Over the last decade, we have held two major events as our way of honoring our members by providing additional training opportunities, networking, and performance experiences. The Fall Carnival (formerly the Summer Carnival) and the Spring Bazaar (formerly the Winter Bazaar) brings together the best parts of being in the Collective.
The Fall Carnival is our annual fundraiser. It is a rotating (sometimes themed) convention that showcases a hosting member’s studio, club, and/or troupe. The host location moves each year across the state so that we can cater to our members throughout the Midwest who may not have the opportunity to attend the Spring Bazaar in Indianapolis.
*Due to COVID and Social Distancing Precautions, this year’s Fall Carnival on October 17, 2020 will be online.*
Our members voted and you got it! Pre-register to take the online workshops from our world-class guest teachers. This year we are offering: Oriental Baladi with Lebanese Simon and Indian Fusion with Katie Bhairavi Marshall and the Darshan Dance Company. In addition to this wonderful opportunity, we will be streaming online shopping from select vendors, and a Virtual Hafla performance.

The Spring Bazaar is our most attended event. Usually held in Indianapolis, this members showcase allows attendees to Meet the Board Members, and get to know about upcoming volunteer positions. Once there you can partake in lively performances from musicians, students, and teachers. It is encouraged to enjoy the many workshops, seminars, and specialty training found at various times throughout the facility. Plus, we have an open floor where you can shop, promote your business, sell items, or participate in our Shop-n-Swap members exchange at thrift store prices. If you are not a member, you can sign up here: Join INBC!
Details and dates for the Spring Bazaar with be available after Nov 2020. Stay tuned to our social media pages, emails to our members, and other announcements.
