On Wednesday, March 2, members of the Mesquite Recreation Center line dancing classes gathered to honor their more than a decade long instructor, Rebecca Hartley.
Rebecca began taking line dancing when her husband passes away many years ago. Her love for the dance grew and when the opportunity to teach the class herself rose, Hartley seized the day. Hartley said, “Nobody else seemed interested in teaching the class themselves so that was that; I took over teaching. I really get much more out of the class than I give. I just am so honored to be teaching and dancing with all these wonderful people, I can’t imagine doing anything else. I absolutely love what I do and the people I’m able to share it with.”
