The Founder’s Circle


In August 2004, a small band of dedicated women began talking about setting up a rock camp for girls in New York City. Originally dubbed The Working Group, these women worked together for the first time on the east coast in 2005 , and are now known as  the Founders’ Circle:

Maria Cincotta, Ingrid Dahl, Hanna Fox, Suzanne Grossman, Caryn Havlik, Arabella Kauffmann, Ruth Keating Lockwood, Elizabeth Mitchell, Kimberly Perry, Karla Schickele, Rose Thomson.
