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.



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, or 765 215-7545.

From the Presidents:                



Summer is here along with many chances to put square dancing in the limelight.  We have festivals, fairs, etc. that are just begging for entertainment.  We have two opportunities at the Indiana State Fair (August 13  & 20).  Contact Lois Daugherty at for details.  We have another at the Connersville Relay for Life event on Saturday, July 8.  Contact me at for detailsThere are many others.  These will be shared via email when they come to me.

On another topic, we are frequently asked “What does IDA say our club should do about….”  The question could be on any of a number of topics but the answer is always the same.  IDA does not, cannot tell clubs what they should do.  IDA’s purpose is to promote cooperation among clubs and to promote square dancing in all its forms.  Our officers can give you advice but it is up to the clubs to act on that advice.  Never hesitate to ask your IDA officers for help and advice.  We are here to help you when you need it.  We can point you to resources or share our experiences with you.

As summer progresses remember that the State Museum dance is coming on September 9 with Kristy Williams, Chuck Witt and Bonnie Lawrence.  State Convention is coming from November 3-5.  Keep an eye on the website for updates and club schedules.

As I always say, IDA is your organization! It works best when we all get involved!  Attend area meetings and the state meeting!  Help us help you!
