THE LIFE OF KIM
Dance studio in Marietta to open in honor of local college student killed in car wreck
When their niece Kimberly Islas was killed in an alleged DUI crash, the Barron family was left feeling hopeless.
“She was so young and had so much more to do in life, it was devastating we had no idea how to move forward,” said Joselyn Barron, aunt of the victim.
It took time, but eventually the Barron family came up with an idea to honor their lost family member. The idea was to open a dance studio to encourage people of all levels of fitness to Keep It Moving.
“If you knew Kim, you knew she was such a free spirit, always ready for a workout and always encouraged other to be their best,” said Jessica Barron. “That’s the spirit we want to encourage here at KIM’s Dance studio, everyone is welcomed and encouraged to do their best! In addition, a portion of all profits from the studio will be donated to M.A.D.D. (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).”
The non-competitive dance classes are for beginners, professionals and those somewhere in between. Some of the offered classes include Zumba, Tap, Hip-Hop, Stilettos, Caribbean, Self-Defense and Contemporary.
