Education / Dance in the Classroom / Penelope’s Odyssey

Penelope’s Odyssey

Classroom lessons, workshops and an offsite performance introduce students to the Greek epic, from a woman’s perspective. Large projections, fast choreography, and underwater dance draw middle schoolers and highschoolers alike into this 3,000-year-old classic.

The ancient Greeks deeply valued humanities, arts, and philosophy for their ability to inform and transform. Through myths they explained why we do what we do, and how we should ideally act. Their epics inspired people to think deeply. They still do. Study Guides available in Spanish and English.
