Welcome to NORTEX

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

Dear NORTEX Family,

For the last several months, we have had very unexpected disruption of our dancing routine. Life has indeed made a sharp turn and none of us were prepared. How do you prepare for your life to be upturned? You cannot; however, you can lend a helping hand by doing things for others, as some of the NORTEX dancers have done by making masks, making or delivering meals, making homemade bread and taking to club members, and bringing to the forefront your flexibility and patience. Thank you, NORTEX Family, for staying the course of “Stay Home, Stay Safe” and by providing a helping hand any way you could. You are indeed A Fellowship of Stars!

Thank you to the NORTEX Delegates for agreeing to an “electronic meeting” for April business. Your support of this method was greatly appreciated. The results from the meeting have been published in this Promenade.

As of April 17, Texas Governor Abbott has issued Executive Orders to get our state economy active again. His Executive Order does not release us to gather for square and round dancing or clogging. I join each of you in hoping these restrictions will be lifted as we go through the stages of reopening our State, and that we will be dancing in June. As we look forward to being on the dance floor and seeing our friends, we must continue to demonstrate the positive attitudes of flexibility and patience. Life after the coronavirus pandemic will be different; dancing will be different. Be ready to support each other when the music resumes; be ready to dance and be ready for fun!

Continue to maintain the dancers’ positive attitude. Be of good cheer and trust in God to see us through these challenging times.

When you can’t find the Sunshine, BE the Sunshine.

Yellow Rocks,

Debbie Anderson
