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:                



Summer is in full swing!  Unfortunately so is the rain!  Wow!  We need to ship some of this rain to the west coast so they can put an end to their drought. 

We have lots of good dances coming up.  The State Museum with Darrin Henry, Jimmy Robison and Bonnie Lawrence is on September 12.  Come join us for our 11th year at this wonderful facility.  We put on a great spectacle for the museum and their visitors.  Wear your best colors so we can make a really good show!   Bring your lesson flyers and other information to share.  Some clubs have done quite well at attracting folks to lessons at this event.

 The Indiana Square and Round dance convention is moving to a new location.  We are dancing at the French Lick Resort and Casino.   Carolyn and I have visited the site twice and are very impressed.  We feel that you will truly enjoy dancing there.  The last time I checked with the board we have a large group of callers and cuers for your enjoyment.  Jack Pladdys is the featured caller on Friday.  He will do a great job.  This is our 26th convention.  Please come and join us for this event.

 Again, as I always say, IDA is your organization!  It works best when YOU get involved.  IDA needs you, your ideas, your help!  Please come out to one of the meetings and get involved!

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
