Oh, this is nice! Ellen Page announced on Instagram that shes married her
girlfriend, Emma Portner. Ellen and Emma. A cute couple:
Who is Emma Portner anyway? Like Page, shes Canadian. (Ottawa, in case that
matters.) Shes a professional dancer and choreographer. If we believe Instagram
(and I think in this case, we do), shes really talented!
According to a profile in The Cut:
"The way Portner moves has transfixed the dance world. In the past few years
alone, shes choreographed and starred in Justin Biebers music video for Life
Is Worth Living as well as a piece on his Purpose World Tour; founded her own
dance company first named Flockd, now called Emma Portner and Artists in
New York City; conceptualized a music video for indie artists Blood Orange;
taught classes in New York, Los Angeles, and her native Canada; and become the
youngest woman to ever choreograph a musical Bat Out of Hell, which premieres
in Toronto October 14 on Londons West End.
According to the Cut, Emma and Ellen met via Instagramafter Portner posted a
video that featured a song by Sylvan Esso, Page DMd her. Page began posting
photos of the two together over the summer, thus confirming their romance.
Another thing we know from Instagram is that the two regularly dance together,
which is, again, extremely cute.
