Selen Yilmaz / Founder of JOIMOVE, International Author and Speaker BA (Hons) Classical Ballet, MBA (Hons) Arts Management

Hello, I’m Selen.

My biggest passion is: People! The fact that we are all uniquely interconnected has always fascinated me.

When Joimove came into my life as my second child, I had just given birth to my daughter and moved to Scotland. The expat life I built away from my family and friends, starting everything from scratch and the postpartum period were shaping together.

During this time, back in 2012, my dance workshops changed many lives, including mine! I was aware of how we were all starting to feel happier, and I was committed to making more people feel loved and less lonely!

Until then, I had different professions in many branches of the performing arts, especially as a professional ballet dancer, as an academician, choreographer, art director and ballet writer.
I have always kept the social responsibility projects at the center of my life. It is an endless pleasure for me to work with individuals of all ages and abilities.

Joimove was born from the desire to multiply this joyful effect. It has been developed with a multidisciplinary, social and holistic approach that helps us to recover physically and emotionally, especially in the face of difficult events in our lives.

Today, from universities to hospitals, workplaces to schools, care homes to community centres Joimove continues to transform lives joyfully with wonderful team of instructors and ambassadors.

I am delighted to be the mother of our Joimove and work together spreading joy as a global family.
