Who is Elliot Page’s wife, Emma Portner? 5 things to know about the dancer

Emma Portner is well-known as the loving and supportive wife of Elliot Page. On Tuesday, she proudly stood by her spouse as he bravely came out to the world as a transgender person.

However, years prior to being linked to her famous partner, the 26-year-old made a name for herself in the dance community, choreographing for one of the biggest stars in the music industry.

Here are five facts to know about Portner:

She is an award-winning dancer.

Portner has been dancing since the age of 3. According to her bio, American Dance Awards named her Young Choreographer of the Year in 2014 at 20 years old. She also earned top placement at the Capezio A.C.E. Awards.

She has danced and choreographed for Justin Bieber.

The Canadian-born entertainer got her big break in 2015, when she starred in Bieber’s music video for “Live Is Worth Living,” and later choreographed the pop star’s Purpose World Tour in 2016.

However, in 2019, Portner spoke out about her time working for Bieber, 26, and claimed she got paid “barely anything” for her work.

“I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time and effort. Twice,” she said. “For content you made millions off of. While I made zilch.”

She now teaches at Broadway Dance Center

Portner is listed as a contemporary jazz teacher for New York’s Broadway Dance Center. According to the class descriptions, she uses dance “as an emotional outlet, [to] merge styles, and push the limits of the human body to find unknown shapes and capabilities.”

Aside from teaching, she also continues to pursue dance on film, recently choreographing and performing for indie artist Blood Orange.

She is not afraid to pose nude

Portner has posted photos of herself naked on her Instagram as an expression of her art. In June 2019, she and Page both posed topless together in honor of Pride Month.

She resides in New York City with Page

Portner and Page, 30, tied the knot in 2018. While many of the details of their nuptials were not disclosed, the couple has never been shy to show their love for one another on social media.

At the time, Page captioned a picture of the pair’s hands showcasing their wedding bands, “Can’t believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife.”
