Tufts School of Medicine Multicultural Show

Last month, the Tufts School of Medicine posted videos on YouTube of their annual Multicultural Performing Arts Show (MPAG), hosted by the university’s Office of Multicultural Affairs. The show consists of students and professors putting on performances for the rest of the student body in an effort to raise funds for college diversity scholarships for high school seniors in the Boston area. Here’s one performance from this year’s show, but make sure to visit their YouTube page for more videos.

Chair Dancing at Multicultural Performing Arts Show

Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy Ph.D. student and accomplished dancer Lara Park didn’t let a knee injury stop her from performing in the annual Multicultural Performing Arts Show, held Feb. 11. Check out her awesome “chair dance” to Florence and the Machine’s “Between Two Lungs.”

Park performed just ten days after undergoing knee surgery. “No matter what kind of movement challenges you have, if you have something to share, go for it,” says Park, who is hoping to apply the experience toward choreographing dance programs for individuals with movement challenges. “It’s amazing how you can still move an audience.”

100 percent of proceeds from the performance went to the Colleen Romain Scholarship Fund, benefiting local high schoolers.

Park previously participated in a “Dance Your Ph.D.” competition organized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
