Participant Profile: Jason Curran

On summer nights and on the way to class, at weddings and at funerals, if there is music playing you’ll find Jason dancing. It has always been Jason’s niche; he’s explored hip hop, ballet, contemporary, and (briefly) tap. He welcomes any opportunity to learn new styles – especially Latin styles like salsa and bachata. Jason is from Arroyo Grande, on the central coast of California, and has been raised to appreciate the unknown. He cannot imagine staying in one place for a lifetime, because he cannot ignore the nuanced familiarity that exists in the world. In his journey to Tufts and Peru he will dive headfirst into international relations and economics and finally get a foothold on the Spanish that eluded him throughout three years of high school classes.
