Ballerina Rose advice

I have recently bought some Ballerina Roses and I need some advice on deadheading/pruning please. 

As you can see I the picture, the blooms have died and there are new blooms and shoots with buds coming out.

Should I deadhead/prune the dead blooms? If so, how do I do this? Should I cut at the bottom of the stem where the bloom cluster starts, or should I deadhead each single stem where there is a bloom (much as you would do for a normal rose, as in each single stem)?

I've not had Ballerina Roses before so your advice would be appreciated. 

Thanks,

Kerry

    Just  cut below the dead cluster above the next set of leaves . Mine usually flower well afterwards

    Thanks for the advice both! I'm a gardening novice so I'm learning... I've removed the bark from the base and have deadheaded and fed as advised. Fingers crossed I get some lovely new blooms. Thanks again ?
