Ramona Pace
Bio: Started line dancing in 1993 with Bob Bedient and Pat Engles at Spring Branch Community Center on Pech Road. When Pat asked me to teach her beginner's class, I became very dedicated to the class and added intermediate line dance as well. My father taught ballroom and latin dance, so I did grow up with a dance background. After the Trini Mendenhall Community Center was built, my classes moved to the beautiful new building at 1414 Wirt Road.
