The L’Oréal Colour Trophy Finals

In light of the current climate regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic L’Oréal have made the decision to postpone the L’Oréal Colour Trophy UK Grand Final and the Live Final Republic of Ireland.

The new dates for the finals will be held on 7 June 2021 (UK) and 20 June 2021 (ROI) respectively. Both events will be held at the originally planned locations – Battersea Evolution (UK) and The Mansion House (ROI).

“We believe that postponing both event finals will give the competition the best chance to proceed safely with a live event format and also allow us to celebrate the UK 65th year all together, as well as celebrate in Ireland with all of our partners and teams,” reads a statement from the company.

Opening Your Own Dance Studio

Starting up your own dance studio might seem daunting, but Owning a studio is a commercial venture that requires capital, business savvy and almost obsessive attention to detail.

Here is a recently published article written by Dayna Farrington about a dance teacher who did just that.

Dance teacher achieves dream of opening her own dance studio

A young dance teacher is celebrating lockdown restrictions being finally lifted so that she can achieve her dream of opening her own studio in Wolverhampton.

Tracy King and Hayley Morris have opened Synergie Dance and Fitness Studios in Wolverhampton

Hayley Morris, 26, from Sedgley, has opened the Synergie Dance Training Academy in Commercial Road and her former teacher, Tracy King, has also moved her business, Tracy King’s School of Dance, previously based in Sedgley, into the building.

Already the two dance studios have more than 110 pupils on their books…

Hayley, a BA Honours dance graduate, said: “The opening was to have been in November but then lockdown hit and I am just delighted that we are now finally welcoming people to the two dance studios and other dance and fitness classes.

“It has been a life-long dream of mine to open a studio and then I finally stumbled on these premises and thought they would be ideal.

“I have opened the Academy to teach pupils for both examination and performance on stage.

“Tracy, my former dance teacher from when I was six-years-old, has moved her school into the building.

“She concentrates mainly on ballet, tap and modern dance while I deal with the more acrobatic.”

Hayley currently works as a part-time sales assistance with a company in Wolverhampton, but eventually hopes to become a full-time teacher as pupil numbers grow.

She said: “Tracy and I have sort of joined forces and we are both delighted to be finally working from the Academy.

“I am fully qualified through the National Association of Teachers in Dance and recently gained recognition from the International Dance Teachers Association in freestyle dance.

“I also had the privilege of taking part in the televised Olympic handover ceremony held in Birmingham two years ago.

“Through the opening of the Dance & Fitness Academy, I feel that I will be giving something back to the local community.”
