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:                

Carolyn and I would like to thank the outgoing officers for their hard work over that last few years.  Lois and Chuck, Nadine, Gary and Shirley, you all did a great job.  We will be counting on you to help us as the new team takes office.   You have all faced some difficult decisions and problems and have handled them well.

It is time for the New Dancers Roundup in Noblesville.  This dance has been the favorite dance for the two of us for many, many years.  Meeting and getting to dance with new dancers is always a great experience.  These folks bring a renewed enthusiasm to our hobby.  They are the lifeblood of square dancing. 

We encourage all “experienced” dancers to attend as well.  The dance is one of only two dances each year which is heavily attended by dancers from all across our great state.  There are many dancers that we only get to see at the dance and State Convention.  We look forward to meeting our old friends and making new ones!  Join us for the fun and excitement on March 29th.

As Carolyn and I return to office we want to remind all of you that IDA is YOUR organization.  It works best when we all get involved.  We need your ideas, your energy, your help and support to make it work!  Attend your area meetings to boost dancing in your area!  Come to the state meetings in Indianapolis!  Get involved!   I have heard many times that a small group runs IDA.  Well, if that is true, it is an easy group to join.

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
