Our Mission
Start by believing.

Empowering survivors of childhood sexual trauma by eradicating stigma and secrecy while inspiring hope for healing through our impactful dance performance, discussions, and advocacy. 

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 trauma, empower young adults as peer advocates and present multimedia performances to youth and the Arizona community at large.
