mt tap dancers 2017

Two Northampton College musical theatre students took to the stage at a lavish awards dinner in Liverpool to help celebrate the achievements of contact lens professionals from around the world.

Adrianne Langley and Kyra Derviller-Adams, who both study Musical Theatre at the College’s Booth Lane campus, performed as part of the British Contact Lens Association’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

The pair escorted BCLA president, and Northampton-based optometrist, Brian Tompkins onto the stage at St George’s Hall in Liverpool and performed a medley of tap dancing routines to tunes including Puttin’ On The Ritz and Top Hat, White Tie and Tails.

The routine was put together by the girls themselves and teacher Suzanne Bushen, who said: “Getting the chance to perform at such a fantastic event, and in such an incredible venue, was a fantastic opportunity for the girls. It gave them a taste of what the future could hold for them if they continue to work hard and they were absolutely brilliant. To get a standing ovation from a crowd that size and help generate an unforgettable atmosphere will have given the girls a real boost. I’m really pleased for them and they did both themselves and the College proud.”
