A Simple & clear message for all...

SSD comprises of Strictly School Dancing Ltd (The Dance School), SSD Elite (The home of our Elite Squad) and SSD Events (The home of all SSD lead events including National Competitions, Camps, Workshops, Training Days).
Our inspiration is now taken from the thousands of students we have taught over the last 13 years and those who have gone on to progress and excel in their dance careers as members of the SSD Elite Squad. SSD students rank as the best and amongst the very best competitive dancers in the UK, Europe and the World within their respective age categories.
SSD also provide their own national competition events, regular open workshops providing exclusive tuition from some of the most well known and respected current and former British, European and World Champions, 'closed' workshops, training camps, practice nights, opportunities for international competing and training events as well as teaching options for other dance schools seeking our specialised services. Focussing on 'our' genre of dance only has enabled SSD to become one of the most recognised dance schools in the United Kingdom and an absolute powerhouse in the open competitive environment through our Elite based training methodology, specialised development of talent, exposure and experience both at a national and international level.
