UPCOMING EVENT!

Tucson, Arizona, November 12, 2021 – Esperanza Dance Project (EDP), a Tucson-based non-profit organization committed to using dance to eradicate stigma, secrecy and shame associated with surviving childhood sexual violence, will hold its annual performance, resource fair and auction fundraiser. The event will be held at Santa Rita High School, 3951 S. Pantano Road, Tucson, AZ 85730 on Friday, November 12, 2021. This event is open to the public. Suggested donation of $10. All students are free with ID.

The event will open with a community resource fair and silent auction beginning at 6:00pm (MST). The dance performance will begin at 7:00pm and is expected to last approximately 45 minutes. EDP will hold space for conversation by facilitating an open question and answer discussion immediately following the performance.

Masks are required to attend this event, and social distancing will be enforced. While we hope to hold the performance inside the auditorium, an entirely outdoor option will be prepared in anticipation of shifting health and safety recommendations. The auction and resource fair will be held outside.

In addition to the performance of “House of Hope” and the auction, a community resource fair will be available to all members of the community.
Start by believing.
We support survivors and educate communities through the transformative power of dance.
Your donation matters. A financial contribution to Esperanza Dance Project allows us to help others find support and healing from childhood sexual violence, empower young adults as peer advocates and present multimedia performances to youth and the Arizona community at large.

She had an anatomical heart with wings tattooed on her forearm with the Spanish word “esperanza,” which translates to “hope.” Was this tattoo her desperate attempt to find hope in her life when in reality, she had spiraled deeply to a place of complete hopelessness?
