Middle Eastern Arts and Dance



Dean of the School of Middle Eastern Arts

Dame Hroony Rognvaldsdottir (OP, OL)


Welcome to all new and long-time friends!

This promises to be another exciting year, from language to performance, self care, history, and music to feed the body, mind, and soul. Once again we will have an amazing Hafla (party) for all to celebrate and gather in friendship.

Thank you to all who are sharing your passions and knowledge with us, as well as those who come to learn and have fun. PLEASE REMEMBER to BRING WATER to all classes and activities!

Throughout the years, this community has put so much heart into our space. Last year we danced under a new tent on an amazing floor. Our walls support some of the most beautiful banners, I can’t wait to see you all there, so please come by and take classes, dance, sing, play, speak, learn, but most of all, be part of this diverse community.

We have a Facebook presence, please join us at Pennsic Middle Eastern Activities.

The Middle Eastern Tent is located on the Great Middle Highway, across from Runestone Park (see map).
