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:                


Welcome to 2016!   As I write this (in mid November) it is too soon to tell if we are going to have a decent winter.  Hopefully, this is true!  We always hate those winters where the weather makes things miserable!

At the November IDA meeting, the future of the IDA news was a huge topic of discussion.  Subscriptions have dropped by 36%. We are at a point where drastic action may be needed.  This drastic drop, we felt, was so bad that we needed to halt print publication. However, it was decided that we would publish the magazine for one more year. IF subscriptions pick up, we will continue publication of a print magazine.  If they do not, we will be forced to cease print publication and to strictly publish on the website all of our information. In just printing costs, we are losing around $.0207 per printed copy. When you add in the editor/webmaster costs, this figure is quite a bit higher.

We do not want to end publication of the magazine!  We need more subscriptions to continue printing.  Please renew, or start a subscription.  Help us save the magazine.

From all the above, it is more urgent than ever that you all get involved with IDA. it is YOUR organization. We need you time, your ideas, your energy to make it successful.  Attend our area meetings, attend state meetings and participate.

You can attend state meetings by Skype. Our normal Skype address is gary.hutton71.  The next state meeting is Sunday January 10, at 2PM. the location is listed in the announcement in the magazine and elsewhere on the website.

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
