Big Band Dance Series

The Perfect Venue For Your Event

For generations, Indianapolis men and women have associated the words “The Indiana Roof” with fond memories of rustling prom dresses, swinging dance bands and romantic waltzes under twinkling Spanish skies.

Teenagers swooned over singing stars like Julius LaRosa in concert and danced the night away at their senior proms in the ‘50s. In keeping with the Roof’s original purpose, we have kept the tradition of big bands and dancing alive by featuring several Big Band Dance events a year.
