Indiana Dancers Association

Welcome to the web site of the Indiana Dancers Association (IDA). Our purpose is to promote, sponsor, and provide for the cultural development and maintenance of high standards of square and round dancing. We assist in the formation of square and round dance clubs, cooperate with callers, cuers, civic and community organizations sponsoring square and round dance activities. We work to further friendly relations among our members and member clubs and encourage square and round dancing as a wholesome social recreation.

This web site is intended to provide the visitor with information about square dance clubs, callers and cuers, when and where dances are held, and contact information. The navigation bar at your left will help you find whatever you're looking for.



From the Presidents:                


Wow! Can it really be July already? The year is flying by at a very fast pace. During these summer months when a number of clubs aren't dancing, it is your time to go out and attend clubs that you might not normally get to dance with. Remember, never miss a change to dance!

Speaking of that, we have a special "free dance" in Connersville on Saturday, July 9 from 7-9 PM. we are dancing for the "Relay for Live" event. The organizers of the event want dancing as part of the entertainment. They are also hoping that this dance will spark a renewed interest in our hobby in the area.  Please come and dance with us. The dance is in Roberts Park. Enter at the square dance sign off of 30th street. If you can't find us call my cell at 765-215-5924. Dennis Clark, Doris Swain and Bonnie Lawrence will be leading is in dancing.

On another note, we are looking for a new fund raiser for IDA and the clubs. If you have any suggestions or know someone who does, please contact any area or state officers and let us know. We have been brainstorming ideas but are having difficulty coming up with a good solution.

As I always say, this is YOUR organization! It works best when YOU get involved. We need you input to make it succeed!

For those that are taking advantage of the IMS fund raisers and need alcohol serving information, we have received this about your ATC certification.

Good afternoon.

It’s the law!  All alcohol permit holders must complete a certified alcohol server training program by April 30, 2014.  Knowing this could pose a challenge, both geographically and/or financially for many not-for-profit organizations; we have established a relationship with “Safe Servers of Indiana” to help with this certification.  Thorough their statewide coverage, you will be able to attend a class near your district, all at a considerably reduced price (only $10/person.)

 We have provided Dave McRee and his staff with a list of organizations that will require the certification.  Please watch for an email from them or you may contact them directly at or to get or set up a training class.  If you have any questions, please let me know. 

     Thanks, Denny
