Reflecting on an Intimate 2022!

Dec 14, 2022

As we are wrapping up the 2022 season, we asked our certified intimacy professionals and teaching artists to share a few of their favorite projects they worked on this year and we were overwhelmed with the results! 

Take a look at this highlight reel from professionals who opted into sharing their 2022 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...
