A dance performance event at Tufts University was shut down over the weekend after several people in the audience required medical help for alcohol intoxication, campus officials said.

Student leadership of the Tufts Dance Collective, which organized the event, is now working with administrators to find ways “to improve the way these events will be managed in the future,” university spokeswoman Kimberly Thurler said in an email.

She said university public safety officials on Saturday night received about a half dozen calls for medical assistance due to alcohol intoxication prompting the event to be shut down “for reasons of health and safety.”

Thurler said there is no indication that any drugs other than alcohol were used by people at the event.

The Tufts Daily student newspaper first reported on the event being shut down.
