One of the most exciting new elements of our upcoming tour is the addition of Ballet Magnificat! A Christian ballet troupe that dances to the glory of God, Ballet Magnificat! was created by award-winning dancer Kathy Thibodeaux and her husband, Keith (best known as “Little Ricky” on the I Love Lucy television series). Recognized for its excellence in the international world of ballet, America’s Premier Christian Ballet Company travels the globe delivering life-impacting performances. At Celebrate What Matters the dancers will help bring Scripture and song to life throughout the event. Rather than attempting to tell you what they’ll do, we thought we’d show you instead! See the video below for a peek at a rehearsal. If you’re wondering about the name: You already know “ballet” is a type of dance. “Magnificat” is Latin for “to magnify Him” from Mary’s song of praise when she first learned she was to be the mother of the Messiah (see Luke 1). Ballet Magnificat! is dedicated to presenting the good news of Jesus Christ to the world. See Ballet Magnificat! in person at Celebrate What Matters. The tour begins next month, heading to Columbus, OH; Oklahoma City, OK; Spokane, WA; Washington, DC; and Indianapolis, IN—and those are just the August cities!
