My name is Brooke M. Haney (They/she). I'm a NYC based intimacy coordinator and was one of the first 50 intimacy coordinators recognized as qualified by SAG/AFTRA. I love to travel and have worked regionally in the states and internationally in the Philippines, Germany, Kenya and Switzerland. My background is in acting and I've worked in theatre, film, TV and academia.
As an actor, I was often cast in roles where the character experienced trauma, and I wanted something that allowed me to go deep into the character, but not get stuck there. So, I created The Actor’s Warm Down, a 20 minute closure practice for actors working on difficult material.
I'm very excited that my first book, The Intimacy Coordinator's Guidebook: Specialties for Stage and Screen is coming out in early 2024 from Routledge Publishing.
As a very proud Queer, non-binary intimacy choreographer, I have done extensive study on how to queer the lens of intimate storytelling and am most excited when I get to work on queer content.
I've work with CBS, Warner Brothers, Paramount+, Amazon Prime, Disney, 20th Centruy Fox as well as on films and in theatre.
Additionally, I've intimacy choreographed shows and taught workshops at Vassar College, Syracuse University, NYU, University of Central Florida, Ventura College and Marymount Manhattan College where they also taught for 8 years. I have my BA from the University of Washington and MFA from the University of Central Florida.
I hope we get to work together!
