The Terri Jayne School of Dance – now the Terri Jayne Theatre Arts – was founded in 1992, whose website describes its founding,
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.
I’ve been a big supporter of youth dance, first encountering it when a Councillor some years ago, viewing the activity as having many benefits, such as fitness, camaraderie, individual confidence, and teamwork. To see the growth in youth dance is encouraging. I imagine the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing has helped promote dance as a fun leisure activity.
The two large such schools in the borough, Terri Jayne and Lorna Timms, each perform at Camberley Theatre – swapping on a yearly basis. I believe they both provide dancers for Camberley Theatre pantomimes.
This year Terri Jayne Theatre Arts celebrates it’s 25th anniversary, and will be performing at Camberley Theatre on April 22nd and 23rd. See advert below – click to expand.
