Recap Summer 2012
Girls Rock Dallas wants to thank each and every one of you for contributing towards our very first summer rock camp. Our first year was an amazing success - 29 campers at our first camp! In just one week, six bands were formed, songs were written, and fun was had by all. Our Showcase at Club Dada was amazing and the girls sounded great. We are very excited that our first year went so well and are already in the planning stages to make 2013 even bigger and better.
We are currently finishing up editing the CD and DVD of the Showcase, so if you want one it's not to late. Email us and we'll get you on the list to receive a copy.
Please see below for updates on our upcoming programs and events.
All our Best,
Girls Rock Dallas
