This is indeed a special group. I first met the youth involved in this group when they attended a hearing at the City Council Meeting of the City of Avondale to advocate for the preservation of the historic Goodyear Farms Cemetery. They were present to demonstrate their support and commitment to sustaining the preservation of the Cemetery, where early ancestors of the region, largely of Mexican American descent, are buried. As a group they have participated and led the charge to organize the clean-up days at the Cemetery and the fundraising for both the Cemetery and their dance group. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform at the 2nd Annual Fundraiser and they were spectacular. The leadership of this group, the board members, and the parents are equally committed to the group's success. As a faculty member from Arizona State University, my research focuses on the history of the labor camps that were first established by the Southwest Cotton Company, when Goodyear Tire & Rubber entered Arizona to grow cotton for the mass production of tires. As I wrap up my book this coming spring I can say with certainty that the activities of this group are very much going to be included in my discussion of the legacies of this community and the vitality and hope that is exquisitely represented by the youth, their leaders, and community people involved in their success.

We have had the pleasure of Ballet Folklorico Esperanza performing for our community the past two years at our annual arts festival. They are always extremely kind and generous with their time. Their performances are entertaining and very well done, and it has been great for the kids in our community to see other kids perform at such a high level. I have had nothing but great experiences dealing/working with them, and we plan on having them back to perform for many years to come!

It has been a pleasure working with Ballet Folklorico Esperanza. We have shared a stage with them, participated in their events and its always a pleasure. We recently participated in their Cemetery Fundraising event and it was wonderful. This organization truly cares to give back to the community. The instructor, director and dancers are all wonderful. Very transparent and organized group! LOVE THEM!

Ballet Folklorico Esperanza is a 501 (c)3 non-profit dance group which was started so that children would know their roots and keep the history of their ancestors alive.
