RFDC holds joint events that

bring our member groups together

to share dances – along with food

and fellowship in a party atmosphere.

In July 2017 we celebrated National Dance Day with some impromptu outdoor dancing near the riverfront in downtown Columbus.  We’ll do something similar in 2018; check back in spring for more information.

We celebrate the new year with an annual Midwinter Party in early January.  Those who braved the snow and wind for Midwinter 2018 had a fine time, with live dance music and plenty of tasty snacks.  We expect to hold our 15th Annual Midwinter Party on January 12, 2019.  Look for more information in the fall.
