About Jazz Inc
Jazz Inc is a collective of dancers led and founded by Sinclair Ang. While specialising in authentic street dances from the 1920s–40s, like the charleston and the lindy hop, the collective also seeks to promote contemporary urban street dances, with a focus on tracing the roots and development of street dance and finding their common ground and influences, as well as to break barriers between the different subgenres of the dance and their respective music. They also aim to be inclusive rather than divisive, and to celebrate vernacular dance in all its forms and its organic nature that ties it closely to the everyday struggles, pains, joys and victories.
