About Ballet Magnificat!

About Us

Ballet Magnificat! was founded in 1986. Magnificat is Latin for "to magnify Him".  It is derived from "Mary's Song" of praise in the 1st Chapter of the Gospel of Luke when she first learned she was to be the mother of the Messiah. Ballet Magnificat! is an arts organization dedicated to presenting the good news of Jesus Christ to the whole world. Our professional touring companies have performed nationally and internationally, ministering to audiences in the United States as well as Czech Republic, Canada, Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Singapore, Germany,  Netherlands, Slovakia, Poland, Belgium, Greece, France, Italy, Macedonia, Kosovo, Israel, Colombia, Puerto Rico,  Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Korea, Philippines, and China.

Ballet Magnificat! School of the Arts was established in 1989 and presently has 300 students enrolled. The Summer Dance Intensive and Teachers Workshop, which attracts dancers and teachers nationally and internationally, was first held that same year. Headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, Ballet Magnificat! features dancers and teachers who share our vision to pursue excellence in the arts. The School of the Arts fosters technical and spiritual training of dancers of all ages through specialized class instruction and workshops.

Our heart's desire is to be in that place where we can be of the most service to further His Kingdom.  We are grateful to be a part of the body of Christ, and we pray that God will use our ministry to be a blessing to you.
