The Classical Gods of Ancient Greece


Greek Dance Goddess

Also known as Terpsikhore

Ta-da! She's the Goddess of Dramatic Dancing.

One of the Muses. Terpsichore looks after the weighty chorus line of ancient plays, which were far more serious than they are now, with little in the way of high-kicks and frilly costumes.

Strangely enough for a Dancing Goddess, she’s usually depicted sitting down.
