This #BTS Footage of Emma Portner Choreographing a Music Video Is the Coolest Thing
As soon as we see Emma Portner's name attached to a project, we immediately know it's going to be magical.
And such was the case with singer/songwriter Maggie Roger's latest music video for her song "Fallingwater." We were already obsessed with the movement to begin with, but once we found out Portner was the one who dreamed up the dancing, we entered into a level of obsession that there's no returning from.
Rogers recently posted some #BTS footage on Instagram of the choreographic process with Portner and It. Is. Everything (and more). You're welcome, dance world.
See for yourself, and catch the finished product below:
Ralph Lauren is kicking off the celebration bright and early with a gender-neutral capsule collection featuring a rainbow version (naturally) of its pony logo. And the brand chose a bunch of influential LGBTQIA+ community members to model the looks—including our favorite danseur in heels, Houston Ballet soloist Harper Watters.

Do you have a "Strictly Ballet"–sized hole in your heart? Good news: The upcoming docuseries "On Pointe" just might fill it.
The School of American Ballet is teaming up with Imagine Documentaries and DCTV for the project. Though it's not yet clear where "On Pointe" will air, we do know that it'll follow talented SAB students preparing for professional ballet careers—much as Teen Vogue's popular "Strictly Ballet" web series did back in the day. But "On Pointe" marks the first time documentary filmmakers have been allowed access to the school, and it sounds like it'll paint an even more complete picture of the dancers' lives inside and outside the studio.
Choreographer Bob Fosse's signature style—with its jazz hands, inverted knees, and slouched shoulders—is still a huge influence in the dance world (and, thanks to the gloriously dancyFX series "Fosse/Verdon," the TV world). But while you know to expect plenty of Fosse-isms during a stage performance of Chicago or Sweet Charity, Fosse's legacy has also seeped into pop music culture, inspiring the likes of Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. Here are just six of the many music videos that reference Fosse's iconic works.
