Ancient Glories: Stories from Greek Mythology

Artist: Noa Baum

Type: Assemblies / Performances

Description

This storytelling assembly introduces students to stories from the Greek mythology orally—the way these tales were passed down before they were written. Myths were used to highlight universal values and explain science and nature. Noa uses expressive movement and song to help students imagine and picture the story in their mind and student participation is encouraged.
