Introducing the Dancer Feature Series!
We are delighted to announce a new weekly series! Each week we will be sharing the stories of some our amazing company performers. We are so excited to share why these wonderful individuals choose to be active participants in the Esperanza Dance Project. 💜
Follow us on instagram for the weekly feature, where we will be highlighting each dancer with a short video. The videos are made by the dancers themselves, utilizing their own space as we work remotely as a company during the pandemic. This series is truly powerful because the dancers are all very unique and inspiring individuals, who actively engage in their communities to advocate for the end of sexual violence and sexual abuse, participate in a peer advocate training, facilitate meaningful discussions with peers, and dedicate at least 6 hours weekly to the Project. We are so grateful for all the members our team, and hope to introduce some of them here.
EDP’s performers and non-performing interns are between the ages of 14-30, of diverse backgrounds, artistic training, ethnicities, narratives, genders and sexual orientations and our audiences consist of youth and adults from diverse communities. Our young performers are a resource we have built right into our organization. They are reached out to on a regular basis to evaluate and reevaluate our curriculum. As youth they are truly experts in what youth relate to and connect with. Their feedback is extremely valuable to our planning and decision making.
