Meet Violetta Komyshan.
“West Side Story” star Ansel Elgort has been dating Komyshan since they met at LaGuardia High School in early 2010s, only briefly breaking up in 2014. The couple doesn’t keep their relationship all that quiet — they frequently post PDA-filled photos on Instagram — but Komyshan, 23, is much more private than Elgort, 26.
Here is what you should know about Komyshan:
She's a ballerina

Komyshan started dancing as a child and majored in dance at LaGuardia. She attended college for two years before leaving to join the BalletNext company.
“I was leaving school every day and running to dance classes,” she told The Post last year. “I knew that whatever I was studying wasn’t my priority.”
She’s no longer with BalletNext but she’s still dancing, having gone on to perform in “The Master and Form” at the Whitney Museum’s 2019 Biennial.
She's not from the US
Born in Toronto, Komyshan didn’t come to New York City until she was 5 years old after living in Ukraine for a year. Her parents, both originally from the Eastern European nation, took her there so she could get to know her family.
She loves to travel
Komyshan has traveled the world, both with and without her “Goldfinch”-starring boyfriend. She’s shared photos with her 1.1 million Instagram followers taken in Guatamala, the Dominican Republic, Hawaii, Spain, Brazil and more countries.
“It’s been so incredible learning about the history and philosophy of yoga and meditation here in the most beautiful setting,” she captioned photos from her Guatamala trip.
She's an experienced scuba diver
Komyshan loves to go under the sea. While traveling in Ibiza, Spain, Komyshan shared incredible photos of herself diving underwater to explore some wreckage.
“So happy to be diving again. We got to explore a factory wreck,” she wrote. “So amazing how a fallen structure could become home to so many creatures. Thanks @diranh2o for the photos and the video of our little triggerfish friend.”
She doubles as a fitness instructor
With 20 minutes to spare anyone can become toned like Komyshan. The fit dancer created a short-and-sweet video with easy-to-follow ballet-inspired moves so that her fans and followers can get tight butts.
“Let’s do five workouts combining stretches and movements to give us that dancer body we’ve all been dreaming of,” her video promises.
