Med Students Dance for a Cause

Students at the Tufts Medical School recently showcased their talent for a cause at their annual Multicultural Performing Arts Show (MPAG). Proceeds of the show went toward the Colleen Romain Scholarship Fund, a scholarship that subsidizes college application fees for underprivileged high school seniors from the Boston Public School System.

The Medical School’s class of 2015 contributed to the effort with a bhangra/bollywood dance that highlights Tufts’s multi-talented students as well as the support and pride they find in this community. Check out their performance:

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).
