IDA
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.

Bylaws

IDA News "News"

For the last several years, the "printed" copy of the IDA News has been loosing money, as subscribership has dropped consistently.  The next issue (Jan/Feb) has only 90 subscribers. For that reason, and on advise from the IDA News governing board, IDA has voted to suspend the 'printed' issue of the IDA news. We encourage members to use the web site for dance information, but for those that want a printed schedule of dances, we will be placing a PDF file on this page that contains dance information for that month. For those without a computer or smart phone, we encourage a club member to help print the information for them. If you have any questions, please call or Email me at idanews2011@hotmail.com, or 765 215-7545.

From the Presidents:                

 

 

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that the February issue is the last “printed” issue of IDA News.  The cost to produce and mail the magazine has risen to such a level that we must suspend publication.  Subscriptions have dropped to 108 which makes continued printing unsustainable.

 The publication is not going away.  From now on it will be an ezine at www.indancers.org.   Dance schedules will be available on the web site.  There will be a printable PDF file of each month’s schedule which you can download and print out.  We encourage clubs to print out this schedule and have it available at your dances.  (PDF files require ADOBE software which is free on the internet.)

 For Carolyn and I this is a very sad moment.  We actually have a bound set of every issue of IDA news.  We love looking at old issues to the see the history of IDA. 

 As we start 2017 let us all work to grow our hobby!  If we can grow our numbers, we can hopefully resume publication in the future!

 As I always say, remember that IDA is your organization!  It works best when we all get involved.  Please attend area and state meetings!  We need your time, ideas and energy!
