Jayne Parker in the UK makes beautiful films with dancers and other 'choreographed' performance (eg in water) -

Good commissioning/festival organisations to check out inclued:

Filmmaker/curator Sarah Wood programmed two very interesting programmes for a project I did a few years ago -

Playing in the Light is a tour of films all about the way we see. The tour's focus on ideas of race and identity asks essential questions about the way the modern world is framed. In cinema stripped back to gesture, rhythm and motion, the weight of black culture, history, identity and politics are illuminated by the lightness and possibility of performance and dance.

And I'm contractually obliged, as it were, to mention my own (co-directed) dance film (or rather, choreographed..ex soldiers..) - Burlesque -
