Katie Groves Intimacy Coordinator

Katie Groves has a background that is a unique blend of movement, psychology, and performance.

Her foundation lies in performance and movement, honed through her University of Pretoria training with a focus on Laban and Bartenieff processes, as well as her majoring in Musical Theatre choreography in her final undergraduate year. This expertise in body language allows her to create clear and safe choreography for intimate scenes. Her honors in digital media, with a focus on screendance, adds another layer of understanding - the interplay between performer and camera in these vulnerable moments.

Katie's passion goes beyond technical knowledge. Her undergraduate degree in psychology and experience as an agent has continued to nurture a strong sense of advocacy.

She understands the performer's perspective, having been one herself since 2021. This empathy fuels her dedication to creating a safe and empowering space for actors during intimate scenes.

Katie's ongoing master's research, specializing in navigating intimate content for actresses, further demonstrates her commitment to pushing boundaries and advocating for performer well-being.
