My name is Jazzy Ellis. I received my Intimacy Coordinator training from Intimacy Directors and Coordinators as a member of their first Level 3 certification cohort. An intimacy coordinator is an advocate, a liaison between actors and production, and a movement coach and choreographer regarding nudity, simulated sex, and other intimate and hyper-exposed scenes.
I adhere to the SAG-AFTRA Standards and Protocols for the Use of Intimacy Coordinators. I am certified in Mental Health First Aid. I have trained in and continue to train in bystander intervention, anti-racism, allyship & advocacy, sexual orientation, anti-harassment, and conflict resolution. Before working in film/TV, I worked as an educator, a professional dancer, and a lifelong advocate for the needs of marginalized people. I bring knowledge from 30+ years of movement training and work. My training focuses on the healing arts, as well. I am a certified yoga teacher, meditation teacher, reiki master, life coach, and retreat facilitator. I lived in the Ecuadorian Amazon learning healing practices and plant medicines from shamans in Shuar and Uwijint villages for my Senior Thesis at Princeton University.
