Bamboo in trough

It depends on how you want it to look. The cut stems will not regrow and cramp the new shoots. I would cut all stems to the ground, have a good clear out, give it a feed of a general fertiliser, stand back and watch it grow.

Shoots pruned to  6 ft will not regrow or branch as you have taken out the growing tip.

If it is now bushy, I would let it grow to the height you require. It may take a few years to flower. If the shoots are now spindly, I would cut back by half.

Do it soon, as the birds will be looking for nesting sites soon.

You can cut it all to the ground and it will regrow new shoots.
