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:                


Winter is finally over!  Or at least we thought so!  As I write this (March 23), we are getting another 3” of snow.  But this is the end of the winter!  Spring is upon us with summer close behind.  Carolyn and I hope that all of you are getting out going to dances as much as you can!

We all need to support other clubs.  All of our clubs can use more support!  Hop in the car and go visit a club you don’t normally attend.  I will bet that you will be pleasantly surprised at how much fun  you will have.  When being interviewed about dancing, Carolyn said that you can go to a dance and not know anyone.  BUT at the end of the evening you have a roomful of new friends. 

 She is so right!  Square dancing is “Fun and Friendship” set to music.  We all have this big family of square dancers spread all over the world.  That’s right, all over the world.  Square dancing is done on every continent, except Antarctica, and maybe even there.  It is always called in English, even in China.  The caller might have a heavy accent but the words are English. 

We have lots of special dances coming up!  The Mini-marathon is on the 2nd of May.  We don’t have the location yet but it will out in my email as soon as we get it.  We have quite a group coming and can always use more dancers.  The State Museum dance in  September will close the summer schedule of dancing and help kick of the next year.

 We look forward to seeing all of you “across the square”.  Remember, IDA is your organization!  If you need help or have questions, contact of the officers or area chairman.  We will all be glad to help.

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
