This is an ambigram design requested by a follower (from the Netherlands) on my blog. She had seen the "Georgia" ambigram and wanted a design in the same style. Here is her description of the word and what it means to her:

"In Greek mythology, Terpsichore (in Greek: Τερψιχόρη) "delight of dancing" was one of the nine Muses, ruling over dance and the dramatic chorus. She lends her name to the word "terpsichorean" which means "of or relating to dance". She is sometimes said to be the mother of the Sirens by Achelous. Her name comes from the Greek words τέρπω ("delight") and χoρός ("dance").
I [have been dancing] since I was 4 years old and for me it's not only a hobby but a way of life. For me Terpsichore would mean 'she who loves to dance'."

It was a great challenge. If you have any ideas for ambigrams, please leave a comment.
