Ballet Magnificat! School of the Arts opened its doors in 1989. Powered by the vision of Kathy Thibodeaux, founder of Ballet Magnificat!, the School focuses on training young dancers in excellence to use their gifts and talents to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ. Because of the annual student participation in the productions with the professional companies, Ballet Magnificat! School of the Arts offers the young dancers a unique opportunity to grow and study in a healthy, Christ-centered environment combined with inspiration of the Godly examples of the artists of the touring companies. The staff and faculty of the School have been called to develop each student to the best of their potential in their individual gifts.
