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:                

Chuck and I would like to thank the members of IDA for allowing us to serve as your President for the past two years. We appreciate your trust and your encouragement, and we hope that you will give your support to the 2015 officers as they continue to promote Square Dancing in Indiana.

 Just as the elected officers have certain duties, so do the members of IDA, although theirs are not as clearly defined. We are asking that you share your ideas and your talents with the organization, as a whole, and with your clubs. We are asking you to let others know about the fun and fellowship of square dancing so that they have the opportunity to join in. And we are asking you to lend your support to the local callers and cuers and let them know how much you appreciate their efforts to continue our tradition.

John and Carolyn Cook (President), Dave and Patti Woods (Vice-President), Julie and Danny Branham (Treasurer), and Sharon Hamilton (Secretary) have been elected and agreed to serve. But, the officers can’t do everything themselves. They need help from the other members. They may ask you to serve on a committee or be part of a demonstration or help raise funds. We  hope you do whatever you can to help.  And. . .

 Keep Dancing! 

 Share the fun and friendship.

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
