GIRLS ROCK!!

Last summer I taugh self defense class to the girls rock summer camp. http://girlsrockchicago.org/
I must say, I was told originally I was teaching 20 girls, but as the day grew closer, the other self defense teachers cancelled, thus I ended the sole one standing and taught 100 girls the workshop. It ended up being piles of fun and the girls were inquisitive, asked a ton of questions, they wanted to know more. This camp is amazing for girls to be empowered through music and other activities that the camp has scheduled. I noticed that this year, the girls not only can learn how to be in a band, but there is a DJing course (I secretly want to participate in this camp)
Heres a little clippy of that!

Wow Erika, this is a great program! And perfect timing, as I have a CHADD group this evening and we will be discussing summer camps/programs for kids! Knowing that they have quality instructors such as yourself, gives me every confidence in referring the program to others! AND it looks like it would be such fun!
Thanks for sharing!
Rock on!
