During each performance, blank notecards are handed out to all audience members. The audience are encouraged to write something down anonymously on the notecard some time during the performance. Questions, concerns and comments are then collected and addressed in the discussion following the performance. This is a compilation of some of the recent notes collected.

Every single year the Esperanza Dance Project is amazed at the amount of support we continuously receive. Our Annual Silent Auction & Performance is one of the biggest events of the year, and you all continue to make it a huge success. 

We want you to know that we appreciate every single donor, partner, volunteer, dancer, board member, special guest, and audience member. This show would not have been possible without every single one of you!
