Everything you ever wanted to know about

The Pennsic 49 School of (European) Dance

and then some.
Come one, come all, and join with your friends to once again dance the days and nights away at the Pennsic War! We have many classes to sharpen your skills, and many balls to show them off at! Make new friends, learn a new dance or twelve, and most of all, have fun!

Pennsic University Videos (2021)

Pennsic University is organizing a playlist of non-interactive video class for August, 2021. Please volunteer by adding a class on Thing. If you want to play music in your video, please contact Gregory for details about how to do so without causing "copyright strikes" from YouTube's Content ID system.

Virtual Pennsic Dance (2021)

Gregory is organizing a few Zooms for the weekend of Saturday August 21st and Sunday August 22nd. So far the idea list is:

Dance classes from some teachers who prefer interactive Zoom to recorded videos

Dancer Social -- all are welcome to socialize with long-lost friends!

Known World Dance Informational Meeting

There are currently no bids for future KWDS events, so we'll begin with some past KWDS organizers describing how they've done it in the past, and hopefully some folks interested in running it in the future will ask some questions and/or announce their plans.

Dance Staff get-together -- including potential new staff!

Dance at Pennsic runs smoothly through the efforts of many people, from teachers to the folks who make sure the tent remains clean and well-organized. We'll talk about 2022's staffing, and if you're interested in helping out someday, please attend!


The Dean of Pennsic 49 Dance will be Master Gregory Blount, no matter what year it ends up happening.


Gregory is interested in new volunteers for a new year! Contact him at his official email to volunteer.

Not sure if you have useful skills? Ask anyway: we will make a job that fits what you can do, or what you want to learn!

  • Drop Dead: Countess Judith of Northumbria
  • Music Coordinator: Master Albrecht Catsprey
  • Web Minister: the aforesaid Gregory Blount


Thing is now accepting class and evening theme dancing proposals.

We're very interested in new teachers, and it's totally fine if you're nervous about volunteering... drop Gregory a line and we'll talk!

Revels and Socials

Volunteer to lead nightly dancing!

Musicians and Music

The music collection for Pennsic 49 will be superb, but won't be out until May 2022 or so.

Meanwhile, you can check out the 2019 Pennsic Pile (revision E.) You might find Aaron's Fakebook useful.

Ball Set Lists


Updated information will appear on this webpage, on our Facebook page, or you can email the Dean to request email updates.
