Mary Hoskins
Bio: I began line dancing in 2009 after retiring from the Texas Department of Public Safety. I had no dance experience, but fell in love with line dancing. I was "encouraged" by my teacher Billie Burnett, to help teach. That led to me teaching the first hour and her teaching the second hour. I found out that meant she didn't come until the second hour. It went on like that for years until a few years ago, (maybe 2017) we talked Connie Shell into taking the class. That way she supplies the music and we are happy BRATS and Connie never has to worry about a sub.
