Our Story

JAZZ INC is a collective of dancers, led by Sinclair Ang, to promote traditional jazz dancing from vernacular Jazz, to Charleston, and Lindy Hop through classes and performances.  On occasion we present street dances in performances as part of our Freedom Jazz Dance Project.  We do regular adult classes, and also special workshops and presentations for schools of all levels and corporate team building sessions, covering different genres of dancing. Sinclair has also worked with various show choirs as well, including the ITE Show Choir, and is committed to the next generation of dancers, being a part of the Jazz Kids from Kids Performing for almost 11 years since its early days.

Freedom Jazz Dance Project

The dancers have performed both locally and overseas, and in different media and contexts, including dance documentaries and commercials, talk shows, the stage, at festivals like Esplanade’s Flipside and da:ns Festival, SMU Arts Festival, and Got to Move, as well as for the nation on National Day with the Dim Sum Dollies.

More about Jazz Inc

With almost 20 years of dance experience, Sinclair has also conducted numerous workshops over the past decade and a half overseas, in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, in over 20 countries, initially helping many of the fledgling scenes grow in Asia.  With his experience, he personally trains his teaching team to ensure the highest level of classes both in terms of fun and making it easy to learn the dance.

Part of Jazz Inc’s commitment is also to the music, presenting demo-lectures on jazz music and dancing to schools, and was a part of Esplanade’s Bitesize series for several years, educating adults and youths alike in the history and development of Jazz music and dance over the past century.

Sinclair also sings with his Rhythmakers, to present vintage jazz tunes for dancers and listeners alike.  He has sat in and jammed with several of the hottest Swing Dance bands today as well, including the Gordon Webster Band, Stockholm All-Stars, and the Hot Sugar Band.

Our Events

 

Almost Christmas Schedule-1

Almost Christmas Weekend with Anne-Helene & Bernard (France)
14 – 16th Dec 2018 (Fri – Sun)

Although the classes are split into “Blues”, “Balboa” etc. the main focus of the weekend is about intentionality in dancing to Jazz music, having the vocabulary, the movement technique, that comfortable connection, and being able to express the music. Anne-Hélène and Bernard have all the tools and experience to impart these aspects of dancing, from being a musician (Bernard) and a dancer trained in the Franklin method (Anne-Hélène), and a long time partnership in doing Blues and Balboa – dances that really rely on connection and rhythms, feeling and the music.
