Ballet Magnificat! visits Family Life
The nation’s first professional Christian ballet company, Ballet Magnificat!, will perform its holocaust-themed ballet “Hiding Place,” March 11-13, at Family Life in Bath as a series of dinner and dessert performances. The ballet is based off Corrie ten Boom’s classic book, “The Hiding Place."

Ballet Magnificat! performs "Hiding Place" as a powerful story of faith and forgiveness. Corrie ten Boom and her sister, Betsie, are devoted Christians searching for possibilities to help their life-long Jewish neighbors and friends find safety from the Nazis in a secret room built in the wall of their home. Eventually they are discovered and transported to one of the most unendurable concentration camps for women.
“There is no denying the emotional power of this performance,” says Rick Snavely, president of Family Life. “The dancers handle the Nazi’s brutalization of the Jews with sensitivity and yet genuinely portray the suffering of God’s people without losing sight of God’s grace and hope in the middle of it all. It’s going to be an unforgettable evening.”
Dance with Ballet Magnificat!
On March 12, Family Life and Ballet Magnificat! will offer a creative dance workshop for dancers of all ages and skill levels. Ballet Mag, as fans lovingly call them, is the nation’s first professional Christian ballet company that performs all over the world for the glory of God.
Students of the workshop will explore their God-given talents through dance and will leave with an understanding of how to use creative movement to interpret songs, scripture, and themes. Click here for more information.
