SYNOPSIS: Hold on for a hilarious spoof on the popular television show, Dancing with the Stars. Instead of Hollywood's elite competing on Dancing with the Olympians, Greek gods and goddesses boogie and swirl their way to the top. Hosted by Hermes, messenger of the gods and trickster, the show's judges are the nerdy and prudish Athena, goddess of wisdom, accompanied by her close companion, the cheer-leading goddess of victory, Nike, surfer dude Poseidon, god of the ocean, and motherly Hestia, goddess of the hearth and home. Although a dancing competition, relatively little dancing happens. Zeus and Hera, king and queen of the Olympians, don't see the need to dance. Aphrodite refuses to dance with a partner, and the evil enchantress, Circe, turned her partner into a pig. Terpsichore, the muse of dance, can't actually dance, and the Furies just showed up to torment the losers. Dancing with the Olympians is a zany comedy full of fun, over-the-top characters and provides an excellent way to educate students about Greek mythology.
