CANCELED: RSCDS Central Iowa Ball Weekend
Sadly, the 29th Annual RSCDS Central Iowa Ball Weekend is canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The board determined that holding the Ball would put at risk the safety and wellness of friends in the dance and wider communities. Anyone who sent in a registration will receive a full refund. The tentative plan for next year’s Ball will be May 1, 2021 at the Iowa State University Memorial Union. Stay well and we look forward to dancing together again.
