Our Story

Jazz Inc is a collective of dancers led by Sinclair Ang, with the aim of promoting traditional jazz dancing from vernacular Jazz, to Charleston, and Lindy Hop through classes and performances.  With over one and a half decades of international teaching experience in over 20 countries, Sinclair is focused on the education of jazz not only through good and engaging teaching, but also in giving talks about the art form, including it’s history and music. Sinclair leads The Rhythmakers, a band dedicated to playing authentic tunes from the goldern era of Swing specially for dancers. While preserving traditions, Jazz Inc innovates through working with 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.
