Ballet companies make greater use of "intimacy directors."


Intimacy work for screen and theater doesn’t entirely translate to dance. In those fields, intimacy directors choreograph sexually charged scenes by setting the performers’ moves in advance, but for existing dance works, the choreography mostly can’t be altered, which limits their potential input. Dancers are also much more accustomed than other performers to close contact; some frequently performed ballet lifts, for instance, require men to hold their partners high up the thighs, or even by the crotch. Yet because touch is a requirement of the job, dancers have historically been discouraged from speaking up when they feel uncomfortable.
