Denise Minns-Harris
Week 1, Week 2

Denise Minns-Harris – Lifelong Grassroots Activist, Daughter, Sister, Teacher, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Dancer, Buddhist, and professional Fundraiser for a wide variety of international, national, and local political, educational, progressive non-profit, and advocacy organizations. As soon as she could walk, her father, the world-renowned Jazz Dancer, Al Minns, would place her feet on his and dance. She loved Lindy Hop! She later studied Jazz, Modern and African dance as well. Her parents’ example of courage (they were married when it was illegal in most of the United States) taught her never to acquiesce to the status quo and to be willing to fight for what you believe in… especially your dreams!  This has been the touchstone of her life and one she has strived to pass on.

Sugar Sullivan
Week 1, Week 2

Ms Sugar Sullivan started her career at the age of nine. She was a member of the "Original Jazz Dancers", a distinguished group of Lindy Hoppers and Hoofers from Harlem’s heyday. Sugar has been featured with the Harlem Blues and Jazz Band, Cab Calloway’s Hi-De-Ho Orchestra, and Panama Francis and his Savoy Sultans, among others. Ms Sugar Sullivan learned to dance at home, starting Tap dancing at age four. She was instructed in Tap by Buster Brown when he was performing with the Three Speed Kings. She won first place in the Harvest Moon Ball in 1955 at Madison Square Garden in NYC. Sugar Sullivan & Barbara Billups met at the Savoy Ballroom in the 1950s and they both have been coming to Herrang Dance Camp since 2004 and they are a huge inspiration to the dance world.

Guests

Breai Mason Campbell
Week 3

Breai Michele is a Baltimore native, activist, dancer, and cultural counselor. A Harvard graduate and 20-year veteran teacher in Baltimore City, Breai is Executive Director of Moving History, a non-profit that teaches the story of African-American people dynamically through instrumental and vocal music, dance, and visual, culinary and martial arts.
Upon return to Baltimore in 2002 following graduate school, Breai founded Guardian Dance Company with the mission of practicing, preserving and passing on African American culture. Lindy Hop was one of the Dances added to the company repertoire as a part of this effort. Along with the other members of the company, who were also unfamiliar with the dance at the time, Breai began her deep study of Lindy Hop, determined to see it grow and flourish in the community of its birth.

Momo
Week 1

Momo is a passionate dancer from Osnabrück, and has been an integral part of the Lindy Hop scene for over 10 years. Learning about the history and cultural roots of Lindy Hop and Swing is necessary to fully appreciate it. But how can we be sensible and understand the circumstances for black people now and back then? What could be a good way to discuss the dancing scene and its inclusivity today? Momo created a small portable format that breaks down the problematic and identifies the inherent racism that European societies have carried on for centuries. This is a chance to discuss how we can make our scene more inclusive. And it will be more than just warm words!
