Welcome to Terri Jayne Theatre Arts in Lightwater, Surrey


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 well as being known as a friendly and family focused school. As a result, the school grew rapidly and now teaches children and adults from all of the surrounding areas within Surrey such as Bisley, West End, Frimley, Knaphill, Mindenhurst, Bagshot, Chobham, Windlesham, Sunningdale, Sunninghill, Deepcut and Camberley.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • My daughter has been part of the TJTA family since she was two and a half and has been attending classes for over five years. The enthusiasm and encouragement given by the teachers is second to none and the level of dance is exceptionally high. TJTA have provided some fantastic dance experiences from competitions to the bi-annual show and summer school which have really added to my daughter’s confidence.
