Interviewed The Gentlemen Collective 

1) How did this name came about?
Our group name started out with our concept we had for our SDD prelims piece and from there we started playing with words related to gentlemen and ended with The Gentlemen Collective.

2) How did you all from the group?
Our group was initially formed by our seniors. We are all from the same CCA, New Revolving Age, which is a hip hop club in our school, Ngee Ann Polytechnic.

3) Where do you guys usually have your training?
We usually practice in our school studios, if not we would have to find a space that has a reflection even if it's in the open.

4) How old are the members in your group?
We range from 17- 20.

5) Have you guys took part in any other dance competition?
This competition is our first as a crew, but individually we have taken part in various competitions with other groups.

6) Tell me what inspire you guys to dance?
We all come from different dance backgrounds, but we all love the freedom of dancing and showcasing music through movement.

7) What are your dreams and aspirations?
We do not want this group to be a one-off thing. We hope to continue to dance together as a group and join other competitions together. Our goals are long term and we hope to compete overseas on an international level one day.

8) What do you think is the most distinctive feature of your team?
Our crew always get injuries. We do warm-up and stretch, however we somehow always get injuries during trainings and one of our members almost had to pull out in February due to a knee injury.

9) Anything to say to your friends and supporters?
We would like to thank our 4 choreographers and our NRA Family for supporting us all the way. We hope to have new supporters too during this journey and we hope everyone enjoys the finals on the 10th of May and has a great time together.

Here are some shots of them taken by me at the Prelims of Singapore Dance Delight Vol.5:
