Instructor Information

Jazz Inc

Founded by traditional jazz dance specialist Sinclair Ang, Jazz Inc promotes traditional jazz dancing, from vernacular jazz to the Charleston and Lindy Hop through classes and performances and lectures on the dance and its music. The dancers have performed both locally and overseas in different media and contexts, including dance documentaries and commercials, talk shows, on stage, in festivals, as well as for the nation on National Day with the Dim Sum Dollies. Having taught swing dancing for about two decades now, Sinclair has taught and performed across Europe and Asia Pacific in over 30 cities and 20 countries.

 

In Singapore, Sinclair is also committed to working with youths, including working on the Jazz Kids for 11 years—children who sing jazz standards and dance authentic jazz steps. He has conducted workshops and given lecture-demonstrations to numerous primary, secondary and tertiary institutions at the Esplanade as well as festivals overseas. He has also worked with youths-at-risk from Beyond Social Services for several years, as well as helped young inmates as part of the National Youth Achievement Award in 2013. Sinclair’s Freedom Jazz Dance Project involves tracing the lineage of authentic jazz dancing in the ’20s and ’30s, all the way to present day street dances. He has also worked with street dancers, looking at the similarity of steps and rhythms between the dances at two ends of the continuum. His research now also delves deeper into the cultural context and historical development of these dances and music through the ages.
