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.
