Our Proud History – Strictly Smartz

(Formerly Davies Dance Centre, est. 1977)

Over the past 40 years we have taught many pupils from beginners/social dancers – to high level competitive – to professional standards. Our vast experience of teaching dance will benefit you.

Mathew Cutler – past professional winner of “Strictly” started his dance career at the age of years old with us – and went on to win World Championships – whilst under our wing.


We pride ourselves on having a school that not only a very good place to learn to dance, but we work hard in maintain a friendly – informal atmosphere on all classes and lessons. Everyone learns best whilst happy and enjoying themselves – I can guarantee you will enjoy learning to dance at our studio.

This year we are endeavouring to bring the studio into the 21st century – hence the new name – Strictly Smartz- and a major refurbishment.

The new décor will enhance a social atmosphere – and with the added advantage of a bar – we will be in a position to hold regular social events – for dancers – and families. Please look at “what’s on” for up and coming events. Refurbishment scheduled for April 2015.

We cater for all age groups from Toddlers to OAP and offer a youth club environment for youngsters, and an ideal meeting place for parents. It really is an ideal family club.

Parents can see the benefits of encouraging their children to take part in a healthy, fun sport activity which encourages, – all social graces, as well as the ability to learn in partnership and the obvious exercise advantage.

We encourage all pupils to reach their full potential – and achieve all personal goals – all be it – to Dance at Blackpool – or dance a basic Waltz at a family gathering.

Look forward to seeing you there soon.
