Welcome to the official web site of the Indiana Dance Leaders Association (IDLA). We are a Dance Leaders organization providing leadership and education for over 50 years.

(ISDCA) Indiana Square Dance Callers Association was established in 1953 and has a proud history as a combined leaders organization. In late 2008 we changed the association name to Indiana Dance Leaders Association.

Membership is open to all leaders, and to anyone wishing to pursue a Dance Leader career.
