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 over and fall is upon us!  The new dance year has begun.  We held a great dance at the State Museum.  Clubs are back dancing and lessons have started.  It is a most exciting time of the year.  Many clubs are still doing exhibitions and demo’s.  If you have the chance to participate in such an event, do so.   This is our advertising.  This is how we grow our hobby.

The State Convention is rapidly approaching.  This is our 3rd year at the hotel/casino in French Lick.  We love the facility and our attendance has been growing!  Last year we had just over 500 and with the current trend, we should beat that!  If you haven’t registered do so now!  Go to the convention page on the website for the registration form.

The next state meeting is on November 12.  This is when we elect officers for next year.  We will make a Skype link available so you can attend remotely.  We will publish the skype address prior to the meeting.  If you wish to skype in and vote, you will need to email Nina Upton (IDA Secretary) at and let her know of your intentions.

As I always say,  this is your organization!  It works best when we all get involved.  Come to area and state meetings and give us your input and knowledge.
