Selen Yilmaz is the founder of JOIMOVE, professional ballerina and an international author. She moved from Istanbul to Glasgow with her 3 month-old baby girl in 2012. As an expat mother, ballet and dance teacher and babywearer, Selen worked with 600 families in Scotland within the first 6 months of establishing the phenomenal babywearing dance movement with her own baby. Inspired by growing demand in her own classes, she started working with health, babywearing, and education professionals to develop a safest babywearing dance program which became a leader in the world.
Following her Dance with Babies movement she developed a multi-cultural, international network with professionals that shares joyfulness with all ages and one that has transformed into the global brand and community, JOIMOVE International.
