Welcome to Terri Jayne Theatre Arts

The Terri Jayne Theatre Arts was established by Terri Bowen in April 1992 in Lightwater Country Park with 4 pupils turning up on its first day. An early reputation developed for high standards of teaching and in providing a wide range of performing opportunities for all. As a result, the school grew rapidly and now boasts branches in Lightwater, West End and Chobham.

  • I love going to Adult ballet classes at Terri Jaynes! It’s great fun, we work hard and it’s a workout like no other - I’d definitely recommend! I also really appreciate all the effort they have put into to enabling an effective COVID secure studio and social distancing in the class.
  • Two of my children have danced at Terri Jayne Theatre Arts for 8 and 6 respectively and they both thoroughly enjoy it. The facilities are excellent and the teachers are caring and professional. The teachers know how to get the best from their dancers. The school offers a wide range of classes to suit everyone, young and old. The school produces magnificent shows and their choreography is outstanding.
  • An outstanding dance studio that my daughter, who is at preschool age, absolutely loves! they have fantastic and professional teachers, shows and performances in Camberley theatre, excellent studios, fun environment and most important of all: happy children!
