Contra dances have been a part of 3RFS for a couple of decades. Unfortunately, the core group of volunteers diminished to a point that it was too much for those who were left and the dances struggled to break even financially and there was a period of several years the Tri Cities was without regular contra dances. BUT...we are happy to announce the return of contra dance in 2018! We had a well attended kick off dance on January 26th and look forward to many more!
