The Tufts Jumbo Jugglers recently held a performance as a chance for the Tufts community to come see the amazing skills that these Jumbos refine every week. The group practices a variety of styles and techniques, including balls, contact staff, clubs, rings and devil sticks.
Their performance included guest acts by Vassar College’s Barefoot Monkeys, an acrobatic duo, and Cirque de Light, a local performing duo.

Earlier this month the Tufts Tap Ensemble was a featured guest at Harvard’s Pan African Dance and Music Ensemble (PADAME) show. The dance troupe performs on campus several times each semester, and offers student-run workshops for anyone who wishes to learn more about tap dancing.
Check out this video of the group’s performance from PADAME – it’s a fun dance number performed to “Trashin’ the Camp,” from the soundtrack to the animated film Tarzan.
On November 1, the Tufts Japanese Culture Club hosted an event entitled “Discover Japan Through Music.” The Club invited noted Japanese musicians to share their musical talents with the Tufts community. The performance featured traditional Japanese music, as well as “J Pop” (Japanese Pop), and the performers impressed the audience by their use of unique instruments, including the shakuhachi (a Japanese bamboo flute) and the koto (a Japanese string instrument).
This past weekend, Jumbos invited their parents back to the Hill for a look at things they might have missed in previous visits. Tours, lectures, and performances showcased all the great things students are involved with everyday. Check out videos from some of the performances that highlighted the weekend.
