. As time went on I had the opportunity to work with multiple theater groups and schools in the surrounding areas. I’ve choreographed Pippen, Joseph, Aida, Hairspray, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley. These memories will always be very close to my heart and I am thankful that Jane instilled the passion that I’ll be sharing with your children today. As the Director, instructor and choreographer, I hope to share my dance education and similar opportunities with your children. I am actively certified by test through Dance Masters of America. Having this certification not only furthers my dance education but also allows me to keep up with new teaching methods and techniques to enhance my students’ dance education. I love to create a friendly, encouraging atmosphere that will allow my students’ to succeed above and beyond. I feel there is nothing more gratifying than to watch the children I’ve taught conquer steps and combinations, and be so proud of themselves. The Dance Centre' will operate as usual with your weekly scheduled classes and an end of the year dance recital in June. I plan to engage the Dance Centre' in more community events and performances to expand your children’s studio participation and performance level. I would also like to eventually offer weekend workshops and open studio times to allow your children extra time to work on their personal goals outside of their weekly classes. I can’t express my excitement enough moving into this new year with you and your children. I am open to any suggestions or comments you may have to better the Dance Centre'. I’m looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Mission: Our Goal is to educate the public of the physical, social and emotional benefits of dance. We want you to have fun while learning to develop and build dance technique. We also believe that the teacher to student ratio is very important so all of our classes have limited available space. Preregistration is recommended.

I’ve been working through my call lists the last few days!! If you haven’t heard from me yet you should be in the next few days. It’s so easy to get caught up in long conversations because I miss everyone’s company so much!! We’ll chat soon!☺️

Hi MSDC Families!☺️
I am missing everyone like crazy!!🥰
The studio brings so much joy and happiness to my life and as these weeks pass without time with my kiddos I feel the void so, so deeply in my heart.❤️

I wanted to give everyone a heads up, I will be personally reaching out to all MSDC families over the next few days starting Monday. I’d like to touch base about what to expect at this point and where we can try to go from here. I appreciate everyone’s patients, it’s been so hard to make calls and decisions based on the unforeseeable future so far.... Please keep an eye out for my call. Thanks everybody, we’ll chat soon!☺️

MSDC In Motion Competition Families,
This is the first email I’ve personally received regarding any comps. I have not heard about Star Systems yet. I will share once I know more. ❤️
Disappointing for sure but hopefully the make up schedule works out for us and we can still get these kiddos at competition!!❤️❤️

[03/26/20]   MSDC and FLDC Families

This is the final reminder to mail your costume deposits in ASAP. I have to make the studio’s last payment by April 1st. If your costume payment isn’t received you are not guaranteed your costumes by picture day and the recital. Late payments cannot be accepted.
Please contact Miss Sam for mailing addresses info.

[03/22/20]   MSDC and FLDC families please do not send out April tuition at this time.

Reminder to PLEASE send Costume Balances and March tuition in. Costumes have already been ordered and still need to be paid for. Please private message Miss Sam for address details.

I am missing everyone like crazy and cannot wait to get back to normal. ❤️

[03/16/20]   Attention MSDC and FLDC families,
Due to the current circumstances worsening all dance classes will be cancelled until further notice. Parents please encourage your kids to practice their dance routines and encourage them to stretch daily. I am sick to have to cancel classes but I also know I would rather be more than safe than sorry until this pandemic settles down.
At this point it is hard to predict what the future holds for the rest of the season but feel free to reach out with concerns. I will do my best to address them.
PLEASE practice safe social distancing so we can slow this awful virus down. I’ll be missing all my kiddos and families these upcoming weeks.
With lots of Love, Miss Sam ❤️

[03/15/20]   MSDC and FLDC will be open normally this week for classes.
**PLEASE do not send your children if they have ANY signs of illness. **

Starting on Mon. March 23rd the studios will have to be closed until April 13th.
March tuition and costumes balances are due by the original due dates. (Tuition 3/15 and Costumes 3/26 for FLDC and 3/31 for MSDC. ) April tuition will be due the first week we return from this unfortunate time out. Make up classes will be available once everything settles down.
I will do my best to keep everyone informed about competitions and make up dates the best I can as things get sorted through.
Lastly, I ask for everyone’s patients as this pandemic is completely out of everyone’s control. We are all just trying to do our best to make sense of it.
Thank you all for your understanding and please let’s all do our best to stay safe and healthy.
