Exploring fun ways to approach improvising and composing using the outdoors and nature from your doorstep! – Creative Heights

About Jazz Camp for Girls
Jazz Camp for Girls is inspired by an original project created by JazzDanmark and Copenhagen Jazz Festival to address the gender inbalance in jazz. The Danish version is now in 8th year and runs for one week simultaneously in 16 cities around Denmark. Our 5 year goal is to build up a UK Jazz Camp for Girls by adding new partners each year.
