Former professional dancer Mariel Greenlee-Lungu recently founded Indy Dance Council, an online platform to promote and organize all things happening in the Indianapolis dance scene.

IDC was formed out of a passion to unite and share all the dance that happens in Indianapolis, both within the dance community and with the audience who supports them.

IDC plans to create initiatives that help shape the future of dance in Indianapolis and surrounding areas, and they ask the community to be constantly informing the website and all initiatives.

She also hopes this will expand interest in dance and attract new audiences. 

Anyone in the state can go on the website and make a listing for dance classes, studio information, upcoming performances, even health care resources for professional dancers who may become injured, and much more.
