Joy Wilborn was a committed and vibrant company dancer at Studio of MoveMINT. In December of 2019, Joy passed away in a tragic accident and leapt into the arms of Jesus. She left behind family, friends, a community, and a dance studio who loved her deeply.
She was such a lighthouse and gem of a human being, packed with so much heart and so much fire. After Joy's passing, the Fort Worth community came together to support the Wilborn-Mayo family, raising money to support Joy's passions, her impact, and her legacy.
The Dancing for Joy Scholarship is an entire year of dance given to a dancer who embodies everything that we loved about Joy. We will honor her doing something she loved to do– and we hope to help our students feel close to her through MoveMINT, self-expression, and by spreading joy.
From assisting our littlest dancers in Creative MoveMINT all the way to assisting some of our pre-teen classes, Madison instantly makes all of our dancers feel loved and comfortable. Madison is a beloved, integral part of Studio of MoveMINT, and it’s a JOY to be her dance home.
We were delighted to pick Madison as recipient of the Dancing For Joy Scholarship for a second year.
Atlas has a very special place at Studio of MoveMINT as we have seen her grow the last few years. Atlas works very hard in class, and does so with a gracious, kind heart. It is an absolute JOY to have her in class and mentor her in an art form she clearly loves.
Atlas and her family are a very important part of Studio of MoveMINT, and we are humbled to support them through dance!
