Welcome to NORTEX

Please check the “COVID19 Dance Cancellation” tab above for the latest club information on dances and cancellations.


October 2020 is the first month we are publishing the Promenade “online only”.  To view, please go to the NORTEX website, www.nortex.org, and click on “Online Promenade”, then choose a month. Once the cover of the selected month is on the screen, look just below the cover for the icons. To the right of center are 1) a download icon and 2) a printer icon. Select either of these icons and a larger version of the Promenade will display. You can read and/or print all or part of the Promenade.

In August, we had two “mini” Installation meetings in Garland and Irving.  At these outdoor meetings, NORTEX Officers were presented appreciation gifts for their 2019-2020 service and installed for 2020-2021.  The Dancers of the Year, Audrey Mansell, Charlie & Linda Harris, and Sam & Mary Stephens, were presented plaques and bars, and Roadrunners were recognized as the 2019-2020 Club of the Year.  Because 2020 Round-Up was cancelled due to the pandemic, The Marvin & Helen Matus Lifetime Achievement Award was presented at the Irving outdoor meeting to Allan & Dorothy Mussler from Circle I.  Congratulations to all the awardees!!  There is more information on these presentations in this issue.

I’m sure many of you are aware that some square and round dancing has restarted in our area and places close to the Metroplex.  Some NORTEX dancers have also been experiencing virtual dancing though Facebook and/or Zoom.  To those of you who have decided to dance: Please stay safe!

 Hold on to hope and faith for brighter days.  Dancing will be back.

Virtual Yellow Rocks,
