Dance Naked Productions
the art of sexual expression
Dance Naked Productions is a sex-positive theater company committed to illuminating sexual expression. We create theater to expand minds and deepen understanding of sexuality and eroticism.

Hi, I'm Eleanor
I make art about sex.
My goal is to celebrate sex stories, to normalize and encourage sexual expression, to create space for people to feel safe revealing their WHOLE selves. I create fun and playful ways to help people explore their sexuality, to discover their erotic imagination.
So, do we really dance naked? Sometimes, but mostly, it's a metaphor.
I called my company Dance Naked Productions because I wanted to make theater about joyful vulnerability, and showing up as our authentic selves.
You'll find live performances, workshops, retreats, private coaching, and special events - all designed to help you access your erotic genius!
Please explore the site, maybe check out a few videos (but if you can, see a show live - everything is better in the flesh!). I'd love to see you at the theater, host you in a workshop, or meet you online, and help uncover YOUR sex stories (and share a few of my own!)
While I am based out of Portland, OR I love to travel and take my shows on tour. If you'd like to see me in your city, get in touch!
I am DEEPLY grateful for the support I receive on Patreon. I spent 25 years of my life waiting tables to finance my theater habit, and for the first time ever I am able to focus entirely on making ART. To my patrons - THANK YOU. Your generosity is making this possible.
Viva la sexual revolution~

Dance Naked Productions artistic director
If sex and creativity are often seen by dictators as subversive activities, it's because they lead to the knowledge that you own your own body (and with it your own voice), and that's the most revolutionary insight of all.

What We Do
Started in 2008, Dance Naked’s first show, Inviting Desire, explored women’s sexual fantasies. The company has grown to include performers from across the gender spectrum, and is dedicated to exploring and celebrating all manner of sexual expression. We are delighted to be the recipients of a 2018 RACC grant to help fund and advance the Come Inside Festival.
I offer workshops to all kinds of people, not just performers. The fuel of our erotic imagination isn't limited to "artists." Every human alive has a sexuality. Every human is rich with creative potential. My goal with every workshop I teach is to help you make that connection.
Whether you are looking for personal coaching or creative coaching, I'm here to help. We can meet online, or in person (if you are near Portland, Oregon). I so look forward to connecting with you.
