An Intimate 2023: Wrapped!

Dec 18, 2023

Happy (Almost) New Year!!

As we are coming to the end of a VERY eventful 2023 season, we asked our certified intimacy professionals and teaching artists to share a few of their favorite projects they worked on this year! Amidst everything, including the strike, we are still astounded by all the work that has been done this year and so excited to continue it into 2024!

Take a look at this highlight reel from professionals who opted into sharing their 2023 experience. This list is just a snapshot of both theatrical and TV/Film work that have hired some of our favorite people (in alphabetical order) to keep their actors safe and choreograph some steamy moments...

Let us know in the comments - Have you seen any of the shows on the list???
