Mission

To eradicate stigma, secrecy and shame associated with surviving childhood sexual violence.
The Esperanza Dance Project is a community-based collaboration that uses a multimedia dance performance to educate about the issue of childhood sexual violence and deliver a message of hope, strength and empowerment.

What We Do

Esperanza Dance Project's vision is that all high school students in Arizona learn to recognize warning signs associated with sexual abuse, feel comfortable discussing it openly and compassionately, and become familiar with local resources for support.
We do this by providing a multi-media performance to address childhood sexual violence through dance, music, and spoken word in a way that empowers teens. We provide tools for discussion and understanding through a study guide, written by behavioral health professionals. Additionally we provide local information about ongoing peer advocacy and support connections in the community, and host meaningful question and answer sessions following each performance.
