About Ballet Magnificat!
The People of Ballet Magnificat!
Joshua Wise was born and raised in Charleston, South Carolina always pursuing the arts but never saw himself in the world of dance. He began that journey of dance originally as a modern dancer and then furthering into ballet at the age of 20, receiving his training under the direction of Robert Ivey at the Robert Ivey Ballet. Joshua has performed many times as a guest artist with the Spoleto Festival USA which is internationally recognized as America’s premier performing arts festival. He attended College of Charleston with the prospects of being a veterinarian but the desire to use dance for the name of God was much greater. Joshua joined Ballet Magnificat!'s Trainee Program in 2011. In Fall 2014, Joshua was promoted to an Alpha Student Apprentice with Ballet Magnificat!, and in 2015, to Company Artist. In 2017, Joshua came off the road and serves as Ballet Magnificat!'s Multimedia Coordinator.
