Jeffrey Tan is one of Singapore’s most prolific and established dancer, choreographer and educator. Formerly a principal dancer, assistant ballet master, and resident choreographer (2004 – 2008) with Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT), the Master of Fine Arts graduate from Queensland University of Technology is T.H.E’s very first associate artist as of 2013.
Tan received the Singapore Young Artiste Award (Excellence in Dance) in 2000 and has performed the works of George Balanchine, Goh Choo San, Graham Lustig, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, and Boi Sakti to name a few. He has also toured to international venues in the United States, Australia, China, London, Indonesia, Malaysia, and to festivals such as the Le Temps d’Aimer la Danse a Biarritz in France, and Chang Mu Arts Festival in Korea. Testament to his versatility as a choreographer, Tan has worked in the balletic and contemporary dance forms, for musicals, and major events such as the Singapore National Day Parade and Singapore Shanghai World Expo 2010.
Tan’s appointment as T.H.E’s associate artist in 2013 marks the choreographer’s highly anticipated return to the local contemporary dance scene, and limitless potential for the company’s growth as Tan imparts his wealth of experience and elegant, fluid style.
