Ballet Magnificat-Magnificent!

We were blessed to have the opportunity to see Ballet Magnificat, a Christian, internationally-renowned dance company, perform in the Cleveland area.

I have been wanting to see the Alpha Company perform since last year at this time when I first learned about Ballet Magnificat while searching Google for "Christian ballet" for my little girl who loves ballet.  Unfortunately, I had just missed last year's performance in our area.  The Lord is faithful though, and here we are this year finally getting to see Ballet Magnificat perform live.

Although we have seen some of their performances on DVD, I was unprepared for how powerful the performances were in person.  Our favorite was Deliverance, a production chronicling in song and dance with wonderful costuming the journey of the Israelites out of Egypt and ending with the ultimate deliverance of all of us from sin through the death and resurrection of JESUS CHRIST.

I highly recommend that you check out their website to see if they will be performing in a city near you.

You can also purchase DVD's, posters and t-shirts to support the travel of the dancers to Europe to spread the Gospel through dance, music and evangelistic messages at the site.

Clips of the Ballet Magnificat performances can be found on youtube.com.  I feature some of them below.

For your more accomplished ballerina, the company offers summer training beginning at age 11 and advanced training for high school graduates as well. Our local ballet teacher has attended some of the summer training and very much enjoyed it.
