Miss Terry Dean founded The Ballet Centre in 1985 in order to teach Dance and in particular Classical Ballet to children of all Nationalities.  The Ballet Centre due to Terry’s dedication and hard work was an immediate success.  The Ballet Centre grew annually from strength to strength offering an increasing variety of classes and facilities to both children and adults.

The Ballet Centre is located in the heart of Jumeirah and consists of two villas that have a total of seven DANCE STUDIOS each with WOODEN SPRUNG FLOORS,  ballet barres and wall mirrors, THREE MUSIC ROOMS and an activity room.  The Ballet Centre also houses its own COFFEE SHOP and a SHOP which stocks an extensive range of dancewear and dance related gifts.

The Ballet Centre has a Branch in Motor City consisting of two DANCE STUDIOS and two MUSIC ROOMS.

Sadly Terry died in 2000 and her mother Mrs. Kathleen Dean continued to run the School until 2014 when she passed it on to the current Proprietor MangalikaJayalath.
