Dear MMDCC/Ballroom Dance Dallas Members,
Hope you are all in good health and doing well!
Under current Covid-19 conditions, we are cancelling our next two dances on October 17th and 31st. We apologize to our patrons, bands, and instructors for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and continued support for our dances.
The board will meet via Zoom conference in October to discuss the possibility of holding dances beginning Nov. 21 and December 19th of this year with adherence to Texas Covid Guidelines. If any members have comments regarding the possibility of holding the two dances this year, please let us know so the board can consider your opinions.
Waiver of Liability: Since our dances are voluntary, the board will be instituting a Waiver of Liability to be signed by attendees which will protect and limit any liability to anyone including the Club, venue/staff, officers of the Club, instructors, DJ, bands, security personnel and attendees due to Covid-19.
Board positions open for 2021: If you are interested in joining the board for next year, please contact any board member. We now have 3 volunteers for our Nominating Committee which will qualify and officially nominate persons interested in serving on the board.
Reese Fuentez is moving from Dance Host Coordinator to the Position of Program and Entertainment Director which Randall Scott is vacating at the end of this year. Reese is also our DJ for recorded music dance nights and will play the music during our dance breaks. He has an extensive catalog of ballroom dance music and is familiar with the live ballroom bands in the DFW area.
Two positions are currently open for next year:
(1) Newsletter & Publicity and (2) Dance Host Coordinator
Board members leaving the Board:
Joe Smith has served our Club in the Newsletter and Publicity position for the past 3 years and will be taking leave at the end of this year. If you are interested in this position and have Facebook, Twitter, and online computer skills, please contact Joe.
Randall Scott has worked as Program & Entertainment Director for the past 2 years and will be leaving the board at the end of this year.
We thank Joe and Randall for their hard work and service to our Club.
News regarding the yearbook: We are combining our Yearbook for 2020-2021. Due to the Coronavirus members and sponsors for 2020 will be given extensions at no charge through the end of 2021. We will accept new member and sponsor applications for 2021 through the end of January and will add those names to the yearbook.
I will follow up with more news as we would all love to be dancing soon!
